Music lovers and critics alike have often contended that the most praiseworthy trait any artist can possess is a willingness to try something new. Perhaps this is true because such intrepidity also carries along with it the risk of alienating the performer in question from the better portion of their existing fan base.
Music Inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia (2005)
A companion (or alternate) piece to the original movie soundtrack, the Narnia Inspired By album features eleven newly-written songs from an assortment of popular Christian artists. For the most part, those involved stick to that which they know and do best. Jars of Clayâ€™s â€œWaiting for the World to Fallâ€ is an engagingly wistful slice of harmony-rich modern pop recounting youthful wonder lost. The eminently spirited â€œNew Worldâ€ shows TobyMacâ€™s dexterity with both hip-hop and grunge to be little diminished since his glory days with dc Talk.
