Third Day: ‘Lead Us Back: Songs of Worship (Deluxe Edition) album review

When you’re packing a resume like that of super-band Third Day, you don’t have a lot left to prove. With GRAMMY and Dove Awards, international tour dates, and millions of albums sold, the Georgia-based quartet is still soldiering on, and they have no intention of slowing down. Lead Us Back: Songs of Worship brings them full-circle, with a masterful collection of new worship favorites. The addition of folk-tinged All Sons and Daughters on “Soul On Fire” makes it a toe-tapping good time, and it somehow sidles with “In Jesus’ Name,” (featuring Michael W. Smith), another stellar collaboration. A bit more of fresh material and more songs from their earlier works would have been nice, but overall, it’s a strong offering. All the live songs are superbly recorded and performed, and accurately capture the energy and power from a Third Day show especially on “Mountain of God.” Mac Powell and company never disappoint, but this is a fun, commemorative worship collection anchored in good ol’ southern rock.
