Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
The successful WOW franchise spotlights gospel in this annual two-CD retrospective of the previous year's top names and songs. Contemporary gospel gets its due on the first disc, which opens with Kirk Franklin's rousing urban-Latin concoction, "Unconditional." Sean "P. Diddy" Combs's foray into the field is represented with "You," a hip-hop gospel number Combs co-wrote and co-produced, which features guest vocalists Faith Evans and Hezekiah Walker, among others.

Elsewhere, the diversity of today's contemporary gospel is represented by the pop-leaning Anointed ("If We Pray"), a soulful version of "Jesus Children of America" from Stevie Wonder with Bebe and Marvin L. Winans, and Beverly Crawford's "Run to the Water." Traditional gospel makes up the second set, and it's a solid collection featuring some of the most notable releases from 2001. The Grammy-nominated Bishop T. D. Jakes and the Potter's House Mass Choir open with the joyful cry "When My Season Comes," setting the stage for powerful performances from Yolanda Adams, Donald Lawrence and the Tri City Singers, and Dottie Peoples. Gospel lovers, say "Amen!"
All Music Guide - Tim A. Smith
The WOW Gospel series of projects has been one of gospel music's top compilation series. Each project, since its debut in 1998, has either reached gold or platinum record status. The 2002 edition should follow in the same footsteps of its predecessors. WOW Gospel 2002 keeps with the successful pattern of featuring the "Top 30 songs by the Top 30 artists" of the past year, and there are some good ones included on this two-CD/cassette set: CeCe Winans, John P. Kee, Richard Smallwood, Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, and Hezekiah Walker, among others. As an added bonus, included is the song "You" from Sean "P-Diddy" Combs' 2002 gospel project, Thank You. The beat-driven track features vocals appearances by Faith Evans, Carl Thomas, Hezekiah Walker, and 112, along with others.

    Exceptional Artists and Musicians

    The compilation is simply awesome. Great work by the artists and musicians. God's work is at hand, and He never fails. I was inspired and deeply moved by gospel's greatest, and so will you. Thanks for stirring up the gift.

    Very disappointing

    I've never even heard of most of these songs, but purchased the cd because I'd mostly been pleased with the WOW Gospel compilations in previous years. Unfortunately, I think the 2002 songs were compiled by someone who does not listen to gospel music. This was more like a gospel music sampler than a ''best of'' cd. I'd ask for my money back if you could return a cd based on lack of satisfaction alone.

    The best yet!!!

    I loved this cd. I read the other listener's review and had to say something about it. True, I didn't recognize many of the songs when I borrowed the CD from a friend. But the more I listened to it, I loved it. I am hooked. WOW Gospel keeps getting better and better. I can't wait for 2003. New artists are especially good. The whole album is good. It's worth the money. Praise God, now I can worship Him more and more everyday with my headphones!
