Kutless has been a staple in my music library for years. I was excited to have the opportunity to review this CD. As I began listening, memories of leading these songs in my college worship band flooded my mind.
This CD is a culmination of great worship songs. Each song brings a flavor that Kutless has been known for. These are familiar contemporary worship songs, however Kutless always puts a spin on them. This CD is perfect for either a worship leader or just someone who likes a rock-style worship song.
There are three songs that I absolutely love on this album. The first is Strong Tower. It is a powerful song reminding us that in times of struggle that God is our strong tower, our firm foundation in which we should all be rooted. I got to know this song well in college and it became almost an anthem for me. Cornerstone is about how Christ alone is our cornerstone, those who are weak are made strong in Him and Him alone. Kutless does a great job of bringing this worship song to life on this album. Finally, Great Are You Lord, such a wonderful worship song that has a great message.
Kutless will always be one of those bands that I keep in my music rotation because of the way they strive to bring the lyrics of their songs to life. This CD is amazing, and if you are a fan of contemporary worship music, I would recommend this CD.
