For over a decade, Christian music phenomenon Jaci Velasquez has been singing her way to fans hearts all across the globe. With two Gold albums, a Platinum album, numerous Latin Grammy and Dove Award Nominations and 16 #1 hits, you might ask if her newest Greatest Hits album serves up the "best" with only one disc, or should it have had two?
Opening with the moving ballad, "On My Knees," you can't help but worship God in this beautiful song. The Spanish flavored "Un Lugar Celestial" and the soft "Imagine Me Without You," lead into the upbeat and fun "Every Time I Fall." The next track is the beautiful "God So Loved," which is based off of the Bible verse John 3:16.
While her first three albums are represented here with around three to five songs each, her latest albums, Unspoken and Beauty Has Grace are distastefully shunned, with only one included from each record. Where are Unspoken's biggest hits like "You're My God" and "Jesus Is" or Beauty Has Grace's hits "Tonight" and "With All My Soul?" That's probably one of the worst aspects of the album: an extreme lack of hits. Where are songs like "Flower In the Rain" or "Glory" or "Crystal Clear?"
The album also fails to show off any new songs. Sure, there's some compilation contributions like "I Will Rest In You" and "God Loves You," but no new exclusive material is present here.
While On My Knees definitely shows off some of Jaci's biggest hits and fan favorites, it also fails to include some of her best known songs. This project should have been, hands down, a two-disc collection. However, I guess you can't please everyone.JFH Reader Review: Review date: 12/9/07, written by Josiah Coulter for Jesusfreakhideout.com
