This is the third official album to be issued in conjunction with Mel Gibson's film "The Passion of the Christ." Arriving at the same time as the film's DVD release, "The Passion of the Christ Songs" features 12 new tracks inspired by the film. A musical melting pot of country, pop, gospel and rock, the set offers recordings by Lauryn Hill, Big Dismal, P.O.D., MxPx, Charlotte Church, BeBe Winans and Angie Stone. Former Creed vocalist Scott Stapp has the lead single, "Relearn Love." Top Christian artists Steven Curtis Chapman, Bart Millard (MercyMe) and Mac Powell (Third Day) team for "I See Love." The sole country cut, Brad Paisley and Sara Evans' "New Again," is the most emotionally riveting moment here.—DEP
