The Awakening album was recorded live in Atlanta with more than 22000 university –aged young people in attendance, during the Passion 10, a gathering of the passion conferences. It was released on March 9, 2010 and debuted at #1 on Billboard.com Worship Albums. Selling over 25,000 units and taking the No1 spot on the Christian charts, Awakening has experienced the biggest street week ever. Passion 2010 is basically a Christian Worship Concert organized by sixsteps records. The album features popular worship artists Tomlin, David Crowder, Matt Fedman, Charlie Hall, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfull, Fee and Hillsong.
The album opens with a piano and worship leader Chris Tomlin on the track “Awakening.” This sets the stage for the theme of the album. The song’s lyrics and rhymes are simple and not the least complex and it has a simple melody. The first track of the Worship album is “Say, say,” which conveys the message of the saving grace of Jesus. “How He Loves” is another song that marks the return of David Crowder to his Passion event. “Chosen Generation” is a song that returns Chris Tomlin to the list of artists, a straightforward song about how God has chosen his church to live steadfast for Him.
Some Critics on the other hand view that the album lacks flow and they also feels like some tracks are out of place and disruptive. Well it might not be the groups strongest compilation but it still holds true to the heart of the vision; a spiritual awakening. And that we do Pray it happens.
