After a long, long week, I could not wait to hit the Family Christian Store to pick up the WOW Worship Deluxe Edition CD. I feel like I have been waiting a long time for this one. One of my most listened to CDs is the purple WOW Worship CD (I have no idea what else to call it, it is purple). It is THAT GOOD! So good that I had to pick up this one. So without further ado…my thoughts.
The Deluxe edition CD costs a few dollars more than the regular lime CD, but with six additional songs, I felt it was definitely worth it.
WOW Worship (lime) contains music from many of my favorite artists and a few whom I had heard of but not listened to. I especially enjoyed Vertical Church Band and Elevation Worship. I will definitely be looking for more from them. Tim Timmons is also a favorite of mine and I was really happy to see him on the CD in the Deluxe Edition.
My favorite songs on the CD would be “Beautiful Things” by Gungor, “White Flag” by Building429, “Oceans” by Hillsong United and “10,000 Reasons” by Matt Redman. I do own a lot of the CDs that contain many of these songs, but it is nice to have so many in one set.
I enjoyed the majority of the 36 songs, the two songs that didn’t work for me were done by artists who I do like, but I prefer other artist’s versions. I like for King & Country but would have preferred Seventh Day Slumber’s version of “From the Inside Out” and “The Stand” by Hillsong Young & Free just had a Kidzbop feel. Both are very talented groups, this was just a personal taste issue. There are other songs that these artists do that I think would have been better choices for the CD.
All in all, this is a wonderful CD with a great selection. When plans come into play to release another, I will definitely be buying.
I give WOW Worship (lime) four stars.
