Very Bad Nov 13, 2006
this is not the best petra's compilation. Petra praise 1 it's much better, and this album almost have only the petra praise's 2 songs... so isn't good.
One Of The Best Petra Compilations Aug 9, 2006
Whether or not Petra had anything to do with this compilation of praise and worship songs, you cannot take away from the excellence of the music. From the very beginning of "Ancient of Days" to the conclusion of "Creed," this album is a nonstop worship machine. For people like myself who can't afford to run out and buy every album by a certain group, this and many other compilations are wonderful to own. They give you a solid amount of good music by a group without having to shell out too much green.
My personal favorites on this album include "Lord, I Lift Your Name On High" and "The Holiest Name." Granted, the bulk of this album is compiled by Petra's two praise projects, but it is a nice mixture of both albums as well as a few songs from other albums. I especially enjoy the fact that with this album I can bring it on the road with me and only keep track of one disc instead of three or four.
This is a wonderful album that I'd add to any Petra fan's collection. Highly recommended. It's one of the best praise and worship discs out there.
Another Cash-In From Petra's Former Label. Jul 22, 2003
The two stars given above are for the compilation and NOT the music. If anything, the music definitely deserves five stars. In the case of Petra, one of the longest-running pioneers of Christian rock, there has been an ongoing trend of record labels cashing in on the band after they've moved on to another one. With Word Records, whom the band was signed with from 1989-2000, this is no exception. Word released their first Petra compilation in 2002 entitled "Still Means War" consisting of various songs whose lyrics dealt with victory over spiritual warfare. Now in 2003, Word has struck again with yet another compilation. "The Power of Praise" consists of material mostly from the band's first two Praise projects, 1989's "The Rock Cries Out" and 1997's "We Need Jesus". There is also one track each from 1990's "Beyond Belief" (Creed), 1991's "Unseen Power" (In the Likeness of You) and 1995's "No Doubt" (We Hold Our Hearts Out To You). While the music itself is not bad, the compilation is somewhat uneven and patchy. The band was not involved in the preparation for this compilation whatsoever. There is no doubt in my mind that with a brand new Petra album being released in August 2003 on current label Inpop Records, Word had to act quick to cash in on the buzz surrounding the upcoming release. To hear this music in the proper context, I would recommend picking up "Petra Praise-The Rock Cries Out" and "Petra Praise 2-We Need Jesus" as well as their 2001 release on Inpop Records, "Revival". "The Power of Praise" is for Petra collectors only. Others may want to pass on this one. The music is excellent though.
