Review and Giveaway: "I Love Your Presence" Worship CD

One of the fun things about doing product reviews is when I get to hear new music. I love listening to Christian music -- the radio in my van is usually tuned to our Christian station, the CD changer is usually full of Christian CDs, and my iPod plays Christian music when I run. The new I Love Your Presence album by Vineyard music is a great new addition to my collection.

About the CD:
I Love Your Presence was recorded live at the Burn Bright: Worship and The Kingdom Of God conference, hosted by Vineyard Worship. Several hundred worship leaders and worshippers gathered in the Arizona desert to explore the nature of God’s kingdom through music and teaching with some of the Vineyard’s most gifted communicators and musicians. This inspiring collection of songs recorded live at the The Vineyard Church North Phoenix will immerse listeners in the powerful worship that was the highlight of the event.

What we thought:
I was a bit surprised when I first heard this album because it didn't exactly fit my preconceived notion of a worship album. The majority of the songs were more upbeat and had more of a rock-feel than I what I expected. My husband, one of the music experts in my family, compares their style to that of Casting Crowns.

Earlier today I managed to steal the CD out of my husband's car, and I found myself singing along as I drove home from an appointment. (For those that want to know, it was the line in "One Thing Remains" that goes "Your love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me.) I have a feeling that this album will earn a permanent spot in the rotation of CDs in my van and some of the songs will end up on the playlist I set up for times when I need an extra boost of encouragement.

More information:
I Love Your Presence was released on iTunes on January 10th and will be released as a physical CD on February 7th. Please visit Vineyard music at their website, on Facebook, or on Twitter.

  1. Favorite? Favorite? Well, I was driving down the road the other day, alone because I can actually do that now, blasting out a certain song some amazing friend sent me on iTunes... and singing along at top volume.

    But I'm pretty sure you already know about THAT artist.

    My other favorite is Tyler Andrews. His older stuff is primarily instrumental. His newer stuff, he tends to sing too. Amazingly talented pianist...

  2. My favorite is usually whichever one I'm listening to at the moment. Right now, I'm listening to a CD of Elvis' Gospel music. It's definitely *a* favorite. I'd like to win this so I can have some more favorites. :)

    Thank you for the review and giveaway chance.

  3. I love Casting Crowns, Third really have no 'favorites'. But we would really like to hear more good Christian music so I would love to win this :)

  4. My favorite vocalist is Steve Darmody. I could listen to his rich voice all day and all night!!
