I was given this FULL album by the artist for the purpose of reviewing it, and giving away TWO copies. The opinions here are my own. -dErK
(Rating Scale 1 to 5 - 1 being least - 5 being greatest)
"Be Still My Soul" 4 - Very slow.. very calming.. as well encouraging to one that just needs the reassurance of the closeness of God.. the knowing that we are in need of Him.. and that He is there
"I Lift My Eyes" 4 - Looking to God for all things.. He alone is comfort, rest, and firm foundation
"Eucharistic Worship" 4 - Interesting song.. You do not hear very many songs about communion.. and as will this one is a bit more upbeat (quicker) than the rest.
"Hosanna" 4 - This is a beautiful version of this song.
"So Loved" 4 - Very worshipful
"Gloria" 5 - My favorite on the album.. as it picks up the pace quite a bit.. much more rocking.. which is more to my liking. The electric guitar additions are sweet!
"No Longer Live" 5 - My other favorite on the album... for the same reason as the one above, but I think that this one is my most favorite. Very clear Christ messages "Your love is all that my soul needs' "from every curse you ransom me" AWESOME messages!
