It's hard to believe that it's been a decade now since Delirious? released their first album Cutting Edge in the US. Since then, Delirious? have been widely considered the forerunners of the modern worship movement. Their songs "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever," "Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble," and "Majesty" are sung in worship to God in churches around the world.
But after we've sung these songs in church, then what? When the service is over, do we go out and continue to build a kingdom for ourselves, or are we applying our faith and making a difference in the world? These are some of the questions that Delirious? raise on their 11th studio album, Kingdom of Comfort. But rather than providing all of the answers, Delirious? present these questions in a way that challenges listeners to think about these questions for themselves.
From album to album, the sound of Delirious? has evolved in a way that makes each album unique, while retaining a style that is recognizably Delirious?. On Kingdom of Comfort, Delirious? have abandoned the polished production style of World Service and The Mission Bell and returned to a raw production style similar to Glo and Audio Lessonover. Songs like "Give What You've Got" and "Break the Silence" capture the band's live sound, and although Kingdom of Comfort is an album themed on social justice and poverty, there are plenty of congregation-friendly worship songs as well.
From the opener "Kingdom of Comfort" to the closing "My Soul Sings," Kingdom of Comfort is a worship album that does more than just provide new songs for congregations to sing in worship; it also reminds us that the greatest worship that we can give to God is to show His love to those in need.- Review date: 3/29/08; written by David Taylor
