Alive In South Africa reviews
Israel and New Breed came out with another good album. My favorite song on the album is "Not Forgotten [Radio Version]". That particular song has an interesting flavor, it taste like Africa and the Middle East with a dash of Carribean. This was the song that made me really want to get the album when I had downloaded the free editted version of the radio song. They even have a live version of that song on the album which is just as good and it comes with a charged up reprise.
My other favorite song on the album is "Turn it Around". Then my favorite worship song is "To Worship You I Live(Away)" that flows into a medley of songs on the next track. I also like Jonathan Butler's song "Come and Let Us Sing".
Then they have an encore of their hit songs from previous albums. This is a great album for exhortation, encouragement, and declaration.
I wish I was there at this recording, considering that South Africa had/has a division between race/color. New Breed is like a symbol of unity between the races in Jesus Christ which makes them the perfect American group to go to South Africa.
Another another level...
If you enjoyed "Live from Another Level" you will definitely enjoy this CD. "Not Forgotten," "No Limits," "Away," "Favor of the Lord" -- where could I begin? I nearly wore out Israel's previous releases "New Season" and "Another Level," but this may be the best yet. I'll have to listen a few more times before I decide.
In short, there are so many good tracks on this CD, that if you love gospel and worship music, or if you have liked any of Israel and New Breed's past work, this is a must buy.
A must have for Praise and Worship Collection
Alive in South Africa is by far the best gospel project to come out this year. It has everything you want to hear and feel from a Praise and Worship experience. I don't know if this project will top Live from Another Level, but it's very close race between the two projects. The entire project is AWESOME, but the two songs that jump directly into my spirit was No Limit(Slow Version)Enlarge my Territory and Not Forgetten/He Knows My Name.
May God continue to bless Israel and New Breed for their innovative ways of spreading his words through Music
