The Bottom Line

If you are a Hillsong fan, this release will be exactly what you are looking for. If you are a fan of intimate worship music, you will be right at home with A Beautiful Exchange. However, if you're a rocker who believes if it's too loud, you're too old, then this probably isn't your cup of tea. But, if you fall somewhere in the middle like I do, then definitely give A Beautiful Exchange a listen. It's as soft as it is powerful and it will help put you in a worship state of mind.

Guide Review - Hillsong LIVE - 'A Beautiful Exchange'

Hillsong LIVE'S 19th recording, A Beautiful Exchange, is, in a word, beautiful. Warm and intimate, somehow worship leaders Brooke Liegertwood, Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston, Darlene Zschech, Jad Gillies and Ben Fielding manage to make you feel like it's just you and God rather than you, God and about 25,000 other believers from Sydney and London.

Based around the theme of the beautiful exchange that took place when Jesus went to the cross for our sins, each song flows beautifully into the next. From the gentle "The One Who Saves," an invitation to meet our Savior to the powerful and intimate 'Like Incense/Sometimes By Step," there is a feeling of absolute worship that comes through every single note.

If you want to step into the familiar comfort of pure worship, then pop A Beautiful Exchange into your CD player. Just be prepared ... this isn't a "background" CD that will allow you to continue doing your thing with some cool tunes to listen to. A Beautiful Exchange will suck you in and deliver you to the feet of your Savior - and your day will be all the better for it.
