Reviewed by Jon Cooper

'Strong God' epitomises the slick, chrome-alloyed face of contemporary worship music. Euphoric keyboards soar over "woah-woah" congregational sing-alongs, while delay-laden high-end guitar noodling decorates predictable four chord progressions pilfered from U2's back pocket. The effect is to place the listener in a zone that is part teary youth event altar call, part next-big-thing hysteria in a dingy music festival tent. "Jesus Reigns" is a strong opener cut from the same cloth as Tim Hughes' more anthemic and sing-able tracks, while "More Than Enough" builds to soaring, stadium-filling bridge that is reprised, rather oddly, as a separate track immediately afterwards. Disappointingly, 'Strong God' then goes on to provide further evidence of the steady drip-feed of Coldplay's influence into contemporary Christian music; "Unassailable" bumbles along with a military-inspired drum rhythm, taking an age to really get anywhere other than the end, before "Who Compares" builds to a prime slice of soundtrack for a mobile network advertisement. You could be forgiven for falling into a coma-like state of MOR-induced musical comfort, until closer "Alive And Free" picks up the pulse rate with its Killers-esque bounce-along. A mixed bag, and perhaps a little guilty of style-over-substance in places.

Full-length offering of new worship tracks from the American mega-church.

New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO, is known for originating some of the biggest anthems being sung in the U.S. church, with songs like Overcome, Great I Am, I Am Free, Your Name, My Saviour Lives, and many many more. New Life Worship continues their 20+ year legacy by bringing you their brand new 10 song live worship experience - Strong God.

In this new project, Worship Pastors Brad Parsley and Jon Egan (Desperation Band) set out to raise up the next generation of New Life songwriters/worship leaders, while collaborating with well-seasoned writer's like Michael Farren, Jason Ingram, and Meredith Andrews. This resulted in Strong God; a heart- stirring live worship experience with fresh voices and Christ-centred songs that encourage the body of Christ to stand up and proclaim that God alone is strong!
