|Why? Jul 20, 2005|
|This release is an absolute absurdity. A "live" album is not something that should be released after only one previous album. The only plus would be the DVD that has the American Dream video, but that is only granted you like that song.|
Don't purchase this CD. It is a marketing ploy, and nothing else.
|Enjoyable DVD Jul 13, 2005|
|Although there isn't much new music here, I enjoyed the DVD portion. The DVD has concert footage of five songs which are also on the original Casting Crowns CD. It also has a music video of 'American Dream'. There is one bonus track: "Beautiful Savior".|
I enjoyed this, but buyers should be aware that there isn't much new here.
|Wonderful Plus Apr 26, 2005|
|This DVD/CD is well worth its price. The special features and live versions of their songs are a great addition to your worship music collection. This is more than just a repeat of the debut CD. The DVD reveals the real purpose for the group called Casting Crowns. I won't give away the secret. You will have to find out.|
|Great Music, but Little New for Fans Sep 24, 2004|
|To celebrate the release of their major label debut, Casting Crowns did a concert in Atlanta. This two disc set preserves that concert for all their fans.|
Disc 1 features the soundtrack. It presents 5 songs from their debut CD including "If We are the Body," "Voice of Truth," "Who Am I?" "American Dream," and "Here I Go Again." As a bonus, it includes a cover of the worship chorus "Beautiful Savior."
Disc 2 is a DVD of the concert with the same 5 songs. It also has some bonus features including the "American Dream" music video and interviews with members of the group.
I absolutely love this group. Their debut CD was one of my favorite CD's from last year and still gets played quite regularly almost a year later. So my complaint with this CD has nothing to do with the music. Normally a Live CD is released after several studio projects have been done. This gives is some value as it puts songs together that were not on the same disc before. In reality, there is very little new content here to justify the price, even with it being cheaper then a new CD normally is.
Fans will have to determine for themselves if this disc is worth buying. Those who love and watch concert videos will certainly want to get it. If you're new to the group, get their self-titled CD. It's got these songs and more. Trust me, it will be money well spent.
