It’s every voice together, changing the way we worship. Category Religious/Christian Genre Contemporary Praise/Worship Release Date October 26, 2018. Rating 5 Stars Review Tomlin’s Holy Roar is so full of heart, worship, and absolute surrender to God, prepared with a zeal that persuades the listener in holy atmosphere to do the same. The music is the most excellent blend of contemporary praise/worship (in recent times)–rich with depth, passionate lyrics, and the wealthiest of melodies, touching on subjects from faith to heaven and [almost] everything in-between. There’s a “good ol” feeling to some of the songs that remind one of the old greats, and yet, still combines fantastically with the songs that are more modern/urban. Holy Roar, as Tomlin implies, reverberates with enthusiastic praise and surrender that stems from the unrelenting passion to worship God and lead others to do the same. A beautifully put-together …
