WOW Hits 2012 - 2 CDs

(EMI, Provident, Word)

Being an avid listener of 20 Countdown Magazine on UCB, I was familiar with a large number of these tracks before I had this album to review. This album features 33 songs and is a fantastic cross section of top Christian songs and has something for everybody.

The artists include popular worship leader Chris Tomlin and also well known bands such as Casting Crowns, David Crowder*Band, and Third Day. There is also the first solo release from Peter Furler of Newsboys fame. Other bands of note include Sanctus Real, Mercyme, The Afters, Leeland and Tenth Avenue North as well as newer artists such as Royal Tailor and Dara MacLean.

If you are not familiar with what is out there in terms of Christian music then I would recommend this as an excellent starting point, and it would be remiss of me not to mention Jeremy Camp, Natalie Grant, Mark Schultz, Matt Maher, Brandon Heath and Francesca Battistelli who also feature. To date this album has sold 17 million copies. I could go on … 9/10
