Top 10 Album Of 2009 | Posted January 04, 2010
Israel has always impressed me with various songs throughout the years ("Again I Say Rejoice," "Say So," "Friend Of God"), but I've never been captivated by an entire album of his. The Power Of One is his career defining album, containing incredibly anointed choruses of praise, and I haven't been able to put it down all year.

Stepping away from the live atmosphere of The New Breed, the group he has headlined since the early 90's, Israel's first solo album still feels like a collaborative, live event, featuring guest artists like Mary Mary, tobyMac, Martin Smith (Delirious?) and reggae vocal queen, Chevelle Franklyn, along with soaring vocal choral arrangements. The result is a very polished studio album that feels like a living, breathing live event.

The songs are still injected with Israel's gospel and reggae roots, giving this album massive amounts of soul than your average modern praise and worship release. As a result, you truly feel the emotions of these songs. It's more than vertical worship. Israel is an anointed songwriter and vocalist and it comes through clearly on every track.

Highlights for me are "Just Wanna Say," "Everywhere That I Go" and "Saved By Grace." There are two songs that stop me in my tracks every single time, and those are "Moving Forward" and "I Receive." If you don't purchase this album, buy these two tracks. They are some of the best moments of personal worship I've had all year long.

I didn't like this album at all, I think it's probably my least favorite of all of them. It was just...boring in my opinion. I'd get any of the other albums rather than this one.

good | Posted August 12, 2010
This is such a great album. I listened to it and it took a while to take it all in because the sound is different from Houghton's previous music. But it is really good music in the end. I love the heart of worship that Houghton has and I pray that he'll continue to make great music to GLORIFY God and bring others closer to GOD.

Top songs: Sing Redemption's Song. Moving Forward. I Receive. Surely Goodness.

AMEN (:

I haven't listened to every single song on this CD yet but the ones I've have heard are amazing. I really like Every Prayer, Just Wanna Say, and Power of One.

Just Wanna Say | Posted December 09, 2009
Well, I just want to say that I love the sound of this. Just wanna say is a great song about God being with us and therefore not having any reason to fear. It also is upbeat and mixes message with great music.

So Many Styles | Posted December 03, 2009
This album has so many styles and ranges on it that it can be listened to by almost anyone. It has great lyrics along with great backing instruments that make this album great. The fact that it is very diverse also helps this album get a great rating.
