Making of the albumEdit

People Just Like Us was recorded live at the Hills Entertainment Centre by Geoff Bullock, Darlene Zschech and the Hillsong team. It has the first release of one of the most famous modern Christian worship songs of all time, Shout to the Lord by Darlene Zschech.

The Majority of the songs were written by Geoff Bullock, Russell Fragar, and Paul Iannuzzelli.

ReceptionEdit

In December 1997 Norman Smith of Cross Rhythms rated the album as 2 out of 10 and described the video as showcasing "glitzy, good looking, manufactured, well dressed, designer, brand new hairdo worship" where "only the beautiful, the groomed and the young are on display".[2] He opined that "Although the songs themselves are sung with a certain conviction ... no matter how it's dressed up, and this dog's dinner of an offering ... [is a] contextless collection of schmaltzy, Sydney soap song[s]".[2]
