|A nice collection for the casual fan. | Posted April 25, 2011
Although this is probably a pointless release for the diehard Rebecca St. James fans, like myself, Back 2 Back Hits is a pretty good release for someone interested in her music and is just testing it out or are just a casual fan that wants some of her music. Worship God (2002) and If I Had One Chance To Tell You Something (2005) are, in my opinion, Rebecca's best releases and each album is represented by 6 songs.
Worship God appears first with "Song of Love", "God of Wonders", "Breathe", "Above All", "Let My Words Be Few", and "Better Is One Day". The first is an original pop/worship song by the songstress and should be well known by anyone who listens to Christian radio as it was once a big single. The other five are well known church songs that have Rebecca's signature sound printed all over them.
The last 6 songs are from If I Had One Chance... This album shows a grittier rock vibe from Rebecca that contrasts nicely with the first half of this album. The first four tracks are upbeat rock numbers that showcase St. James' passionate vocals and urgent, inspiring lyrical message. The final tracks of the entire album are the softest on the CD. They are both deep, beautiful songs that prove Rebecca can sing just about anything.
Overall, Back 2 Back Hits is a nice collection to introduce listeners to some of Rebecca's greatest music.
