What You Need To Know
Freedom Movement, the Philadelphia-based church worship collective, releases their second album No Limits (Live), recorded live at Freedom's Church's 2018 Go Live Conference.
What It Sounds Like
Right from the start, No Limits (Live) feels like you've walked into a Sunday morning church service. The energy and community that is unique to a corporate worship experience permeates this album, and understandably so. Freedom Movement is the worship collective of Freedom Church in Philadelphia, PA and exists to capture the sound of worship and move of God in that local church and the city. Influenced by pop ("Wonder," "Glory Song"), contemporary ("You Are Good," "Awakened") and gospel sounds ("Narrow Gate," "At The Cross"), No Limits (Live) excels in musical diversity as much as it does in powerhouse lead vocals, stirring three-part harmonies, and sing-able lyrics. The album also features covers of worship repertoire staples "Mercy" by Bethel Music, "King of My Heart" by John Mark McMillan, "Build My Life" by Pat Barrett and "Spirit Break Out" by Jesus Culture.
Recurring themes on the album are surrender to God, devoting all of our lives to Him, and finding satisfaction in Him above anything else. From "Only You": You are my portion and I will wait for You / You are good to those who hope in You and we will see only You
Best Song On The Record
"Peace Be Still" wins for best song on the album. It contains one of the album's most powerful moments as the lead vocal sings out "You are the God of peace" and the lyric declares God's peace over our hearts and circumstances.
For Fans Of
Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Planetshakers, Israel & New Breed
No Limits (Live) is an album born out of God's people worshipping and pursuing Him together and because of that, it's an album that will facilitate God's people worshipping and pursuing Him together. Even in moments of personal worship, the lyrics will give voice to your prayers of faith, devotion, and surrender to God.
