This is a copy of my HOUSEFIRES II review, but why not?
This is kind of a review for I I and III -- not for individual tracks so much as just the experience of something so refreshing:
I've heard II and III and this is the real deal. It's hard to find prerecorded worship music which genuinely sounds Spirit-filled -- it's usually very craftsmanlike product with just signifiers of emotion. But Housefires' stuff is terrific and feel genuine. The musicianship is superb, but the spiritual connection is, and I appreeciate that the audience is recorded well so that the listener really feels a sense of a house in worship together and not a bunch of people performing songs for an audience. Highly recommended.
This group has become one of my favorites! Housefire II and this album makes me realize how blessed we are with such talented worshipers who love God!
Phenomenal, annointed and powerful
As always Housefires deliever a solid album that allows you to soak in the presence of the Lord. Reminscent on how good of a Father He is. Thank you.
Such a great album!! This band never disappoints! Don't go another day without this album. Yassss lord! 🙌 #kaplesyrup
This album lacks the passion and spontaneity that made Housefires II great. I've been waiting for this album for a while, but was really disappointed by the lack of creativity, originality, and passion on this third record. Most of the songs are extremely repetitive and long. I would recommend downloading "Yes and Amen"
"Fill Me With the Fullness"
"On and On"
I wish I could have given this album 5 stars, but it really lacked the passion and "umph" that Housefires II had.
Wow! I have cried so much to this!!! Jesus thank you! The worship in this album is truly from the heart and anointed from the Holy Spirit! So blessed to have Housefires here in Atlanta & call them Home! MUCH LOVE!!!
Simply just amazing.
Love it. And I love Patrick Barrett
This new album is slamming my heart with simple and profound love love love. Best one yet. ❤️🔥❤️🔥❤️🔥🔥❤️
If you I like a short phrase in constant repetition
By David Housholder
Worship music tastes vary. Some will (and judging by the reviews have) appreciate this album. In my case, if the song repeats a single phrase over and over and over I wonder why reviews call it creative writing. I bought it based on the reviews of how powerful it was. I may try it again sometime, but I think it will remain a $9.99 disappointment.
There is a hypnotic effect of short phrase repetition, but I prefer music with content like from Daniel Bashta or Matt Redmon or Third Day.
