When you've cut your teeth cutting live albums - and have single-handedly become a one-stop source for multicultural church music - five years is a long time to be away from the game. However, in the case of gospel-praise supergroup Israel & New Breed, that's not really a problem. Its frontman, Israel Houghton, has kept busy all along, exploring the solo route with two albums, The Power of One and Love God. Love People., while continuing to resource churches for new material. The band accompanied the bandleader wherever he went - on tour with Chris Tomlin, on-stage at the Grammys and back home at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church.

It's at this Houston megachurch that Israel and the gang reassembled for Jesus at the Center, a double-disc recording in the spirit of the classics New Season and Live from Another Level. Like efforts past, Jesus consists of two main movements. The first one is a praise-fest featuring a string of high-octane numbers, running the gamut from corporate choral praise ("Jesus the Same," "More Than Enough") and contemporary gospel ("No Turning Back") to Latin electro-pop (the Pitbull-esque "Te Amo") and even a gospel-ska hybrid ("Rez Power"). The vibe isn't always congregational - "Te Amo," in particular, is more a dance party than a praise party - but that's merely Israel getting the audience primed for something a little deeper. The turning point is the pop ballad "Jesus at the Center," a rousing number giving way to the second movement, a stretch of worshipful, impassioned slow-burners that segue into one another.
