Rocking Romans 2008 Best of New Catholic Music
Reviewed by Fr. Kent O’Connor
To get an idea of what’s going on in today’s Catholic rock music, Rocking Romans 2008 Best of New Catholic Music, is a great place to turn. Although missing perhaps some of the biggest acts in Catholic music, this compilation CD features amazing artists, such as Sean Clive, Joel Stein, Last Day, and Critical Mass. I think that anyone who enjoys modern rock would find at least one real "keeper" on Rocking Romans 2008 and probably more. I have my favorites, but I think compilations are more of a "to each his own" type of thing. It is a strong collection with some more familiar artists and some less familiar ones. Hopefully, Rocking Romans 2008 will introduce some of these great musicians to a wider audience.
