A Must-Buy for MWS Fans

"If you love even one of MWS's songs, you will love this CD. It is a collection of most of the best songs that he has recorded in the last 10 years. It is so essential to any MWS fan because it is the ones that, to me, have been so significant in my life. There are also 3 new songs, one of which was written by his son Ryan, "Signs." There is also a new version of "Friends" featuring many of the leading Christian artists at the moment, which is amazing. The songs on this CD are as timeless as Michael W. Smith.
Also, you can get the limited edition DVD, which, after 3 tries, finally got to work on my computer. It features 4 music videos, with commentary, as well as a retrospective of the last 10 years by MWS. I loved it--I watched it before I listened to the CD. I recommend this CD to anyone willing to listen."
I wish he had called me to help him pick the selection

"I realize every MWS fan has his own favorite CD, songs, memory, etc., but I think the producers of this CD could have done a little better. As I said on the "I'll Lead You Home" CD review, nothing MWS produces is bad. Its just degrees of good. Since I didn't care as much for that CD as I have for his others, and since many of those songs made their way on here -- at the expense of better ones -- I have to ding this just a little. But keep in mind that I have everything MWS has ever produced (except maybe one VHS video).First, the good stuff. As he did for the 1993 First Decade CD, MWS adds a couple of new studio tracks, plus a new arrangement of Friends, that are first rate. Since MWS hasn't produced an originally written and produced vocal CD since 1999, these songs were refreshing and possibly a hint as to what's up next. My small problem with this compilation is the other stuff put on it. From 1992 through 1998, MWS produced only 1 CD -- I'll Lead You Home. Since then, in the same time frame, he's done 6 projects before this. Perhaps due to it being that long ago, he puts 4 of the Lead You Home tracks (one remixed) on here. That's fine, but considering his best work (or at least one of his two best) "This is Your Time" only has one entry -- the title cut, I think two from Lead You Home and three from Time would have been better. In addition, while "Cry For Love" is a great song, the rest from the Lead you Home CD aren't even the best ones on there.OK, enough complaining. For those of you getting started with Christian music, this is a great place to start. There's no indication that MWS is anything but what his image projects: a man that stands behind the message he sings about. For 20 years, this guy has produced some incredible music (including for others) and while other artists that came before and after have drifted away for one reason or another, MWS still produces and sells. I'm not a big fan of where so-called contemporary Christian music has gone. I'm not buying much new of this music, but I'll never pass up a MWS CD."
Good pick of songs but...

"I became a fan of Michael W Smith about the time his first decade of songs album released in 1993. After being a fan for the past years, I realized that you can't put all of Michael's great songs on one CD. This second decade of songs album is a very good pick of songs from his albums since 1993 and it has some of Michael's greatest EXCEPT all fans should remember that this isn't a greatest hits package but rather, chosen songs from the past decade. If you keep this in mind, the CD is very much worth it's purchase. I highly recommend this album, especially if your new to MWS. I love the song, Raging Sea."
