Overview

Christian music with an edge is amply supplied by singer/songwriter Nichole Nordeman on this 1998 release. The musicianship is strong and the lyrics are contemporary without inspiring despair in the listener. The songs "Is It Any Wonder?," "Burnin'," and "River God" are all particularly good. Nordeman's ability on the piano shines really strong on "River God," hitting high octave keys in a manner suggesting water trickling through a stream. Very nice. The only trouble is the accompaniment is sometimes louder than the vocals, making discernment of Nordeman's praise-worthy lyrics difficult. Nevertheless, the album is a good listen and will make an interesting comparison, if not companion, to Julie de Azevedo's Dive Deep.

I saw Nichole Nordeman at Spring Harvest '99 in the UK, and a lot of her songs had us in tears. The lyrics come straight from the heart and have so much truth in them. She is even better live than she is on CD, so if you have a chance to see her...GO!

My sister bought the Wow 1998 cd and I listened to the last song on one of the discs,just as I was about to turn the cd off another song came on. I listened to it and loved it. I found out the artist of that song and bought her cd. The cd is awesome!
