Share your favorite Christian music. I prefer the classical Hymns to the more emotional seeker-sensitive stuff today.
I don’t listen to a whole lot of music so I’m not really familiar with any traditional Christian music. I’ve always thought it was mostly the devil’s arena, at least most modern music. Classical stuff and orchestra has a lot of value. There’s also some fun secular bands but I don’t take any of that seriously.
When I was a kid my parents bought me a bunch of DC Talk albums. When I think about that whole Christian Rock/rap genre it makes me kind of angry, as I think it was a misadventure in an effort to compete in a style of music in which it clearly didn’t belong. Rock and rap music are mostly an abuse of instruments and vocals, mostly. Trying to make it Christian was just fruity. It’s sort of like trying to create a “Christian” porno.
Some of their stuff wasn’t bad though. The musicians themselves are talented, even if the genre is misdirected. Maybe it left a positive mark, as I still have good memories of a few songs. Definitely a strong 90’s vibe.
This wrinkled my brain. I'm surprised he delved as deep as he did, even if it was transitory. Seems like he's back to the syncretic style of the stereotypical artist. The wider the net, the larger the potential fanbase.I recently learned Bob Dylan had a three-album Christian period
