ZOEgirl burst onto the American Christian music scene in 2000 and became the biggest selling debut for Sparrow. They have gone on to touch thousands of lives with their dance-tinged teen pop tunes with lyrics that reach to where most teen age girls are. This compilation features tracks from their first three albums, 'ZOEgirl', 'Life' and 'Different Kind Of Free'. The scene is set by the opening track "I Believe" and the techno production gives a quality dance feel to the track. The vocals of Chrissy Conway, Alisa Childers and Kristin Swinford are crystal clear throughout and are never swamped by the effects. There is a definite feeling of progression as the tracks are in chronological order and the quality definitely improves on the later tracks. The standout tracks are "Dismissed" from the album 'Life' and "Inside Out" from 'Different Kind Of Free'.
