It's that good. And while, of course, that isn't the goal of the Passion Movement (and this humility makes the album’s victory all the more resounding), the analogy fits. “Passion: White Flag” surpasses ALL in its scope and heavenly grandeur.
At times powerfully intimate in its vivid and emotional displays of worship, it’s also quite musically diverse and a lot of fun in the process. The lineup is perfect; it’s more varied than last year’s “Here For You,” but it seems natural that with lead/major songwriting credit on at least nine of the songs, the album still feels something like a Chris Tomlin EP (which I’m nowhere near complaining about). Each of these nineteen songs (including the bonus content and two extra music videos) feels fresh and every artist is at the top of his or her game—all pointing to a God who’s always been at the top of his. I don’t know about anyone else, but this album—and the beauty and passion displayed within, as well as the movement’s commitment to end modern-day slavery—has again reminded me of why I waved my “white flag” to God and love in the first place.
“Passion: White Flag” is perhaps the best addition so far in the 268 Generation’s archive of worship tunes and will certainly find its place in Sunday morning corporate worship. Every song in this collection serves as poignant, heart-wrenching worship that speaks directly about a message of hope and life—true life—found in surrender, in laying down one’s life before the Cross. Before a God who laid himself down for us—who waved HIS white flag to buy OUR victory.
