Christian Music: the good and bad

This is why Christian music has a bad rap (WARNING: WATCHING THIS VIDEO COULD CAUSE SERIOUS LAUGHTER AND/OR TRAUMA.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED):

So terrible… as a Christian, I can say: good message, but…poor execution.  Poor lyrics, poor wardrobe, poor acting, poor musicianship, poor facial hair, poor dancing, poor audience.

This is why there is hope:

As one reviewer put it: “‘I’m living to shine on!’ [the singer] proclaims. What that means in this context, I have no clue. But that was seriously awesome.”

I think I just like the prog rock influence and the WWII vibe.

Anyway, I would just like to point out that you shouldn’t write off something just because of one example.

  1. I like Point Of Grace (at least one of their songs, enough to post).http://borepatch.blogspot.com/2009/04/point-of-grace-how-you-live.htmlBut I'm kind of sentimental that way. ;-)

  2. The good stuff is out there–sometimes, unfortunately, it is just harder to find. Then, of course, there is the good stuff that gets overplayed… but that may be a story for another day.

  3. My vote is definitely #2. But for comedic relief, the first vid was hilarious. Kind of like Abba at a tent revival, minus the talent.
