Product Description

This is the soundtrack to what is promised to be one the biggest hits of the 2005 holiday season. CD contains music that was inspired by the movie and features artists such as Jars Of Clay, Jeremy Camp, Steven Curtis Chapman and more. Chordant. 2005.

Amazon.com

Let's be clear from the outset that this release is not the soundtrack to the highly anticipated film adaptation of C.S. Lewis' age-old literary classic series: The Chronicles of Narnia. Nevertheless, the first The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe serves as inspiration to a collection of original songs penned by high-profile Christian artists. While knowledge of the books is helpful to grasp the emotional direction of this release, fans don't need to be all too familiar as nearly every song is attractive in its own right. Jars of Clay opens in fine style with the airy "Waiting for the World to Fall" followed by Steven Curtis Chapman's catchy "Remembering You" and Bethany Dillon's delightful "Hero." Other highlights include Delirious' "Stronger," which will remind fans of the band's superb Glo release from years back, and Toby Mac's "New World" which resonates with his street-hot brand of rap-rock. David Crowder fans will be pleasantly surprised with the exotic "Turkish Delight," a fun romp that takes Crowder's musical style the extra mile. Finishing the same way it begins, this Narnia release ends with the infectious "You're the One" from worship leader extraordinaire Chris Tomlin. Lewis' literary series has influenced generations of young believers and now a fine original work of art has encouraged more of the same. --Michael Lyttle

I had the fortune of hearing the clips of many of the songs featured on this inspirational soundtrack before the album was actually released, and this turned out to be what made me want to get it so much. There had been a batch of vignettes made where many of the featured artists talked about why they had written the song as well as a sample of each song itself, and I could see that a lot of heart had gone into each performance, besides that the music sounded just amazing!

I was not sorry then that I got this CD and I have listened to it semi constantly since I got it.

So see what you think!

Waiting For the World to Fall - Jars of Clay : It's been a while since I have heard anything by this particular group, but I must say they came through very well for this song. The lyrics talk about waiting for the amazement of Narnia, to be literally undone by it. It's fresh and full and a perfect beginning to the CD that gets you into the mood immediately.

Remembering You - Steven Curtis Chapman : One of my all time favorite artists, Chapman delivers a beautiful addition to this album. Beyond the inspiring lyrics of a promise to remember (Aslan) as the singer sees winter melt to spring, there is a lavish Celtic tone to the music which adds a real depth to the song and the album.

Open Up Your Eyes - Jeremy Camp : I have to admit, this was my absolute favorite song on the album. I had loved the clip I heard and couldn't wait to hear the rest of the song, and far from disappointing my expectations, my admiration of this song has only grown. Camp is one of the few artists who decided to tackle the struggle in the character of Edmund and he delivers it in a powerful piece with stunning vocals and moving lyrics.

I have been a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia since I found the series in third grade. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is by far my favorite book in the series. As such, you can bet I am counting the days until the movie premiers.

When I saw this CD, I had to get it. On it, a group of Christian artists have written and recorded songs inspired by the story. It's been released several months early to help peek interest in the film.

The songs are mostly good. They require knowledge of the story to fully appreciate, however. For example, Nichole Norderman's excellent summary of Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy will be lost on newbies as will all of TobyMac's song.

For those who do know the story, it will be lots of fun finding the references to events in the various songs. Some, like "Turkish Delight" will be rather obvious, but Steven Curtis Chapman and Bethany Dillon hide the meaning a little more. Bethany's song, "Hero" goes the farthest in tying the book into Christianity, but Chris Tomlin does a good job of this as well.

The drawback to this album is the various styles. As you might imagine, Steven Curtis Chapman, Rebecca St. James, and TobyMac all on the same CD creates some jarring moments. This CD has something for everyone, but it also has something everyone will hate. For me, the biggest problem is Toby's hip-hop. I will never be a fan of his music no matter how hard I try. I'm much more comfortable with the light rock of Jars of Clay or the adult contemporary of Steven Curtis Chapman and Nichole Nordeman. To be honest, many of these artists have surprised me by creating songs I wouldn't normally listen to but enjoy. I especially love David Crowder*Band's "Turkish Delight" with its infection rhythm and catchy lyrics.

These songs for the most part are deeper reflections on the undertones of the movie, mostly the character of Aslan and the the existence of the world of Narnia. If you accept that there is a thematic element that is Christian in nature, the songs will shed a different perspective on the person of Jesus, and the existence of the spiritual world. As I was listening to these songs, the sense of wonder and awe at the mystery and adventure of the Christian life came back to me. The songs are infused with yearning and worship, and will very likely refresh anyone's walk with God.

great original music inspired by the film/book. cash cow? not quite. simply good music by people inspired to write something.

better than alot of music out there, whether within or without the christian music genre.

really good listen because there are songs that rock out with beautiful power ballad pop rock feel.

jars of clay reminded me of a secular australian band powderfinger. jars and everyone played and sounded excellent. snippets of pop, rock, celtic, and more...

turkish delight has a great "contemporary" disco feel, that at first seems strange but than adds a fun twist to the more serious songs.

overall I highly recommended. not preachy at all, just very accessible rocky music for anyone. take the narnia plunge...

In terms of the Narnian feel of the music and lyrics, some people, myself included, may prefer the 2nd Chapter of Acts album titled The Roar of Love. It's also available on Amazon.com from Sparrow records. The songs pretty much track the story of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I will admit though that I enjoyed Turkish Delight in both albums because it gave me that deep seated feeling of comprehending the insidiousness of sin and the way we humans can get caught up in it.
