The Passion of the Christ: Songs Inspired By

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ was an unprecedented blockbuster, so it's only natural that a raft of tie-ins has kept the momentum of the controversial film going. This collection of 12 moody melodies (one for each apostle?), selected with some input by Gibson, presents great pop voices in their hour of need. The intent is to mirror the questioning and faith of Jesus' last hours in contemporary song. With artists as deep and dark as Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, and Bob Dylan, it's tempting to draw parallels between the trials of the Christ and the earthly torments of your bohemian artist. In the end, though, these inspirations are as literal as Gibson's film: From...

In the end, though, these inspirations are as literal as Gibson's film: From Ricky Skaggs' bluegrass brimstone "Are You Afraid to Die?" (new to the compilation) to Cranberry Dolores O'Riordan's rendition of "Ave Maria," this is Christian music delivered by some ostensibly secular sources. And also like the film, these performances go for the guts.
Entertainment Weekly - Larry Blumenfeld
Marvelous...These songs evoke compassion, which makes us wonder: Wasn't Mel listening?

    A wonderful companion piece to the film and the original score

    After I saw this magnificent, powerful film, I had to get my hands on the original score. Imagine my delight when I found this collection of music to go along with it! Hand-picked by Mel Gibson himself, this record is a touching, moving, poignant collection of contemporary artists expressing their faith and emotions. Holly Willams (daughter of the famous Hank) delivers a plaintive but powerful "How Can You Refuse Him Now," and Dolores O'Riordan (of The Cranberries fame) has an equally poignant track in her rendition of "Ave Maria." Lee Ryan, a relatively new artist, peforms a passionate piece, "Why Me." For good measure, Bob Dylan, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Elvis are included, making this a diverse collection of inspiring and moving music. Mel Gibson knew what he was doing when making a film of the end of Christ's mortal ministry, and he proved he knows what he's doing again with this collection.
