Live in Concert: God's Not Dead

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
The Newsboys will have to be taken at their word that Live in Concert: God's Not Dead was actually recorded during their tour of the same name. Sure, there are the requisite between-song shrieks and applause by the Australian Christian pop group's rabid fans, and the occasional interjection to "put 'em up" (surely they mean the audience's hands) and a bit of an introduction to a few songs. Otherwise, almost every single note and performance on this album have been tweaked and cleaned up and buffed to a point where they are often indistinguishable from the group's studio recordings.
