BREAKING THE GLASS CEILING OF WORSHIP MUSIC
This album stands on its own without overdubbed crowd noises camouflaging about as the anointing and all the digitally enhanced spiritual effects that contribute to the pop worship culture's glass ceiling. There is substance to these songs and style to the sounds. Gone are the days where music lovers have to tolerate dumbed down arrangements in order to be inspired by truths sung by a predominately white led worship leader from an upper middle class church. Gone are the days of urban repetition and predictability in the gospel worship genre. This album breaks new ground and speaks to the polarized genres of modern worship, saying, "come together and enjoy the wonderfully unlimited dimensions of God's splendor." Each song passionately proclaims the posture of God toward His loving creation. This is a great worship record, period. The measuring stick is not how accessible the songs are or if your worship team can play them. It's not whether or not your pastor puts his stamp of approval on it or how often the Christian radio machine dares to play such a hybrid, multi-cultural sound to their narrow listener base. This is a great worship record because it glorifies God, testifies about His great grace and promotes the Father's interests. Thank you, Israel, for continuing to soar past the glass ceilings the church and contemporary Christian music have constructed in defining and marketing worship.
Breaking the Traditional Expectations of Worship Music
While I still believe that "Live from Another Level" is Israel & New Breed's best live album (better yet, best live worship album ever), Israel & New Breed continue to push the limits of what mainstream 'Church Culture' labels as 'OK' for Worship Music. They're constantly bringing new music filled with insane rhythmic, musical, and vocal arrangements. Israel & New Breed is a must-have if you're into worship. They'll push your playlist past the realms of "Contemporary Christian Music" into a whole new dimension.
Incredible! Israel has done it again but taken it to another level. Such amazing high octane worship songs!
