Since launching its Spring Hill Worship division, Spring Hill Music has had a field day releasing vertically-themed albums aimed at introducing new songs for the church.
The title may give the impression that the songs follow a specific theme, but they aren't really centered on any particular topic. Instead, it's a compilation of standard expressions of praise and worship, done in a style that doesn't necessarily lend itself to be replicated at church. "Revival," for example, is a thunderous call for spiritual revolution, but Charity Von's expansive range is out of the question for most people. This performance-based attitude immediately robs
Another reason to nitpick is the implementation. While the title track and "Still" function marvelously as intimate songs of reflection, everything else sounds like it was taken from a '90s CCM time capsule. I heard traces of early 4Him or Phillips, Craig & Dean ("Our God Is Still Alive"), Steven Curtis Chapman ("Worshiper of You," "Don't Let Me Miss the Mountains"), Susan Ashton ("All My Times"), and even Wayne Watson ("Glorify Your Name") throughout the project.
Wait a second … that was Wayne Watson in "Glorify Your Name," further accentuating my point that this works an AC-friendly blast from the past, but as a worship album, it falls short.
