100 [edit]
by Elim Sound | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: May 05, 2015
 

‘Honouring the past, embracing the future’

This landmark centenary project draws upon our rich heritage with much loved Elim Hymns and choruses of the past and looks forward with nine inspirational brand new songs.

Produced by Ian Yates and Trevor Michael, The 15 track album was recorded in Eastbourne UK, featuring 10 Elim worship leaders from across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

The Looking back songs include a modern folk style rendition of ‘Power In the blood’, and beautiful arrangements of ‘Breathe On Me’ and ‘Have Thine Own Way’ that will serve as a powerful tool for personal devotions.

The new songs contain the anthemic ‘Best Is yet to come’, the powerful ‘No Longer I’ co-written with Matt Redman, the vulnerable ‘Lay It At Your Feet’ and a rousing cover of Jared Anderson's ‘The Great I AM’

A Centennial Celebration | Posted April 30, 2015
Elim Pentecostal Church, a UK-based denomination, is turning century-old in 2015. With this milestone in mind, 10 worship leaders from across the UK have collaborated together to record a collective worship project, 100. The resulting project is a diverse mixture of newly penned songs and reimagined hymns.
 
The collaboration among these worship leaders is something to be commended to be sure. It is great to hear such a large group of believers passionate for worship coming together to lead listeners in worship of our God.
 
Several hymns are given beautiful treatments on this album. "Have Thine Own Way" features Fiona Crow in a powerful moment of surrender aided by an ambient arrangement as she sings, "You're the potter, I'm the clay, have thine own way." On the other end of the spectrum, "Power in the Blood" is given a Brit-folk makeover as many of the leaders come together to create an upbeat foot-stomper. "Breathe On Me" as well is a highlight with its thick clap tracks and tight production as Suzanne Hanna sings of God's penetrating and renewing power.
 
"No Longer I" (co-written with Matt Redman) is a definite highlight among the new tunes. Ian Yates leads this powerful song reminiscent of Passion's "My Heart Is Yours" in that it quotes a hymn and breathes new life into it. The song starts with an acoustic rendition of elements from "At The Cross" before it crescendoes into a bridge that declares: "It is no longer I, it is Christ who lives in me."
 
Closing Thoughts:
Elim Sound's 100 is a faithful shout of praise for the blessings God has poured out on the Elim church over the last century. There are many great tracks on this album that will encourage and equip the Church and the listeners. With that being said, listeners can't help but feel wanting when it comes to musical innovation. Most of the album is comparable to Hillsong or other church groups and many of the lyrical themes are familiar and have been previously visited by more than a few songwriters. However, 100 is a good listen and will lead listeners into a time of meditation and worship of our God.
