Many of us have hummed or played air guitar to some of the tracks that are featured on this double compilation CD of worship songs from the CCM favourites. This twofer reissue features occasional originals, like the classic "He Reigns", but more often it's their readings of evergreens like "Great Is Your Faithfulness", and the live recordings of "Lord (I Don't Know)" and "It Is You". The second CD 'Devotion' features well known songs such as "Strong Tower", "God Of Nations", "Blessed Be Your Name" and Hughes' "Name Above All Names". Some Newsboys devotees insist that the Newsboys two worship projects contain far too many covers to match their normal superlative pop rock creations. But if you approach 'Adoration' and 'Devotion' as one of Nashville's most loved bands giving worship to God they work well enough.
