The WOW Hits series has proved to be very popular--that's no surprise, considering how many true hits are packaged in each set. The 2005 edition offers great variety, with well over two hours of music from pop artists like FFH and Stacie Orrico, to worship stalwarts David Crowder Band and Casting Crowns, to rockers Kutless and Third Day, to newcomers Mute Math (former Earthsuit members). The two CDs are really a great assortment, making it easy for listeners to figure out which artists they enjoy as they decide what CDs to get. Of course, the 31-song double disc set can be enjoyed for its own sake as well, with over two dozen songs from the top artists in Christian music, plus bonus songs from brand new groups such as Day of Fire, featuring vocalist Josh Brown, who was formerly with Full Devil Jacket. While living the stereotypical hard-rocking lifestyle, Brown overdosed on heroin. God transformed his life while he was in rehab, and now he wants to spread the message of salvation.
