“Our God Comes” by Antioch Live – CD Review

Buzz this

I recently had the opportunity to review a CD; that doesn’t happen very often! The CD is entitled OUR GOD COMES; it is a worship CD from the worship band, Antioch Live.

Here is the ‘synopsis’ of the CD and the band:

Antioch Live’s second all-original release, OUR GOD COMES, carries the heart
of the church and movement that is Antioch. Recorded live in Texas, the music is seasoned with flavors of progressive rock and pop with strains of fold. Specializing in anthems of the solid character of God (Wonderful Counselor, God and King, One Hundred Three, and the title track, Our God Comes) as well as vulnerable admissions of personal humanity (I Will Raise, How Much More and Savior Forever), Antioch Live delivers a breathtaking follow-up to their first all-original release, Forever Sound. Other songs of note are Come and God Who Saves.

Please check out this video featuring this wonderful worship band’s music; it also promotes the evening when this CD was recorded:

Here is some additional information of interest:

The worship music and lyrics on OUR GOD COMES expresses the heart cry, prayers and joy of the worship team, songwriters and musicians from Antioch, led by James Mark Gulley. From the opening strains of audience approval, joyous praise and worship floods the listeners’ ears and ageless unchanging truths find a new sound for today! The savvy musical arrangements and gifted song writing flow from Come to Our God Comes, and the glorious experience is documented from the choruses of Wonderful Counselor, How
Much More and Savior Forever.

My review:

I really enjoyed this CD – and so did my husband, who took it with him to listen to on his fairly long commute to and from work. I particularly liked ‘God Who Saves’ featuring Johanna Six. She has such a sweet voice! Overall, I was touched by all of the songs – and was pointed to my Savior in all of them – which is the purpose of a worthwhile worship CD, after all! The songs are rich and heartfelt; the passion of the performers is palatable! They come in all tempos – slow and contemplative, and upbeat and excited in worship! I heartily recommend this CD to all ages!
