Throwback Thursday- part 1

March 31, 2011

We’re introducing a new weekly feature here at American Jesus called Throwback Thursdays.  Each thursday we will dig deep into the vaults of Christian Music and revisit their “glory.”

 

Our first entry?  “I Luv Rap Music,” by DC Talk.  It’s still amazing to consider the diversity that can be seen across the arc of their career.  I mean, how is the group in the video below the same group who released “Jesus Freak” just a few years later?

    dc Talk *did* have quite a varied career. Kevin Max (certainly the most interesting one of the group) has gone on to be even more varied.

    Compare:
    His first album (dark, melancholy, Middle Eastern sound): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7r2NeY54bE
    with his second album (pleasant upbeat pop): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qsFZSGU-yUs
    with his third album (spirituals and old folk songs): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qukvnYebOVk
    with his latest (very electronic): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nItNg3UroQ8

      I completely agree- and my comments about the diversity of their music were sincere.

      Off the top of my head, I can’t think of a secular band who have had ridiculously successful albums in such different genres
