Bringing their sweeping and lush sound into a live setting, A Creation Liturgy: Live finds Gungor doing what they do best as they bring their blend of contemporary worship and plaintive post-rock to a rapt audience. With the audience joining in and singing along, the album gives listeners the chance to hear people being swept up in the band's music in real time, with Gungor drawing the crowd into their sprawling and dramatic compositions on track after track. Hearing the band pull off these intricate arrangements live is not only affecting, but also impressive, reaffirming Gungor's position as one of the most interesting and engaging faith-based bands working right now. A Creation Liturgy: Live is an easy recommendation for any fan of Gungor or innovative CCM in general, and the Muse-like drama and heaviness of the live version of "Dry Bones" makes the album a good deal all on its own.
