Nothing Is Impossible [edit]
by Planetshakers | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: August 09, 2011
 

Nothing Is Impossible is the long awaited studio album release from Australian praise and worship band Planetshakers.

This album, the first to come out of the studio in over 5 years, encapsulates the passion and energy that they produce live as well as highlighting the cutting edge values of producer Joth Hunt, and featuring the world class rhythm section of Mike Webber (drums) and Mark Peric (bass). The vocal sounds are as diverse as they are genuine and the title track, ‘Nothing Is Impossible’, features the dynamic vocals of Grammy Award winning artist, Israel Houghton.

This album will take you on a journey from the raw energy of ‘Bring It On’ to the deeply moving words of ‘No One Like You’, and the powerful declaration of ‘You Are God’.

Available as a digital release now and then releasing with a bonus DVD at retail in August.

Honest, Cutting-Edge and Catchy | Posted August 15, 2011
Planetshakers is a unique Australian praise and worship band. They have been going strong since 2000 and are now based out of Planetshakers City Church in Melbourne, Australia. They have released several albums, but this is their first on the Integrity recording label.
 
Nothing  is Impossible is a solid album, musically and lyrically. The message is very encouraging and the whole band is talented. It has the same kind of feel and vibe as the Hillsong albums, but with some key differentiations. It is impossible to sit still through the whole CD; a lot of the songs make you want to get up and dance. I like the switching between male and female lead vocals and fast and slow tempos; it keeps things fresh.
 
The album starts off with “Power,” an upbeat song about the life-changing power of God. It reminds us that having the power of God in us is something that should be very exciting, though we often forget. 
 
It moves on to “Bring It On,” which espouses praise about God relentlessly pouring out His love and favor, though we are undeserving. This song has strong guitar riffs throughout. It is easy to catch on to because there is a lot of repetition.
 
“Give It Up” prods us to give up our life to the Lord so that we can truly live. The chorus says “Give it up to the One who saved You / Give it up to the One who gave You life / Give it up to the One who made You / Give it up to the Lover of Your Soul.” This song has an electric sound with a catchy beat. The vocals are also strong.
 
The title track, “Nothing Is Impossible,” is based on Philippians 4:13. It is a great reminder song that we really can do all things through God’s strength.
 
“Running To You” is a downtempo ballad that layers guitar upon a soothing piano base. Piano also is featured on the next song, "You Are God,” which contains the best vocals of the entire album. The song basically talks about all the attributes of God that makes Him God. It is a great song of adoration. “No One Like You” also lauds the attiributes and unique character of God.
 
“Favoured” is about the blessing we receive because of Jesus’ sacrifice. With impressive female vocals, the chorus tenderly resounds: “I am favoured I am blessed / By the cross, and the blood that was shed / I am favoured I am blessed / I can do all things, because of what Youʼve done for me.” 
 
The pace picks back up on “Sound Of Praise,” a song that seamlessly marries the vocals and high-powered instruments. One of the more memorable moments of energy on the album is a breakdown in the middle of the song that really takes things to the next level. We’re encouraged to “Get up off your feet” in the next song, “Song of Victory,” keeping the power pumping.
 
“Hosanna” is a sincere and the instrumentation is beautiful. My favorite part of this song is the bridge: “We cry hosanna, hosanna/ Your Name be lifted up/ Forever hosanna, hosanna/ So high and lifted up.”
 
“Just run into His arms / No matter what you’ve done/ Just look into His eyes / And see the loving grace of God,” invites the pre-chorus of the tear-inducing “Come to Jesus.” There's a great dynamic build throughout the song, bringing the band in mid-way at a climactic moment. 
 
“We Cry Out” has a live feel to it with crowd vocals. It is a very motivating song and a cry out for revival throughout the lands. I really love the spoken part at the end that names several countries.
 
Closing Thoughts:
If you're looking for an honest, cutting edge worship album with soaring vocals, catchy lyrics, grinding guitar riffs and memorable moments, check out Nothing is Impossible. Although there's plenty of variety throughout the album, what's consistent is the passion, the authenticity, and the quality musicianship. The best tracks of the album are “You Are God” and “Come to Jesus.”

Nothing Is Impossible | Posted July 08, 2011
As a big fan of Planetshakers, I was really excited to see that they had a new album released. As always, the musicianship on this release seems to be top notch with well written and performed songs of worship. This is a release I will be picking up soon.

Great! | Posted July 13, 2011
I just recently discovered Planetshakers, maybe a couple of months ago. I love that they're like Hillsong... but they have stronger beats and newer melodies. I never really liked bass guitar until I heard their songs, honestly! The album sounds amazing, just like their other albums have been. If you like this CD, then you should also like their One CD. It's pretty good too. Definitely thumbs up for Nothing is Impossible!

Blown Away! | Posted July 26, 2011
I had never heard of Planetshakers prior to them being featured as an artists of the month here on NRT, but they are deffinetely one of my new favorites. This is the first album of theirs I've heard, and I was TOTALLY knocked off my feet by it. The mix of worship lyrics, plus some pop-y rock-y beats, are totally my thing. I loved it! A few of my favorite tracks were "Power", "You Are God", and "Song of Victory", but my favorite was the last track on the record, "We Cry Out". Totally brought me to tears. Such a powerful message! Same goes for all the songs on this record, though. All wonderfully written. Can't wait to hear more from Planetshakers!

Good. | Posted July 22, 2011
The lyrics of the Planet Shakers are good but i don' t really like how they have so much bass and drums in their music. I prefer more calm songs. But that's just my personal preference, other than that these guys are great!

God uses them... | Posted July 21, 2011
Any group that is able to move a crowd, is worth listening to.  And by watching the video that they had under their description, I could tell by the tears and smiling faces in the crowd that these guys have a gift given to them by God. 

God uses people like Planet Shakers to move people to do great things!

This group has great music that is good for contemporary likings (like for church service) and live concerts.

All in all, they sounded pretty good!

Sweet! | Posted July 13, 2011
Vocal and insturmental textures from a vast pallet of experience!  The title track is an incredibly moving song.  Themes of love and adoration to our Lord and Savior, Jesus blend with anthemic rock to form a great canvas of musical totality.  Great album.  Keep up the good work!

Planetshakers - Nothing is Impossible | Posted July 12, 2011
Sorry, but none of the songs really jumped out at me.  The band's previous work seems to be more powerfull.  I do hope someone enjoys some of the songs on this new album.  I wish them luck in the future.  Keep on praising our King all across this planet.

Loved it - bought it! | Posted July 12, 2011
Didn't even finish listening to the whole album before deciding to buy it!
This is the first I've heard of Planetshakers (shocking I know!) and the first album of theirs that I've bought, but this inspired me to buy a further 3 albums of theirs.
As well as enjoying the upbeat melodies I enjoyed their upfront lyrics which are normally reserved for more "praisy" type artists. So it's great having these types of lyrics with more pop/rock music.
Great - buy it now!

Another incredible album from Planetshakers | Posted July 11, 2011
I am a huge Planetshakers fan who has almost all their many albums and has attended their conference numerous times. Also being a patriotic Aussie I love it when the rest of the world finds out about the amazing music we have in Australia and New Zealand.

Anyway the disclaimer aside, this album is very good, it came out in Australia in April and it has been constantly played on my MP3 player from the minute I brought it. The praise songs are inflectious (you can't help but sing and dance to them) and the worship songs really take you into the presence of God.

I really like the songs Bring It On and We Cry Out as well as one of the highlights from their last album "Nothing Is Impossible" with the added vocal support of Israel Houghton.

If you can get the physical album I would highly recommend it as you get a supporting DVD with live versions of some of the songs, short preaching segments from the conference (Russel and Sam Evans, Rich Wilkerson Jr, TJ Jakes, John Bevere and Reggie Dabbs) as well as conference opening videos and other great songs.

In particular the opening song of the DVD is very touching with a young girl leading "Nothing But The Blood" before being supported by the Planetshakers band and dancers.

Overall this is a very good album and well worth the $21 Aussie dollars I paid for it.
