Overview

How confident was DreamWorks about the success of their animated Bible epic The Prince of Egypt? So confident that they decided to simultaneously release three soundtracks for the film, each targeted at a different audience. It was an audacious move, since there were few songs in the film -- which means that not only did "the official soundtrack" feature only a handful of tunes from the movie, but there were two companion records that had nothing to do whatsoever with the actual picture, other than existing as tributes. Ironically, those two records turned out to be better and more focused than the original soundtrack. None of the songs on The Prince of Egypt [Inspirational] were used in the film -- they're simply "inspired" by the movie, or the book of Exodus. As it turns out, that isn't a problem, because the material is, by and large, effective. The producers rounded up most of the movers and shakers in contemporary Christian music, from contemporary gospel artists like Take 6, CeCe Winans, and Kirk Franklin to Christian rockers like Jars of Clay and DC Talk. Since it covers so much ground, the collection is a little stylistically uneven, but the music is all strong, which is all that matters. Chances are, the music won't appeal to anyone who isn't already a fan of CCM, but the already converted will likely appreciate this disc quite a bit.
