Another Great God Focused Artist Lead Worship CD

"Newsboys join the worship trend with this CD. Unlike many others, however, 8 of the 10 songs are Newsboys originals and only two of those are live versions of songs they've previously released.The CD opens with "He Reigns," one of my two favorites from the disc. This song is a joyful proclamation of God's power and a bit of a reminder of how important it is for Christians to proclaim it.My other favorite is the final song "Hallelujah," a look ahead to the never ending praise session in Heaven.In between are more great songs like "Great is Your Faithfulness," (not the hymn, but just as good) "Take My Hands (Praises)," live songs "Lord (I Don't Know)" and "It is You," and the covers "You are my King (Amazing Love)" and "In Christ Alone."I'm not a big Newsboys fan, so I can't comment on the style of this CD in relation to their other releases, but I do know that it's gotten lots of play time since I bought it.As an added bonus, the guitar chords for 7 of the songs are included with the lyrics in the booklet. While it seems funny that they didn't include the chords next to the other three songs, I'm very happy to have those 7.I'm glad I took a chance and bought this CD. It will be pointing me to God for many years to come."
Great Collection of ORIGINAL Worship Songs

"With the exception of "You Are My King (Amazing Love)" and "In Christ Alone", all of these songs were written by the Newsboys lead singer Peter Furler and Steve Taylor. You know how well they can write from previous albums. It's nice to see producer/writer Steve Taylor back with the Newsboys.Before I cover the songs, let me say that the lyric sheet included with the album is cool because it lists all the guitar chords above the words of most of the songs. So get out your guitar and start playing (just don't break any copyright rules and play in church without proper permission).The band starts off with "He Reigns", a very catchy praise song that you have probably heard on the radio. Then it is followed by a powerful and soulful rendition of "You Are My King (Amazing Love)". "Great Is Your Faithfullness" is not the traditional hymn you might have thought it was, instead it's a kind of medley of a few songs put together in an entirely new form.You'll recognize "Take My Hands (Praises)" from the album Shine The Hits, but it's got new words and a different mix. Follow that with "Adoration" which would make a great Christmas praise song (there's not enough of those!). It's sung from the perspective of someone at the stable in Bethlehem. "In Christ Alone" is a melodic catchy hymn.Then they follow with live version of hits from the album Thrive "Lord (I Don't Know)" and "It Is You". "It Is You" was recorded live at the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame and is very good.Next is another new hymn... "Father, Blessed Father". Also a catchy tune which include the chorus from "Breathe" (album Take Me To Your Leader Now). It is very tastefully included. The album ends with "Hallelujah", a longful thought of what it'll be like when we're standing in heaven singing."
