It would be a fair comment to say that the California-based megachurch does not do things by halves. For their first live worship release they have produced a comprehensive package offering a combination of songs on the CD, with artist interviews offering insight behind the songs, and their personal experience of worship on a DVD. In terms of a resource included with a worship disc, this is one of the best I have come across, although more footage of the music would have been good. Vocalists on the CD include Bethel's worship pastor Brian Johnson, Jeremy Riddle, who has released some fine solo recordings through Vineyard Music and Amanda Falk, the Canadian singer/songwriter Cross Rhythms wrote about last year. The songs are mostly self-penned with some help from Tim Hughes. From the energetic opener "You Are Good", it's clear the musical influences here are Delirious?, U2, and in the case of Amanda's vocals on the beautiful "I Will Exalt", Rebecca St James. I also noticed throughout the album, they have managed to capture the congregational singing even on the louder tracks. Generally in similar recording situations, you usually only hear the leader and the band except only in the quieter moments. Examples include the future worship anthem "One Thing Remains" featuring Brian on lead vocals, and the instantly catchy "Deep Cries Out" (with William Matthews on vocals).This is an excellent resource for churches and individuals alike and raises the bar for future live worship recordings.

This is a very accomplished worship album, with some, what are sure to be, 'anthemic' songs. The title track is immense, and the input from Jeremy Riddle on two tracks help to make this album one which is full of songs which exalt the name of Jesus! Well worth the purchase!

Simon's rating: 8/10

An amazing album ..great songs ...wonderful lyrics,,,blows any tired worn out/barren, widerness cobwebs away....or at least points you in a different direction..The Holy Spirit is sooooo present. The accompanying DVD is illuminating and strangely comforting...even the wonderful Bill Johnson had a few problems with one of his kids!HE NEVER LETS GO.
Think we will all be singing some of these very soon in the "Big Events".
A Great album ...I'm buying extra for friends.
