The selections on this CD are unique, fun and inspiring songs about faith in real life. I particularly like GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD. CARTOONS is fun and silly, my kids love it.

"Seven years ago, Rocketown Records released the first CD from their first artist. It's hard to believe it's only been that long since we were introduced to the music of Chris Rice. That very first CD captured me with his honest, poetic, and fun lyrics. Each release has continued to impress, challenge, and encourage me.After four regular releases and two piano CD's under his belt, Chris now releases this best of. While it often seems like labels are rushing into collections these days, Chris has already had 11 #1 songs, so there's plenty of material. In fact, with 17 songs and over an hour of music, fans can't complain about being shorted at all.The CD offers two new recordings from Chris. The first is his classic song "Go Light Your World." While a huge hit for Kathy Troccoli, this is his first recording of it. Also featured is his new song "Mama Prays." While the subject of parents' prayers affecting their kids is nothing new to Christian music, Chris manages to put a new spin on it that really shows the power of prayer.Also featured are two new recordings. "Clumsy" features a live recording from a concert in 1998. His latest hit, "Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)" also gets a slightly new arrangement - this time a studio cut, however.Which brings us to the previously released hits. As I said earlier, there are a plethora of them, and everyone should be pleased. It opens with "Deep Enough to Dream" and cycles through "Smellin' Coffee," "The Other Side of the Radio," "Smell the Color 9," "Welcome to Our World," and "Smile (Just Want to be with You)" to highlight a few. All four of his traditional releases are well represented with this even mix of songs.And, yes, for those wondering, it does included "Cartoons." It's the last track and is the live version from the "Night in Rocketown" CD.It's a sign of how much I love Chris's music that I can name at least one song from each CD that should have been included but wasn't. Still, this is a strong compilation that will be a must buy for hardcore and casual fans alike. And if you happen to have missed out on this wonderful artist, this is a great introduction to his more popular songs. Just keep in mind that this barely scratches the surface of the wonderful music that awaits you."
A perfect journey through the musical career of a humble man

"I learned of Chris's music fairly late in his career so I had only heard the songs from his latest record, but something just told me to buy this CD...I knew it would be good. Having only had it for 1 day, I already know all the words and have listened to little else. For newbies, this would be a good choice because it's such a range of his styles. For the seasoned Ricer it's got almost all the favorites on it.Highlights include:
Deep Enough to Dream - Passionate, catchy tune
Go Light Your World - Reworked standard, nicely changed, inspirational
Smellin' Coffee - Fast paced, upbeat, joyous, my personal fav.
"I'm smellin' coffee, birds are singing just outside. Here comes your mercy streaming in with the morning light."
The Other Side of The Radio - Catchy, cute
Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)- Unless you've had your head in a hole then you've heard this on the radio, it's slow and honest. :)
Smile - Almost like a love song to a person, but directed towards God.
Face of Christ - True story song about faith, very moving.
Cartoons - No collection would be complete without his "monster" as he puts it. An unplanned favorite that he does because it's so requested. Love it! "Ya-ba-da-ba-lluah!"As you can see I highlighted more than you would normally highlight but when I started to look down the track list, I just couldn't leave many of them out. Bottom line, if you like this kind of music, it's a GREAT disc! You'll be toe-tappin' and experiencing God in 5 minutes, I guarntee it! What a wonderful experience this has been. Pick it up, NOW! You won't regret it."
