Im sorry. Im a big time Vineyard fan. In fact I have every Fathers Heart (the full albums, not the compilations) and Winds of Worship there is on CD. This album is so bad that it has been collecting dust in my CD rack for months. The only songs I ever blow the dust off to listen to are Brents and Andys.
I guess it seemed just a little strange to me that around the time that music from Hillsong was in its hype, Vineyard Music Group happened to release this album, from Australia with a dominant female worship leader. A coincidence? I dont think so.
VMG does not need to compete with the market of music coming out of Australia. Im sure there were a few people suckered into purchasing this album, thinking that it was from Hillsong. If that is what VMG wanted to accomplish then well done. But Im not looking forward to future albums from Australia unless Rae-Hellen stays in the background. No offense, but Rae-Hellens voice and worship leading does not come close to Darlene Zschechs of Hillsong.
It was a mistake to give a new comer 7 of 10 songs on a popular series like Winds of Worship, while two veterans split 3 songs between them. When I bought the album I thought I would be hearing two of my favorite worship leaders, Andy and Brent. They were both listed before Rae-Hellen. But instead I got 2 songs with Brent (Exalt the Lord would be great without the didjeridu! AHHH!) and one song with Andy. Rae-Hellen dominated the recording which proves my point that VMG was trying to put out something of their own to compete with Hillsong.
If you do not collect the Winds of Worship series, skip this one. Not only are the majority of the songs bad, but the sound of the recording is sub-par.
