What You Need To Know
Australian worship collective Planetshakers releases their full-length album, Heaven On Earth, recorded live at their Planetshakers Kingdom Conference in Melborne, Australia.
What It Sounds Like
Planetshakers is no stranger to creating worship songs that are fun and powerful, and are unafraid to experiment musically. It's part of what makes their music so enjoyable to engage with, and all of those qualities make an appearance on Heaven On Earth. "There Is No One Like You," "Electric Atmosphere," and "Move Out of My Way" are high-energy praise anthems that are perfect to dance to, complete with all the slap bass, electric guitar riffs, drum breaks, and synth you could want. These would translate especially well into a kids or youth worship setting. "Through It All" and "Not Alone" provide powerful worship encounter moments that bring an awareness of God's presence, and declare the truth of who He is. Hearing the crowd engagement on this record truly brings the worship moments to life.
"Not Alone" in particular is a song that declares how God our Father always loves us, is always good, and always with us. The chorus sings I am not alone / You are here with me / You've given me Your heart and You will never leave / Father You're always good and You're always here for me / You'll never leave.
Best Song On The Record
"Above All Names" is hands down the best song on the record. There's something incredible about God's people collectively declaring that His name is exalted above every other name, and is more powerful than anything in this world or anything we are facing. I love that this is one of the longer songs on the album, giving you space to linger in truth and connect with Jesus.
For Fans Of
