We Are Young and Free resounds with a vibrant message and mission from Hillsong Youth: to set the captive free and to make Christ’s name known. This stellar collection of songs from Hillsong are exciting and uplifting modern pop tunes with smooth, clear vocals, aimed at today’s teenagers and the music styles they love. Driving rhythms and pulsating synths give these songs a bit of a fresh twist on an eighties pulse. “Brighter,” and “Wake,” create a sense of excitement while “Gracious Tempest” and “Sinking Deep” stir the heart. “Alive” debuted in the number one spot on the iTunes Christian and Gospel Single chart. 

More: These vibrant songs will draw the young and the young at heart to worship a living, loving, saving God.

Less: This album is high intensity and the pulsing synths create a sense of excitement that by the close of the album feels relentless. Nevertheless these songs are a great addition to any youth group event.
