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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
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...

I bought under the impression that this was a cd with musics from the movie.
The word INSPIRED BY should've given away but I guess it's my fault that I didn't realize that.

This collection is incomplete without the celestial sound of Michele Tumes and her "Untamed Lion". Why was this excluded?Published on February 12, 2007 by World Traveler
Everything about the Chronicles of NArnia is amazing; the books, the movie, the sountrack... Therefore, this album has a lot to live up to. But it does its job admiringly. Read morePublished on January 7, 2007 by Apurba Saha
