REVIEW: Hillsong UNITED – Live In Miami
Aftermath: Live In Miami
For the first time in four years, Hillsong UNITED brings a fresh live album to the end tour that sold out venues across the United States and became the first Christian group to sell out the Staples Center. The two-disc album contains the hits from their “Aftermath” album and fan-favorites from years past. It’s a more-than-welcome addition to both your personal collection yet also provides variety and inspiration to arrangements in Hillsong songs you are likely already using in your congregation.
More: Aftermath: Live In Miami does an amazing job as live album – not leaving the listener feeling as if it is an album mixed for a studio release. Instead, it leaves the true audiophile feeling like you are actually at the live concert without the bootleg-feel.
Less: Hillsong UNITED has always had an amazing way of being able perform their songs acoustically. I would have loved to hear them pull off a couple in a very toned down acoustic worship fashion in this monumental album.
