Wow, what a noise! Fantastic music and brilliant lyrics from this up-and-coming worship team based at New Zealand's Life Church. With the combination of energetic keyboards and soulful guitars, the Hillsong-esque approach to worship is showcased on this passionate studio album of self-penned anthems. From the explosive start to "Now I Know" right through to the soft close of the title track, 'For Freedom' fits the bill for pretty much all your worship needs. "Saviour Of All", a gentler ballad, boasts beautiful lyrics on top of a touching melody, and Geneva Peters' vocals soar angelically in "Oh Come". My main problem with the album, however, is that most of the songs are extended and repeated too much; the average track length is around 6:30-7 minutes, when really the majority would be improved by trimming. Aside from that, I have to say it's one of the best worship albums I've heard this year.

Debut studio album from the worship musicians at New Zealand Life Church.
LIFE Worship are thrilled to announce the release date of their much anticipated debut album For Freedom.
Set to coincide with LIFE's 20th anniversary, the worship album was birthed from the LIFE Worship Team in Auckland, recorded in early 2011 with a heart to inspire and equip local churches with fresh worship songs.
LIFE Worship is a group of passionate believers, who are convinced that Jesus is the one and only true God. A community of musicians and singers from a local church in Auckland, New Zealand called LIFE. They can be found serving their local congregation on a weekly basis. This is where it all began for them, and this is how they shall continue. The band represents the broader Worship and Creative Arts team at LIFE, which includes hundreds of faithful people.
The church was birthed from within the hearts of Senior Pastors Paul and Maree de Jong in 1991 and has grown into a thriving local church, committed to helping people cultivate vibrant and real relationships with God and with others. The vision of LIFE, to 'Impact and change our generation with the reality of Jesus'. Out of this foundation came a hunger within the LIFE Worship team to express what God was saying and doing in their local community, through songs. This album is exactly that...
