Two Different Tastes, Two Different CDs
Posted November 17, 2008
By TheLeviticalLawKid,


I recently purchased this 2 CD album at my nearby Lifeway because 1) it was on sale and 2) I always try to get the newest WOW album. And I have to say, the guys at WOW did a great job splitting the CDs up. Disc 1 is for fans of contemporary music (Casting Crowns, Selah, etc.), and Disc 2 is for people like me...the ones who want harder stuff (Hawk Nelson, RED, etc.). I enjoy a mix, and this is the album to purchase. Great for all-around Christian music junkies like me.

Starting off with Disc Uno:
Call My Name by Third Day, All Because of Jesus by Fee, and Song of Hope (Heaven Come Down) by Robbie Seay Band are the Top 3 songs on this disc. Third Day continues to amaze me with putting out great songs year in and year out, and Fee and RSB are the new breakout praise bands this year. Micheal W. Smith did a good job of Mighty to Save, and Above the Golden State's track surprised me on this CD.

Disc Dos:
My favorite CD, so this one will get a little more spotlight. The CD starts off with Everything Glorious by DCB, one of the best songs from Passion. This is Home by Switchfoot and Friend Like That by Hawk Nelson, two of the biggest hits this year, follow. The Best Thing by Relient K and Love is Here by Tenth Avenue North are next, two different songs that both are great additions to this year's addition of WOW. Needtobreathe's blues-like Washed by the Water is one of the best songs on the album. Brandon Heath's upbeat Give Me Your Eyes was a song for me that I didn't like at first, but after listening to it for awhile, it grew on me. I'm Letting Go is my only minus on this disc, could have been left off and replaced by another track. Then a triple shot of WOW is next: TobyMac busts out Lose My Soul, Stellar Kart tells everyone that Jesus Loves You in their unique way, and melodic rocking Leeland finishes it out with Count Me In. Fireflight's Unbreakable and RED's Already Over comes in with a Metal One-Two punch, and then Remedy Drive sneaks up with All Along. Then WOW finishes out with the best song, the newest hit, Sleeping In by Nevertheless.

Starting and finishing with a bang, WOW Hits 2009 is a must-have for any Christian Music fan. Now I can have the best songs on my Zune for the price of one album, instead of downloading the rest. If you call yourself a fan of Christian Music, then go out and buy WOW 2009! You won't be disappointed.
