Although I could easily be cynical about an artist who has enough following to guarantee sales success – even in a difficult music industry, I have to admit that Tomlin delivers a great album with a dynamic range of songs for the church. Although some male worship leaders still may strain from the high tenor soaring choruses, the songs still draw you close to the Savior and lyrically provide the foundation for churches to enter into worship of the King of Kings.

This album is well produced and includes other great artists who compliment Chris and fit the songs they’re featured in. It was wise to have other artists on the album to break up the monotony of the same vocal – so even Tomlin critics must conclude that the extra time spent on the album and the guest artists were well worth the effort. Chris spent close to a year on this album, whereas in previous releases, production was complete within only a few months.

Track 5 “God’s Great Dance Floor” reminded me of Michael W. Smith – especially the vocals in the chorus. Tell us what you think?

Action: Buy it. Burning Lights

Highlights: “White Flag, “God’s Great Dance Floor“, “Thank You God for Saving Me (with Phil Wickham).
