This is a hilarious album! All the tracks are classic Veggie Tales songs, re-recorded by well-known CCM (contemporary Christian music) artists like Superchic(k) (Everybody's Got A Water Buffalo), Paul Coleman (I'm So Blue), and Audio Adrenaline (The Hairbrush Song). Lots of fun, especially for all the closet adult Veggie fans out there!

The Best of Two Christian-Music Worlds

"All in all, if you like modern rock and found the original VeggieTales songs charming, this is the perfect album for you. Some of the biggest names in praise music today, including the Newsboys, The O.C. Supertones, and Relient K, put their own silly spins on some of the most-loved songs from the Veggie Tales canon. Mostly, we're talking "Silly Songs with Larry" tunes like "I Love My Lips", "The Hairbrush Song", and my personal favorite, "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything". That last was why I bought it- I had been considering purchasing the soundtrack to the VeggieTales movie because it had a cover of my favorite Veggie Tune by Relient K, my favorite Christian rock band. I found this instead, and I'm glad I did. Some of the remakes are a little off; Relient K, for instance, tries a bit too hard to put their own brand of humor into what is already a very funny Silly Song. Others are great precisely because of how they depart from the original; the final track, "Stand", was originally a sprightly soprano jazz ditty sung by Junior Asparagus about his mommy's moral guidance. Covered by Skillet, however, it becomes a serious hard-rock anthem worthy of Rammstein (if Rammstein sung about their mommys' moral guidance).
The liner notes proclaim loudly, "This ain't your kid brother's VeggieTales!" They're wrong- it is his VeggieTales. But now, it's yours too! It certainly made my day."

"I came from a pretty hardrock background as far as music goes, so it was refreshing to find stuff with clean fun lyrics that also sounds good. These Veggie tunes rock me to the core!"
