A Well Put Together Greatest Hits Album | Posted July 27, 2009
As my initial reaction, I must say that this is a well put together greatest hits compilation. You get a large variety of the newsboys songs, from "poppy" songs, to a little rock, and even some techno!
I also have to say that the Newsboys are an interesting group. A couple of the songs (for example, "Breakfast" or "Shine") I had to look up the lyrics for because at first they didn't make any sense at all! "Shine" started to make some sense, but I am yet to discover the meaning of the song "Breakfast"!
Songs I especially enjoyed included "Joy", "It Is You", and "Stay Strong". A couple of the fun songs on the CD include "I Fought The La" and "In The Belly Of The Whale".
The album has a total of 18 songs, including two new recordings ("Stay Strong" and "I Fought The La") and 16 previously released songs.
If you are not a Newsboys fan, but are somewhat interested in their music, then I highly recommend this CD!
