Review // Third Day // Live Revelations


Atlanta-based Third Day is back with a live offering from their popular Revelation album. This CD, which was recorded throughout several of their tour stops, captures live tracks from their most recent album Revelations as well as favorites from years past. The album even  includes a remake of “When Love Comes to Town” by U2, which includes special performances by Robert Randolph, Jars of Clay and Switchfoot.

Southern-rock outfit Third Day is known in worship circles for Offerings and Offerings II, which have ushered in corporate worship staples “Show Me Your Glory,” “My Hope is You” and “Your Love Oh Lord.” However, other than their current worship hit, “Call My Name,” this live recording brings them back to their alt-rock roots. This 9-song CD won’t provide pastors much new material for church worship services, but listeners will still enjoy the soulful sounds of lead singer Mac Powell and company. It’s the perfect album for a Monday drive with the windows down and the volume up. In addition, pastors and leaders will resonate and be encouraged by the 75-minute accompanying documentary on DVD that shows a real-life glimpse into the balance of touring, ministry and family.
