What began as an underground, college-friendly conference just over a decade ago has since become an internationally recognized worship movement, but Passion's heart to craft reverent and relevant praise remains the same. The latest installment features all the usual suspects (Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill and Charlie Hall), culled from solo and collaborative performances before 42,000 college students in January in Atlanta. It's a tightly performed blend of electronic rock, Brit pop, and booming ballads that work well with a congregation, though the calmer cuts could just as comfortably accompany personal prayer time.
