WorshipMob - Carry The Fire [Review]

By Glenn Stout on March 03, 2015

One of the things I like most about doing reviews for AllAboutWorship.com, is being exposed to artists that I might not normally hear about. That’s definitely the case with this particular review of WorshipMob’s album, Carry The Fire. Although it’s their debut album, WorshipMob is a collective of Colorado worship leaders and musicians that have connected with a global audience of more than 54,000 YouTube channel subscribers and over 9 million views of their videos. Carry the Fire contains 12 tracks of both original compositions and a few covers.

Founded by Colorado Springs worship leaders Sean Mulholland and Garrett Chynoweth almost four years ago, the group began as a weekly gathering between two local worship teams. Today, the “Mob” represents 30 local churches through 70-80 ministry leaders who meet weekly to worship, pray together and encourage one another. The meetings are also “open to anyone who wants to come soak in the presence of God,” shares Mulholland.

Carry The Fire is the sort of album that draws you into a deep worship experience.  Although I’m not sure any of the individual tracks would resonate well in a typical Sunday set list, taken as a whole, the album is strong and evokes a deep worship response. It’s the sort of album where you want to put on your head phones and just get lost in it.

The album opens with a 10 minute ballad entitled, “Satisfy,” that has an ethereal evocative feel to it that draws you into a deep and intimate worship experience. That track is followed by 2 of the more up-tempo songs on the album; “Our Father Has Won,” and “Arrested By Grace.”  Both of these songs feature strong lyrics and a driving rhythm that captures you and continues that intimate worship experience.

The album also features two covers that are extremely well done: “You Make Me Brave” and “Oceans.” These songs fit perfectly into this album, both musically and thematically.

I’ve listened to this album multiple times now and find that it’s hard to not lose all sense of time while listening to it. It is the perfect album to get lost in during your personal devotion time, or when you go into your prayer closet and seek the Lord. Although I’d never heard of WorshipMob prior to this review, their new album is now on heavy rotation on the iPod.
