We've come to expect excellence from the WOW releases, which annually define the state of Christian music in the Word Entertainment world. WOW 2002 proclaims that all is well in the state and backs up the assertion with some 30 tracks. The red disc contains mostly hits tracks, while the gold disc features more adult contemporary numbers. It's nice to see Joy Williams's wonderful "Serious" single included on the red disc, as well as Nicole C. Mullen's underrated "Witness." One of the year's best singles, "All You Got" from Tait, also anchors the red disc. The gold disc's highlights include "This Day" by Steven Curtis Chapman, "We Delight" by Caedmon's Call, and Bebo Norman's "Cover Me." It's really hard to go wrong here, and if you're trying to show a skeptic that Jesus freaks can make mighty "joyful noise," this is the CD to share with them. --Michael Lyttle

CD Reviews

Too much Pop-Urban music, but has some great songs.

"I loved WOW 2001. It had a great mix of songs by some of he best bands and people you could ever think of. I was a bit disappointed though by this record. It has WAY too much Pop music...and not enough Rock. It's like they were trying to make this CD for christian 11 and 12 year old girls (and I know that not ALL pre-teen girls are into Pop music...but most are). Some examples of this are: "Jump, Jump, Jump" by Boy Band True Vibe and "God Is In This Place" by Boy Band Plus One. I know this song was a hit, but its to "Poppy": "Spinnin Around" by Jump 5. some more examples are "Genuine" by Stacie Orrico, and "Differant Now" by Out of Eden. I also don't like "Witness" Nicole C. Mullen...Its a HUGE contrast form last year's hit, Reedemer.Also (this has nothing to do with Pop music), I am a bit sad about that dc Talks SOLO songs (one from each guy) are on this disc and not a group song. I am glad though that each of the 3 songs are great: "Existence" by Kevin Max, "Somebodies Watchin' Me" by TobyMac, and "All You Got" by TAIT. But then, a few of the songs are badly chosen: Steven Curtis Chapman's song "Live Out Loud", one of the biggest hits of summer 2001, was replaced with "This Day" (I do like "This Day" though). "40 Days" was chosen instead of "Come Together" by Third Day, but if it was my choice, those two songs are on equal ground as to how good they are. "Jump, Jump, Jump" (a song I loath alot) was chosen over "Now and Forever" by True Vibe. One of the BIGGEST disapointments I had was "Breath(Live)" by Michael W. Smith. His rendition of "Above All" is one of his best songs (even if its very really slow). I am also sad that Delerious? was not included in this CD. I did give this disc (2 discs really) a 4 star rating though because thise CD does include some classics. For Example: this CD features the hit song "Isn't It Love" by Andrew Peterson. IS also has the Newest Newsboys hit, "Joy" from the greatest hits record. "We Delight" by Caedmons Call is very nice. I also love "Beautiful" by Audio Adrenaline. "Hey, Hey, Hey" is another neat 60's-rock style of a song by The Elms (Its a fun song). And the Mark Schultz song, "Back In His Arms" is awsome and inspiring. "Welcome Home" is also a great song by Shaun Groves.This is a great CD complilation, but if you buy it, expect some disapointments. Rock On People."
Great, but really needs more variety!

"First of all I love music more than anyone I know my age, and I am a big fan of WoW. I buy every wow cd(except gospel and worship) right when it hits the stores. My favorite was WoW 1999, because it had variety. There were worship songs, pop, rock songs, soft, light songs, i think even some gospel. But slowly they got less and less variety. WoW 2000 was pretty good, WoW 2001 kept me occupied a while but this- It's just-bleh. This just doesn't have variety. But it isn't terrible however. There are some good songs. Such 3rd day's 40 days traditional "40 days", AudioA's funky "Beautiful", toby's "Somebody's Watching", "Existence" by KMax, "Breathe" by Micheal W. Smith, and "Hey, Hey" by The Elms.
All in all, this is just you're average double-disk various artists cd. Try finding it on ebay, 'cause it's more worth 15 or 16 bucks than 20. Hopefully they've discovered they're problem and'll fix it on WoW 2003. But I'm not giving up on them yet..."
