Since Passion's 1997 launch, hundreds of thousands of college students have convened at their various worship conferences. Each year the weekend's musical portion, arguably the events' most potent outcome, is taped, producing a string of best-selling recordings and propelling perennial participants like Chris Tomlin into international notoriety. This latest edition again captures the kinetic "live" experience, excellently exampling the talents of each worship-oriented artist and introducing yet another set of soon-to-be church anthems. And though including commercial newcomers like FEE may pique marketing interests and question the recording's intent, if you're looking for just one record to complement your worship drive time, this is certainly it.
