I have recently had the privilege to listen to the new Hillsong United Empires CD. On this album you’ll find over an hour’s worth of music in 12 songs. I really love some of Hillsong’s past songs, so I was excited to listen to Empires. If you aren’t familiar with Hillsong, they sing Christian worship music.
About Hillsong United:
UNITED is committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique sound, connect with churches, individuals and ultimately connect people everywhere with God. UNITED serve in church as a part of the wider Hillsong Worship and Creative team when they are home. When on tour, they are accompanied by the whole Hillsong team’s support and prayers that their ministry would arrest hearts and point people to Jesus, impacting individuals, local youth groups and local churches.
I didn’t like this album as much as I expected I would. It just didn’t “wow” me. I’m sure it will appeal to a lot of people, though, because it is well-written and well-performed. There are 12 songs, some sung by a man and others by a woman. The music is calming, almost ethereal at times. My son said it sounded “symphonic.” Many of the songs have repeating motifs that remind me of Philip Glass. There were two songs I liked more than the others: “Rule” and “Captain.” I think this album will especially appeal to the older generations.
