Mercyme - The Worship Sessions
(Provident Integrity Europe)
I am always a bit wary when it comes to contemporary Christian music bands recording worship albums, as people tend to expect ‘performance’ rather than worship. But this, the second of Mercyme's albums I’ve reviewed, is impressive. It comes across as worship and not performance-based at all.
The album is a collection of well known favourites such as Hungry, Hosanna, Mighty To Save and In Christ Alone as well as the 80s retro sounding Hearts Sing Louder which makes the album worth listening to just for that.
The album also includes a reworking of the 18th century hymn Come Thou Fount which has also been covered by the David Crowder Band and Jars of Clay. You can clearly hear that this album is Mercyme, but the fact that this is a worship album clearly comes through.
