They're back! Already! | Posted April 21, 2014
Fast on the heels of their previous album, Only King Forever, Elevation Worship is back with their latest offering, Raised To Life EP. The album consists of three music tracks and one video. In terms of songs, there are two versions of "Raised To Life"--one studio recorded and the other recorded live as a video offering.

Although "Raised To Life" was on the recently released album, the other two tracks offered are new. "Unstoppable God" is an uptempo praise anthem that was studio recorded and Jesus I Come is a brooding worship song recorded live.

Going into the EP I had only heard their previous album, Only King Forever, so having a follow-up EP so quickly that only had two new songs was disappointing. As powerful as a song that "Raised To Life is," I just don't feel I needed it two more times in my library. The EP was released specifically for the Easter season, and in this regard I understand the impact that the songs can have in relation to such a critical time in the Christian calendar.

Aside from the album, the main thing that I appreciate about Elevation Worship is the plethora of free resources they offer on their website. From lead sheets to chord charts to drum loops, everything a worship leader would require to introduce new songs to their congregation.

The EP itself may serve its purpose as a quick worship set for a small group or even for a time of personal praise and worship. The mixture of live and studio recordings is perplexing to me (with the exception of the video). In this reviewer's mind, worship albums should always be recorded live so that the listener can have an opportunity to share in the anointing that was on that particular evening. As a ministry, Elevation Worship gets full marks for their willingness to serve the global church in the offering of free resources so that the music can shared to a broader audience.
