Overview

A contemporary Christian alternative to the likes of the Wiggles and Yo Gabba Gabba!, the seventh release from the children's ministry of the Sydney-based Hillsong Church is the first to be targeted specifically toward a preschool audience. Its 14 tracks, each of which is inspired by a particular Bible verse, may therefore feature the odd instructional dance routine ("Great Day") and burst of relentlessly cheerful dialogue (the title track), but there's little to differentiate it from the likes of the preteen-aimed 2009 predecessor Ultimate Kids Collection. Indeed, there's a surprisingly contemporary chart pop feel to several of its praise & worship numbers, particularly on "Free as a Bee," which apes the retro-soul of Cee Lo Green's "Forget You," and the Jonas Brothers-esque pop
ock of "Life with Jesus," while there's even a hint of a dubstep beat on the atmospheric ballad "I'm So Glad" (which alongside the Metro Station-esque punk-pop chants of "Let Your Love Shine" is one of two reworkings of previous Hillsong Kids numbers). The attempt to keep up with today's hit parade doesn't always work so well. "Alligator Goodbye" is a tinny sub-RedOne slice of synth pop that even Pixie Lott would turn her nose up at, while the banjo-led "Be Strong" and "My Favorite Things" are clumsy attempts to jump aboard the nu-folk bandwagon. But with only the sickly sweet "Tiny Little Voice" descending into the kind of happy-clappy schmaltz you might expect, Crazy Noise should be a reasonably enjoyable listen for churchgoing kids and parents alike.
