Reviewed by Chris Webb

The Bible Epic Mini Series phenomenon of US TV brings the Bible to the visual generation, clearly a good thing! This CD is advertised as music inspired by the Mini Series although the tracks are lifted from albums by various artists and do not feature in the TV programme. There is insufficient attribution to which track links to which Bible story. The artists could have given background to their music and why a particular Bible story inspired the song. Sometimes it is clear, "Mary Did You Know", lead vocals by Kenny Rogers and Wynonna, asks if Mary, the mother of Jesus, foresaw his future when he was a baby and Group 1 Crew's "Fearless" reflects on David and Goliath. You must guess at the others as they could link to any number of stories. A variety of styles, the rockier tracks have jangling guitars and Coldplay-style backing vocals seemingly so loved at present by US bands, some are power ballads, others more peaceful, thoughtful pieces and "Wash Me Away" is a country influenced offering from Point Of Grace. Noteworthy is Chris August's "This Side Of Heaven", thought provoking lyrics with acoustic guitar backing; For King & Country's "Crave", sounding rather like Chris Martin, identifying we all need hope and "Home" performed by Dara Maclean, whose voice is reminiscent of Natasha Bedingfield. A reasonable compilation though, as mentioned already, the whole concept is a bit questionable.
