Hillsong United’s EMPIRES Album Review & Giveaway

hillsong3

Praise and prayer  in the form of music and song has always been one of my favorite ways to worship God. In listening, the lyrics, melody, and instrumentals steals my focus from the day to day and sets my eyes fully on God. It’s amazing how worship in this form always tends to fade everything else away. One of my favorite praise and worship music groups is most certainly Hillsong. I’ve been listening to Hillsong praise and worship since my teen years. I feel their music has the ability to connect with everyone seeking God to the fullest.

My how this new album doesn’t disappoint. The songs are filled with the heartfelt cry of needing a savior and the realization that we are nothing without Him. The lyrics rich in the worship or praising His Holy name. The instrumentals are soothing to the soul. This is a powerful collection.  I don’t really have a favorite track because each are done so well.  I will point out that this album doesn’t have upbeat fast paced tracks like some of the other albums by Hillsong but that doesn’t take away from the quality. It’s good to keep in mind if your are seeking something different. The tracks here are slower but still have great impact.  I count it a blessing to own this album and highly recommend it!
