CD Reviews

Rich Mullins and City on a Hill fans, this one is for YOU!

"First of all, this is just an awesome worship album! There is a live version of "God of Wonders" (first track from "City on a Hill" - see my review of that album) which was recorded at Texas A&M. Lots of the songs on this album have a "simple" feel to them. The words convey the glory of the Lord, without so much instrumentation that the lyrics are hard to find. A couple of songs (Laden with Guilt and I Boast No More)have lyrics written by Isaac Watts. Isaac Watts wrote such long-standing hits as "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross" and "O God Our Help in Ages Past" back in the early 1700's.Be sure to listen carefully to "Oh Lord Your Love". Caedmon's Call was one of the few CCM groups who received some of the unpublished work of the late Rich Mullins [....] So it's wonderful to hear a new Rich Mullins song, and Caedmon's Call did a great job with it! Here is the chorus of "Oh Lord Your Love":Oh Lord your love
Is new with every morning
Your faithfulness
It gets me through the night
You bid us come
You know that I am weary
Your yoke is easy
Your burden light.[....]"
An awesome worship experience

"With all the worship-oriented albums that have been hitting the shelves lately, it didn't take long for Caedmon's Call to cash in on the trend with their own worship album, In The Company of Angels. But what sets this album apart from other worship albums? Well, rather than recording a bunch of worship songs we've all heard a million times already (e.g. "Lord I Lift Your Name on High", "The Heart of Worship", etc....not that these are bad songs, mind you; they're just way overdone), Caedmon's Call brings us a collection of mostly original material, such as the bouncy single "Who You Are" and the uplifting "We Delight". There are also a few old hymns with updated music, such as "Thy Mercy" and the stirring "Laden With Guilt". Adding to the worshipful ambience is the inclusion of two live tracks, including the recent worship hit "God of Wonders" (this time without Third Day's Mac Powell). So what sets this album apart from other Caedmon's albums? Well, the fact that this is a worship album is obvious; these are songs directed straight to God, whereas Caedmon's is usually best known for lyrics on a more personal level. You won't find any of the Aaron Tate- or Derek Webb-penned songs which made up the bulk of their previous albums, but the lyrics are just as poetic and thought provoking as ever. (There is even a song called "Oh Lord Your Love" which is partially written by the late, great Rich Mullins.) Musically, Caedmon's has really gone back to their folk roots, backing away from the more produced sound of their last album, Long Line of Leavers. One of the most stunning songs on this album is the closing track, "The Danse", which features Caedmon's signature vocal harmonies as well as a Celtic-flavored folk sound. Altogether, In The Company Of Angels is truly a unique worship experience, and no fan of Caedmon's Call or praise-and-worship music should be without this CD."
