[REVIEW] Let There Be Light by Hillsong Worship


Let There Be Light

Hillsong Worship

Let There Be Light is Hillsong Worship’s 25th live album, and once again they prove they are leaders when it comes to penning engaging worship songs.

Simpler in melody than Hillsong’s alternative bands (UNITED and Young & Free), Let There Be Light sticks to their traditional sound – catchy, repetitive choruses, simple chord progressions, compelling vocals and lyrics that reflect the core beliefs of Christianity.

Showing the maturity to pull back musically and vocally throughout the album, there is ample time for reflection.

Many songs are based directly on Scripture, such as Your Word which communicates the themes of Genesis 1 and Psalm 119.

Highlights include What a Beautiful Name, with the ethereal vocals of Brooke Ligertwood, and I Will Boast in Christ which turns into a medley of Nothing But the Blood of Jesus.

Let There Be Light is an invitation to step back from the cynicism and chaos of the world and meditate on Christ.

A tool for personal and corporate worship, it is a breath of fresh air in a synth-saturated worship market.

Let There Be Light is available for purchase from Koorong for $24.99.
