Way back in 1998, Michael W. Smith's Rocketown Records released a pioneering album in the modern worship movement. Joined by artists such as DC Talk, Third Day, Sixpence None The Richer and Jars of Clay, Smith's project had a major impact on Christian music. Now Rocketown has re-released the CD with the addition of tracks by Taylor Sorensen, Nirva and the Robbie Seay Band. Sorenson'sSing (Or The Rocks Will Get To) is recorded here as a duet with that other M. Smith, Martin of Delirious?. Nirva (singer with TobyMac) contributed Martin Smith's Jesus' Blood, and Robbie Seay added his Hallelujah God is Near. My favorite track from the original is Michael W. Smith's Agnus Dei recorded by Third Day in what was at the time rather shocking rock fashion for a worship song.
Exodus is a nice bit of worship music history combined with some new tracks, and for those who don't have the original, this would make a nice Christmas stocking stuffer.
