So how does Chris Tomlin follow up his 2006 Artist and Male Vocalist of the Year Dove Awards? Easy... he goes out and releases his best work to date with See the Morning, a superb collection of worship-flavored tracks that demonstrate Tomlin continues refining his art. As with the previous Arriving, producer Ed Cash is firmly at the helm and masterfully blending Tomlin's smooth vocals and his band's chiming guitars and rock-steady rhythm. The extensive road work that Tomlin and his band have done certainly shows in how tight See the Morning sounds. In fact, tracks like "Glorious" and "Awesome Is the Lord Most High" may even lose a little luster compared with how they sound live on Passion: Everything Glorious. No matter, as this release is much more about songwriting than it is about energy. For Tomlin, verse and chorus have never flowed smoother and sweeter than on "Glory in the Highest" and "How Can I Keep from Singing?" and first single "Made to Worship." Tomlin also offers a nice cover of Brenton Brown's "Everlasting God," slightly slower than Lincoln Brewster's fiery version on Let the Praises Ring but equally rewarding. Further highlights include the atmospheric "Uncreated One" and a new and pleasing twist on the classic "Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)." Start to finish, See the Morning is Tomlin's most complete release and a strong argument for calling him one of this generation's finest songwriters in the modern church. --Michael Lyttle

Awesome. Great for worship. Love it. It's great if you just need to shake yourself out of a worldly mood and put yourself into a place where you can worship God with abandon and dedication.
Another amazing worship experience....

"I hate to admit it, but sometimes I pick up a new Contemporary Christian CD and I just enjoy it. Sure, it's probably a better choice than mainstream radio, but I find myself guilty of not always allowing the song to be used to praise God, sometimes I takw the music too lightly. However, that has been imposible to do with any of Chris Tomlin's albums. It would be easy too, Chris has one of the greatest voices in music today, but there's something that can't be heard with these songs, something I suspect has everything to do with the heart of the worship leader that brings the listener into a closer place with God. The morning i purchased this CD I had a bit of a drive ahead of me, I poped it in my car CD player, by the time I got to the fourth song (Glory In The Highest) I had to pull over and just enter prayer with God... Buy this album and let it lead you closer to God.
Regarding the songs, not much to say all excellent choices. Three tracks are already in the rotation with many worship bands, you may reconize: "Everlasting God" (awesome Brenton Brown song), the uptempo "Awesome Is The Load Most High", one of Chris's contributions to the lastest Passion Worship Band album and Glorious.
The only way to judge a worship album is how well it leads you in your private worship. Chris's music is a big part of my private and corporate worship, five stars just aren't enough."
Best Worship Album in a LONG time... from ANYBODY!

"I am a worship arts pastor in Pennsylvania. Normally, on an album like this. I am able to find 3 or 4 songs that I really like or really think would work well in our worship services. On this album, for the first time, I am having a very hard time finding even one or two that WOULDN'T work well in our services.
Chris is a very gifted songwriter, the band it tight, the sound is great. Whether just listening, using for your own private worship, or using as a resource for a church... It's a SERIOUS winner!"
