What You Need to Know:
When you ask most people at church about Australian Worship Music, their first reaction will be Hillsong, or maybe the brothers Smallbone of for KING & COUNTRY. However, if you want all of the depth of worship of Hillsong but with the stage presence of fK&C, you have to look no further than Planetshakers. This latest release, Heaven on Earth - Part One (Live In Asia), delivers on both the fronts of powerful worship and high energy praise. Probably best known for "The Anthem," which released in 2008, Planetshakers delivers a succinct little package with this 4 song EP.
What it Sounds Like:
Heaven on Earth is classic Planetshakers. The EP contains 2 high energy worship tracks which will have you dancing, and 2 worshipful tracks which will leave you on your knees before a mighty God. The theme is consistent throughout the 4 songs, which makes it an excellent worship set for a home group or even a time of personal worship. At 24 minutes in length, it is easily digestible on a morning commute or, with the high energy tracks, a fast 5k run.
The constant theme throughout is the faithfulness of God and His promise to never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6). High praise is reserved for "The Greatest." This song is pure praise and worship and all about lifting up the name of Jesus. The comfort of God is the core theme of "Not Alone."
Best Song on the Record:
"The Greatest" is just a great song to jam out to. Turn it up loud, gather the entire family together and have a worship dance party. Even have a contest to see who shouts "you're the greatest!" the loudest.
For Fans Of:
Hillsong Worship, Passion, Mosaic MSC
Heaven On Earth is a refreshing worship album that is full of power and praise. I am looking forward to part two.
Listen on Spotify and iTunes.
