Rebecca St. James: The Ultimate Collection

This collection lives up to its name.

Rebecca St. James: The Ultimate Collection
Artist: Rebecca St. James
Label: ForeFront Records (www.forefrontrecords.com)
Length: Disc 1 – 13 tracks/53:45 minutes, Disc 2 – 12 tracks/48:15 minutes

Rebecca St. James has the heart of a disciple. It’s reflected in God-centered lyrics and modern music with an edge. It’s this combination of passion for God and artistic integrity that make her a continual favorite with fans.

This 2-CD set provides a comprehensive collection of her best material. This includes "Lion," part of the inspired by soundtrack for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe, "America," the theme song for the 2005 National Day of Prayer, and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," from WOW Christmas. Another bonus is "Expressions of Your Love," a duet with Chris Tomlin.

Older songs like "Pray" and "God" hold up well with their raw energy and rock. "Yes, I Believe in God" and "Here I Am" are inspired songs of commitment.

St. James adequately covers the praise and worship songs found here, but she is at her best on songs like "You Are Loved" that have a modern pop/rock sound. She’s too talented to not be devoting herself to the excellent original material that you find throughout this release.
