Singalong-a- Wickham

.



Phil Wickham has recorded a new live album and is releasing it as a download only album - FOR FREE! It’s a pretty stripped down affair, just Phil, a guitar and a few thousand of his close personal friends.

It’s got some really nice songs on, especially if you like the more intimate kind of worship. It just about manages not to stray into ‘God is my girlfriend’ territory – it’s more like a ‘Divine Bromance’.

Stand out tracks are Beautiful, Desire, Cannons, Because of Your love.

The arrangements are a little bland (after all, what can you do with just one guitar?) but that’s not such a minus - it just makes me want to check out the 'official' releases all the more (and I guess that was the idea).

(BTW. Listen out for the fantastic example of post-modern responsorial call to worship that opens the album. This type of thing that has become quite popular...)

CONGREGATION: Wooooooooooooooooooo!
