Praise & Worship has a major problem with sounding stale musically and more cliche than every other generic death metal band. Though the purpose of P & W is for the use of spiritual growth-hence most listeners aren't in for a unique musical experience . And although The Glorious Unseen are unbearably cliche and predictable with the music-the nice atmosphere given to the music provides something a bit more creative than their peers. This actually fits quite well with the lyrical approach of things. This isn't game changing but it's a bit refreshing for such a musically stale genre. There are a few of the bland numbers but if the band utilizes their atmosphere ("Meet Us Here", "Hear Our Prayers", and the slow yet intense "Close to Your Heart" ) and experiment a bit they could progress Praise & Worship into something more musically creative.
this is a really great worship album. i loved sharing it with my friends. some people enjoyed it as much as i did, however, others found it too repetitive and slow. i can see where they get that idea. but it's a decision you'll have to make when you listen to it.
