"Good CCM videos are a rarity and I'm usually disappointed by those I do see. This collection features nine artists, of which none would be out of their depth on MTV. But, they do, generally, lack imagination. Jaci Velasquez sings about Heaven, in a desert, while Audio Adrenaline make the most of an elevator and roof top. Carman's 'R.I.O.T.' video is the pick of the bunch. Set in a factory, where workers are shackled and ruled by an evil boss, it tells of breaking free, with good triumphing over evil. Its clever setting, dance routines, and brilliant tune ensure that your eyes are glued to the screen. Michael W Smith's "Cry For Love" does have some stunning effects but this film is now over two years old and has lost its freshness. There's quite a variation in the styles, including the wacky- Newsboys- in space suits, and grunge band, Third Day, debuting well with "Consuming Fire". 'WOW 1997' will open a few people's eyes but 'Quite Good 1997' would be a more apt title!
