I own a lot of Christian Music CD's, but this one is probably one of the most relaxing, but yet most prominant Worship CD's that I have ever known. Each song has it's own genuine characteristic, and all of the different voices (Mac Powell of Third Day and Leigh Nash of Sixpence None The Richer) add different colors to each song. Even Peter Furler from Newsboys is in one of the songs. If I had to pick one CD to listen to every time I went to bed, this would be the CD.
I like the idea of having such a variety of artists. I absolutely have fell in love with worship music here lately. I didn't give this CD a 5 because of the 2 whole tracks done by Sixpence. I don't like all the whining sounds she makes. I don't think that contributed to the CD. She sounds ok with other artists however, but not all by herself. Other than that an awesome CD.
I have found this CD to be one of the most intriguing of "various artist" genre in praise and worship. What I found most appealing was the adaptation of theme weaving into one general message, utilizing vocal and musical arrangements from talented artists of faith. Here is a chance to hear some of these artists in a humble, "unplugged" soulful depth not commonly found on some of their "music of origin". I was impressed with each and every members contribution and especially appreciative of the mixing of artist to achieve the quality and depth of worship that this project delivers.
This is a great CD! My 3 fave groups (FFH!, Third Day, Caedmon's Call) all in one place. "God of Wonders" is AWESOME beyond belief, as is "Where You Are." The only low point is the Sixpence song, In my opinion. Goandgetit! Goandgetit!
Sorry, I didn't at first much care for this cd, but I now take back ANY negative thoughts/ideas that were expressed in my previous review. This cd rocks. Not in a sense of beat, but in a sense of putting you in a peaceful/worshipful mood, and focusing on God. I still say that Sonicflood and FFH are awesome on this cd. Buy it, I'm glad I did.
