OH HAPPY DAY! Yes, yes, yes!!!
For all of us Passion Heads who watched the limited stream of the wonderful God moving event of Passion ’07 and drooled over the 2 new Crowder tunes… our day has come!
Oh the Glory of it All – David Crowder*Band. AHHH! The hairs are up on the back of my neck, arms, etc. as I type this listening to just an incredible worship song. Typical Crowder yumminess with funky chord rhythm by the acoustic, trinkets of loops in the background, constant cymbals, violin sweetness, Driving Bass, CRAZY bridge that drops down sweetly with piano loop, CROWDER’S FUNKY VOCAL MELODIES, WONDERFUL LYRICS!…AND IT’S OVER THE FENCE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! YES CROWDER HAS HIT ANOTHER HOME-RUN!! AHHHH the crowd goes wild!
No lie, this should be an instant favorite for any DC*B fan out there. AND typically Crowder tunes can be somewhat wacky/difficult for the normal congregant to sing along to. I think this is an amazing song for whatever service you worship in: youth, adult, progressive, etc. I even listen to it for the pure enjoyment of a well written and played song!
Shine – Matt Redman. I love this song too. I don’t get all crazy with it but I do think it’s great! And this live version is better than the recorded version on Matt’s new studio release, Beautiful News! I mean that CD in itself is an amazing release! But this live version captures some of Matt’s ability to make live worship something contagious and worshipful. I feel ‘supernova’s light’ is a cheesy line but I can get past it because the ‘Living for Your glory’ theme is magnificent. I totally dig this tune.
AND you get a message from Uncle Louie! How great is that! For a price of $3.50 to get all of this, you’re actually ripping off iTunes and the Passion group! We are totally getting the better end of this deal! The whole thing works in this ‘glory of Jesus’ theme that is really special.
GO…NOW…don’t finish reading this post! I MEAN IT! GO buy it right now! iTunes is waiting!!! Why are you still reading this. You are wasting time.
When you get back from buying this let me know what you think about it!
