About this item
Whoever came up with the name WOW for the astronomically successful gospel series of the same title, is a genius. WOW is the one word that comes to mind when one truly understands the depth of God's love. Much like the first time a believer encounters the workings of the Holy Spirit, listening to the WOW collections is a soul moving experience. Ten years after the first WOW disc dropped, the blessed WOW Hymns arrives.
Like past WOW collections, WOW Hymns is a double CD set packed to the ceiling with tracks from the gospel world's best loved artists. Clocking in at 30 tracks, the two disc package is a Christian's dream collection. Classic hymns are refitted with a modern sound for a new generation of listeners; the old are slotted with the new. Five of the album's tracks come from the Amazing Grace movie soundtrack.
WOW Hymns features the elevating sounds of artists like Jars Of Clay (the hypnotic "I Need Thee Every Hour"), Bart Millard (a Dobro steeped version of "The Old Rugged Cross"), and Chris Rice (the exhilarating "Rock Of Ages"). Mark Hall and Casting Crowns bow to the Lordship of Christ, on the comforting "'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus." Hall lets the love of God flow from his heart and into the lightly sketched track. Old time fiddle and acoustic guitar hover just below Hall's warm vocals.
Newsboys offer up "In Christ Alone," a profound number with a soaring melody and heart piercing lyrics. "From life's first cry/ To final breath/ Jesus commands my destiny," frontman Peter Fuller sings boldly. Now that is a true 'WOW' moment. Selah cover the encouraging "There Is A Fountain," with breathtaking results. The group's golden harmonies complement the song's stripped down instrumentation. The David Crowder Band take inspiration to another level with the brilliant "Doxology." Crowder's trance-like vocals are soothing.
Singer/songwriter Mark Schultz dips into the vast public domain catalog of hymns for the Irish flavored "Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing." Shultz drains his soul of every last bit of emotion and sings with deep conviction. Christian rockers Building 429 ditch the edginess of their own material and slip into a folkie groove for "Grace That Is Greater." Singer Jason Roy and friend Matt Blair penned new verses for the hymn. Point Of Grace turn out a splendid a cappella reading of "All Hail The Power Of Jesus' Name."
Coming hot on the heels of WOW Gospel 2007, an out of the gate success, WOW Hymns is a welcome addition to the WOW series.
