AllMusic Review by

One in a series of top-selling WOW compilations, WOW WORSHIP YELLOW is an energetic and varied collection of classic praise-and-worship songs performed by both newbies and well-established contemporary Christian artists. The wide stylistic range represented here shows just how much the CCM genre has expanded since its late-'70s soft-rock beginnings. Naturally, pioneers like Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith (who performs Rich Mullins's "Awesome God," perhaps the definitive worship song), provide the usual dose of super-smooth adult contemporary stylings. Modern innovators like Caedmon's Call and Third Day, however, add a dose of alternative and indie rock swagger while Out Of Eden provides a wholesome teen-pop alternative to Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears.
