Meh

August 28, 2008

My relationship with “christian rock” has always been shaky at best so perhaps I’m not the best person to comment on this product. Maybe Kelly could better give his opinion. With that being said, this thing makes me out and out sad. And I quote:

Onscreen lyrics reflect Christian values. Vocalists can sing their hearts out as their friends play the guitar.

Sigh. And I don’t see *any* Sandi Patty.

    Hank Hill said it best:
    “Can’t you see you’re not making Christianity better, you’re just making rock n’ roll worse.”

    Wait… so are these Christian songs or are they well known rock songs where the lyrics are changed to Christian-themes? Good lord, that could be fun.

    I do want to add a couple more comments, but I’m a bit exhausted from a fucking long day at work, so maybe tomorrow. šŸ™‚

    Why should the Devil get all the good video games?

    I also enjoyed “if you can’t keep up, the artists will take a break and stop the music.” Just like church.

    CRock is just like all Rock. If it’s good, it’s good and if it isn’t then don’t buy it.

    Some stuffs been good. I’d even say that Sufjan Stevens is one of the best artists out there right now. But I’m sure he doesn’t get alot of play on AOR-throwback KJSUS or some such.

    It seems to be that CRock isn’t the problem. It’s the CRock labels. After all, U2 is CRock after a fashion, even got sold in the Bible Book store when I was a kid.

    Just making the waters muddy.

    Mr. Dickens, please answer a simple question: How is Christian Rock different than mainstream rock? The answer isn’t very muddy (in my opinion).
