Overview

As special event albums go, this collection of U2 covers by Christian rockers is truly a labor of love. And that's not just because a share of the proceeds from In The Name of Love: Artists United for Africa will help support an AIDS-ravaged village in Zambia, Africa, through World Vision International. It also shows the love Christian artists have for U2 and singer Bono, whose activism on the topic first sparked the project, and it demonstrates how the Christian music community can summon its resources to tackle an issue shamefully ignored by the mainstream media. From a musical standpoint, there's plenty to love here as well; there's an eclectic group of artists involved, from crossover stars (Sixpence None the Richer, Jars of Clay, Tobymac), to hard-rock and rap names (Pillar, Grits, Sanctus Real), to the folk-pop of Nichole Nordeman. The tracks cover U2 signatures like "Sunday Bloody Sunday," executed with pounding intensity by Pillar, but there are some lesser-known covers, too: Starfield's version of "40" is mesmerizing, while Nordeman is beautifully eloquent in her performance of "Grace." Christian music fans love how U2 places spiritual themes in a mainstream context, U2 fans could potentially get clued into some talented Christian rock bands, and the 729 inhabitants of Mwakankomba village in Zambia can get some much-needed assistance. What's not to love?
