The newest in the Wow series of contemporary Christian music is as slick-sounding and solid as its successful predecessors. The two-disc set begins with a solid alterna-anthem (DC Talk's plaintively overwrought but super-catchy "Into Jesus") and ends with a kiss (Fernando Ortega's inspiring, Nashville-tinged "Lord of the Eternity"). The compilation's 33 tracks really do run the gamut: the polished, pure pop of Avalon and Point of Grace; Christian swing music; the atmospheric, spiritual sounds of Maire Brennan and Jaci Velasquez; the spirited belting of rocker Jennifer Knapp; a dance-pop act from the U.K.; the veteran confessional singer-songwriter folk of Amy Grant; Christian ska; and the late Rich Mullins's moving, visionary gospel-folk. CCM stalwarts and newcomers alike will be pleased by this release. --Mike McGonigal

"This c.d. is the best of the WoW's yet. If you like Newsboys, Jars of Clay, DC Talk, Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant, Jaci Velaquez, and all the rest, you will adore this c.d. It starts out with a bang with DC Talk's "Into Jesus", Newsboys' "Entertaining Angels", and Jars of Clays'"Crazy Times". It ends really slow and sweet, and it has three bonus tracks on it from new christian singers. It has a lot of different types on it, from swing,(the W's song,"The Devil is Bad")Pop,(Out of Eden's,"If you really knew") and a little bit of fun(Veggie Tale's, "His Cheeseburger"). It's got some slow songs for stuff like bible studies, but it also has some rockin' rhythms on it if you just feel like getting up and dancing! You could argue with some of the choices in it(I frankly think they shouldn't have chosen MWS's Give me Love.)But overall this is a really good collection. I wouldn't suggest it to people who are really stuck on tradition, but it's good for teenagers, young adults, and the young at heart. Some of it sounds something like TLC, Backstreet Boys, and Alanis Morisette, for those that normally listen to secular stuff. If you're just getting into christian music, this would give you a wide variety of musicians and styles. This is the c.d. in my collection I listen to the most, and I would reccomend it to anyone who enjoys listening to good music that praises Christ Jesus!"

"This is a great CD. I just got it and i'm already hooked. The best thing about it is that i listen to it as I Fall asleep and it reminds me to pray for all the great things God has done."
