Top 10 Album Of 2009
Posted January 04, 2010
By KevinMcNeese_NRT, Staff Reviewer


Israel has always impressed me with various songs throughout the years ("Again I Say Rejoice," "Say So," "Friend Of God"), but I've never been captivated by an entire album of his. The Power Of One is his career defining album, containing incredibly anointed choruses of praise, and I haven't been able to put it down all year.

Stepping away from the live atmosphere of The New Breed, the group he has headlined since the early 90's, Israel's first solo album still feels like a collaborative, live event, featuring guest artists like Mary Mary, tobyMac, Martin Smith (Delirious?) and reggae vocal queen, Chevelle Franklyn, along with soaring vocal choral arrangements. The result is a very polished studio album that feels like a living, breathing live event.

The songs are still injected with Israel's gospel and reggae roots, giving this album massive amounts of soul than your average modern praise and worship release. As a result, you truly feel the emotions of these songs. It's more than vertical worship. Israel is an anointed songwriter and vocalist and it comes through clearly on every track.

Highlights for me are "Just Wanna Say," "Everywhere That I Go" and "Saved By Grace." There are two songs that stop me in my tracks every single time, and those are "Moving Forward" and "I Receive." If you don't purchase this album, buy these two tracks. They are some of the best moments of personal worship I've had all year long.
