This is a POWERFUL P&W cd! My fave songs are Salt and Light, Headstrong, One Thing, Kingdom Come, Touch, The Ground You Shook.

Excellent compilation...a number of songs by well known groups (like Jars of Clay) that you haven't heard before, plus some groups you wouldn't connect with CCM (like South African singers Ladysmith Black Mambazo). GREAT STUFF!

Glorious moments

"The coordinators of this album obviously wanted variety on the record. They succeeded.I have to admit that when the cd began, I was a little worried. None of the first three songs were bad, they just didn't catch my attention."one thing" is beautiful lyrically, but ginny owens' talent is lost in the piece.steve taylor's track is...steve taylor. you either like it or you don't. i do, but i can see how it won't be hitting the singles chart anytime soon. I found the country-tinged "Wondering Where the Lions Are" a little more irritating, but still listenable.The LBM track is simply fabulous.Delirious? has the best track on the album. They are always wonderful though, so we can all expect that. Beautiful, honest lyrics meet with innovative, well-crafted music...they're one of the best bands out there, period. Their dedication is obvious.Burlap to Cashmere and Sixpence have great tracks also.Over The Rhine shows a lot of potential (as another reviewer said), hopefully we'll hear more from them.Much of the music is surprisingly dark, almost haunting. But the musicians involved on the record hold up Bob Briner's Roaring Lambs principle--to actually BE salt & light, not just talk about it. As far as I'm concerned, they can all rock on."
A Mixed Bag

"You can split this cd into two parts, kind of like Jekyll and Hyde. The one side is the generic CCM standard, and the second side being the more obscure and higher quality tracks.The two sides, thankfully are pretty even. Throw away Jars of Clay, Ashley Cleveland (who would have done a better job without Tait's "assistance"), SCC & Smitty, PFR, and Deliriou5? right away. Boring songs. But perhaps your average CCM fan would enjoy?For me, there are three standout tracks worthy of attention. First, the Steve Taylor track. It's quirky like fans have come to expect, and since he is more or less retired from performing, a surprise. The Ladysmith Black Mambazo track is a refreshing change from the pace with it's African vocal arrangements. And the Over the Rhine track is also quality with it's meandering piano and the majestic vocals of Karin Bergquist.Sixpence None The Richer delivers what fans have come to expect from them, a solid pop tune with Leigh Nash's trademark angelic vocals. While some people complain at the song's difference from their self titled cd, this is hardly surprising considering that Sixpence has been a band to evolve and not meld to any preconceptions. I give the song two thumbs up.Also enjoyable was the Bill Mallonee & VOL track. I can understand why that track isn't very popular amoung reviewers. If you're not into their alt.country sound, you won't like the track.The other two songs are ok. Ginny Owens has her moments, and the Burlap song is good, but doesn't quite touch some of the material from the full length.Three stars for the killer, but there is, indeed, too much filler."
