Delirious?: The Cutting Edge Years (20th Anniversary Edition) Review

delirious the cutting edge 20th anniversary editionDid you know that, once upon a time, Delirious? was known as The Cutting Edge Band? Twenty years ago, this band began playing worship for small audiences, not knowing the full effect that their music would have on the Church. Now, twenty years later, even though Delirious? itself is no longer an active band, their songs live on, and Kingsway Records is celebrating this powerful band through the release of the four-disc The Cutting Edge Years: 20th Anniversary Edition collection.

The CDs included in the collection (42 songs total) are from The Cutting Edge's first four EPs as well as their LIVE and in the Can album. Just some of the many hits off these albums include, "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever" (probably my favorite Delirious? classic!), "The Happy Song," "Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble," "Shout to the North," plus many more. There are also several "spontaneous" tracks, where the band simply lets the presence of God lead. Besides the three CDs, a DVD included in the package features eight awesome live performances of their classics, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and the Delirious? story.

I just love how Kingsway Records put together this 20th anniversary album. Even though I had heard many Delirious? songs and was familiar with many more, I didn't actually own any albums in my personal collection. For those who are in the same boat as I was, this is a must-have collection! The three CDs and special DVD are neatly packaged in a gift box that also includes two Delirious? posters. The packaging is beautiful, and definitely makes for a great gift (even if to yourself)!

Through The Cutting Edge Years: 20th Anniversary Edition, you will be owning a piece of Christian music history, as well as be getting about four hours of purely amazing classic worship. It's a fabulous collection!
