I'm so excited for Switchfoot's "Vice Verses" album which comes out later this year on September 27th. I'm going to submit that press release now.

Hmmm...really? I thought it was interesting how Weiss used animal imagery, and used it to tell biblical tales metaphorically. That album actually gets categorized by many mwY fans as their worst, but to be perfectly honest, I didn't get into mwY until It's All Crazy.

Thoughts on Allah Allah Allah?

Not my favorite track on the album, but I enjoy its tongue-and-cheek flow.

Welcome bro! How's it going?

Nice avatar by the way. I've been listening to a lot of 90's alternative lately; Our Lady Peace is good.

Right. I was referring more to the lyrical content - the use of the name Allah when speaking of God.

I believe the Arabic translation of "Allah" is "God". I could be wrong. I don't have a problem with it. You?

Honestly, no problems here. I just know the use of Allah was controversial to some Christians that I've talked to.

Same here, but I don't really understand the issue. Weiss is really reverent in that song. I mean, it's not like he's saying he believes in the Islamic god or something. I believe he even mentions Jesus as savior in some metaphrorical fashion.

Think this is the first time I have ever been in the 'top posters' of a thread.
Somehow I managed to get onto the top of the Jokes thread once.

My friend recommended me the new Josh Garrels album. I had never heard of him but I am loving his album. It's currently available for free on his Bandcamp page. Seriously check it out. It's a really chilled album. Acoustic folky sound, quite accessible, good melodies in places. Just sounds really great! Stream it, download it, be blessed!

Anyone else heard of him before? Apparently he's quite known and has released quite a few albums in the past.

Weiss is a muslim.
