Review: Songs 4 Worship Ultimate

Integrity Music
Released March 1, 2011

Integrity Music is celebrating the 10th anniversary of it’s ridiculously successful Songs 4 Worship series.  After selling over 10 million albums, they are dropping another release titled Ultimate. Rather than being a sampling of the past year’s most popular worship music, it’s a greatest hits or best of.

You’ve most likely heard these songs many, many times. If you don’t already own them, or your worship leader hasn’t overplayed them, or you’re just getting started with worship music, I’d pick this up.
I’ve personally reviewed a ton of these artists in the last year (Tomlin, McMillan, Brewster, ALM:uk, Kathryn Scott), and this is a good way to get a sample of what’s going in worship music (the same way that the WOW series does for radio friendly Christian music).

You’re going to get over 30 of the best worship sons. Stuff by Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Lincoln Brewster, Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Casting Crowns, Michael W. Smith, and even my personal favorite John Mark McMillan. Over 30 songs and a bonus DVD of music videos.

    Didn’t I say “no more Mighty To Save cover songs”? That’s strike one, Laura Story.
