Christian Music's Best: Pop, the complementary release to this one, Christian Music's Best: Worship, samples Christian-oriented pop/rock with a variety of subject matter including the comfort that God can be when a romance turns sour. This album, on the other hand, is solely concerned with songs of praise directed to the Creator. "Your Grace Is Enough," declares Chris Tomlin, and ten songs later, Bethany Dillon is asking, "How Great Is Our God." Musically, however, a different inspiration is apparent on most of the songs. U2, while not a CCM band, has a Christian element, and many of the performers here clearly are in awe of the Irish group's sound, particularly the Edge's characteristic sequenced guitar sound. That sound is repeated in song after song, creating the appropriate anthemic effect. Kutlass breaks from this mold slightly on "Better Is One Day," if only to go in a Creed/Nickelback direction. But it isn't until the latter stages of the collection that the style really changes. Tim Hughes' "Here I Am to Worship" is more of a string-filled ballad, and the big break comes with Hillsong Live's "I Give You My Heart," the first song to feature a female lead singer, which turns out to be a pop singalong, complete with live audience. Phillips, Craig & Dean provide harmonies on "You Are My King (Amazing Love)," and Dillon closes the proceedings with a hint of country. As the best of Christian music, however, this is largely an alternative rock set. ~ William Ruhlmann
