WOW Hits 2007 Disc 2 [edit]
by Various Artists - "WOW" Series | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: October 03, 2006
 

Get used to it. There's simply no fixing the titles of these popular WoW albums, which identify yesterday's most popular songs as tomorrow's hits. Nevertheless, after confusing old with new for a while, the series seems to have regained its focus as an effective snapshot of the biggest successes in Christian music over the past year"a "year" that extends back to songs available in stores as far back as 2004.

WoW Hits 2007 features many of the 2006 Song of the Year nominees for the Gospel Music Awards, which means the album includes some hits from late 2005. Naturally Chris Tomlin's worshipful "How Great Is Our God" is included, as well as Natalie Grant's "Held" and Third Day's Hurricane Katrina anthem "Cry Out to Jesus." The presence of Casting Crowns is also a sure bet, even though "Praise You in This Storm" should be here over "Lifesong""expect it on WoW Hits 2008. Mark Schultz's "I Am" and Relient K's "Who I Am Hates Who I've Been" represent two of the year's bigger hits for inspirational and CHR radio formats, respectively.

Also credit this set for recognizing some of the brightest rising stars, such as BarlowGirl, The Afters, Hawk Nelson, and especially Aaron Shust's breakthrough single "My Savior, My God," though Bethany Dillon seems conspicuously absent. And props for selecting three of the year's most promising new artists"Leeland, Ayiesha Woods, and "Can't Go On" from Group1Crew's forthcoming debut.

Some selections seem to be based more on an artist's long-term popularity than anything else. Michael W. Smith's "Here I Am," a minor hit from early 2005, feels well past its prime, and Newsboys' "I Am Free" from their forthcoming Go project continues the unfortunate trend of using a worship cover to trump an artist's superior original material as the future radio hit. Some questionable inclusions aside (Big Daddy Weave ... Plumb ... are they really that big?), WoW Hits 2007 gets the overall job done, whether you're new to Christian pop/rock or looking for a concise collection of the year's biggest hits.

Burn For You Describes What The CD Is Willing To Do | Posted September 18, 2007
I'll give them credit, they did put the redone version of "Burn For You" on the album, instead of the lame album radio version, however, the song is still a couple years old. The rest of the CD? This time the CD screams, BURN!!! Bad primer, bad CD, period.

Great Cd | Posted June 21, 2009
This is a great cd. its definatly better than disc one. I like all the songs except "Let Go" by BarlowGirl. And i'm not crazy about the radio remix of "Burn For You" either but its still alright and it doesn't take from how much i like this cd.

Great mix | Posted June 08, 2009
The songs on this CD are great too. "Who I Am Hate Who I've Been" and "Can't Go On" are really fun to listen to. I suppose WOW only misses the mark to those who listened to Christian music when I didn't.

Wow 2007 | Posted October 18, 2007
This CD was good. Although the songs on this album that I knew really well are boring to me now [i.e Relient K 'who I am..' Superchick 'We Live' etc.] I still really love the songs that I wasn't too familiar with, lik 'We' by Joy Williams, and 'Free' by Shawn McDonald. and i've always loved 'Dead Man, Carry Me' by Jars of Clay. alot of these songs on this album are good.
