The product of C3 Church in San Diego, C3 Live is a dynamic worship team with a heart to touch others for Christ. Their goal is "to create a meeting place where heaven and earth collide and people walk away changed." This shines through in their first full-length album Love So Wild.
Love So Wild utilizes a handful of synthesized instruments, giving it a modern vibe paired with the same classic praise music sound of Jesus Culture or Hillsong. Throughout the record, we hear themes of surrender, peace and the transforming power of God's relentless love and grace--all drenched in praise and worship.
Most of the songs on the album are five to six minutes long, longer than an average pop song, but fairly normal for the worship genre. The choruses are repeated many times throughout some of the songs, making them easy to pick up and sing along with. You can feel yourself falling into a state of worship with the praise team, allowing distractions to melt away and just focusing on praising Jesus.
The album contains a mix of upbeat songs, such as "Suns," "Power of the Cross" and "Alive in Me," balanced with slower, reflective tracks like "Bring Me Back to Life," "Safe Within Your Name" and "Matchless." The album ends on an upbeat note with "Sweet Surrender," a poppy, electric track that even contains a rap solo.
The Bottom Line: The band shares on their website's about page: "From day one the mission of C3 Live has always been to create an environment where people can experience the life transforming presence and power of God in praise and worship." Thanks to their new album Love So Wild, this San Diego church is able to fulfill that mission as listeners can join in the praise from anywhere in the world.
