You could feel in the air that history was about to be made as over 4000 passionate worshipers joined together to record the latest Hillsong United live worship album. As the lights came down, a giant 'UNITED' wall of light beamed out across the crowd. Video screens flashed images of people standing still as the world rushed around them... and the band began to play.
The message: United We Stand - a declaration of unshakeable faith in Christ.
Included with the CD is a BONUS DVD capturing all the highlights of the night, and also a documentary which will take you behind the scenes of Hillsong United. This is that DVD.

You really should buy the seventh live album United We Stand by Hillsong UNITED. These worshippers will make you praise with their songs. And you really need to listen to their music. Let's adore Him!
An Just OK Album| Posted May 14, 2009
United We Stand, is a largely Hillsong-by-the-numbers effort offering plenty in the way of familiarity. Everything one has come to expect from a United album is here - the live atmosphere, the big arrangements and a dogged insistence in rewriting the same worship song over and over.
One listen to United We Stand confirms it as a predictable successor to previous United efforts. The faster songs are catchy and energetic without managing to sound memorable. Lyrically, the band never ventures beyond the expected either. The usual worship clichés abound, as each song on United We Stand involves some variety of their typical "Live for You," "Tell the world about Jesus," and "Jesus, You are beautiful" lyrics.
Chronologically, the album sounds drawn out as well. United We Stand starts off briskly enough, with three energetic live numbers ("The Time Has Come," "Take It All," "From God Above") that prove why this band is a natural favorite among youth. It is not long however, until the album gets bogged down by momentum-robbing slow worship songs that seem unnecessarily placed together, and by the time it finally draws to a close, not even the enthusiastic "Revolution" can pick this album back up.
Hillsong United are not necessarily known for variety between albums and one could argue that their fans would prefer it any other way. There's nothing on United We Stand that we haven't already heard on Look To You or More Than Life. Nothing here is new, yet nothing is missing either. Those who know and love United will no doubt enjoy this, since their favorite worship band has once again delivered a familiar batch of songs that will please more than inspire.

I find it so ironic that the title of the album isn't even the title of any of the songs on this album. That just goes to show that this concept is worth meditating and it stands alone. Where 2 or 3 are gathered in His name, then He will be there! :)

This worship CD is one of the most powerful of its kind on the market. It literally takes you into God's presence. The DVD is excellent as well. You can forget that you are in your home and experience God. The songs off this records are heard in millions of churches every week. Where would our worship be without this album and the wonderful work of Joel Houston & Marty Sampson. Must have for any worship lover.

This concert really shows what music was meant to be used for. Every phrase and melody is Spirit inspired. You really get a sense of the Pentecostal approach to song writing.
