Planetshakers - Endless Praise [Review]

By Glenn Stout on March 07, 2014

Dove Award-nominated Planetshakers Band's newest release Endless Praise is set for release on March 11. This is the 26th live album recorded by the band that remains based out of Planetshakers Church, a multi-campus, 10,000-member congregation in Melbourne, Australia. Pastored by husband and wife, Russell and Sam Evans, Planetshakers Church is one of the fastest growing churches down under and the catalyst for a worldwide movement. The band is passionate about uniting generations worldwide through worship. They seek to see people encounter God, be transformed by His presence, and empowered to make a difference in their world.

The title track of the album, “Endless Praise” opens the album with a rousing dose of techno-driven rock that is repeated throughout the album on other songs, such as “Turn It Up” and “Dance.”  There's an undeniable infectious energy to most of these tracks that will appeal to those across the generations. This live album will definitely sound good played before arenas of Christians joining in worship. Those who appreciated the 80’s techno will bounce and the current generation will be ready to jump.

Endless Praise also slows down the tempo on songs such as “No Other Name,” “Abide With Me,” and “Made For Worship.” The latter song declares our humble call to worship, invites us to bless God’s name, and acknowledges the overwhelming majesty of God in us. The lyrics are fairly simple with a chorus that echoes the cry of my soul; “I was made to worship, I was made to bless Your name, I will shout Your praise forever.” The song builds to a rousing finish in a manner that draws us away from ourselves into a worshipful attitude toward our Creator. “Made For Worship” in particular would be a welcome addition to many Sunday morning setlists.  

With Endless Praise, Planetshakers Band continues to produce live albums that are appealing and approachable for worship. Planetshakers Band will bring their energy to Awakening events in San Diego and Dallas in March of 2014, and has plans to tour nine U.S. states and 17 countries this year.  With that sort of schedule, I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from Planetshakers Band in a venue near you.
