In today's market there is a flood of great worship albums, something that is encouraging to see, and a trend that I would like to see continue. One such worship album is "Come and Drink" from new artist Matthew Reed released on May 31 of this year. 

"The time has come for the people of God to rise up" is the theme of the appropriately named "Awake Awake" which is the opening track. "Awake Awake" does a good job of introducing the feel and rhythm of the album. 

The title track "Come and Drink" is an offer for all to come to Jesus and receive life and forgiveness - "Come and drink the water singing / Come you thirsty / Come you sinners".

Song three "Crash This Place" is an upbeat track with some really enjoyable guitar rhythms, although not as aggressive as the title might imply. A fun track to listen to, and no doubt to play. I can really see worship teams adding this one to their playlists. 

"Come Now" basically continues musically where the last song left off. Not so although with "Emmanuel" which is very worshipful and quiet. A song you'll really want to play several times in a row. 

My favorite song "Pour Out" is the last one on the album. The fastest track of the six with a lot of nicely done layering both vocally and musically. There's always at least one song that gets stuck in my head, and this is the one. Great finishing song to an excellent album. If you're looking for more uplifting music to worship with, this is it. 

"Come and Drink" is a six song release that will leave you wanting more. I look forward to hearing a lot more from Matthew Reed in the future. Based on what I have heard so far, it will be good.

Is it really so important to know and obey God's Word if we're already saved? Isn't worrying about obedience just a form of legalism? Don't we live in the age of grace?
