Building off the massive success of Worship, Michael W. Smith is back with yet another collection of worship-oriented material. With Worship, Smitty cleverly captured the essence of today's modern worship movement with familiar material. Don't look for such familiarity on the more eclectic Worship Again, yet the passion of praise still radiates strongly from this mostly live release. Smith showcases his masterful composition skills at the very start, merging Rich Mullins's "Step by Step" into his own "Forever We Will Sing." The end result is a dynamic opener that feeds well into the choral magnificence of "You Are the Lord," another one of Smith's own and another reason why he could be considered one of today's finest hymn writers. It's interesting how Smith also includes the Chris Tomlin-penned "The Wonderful Cross," an ethereal-sounding update of an old hymn, as well as the classic-sounding but little known "Ancient Words." The call-and-answer chorus of "I See You" is another highlight, as is the rocking "You Are Holy (Prince of Peace)." Smith's variations on the worship theme never sound stale. --Michael Lyttle

I was certainly not disappointed when I listened. MWS brings the same passion and musical talent to this album, recorded live at Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY. It has upbeat praise choruses like "Step By Step/Forever We Will Sing," a moving instrumental, "The Sacred Romance," and the great chorus "I Give You My Heart," just to name a few. Awesome crowd and choir particpation made for a great version of "You Are Holy (Prince of Peace)." Amy Grant provides a nice solo verse in the studio cut of "Lord Have Mercy." And no one can deny the great patrotic tribute in the bonus track "There She Stands." "Worship Again" is a great follow-up to the "Worship" project. I give it 5 stars! I'm thinking Worship 3, how about it, Smitty?? ;)
Again, the majority of the CD is from a live recording featuring Michael W. Smith on lead vocal and piano with others on other instruments and a few people providing the additional vocals. He didn't reunite the all star group from the first CD, but this group of musicians does just as fine a job.
The song selection was more unfamiliar to me when I first got it, but there are some standout songs here as well. My favorite would have to be "The Wonderful Cross." I just love this modern take on the classic hymn. Two Rich Mullins classics are featured, "I See You" near the end and "Step by Step" as part of the opening medley with "Forever We Will Sing." I also really enjoy the last live track, "You are Holy (Prince of Peace)."
Once again, the studio cuts feature a song already on the CD live, this time its "Lord Have Mercy" which includes vocals from Amy Grant. He also includes "Here I Am to Worship" and, as a bonus track, "There She Stands," a patriotic song in honor of the US flag. While I like the song, I do wonder what it is doing on a worship CD.
Fans of the original will love this follow-up. Anyone looking for a good praise CD will find this one fits the bill.
I was not impressed with the 'filler' studio stuff except for the 9-11 influenced song "There She Stands", is a sobering patriotic song about American patriotism and the American Flag written by Smith and Wes King that is so moving.
The the only thing that disappointed me on this CD was that from talking to people who were at the actual concert this CD was recorded from, these people claimed that "Smitty" did a breathtaking version of the song '40' by U2 (which was Psalm 40 placed to music) and unfortunately, this was not on this CD. Many pre-release articles had stated that the '40' song was going to be on this CD. Knowing how Christian Music is ran these days, it was probably deleted because if 40 was on this CD, the 'official Christian perspective (Dobson and others)' would have bashed this CD.

I really enjoy Michael W. Smith and this CD was the best. I play it over and over again on my MP3 player. Great buy!Published 19 months ago by S. Nicholson
I loved the CD.
It was in good condition and it arrived fast.
However, the cover was cracked a little bit.
Perhaps if MWS did not entitle this CD "Worship Again," some of the reviewers would have been a little kinder. Read morePublished on Nov. 29 2003 by Rocco B. Rubino
