Great as the Songs are, they're not the BEST of 2008! | Posted October 28, 2007
Don't get me wrong, there are some real shiners here. Casting Crowns shows up, as they well should, but I consider much of their last CD to be better than much of the other tracks on this disc. And the fact that the track chosen for them was from their PREVIOUS CD was disappointing... no East to West?
Tomlin, Rush of Fools, Glory Revealed's "By His Wounds", and Big Daddy Weave are all good choices for the CD... they're stuff that really highlights what CCM sounds like. But BWD was also from 2006, which doesn't make a placing on the 2008 CD logical. Britt Nicole is added singing not her hit "You", but "Set the World on Fire", a far less popular track for sure. David Crowder is suspiciously missing, even though they had a song from their new CD on WOW 2007's DVD, and Aaron Shust is strangely represented by a minor track... why not "Word of God Speak"?
Although the CD is a nice mix, it's not really the best 30 songs to choose to represent 2008.
