Guide Review - Music Inspired By The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Rebecca St. James, tobyMac and David Crowder Band all offer up extremely strong tunes, which vary the mood of the CD nicely.
It's obvious that every artist that was included on this project was truly inspired by C. S. Lewis' book and put their hearts into their musical offerings. Maybe it's just the warrior spirit in me, but I was surprised to not hear any songs that reminded me of the battle between good and evil, the bottom line of the book itself. I would have liked to have seen a bit more variety in styles, including the whole edgy, battle thing, but even without it, the CD, in itself, was a good offering.
I really can't wait to see the movie and am counting the days until it's December release.
