Not in a rut but in a groove, the veteran group Casting Crowns continue to explore various forms of music with each album and label them accordingly. The Live albums are dubbed Live albums, the Acoustic Sessions are marked as such, and their Hymns collections begin here with Glorious Day: Hymns of Faith. The categorization doesn't diminish how powerful and empowering these performances are, but those looking for an entirely new album should know half of these tracks come from previous efforts, and not always the ones a fan would expect. “If We Are the Body” comes from The Acoustic Sessions, Vol. 1 while other numbers are featured in their slightly shorter radio edits, making this a unique and unexpected set.
