Review: Worship Central – Stir A Passion [Live]

todayNovember 15, 2022 3

Background
share close

Standout tune ‘Majesty (O the mystery)’ highlights how the collective has been influenced by current pop music. Its guitar lines add a slightly different tonality as (unusually for worship music) they’ve more in common with The 1975 than U2.

There isn’t a huge amount of melodic variation with the chord progressions, and likewise, the lyrics are generally quite safe. But you can hear the influence of Hillsong United’s songwriters in the increased use of poetic language, which should be welcomed.

This album will draw you into worship, and we should expect worship teams all over the world to be singing and leading services with the title track. It’s a simple song of devotion, but it has a wonderful ferocity and it does what it says on the tin: stirs a passion.

Worship Central has written many of the songs that the British Church holds dear. With future releases, it would be great to see them diversify and include the influence of the many nations that call Britain home.

Traffic on the M6

I remember a few years ago my wife and I were making a really long trip back from seeing relatives. After about 3 quarters through what was a really good and hassle free drive, I, in my ultimate wisdom, decided to put the ‘kiss of death’ on it.
