A Beautiful Exchange (Live At Hillsong Church, AU)
Australia's Hillsong Live has found that the key to bridging worship music and contemporary pop is great songwriting. Since the late ‘90s, the group has brought hundreds of songs to light. A Beautiful Exchange continues the tradition of Hillsong’s early albums: It’s recorded live (at the Sydney Entertainment Centre), capturing the band at its most inspired. Joined by a choir, the group's epic gestures and echoing, triumphant guitars are fully realized on this collection of contemporary Christian music. Highlights include the tender ballad “The One Who Saves,” the rousing pop-rocker “You,” and the atmospheric “Beautiful Exchange.” This version of the album includes five videos and a digital booklet featuring lyrics and prayers.
