Just because I listened to them due to your love of them, I must say (you probably don't care) dc Talk really did nothing for me. I mean, is a lot of their appeal in the lyricism? I'm not a practicing Christian, and consciously that wasn't the reason I didn't enjoy them, but maybe deeper down, I knew a lot of the lyrics wouldn't apply to me, so I sort of tuned them out subconsciously. What do you believe is their best album, maybe I just listened to the wrong one.

To be fair, I grew up with them, and a lot of what I love about music today can probably be traced in one way or another to something they did, so that's going to make our perceptions of them different. I do think that they're musically solid enough for a new listener to appreciate them, though. The lyricism was a major factor growing up, but I don't automatically get excited every time a song says "Jesus" anymore, lol, so I wouldn't say that's a big draw now; I could see it inhibiting someone else's appreciation, though.

Jesus Freak is their best work. Give singles "Between You and Me," "Colored People," and "Day By Day" a shot and see if they do anything for you. The vocals are what I most appreciate about them today, so listen for that element more than anything else. They worked off of each other really well.

I lost my initial excitement for it a while back but I know that as soon as their single comes out I'll be clicking the play button as fast as possible.

I find it ridiculous that anyone is complaining about anything dealing with this album. they'll put it out when it's ready, that's the bottom line. no one needs to rush anything for anyone.

Obviously I'm stoked though
