Great Release, Top 10 Best Live Christian!| Posted August 27, 2007
If you can only pick up one Chris Tomlin release, you must get "Arriving". However, in my opinion his next best release is this live album.
The live versions of some of the songs like "Indescribable", "Unchanging", "Forever" and the medley of "How Great Is Our God" combined with "How Great Thou Art" make this one of the top 10 best live Christian albums!
Chris Tomlin's Best Album| Posted August 07, 2007
This is Chris Tomlin's best album, but that's not saying much since the others were mostly hit or miss. It's interesting because Tomlin actually toys with the arrangement of the songs, changing them from their album version quite a bit. "Indescribable" one of the top classics in CCM history, starts off as a very slow well done, but then quickly speeds up. I personally like the slower version better. But the crowd is great anyways, since every Christian in America has heard the song. "Forever" quite improves on the album version, and gives a great live performance. "On Our Side" is another great highlight.
"How Great Is Our God" is possibly the most improved song live, over album, in history. The album version was only OK, but this makes it from bland, to powerful. From skipable, to worship service lineup in church. And again the crowd really makes the song. When the crowd sings back a song with all it's might, it's an instant classic, and a great moment for the listener, and the artist.
However, the album is quite short, 8 songs in all. Could more have been added? Most definitely, if he couldn't record anymore, grab some Passion recordings. The Passion version of "Famous One" is a lot better than this version. So, I would have liked to seen Passion version, but this is good. Chris Tomlin is going in some Hall of Fame somewhere, and for good reason. He still could be better, but he's made his mark, and few artists to that. So give him his props, he deserves it.
Great live album| Posted August 26, 2009
This is a wonderful live album by Chris. He is one of the greatest live performers and this cd sounds awesome. It just has a great sound to it and it will have you singing along in no time. I only wish it had more songs on it.
