Album Review

Timeless: The Selah Collection is a rarity by Christian music standards. For one, the genre isn't too polite to veterans or legacies of any kind, so you'd be hard-pressed to find comprehensive, handsomely packaged retrospectives celebrating an artist's musical heritage, however big or small that heritage might be. The thing is, Selah have only been around for a decade or so, so they're not quite due for a box set of this caliber. Even more peculiar is the fact that Selah sing inspirational music — a niche of gospel music whose profile has decreased significantly since praise & worship took over airwaves and sales charts at the close of the 1990s. This downturn didn't deter Selah from pressing on and safeguarding their place as the most popular inspirational group in all of CCM, accruing more than a million discs in lifetime sales and earning Dove Award honors for each of their non-holiday, non-special event albums — three albums in all. Timeless collects all three projects and adds a fourth disc of unreleased material, demos, and semi-exclusives — nothing eye-opening, but a thoughtful inclusion nonetheless. Through the duration, Selah remain consistently inspirational, performing reverent, heartfelt classic hymns, church standards, and spirituals like only members Todd Smith, Nicol Sponberg, and Allan Hall can. (Sponberg has since left the group; short-lived replacement Melodie Crittenden shows up in a couple of songs on the bonus disc, while new member Amy Perry shines in a few others.) Their harmonies and methodology are never groundbreaking — just dependable, earnest, and worshipful, just like inspirational music ought to be. The bonus disc and extensive liner notes are the only reasons for Selah diehards to get the whole set — a few selections from the group's likable Christmas album would have certainly added some value to it. Overall, Timeless is not by any means essential, but it's still a nice little homage to Selah, as well as a nice gesture for those who are yet to catch up with the trio's church-friendly repertoire.

Customer Reviews

Unadorned Worship

Selah does greater justice to the classic hymns of Christianity than any other artist(s). If you crave simplicity, this is it. And it's so refreshing. I wish Nicol would not have left. This group could continue to minister for years.

Selah, has wonderful, well-done, inspirational, soulful music.

I have most of these songs from buying the albums seperatly. Selah is a group of high quality muscians making beautiful music for the Lord. Awesome. Mostly mellow with a few high tempo songs thrown in. Totally worth it.

Incomparable

Every time I listen to Selah, with or without Nicol, I am always blown away by the incredible harmonies. What I so love about Selah is how they are able to incorporate Kituba, which is a language from the Congo where they grew up and their parents are missionaries. Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised, but it always amazes me how it doesn't matter which language we sing worship and praise to our Heavenly Father...it just sounds great and you FEEL the passion.

Two-thirds of the CCM vocal trio Selah grew up in Africa, and that influence made itself felt immediately on the group's distinctive 1999 debut album, Be Still My Soul. Formed by siblings Todd and Nicol Smith plus Allan Hall, the group's musical style was specialized thanks to the Smiths' childhood as missionary children in Africa. Signed to Curb Records, Selah found success with their debut, Be Still My Soul, which earned critical praise as well as a Dove...
