The Passion of the Christ: Songs

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
As the controversy surrounding Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ fades into memory, the opportunity for artists to reflect on the film's message arises. Such is the premise behind The Passion of the Christ: Songs, which unites a broad spectrum of artists to create and perform original music inspired by the film. In addition to the usual CCM suspects -- Third Day, Steven Curtis Chapman, and MercyMe open the collection with "I See Love" -- we have an unusual array of artists performing some deeply moving material.

As the controversy surrounding Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ fades into memory, the opportunity for artists to reflect on the film's message arises. Such is the premise behind The Passion of the Christ: Songs, which unites a broad spectrum of artists to create and perform original music inspired by the film. In addition to the usual CCM suspects -- Third Day, Steven Curtis Chapman, and MercyMe open the collection with "I See Love" -- we have an unusual array of artists performing some deeply moving material. Kirk Franklin and Yolanda Adams duet on "How Many Lashes," a track that neatly sums up the disbelief many felt when the brutality Jesus suffered was displayed onscreen. Former Creed frontman Scott Stapp goes solo with a hard-edged "Relearn Love," a track distinguished by its unabashed Christian lyrics and the fact that it's been released to pop and rock radio outlets as a single. Lauryn Hill contributes "The Passion," a rhythmic incantation reaffirming the message of love. Not all of the offerings are hits: Operatic pop star Charlotte Church's performance of "Finding My Own Way" is ambivalent; the song's lack of any emotional resonance is glaring alongside the other more, er, passionate performances. What's nice about Songs is that no one musical genre lays claim to the project: From CCM to country to hip-hop to rock to pop, these songs express the relevance of Christ's Passion for us all. Note: A portion of the CD's proceeds go to the Malibu Foundation for Youth and Families.
All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Unlike the actual soundtrack and the other song collections that were issued as part of the marketing muscle for Mel Gibson's mega-successful Passion of the Christ film, this volume of tunes were allegedly inspired by the cinematic narrative after being commissioned from Icon Productions. As such, this is a mixed bag made up of mostly CCM and contemporary gospel artists. Tracks by Kirk Franklin, Bebe Winans and Lauryn Hill work best, while selections by P.O.D. and MXPX add a wonderfully angular dimension. This is the most awkward volume in the series, however, and it is very uneven.

    OK

    I hoped that this CD would've been better. I thought that the P.O.D. song "Truly Amazing" was a truly amazing song. It was the best song on the soundtrack. I also liked "Empire" by MxPx and Mark Hoppus. The movie was good but the soundtrack was not so good.

    Great Songs

    This CD has some great songs on it. "Truly Amazing" by P.O.D. is an incredible song that brings power to the CD. Kirk Franklin's duet rap song is very good. I also enjoyed the Third Day, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Mercy Me song, "I see love". MxPx featuring Mark Hoppus from Blink182's song, "The Empire" is a great rock song that livens up the record. I recomend this CD if you want to hear some good music. Even though there are some slow songs that do not appeal to me I recomend this record.
