Danny and boys have rare talent...Is history fair?, subject to debate!...ever there was ever any sacred act that shunned the so-prevailing "laissez faire" attitude and shallow records common with many fellows in the CCM industry, it's JC...
It's the most versatile spiritual band I know,...their multi-platinum self-titleddebut album's a thing of beauty, and they never did took their fans 4 granted...this is even evident on their latest masterpiece "Inland"...Will they make it...I so love'em don't want 2 answer @t!

Jo, besides the fact that the Hall will never induct a Christian rock act, I would point you to DC Talk, much more versatile. Even though the trio have gone their own ways in solo careers, their stuff together is brilliant, diverse, as well as a combination of social relevance and spiritual grounding.

Phillip, I got a DC Talk greatest hits album a few months ago. Had no idea they were 'christian'. Excellent band, glad you mentioned them. I think Switchfoot is another 'christian' act that I have great respect for.

Paul, if I remember correctly, the Greatest Hits CD you got is mostly 90's alternative rock style, right? It's mostly a combination of their last two full albums as a group, "Jesus Freak", and "Supernatural." Supernatural is actually the least favorite of mine of their five albums. If you really want to see why DC Talk should get some serious consideration, and to get a true understanding of their diversity, you need to listen to their second and third albums, "Nu Thang," and "Free At Last." Especially "Free At Last"... the title track is absolutely mind-blowing.

Phillip, thank you for the recommend. Will check those albums out. I do like '90's alternayive rock style' though :-)

You'll definitely love the full album "Jesus Freak" then. I did, and I'm not a huge fan of the '90s alternative rock sound. Supernatural has some good cuts too, but overall, I'd rather listen to their debut eponymous album, which has a very late '80s sound... it hasn't aged all that well. Free At Last is still my fav. album from them, followed by a somewhat dated-sounding, but holy-cow-the-second-half-of-the-album-is-why-you-still-listen-to-it Nu Thang, then Jesus Freak.

Philip...Tait, TobyMac and that o'er blue-eyed guy were good and were probably ''bigger'', but Jars of Clay take it musically!
