Exodus: Give Love Away
Exodus' latest album "Give Love Away" has just been reviewed by Worship Leader Magazine.
Exodus is a band out of Liberty University...these guys are friends of mine and have hearts to serve and lots of skills to go around. The majority of the songs on this album are originals, and although the production of the album is a bit under par at times, it's still a good pick-up, especially if you're into Hillsong United, Chris Tomlin type stuff.
We've been using the title track "Give Love Away" for a few weeks...a great, fun song to play and sing with a solid message that can't be overused.
The only track I do not like is their cover of Hillsong's "Hosanna" which just sounds really cheesy and loses the anthemic energy it was meant to have.
These guys are really solid live and have a worship leading maturity that you don't often find at their age. They led worship recently for a youth conference our church hosts and during our normal Sunday morning gatherings, and I'd definitely invite them back.
You can find their album on iTunes.
