Album Review:DC Talk

Artist:DC Talk

Songwriters:Toby McKeehan and Richard Hartline

Genres:Rap/hip-hop, gospel

General thoughts:Every band has to start somewhere. And it seems to me, the first album tends to be either a great example of what they can do that you cherish years later, or something forgettable and kind of embarrassing. This album is the latter. It came out at the end of the 80's, and certainly sounds like it.

One song tells you to listen to some decent Christian rap with DC Talk as your host. And that's exactly what you'll do if you pick up this album.

Track Listing:

1. Heavenbound
Thoughts:It's not too bad.
2. Gah Ta Be
Thoughts:Atrocious spelling aside, this track is mediocre.
3. Final Days
Thoughts:This is about the end of the world. It's not that great.
4. The King (Allelujah)
Thoughts:I'd say this is one of the better song here.
5. Spinnin' Round
Thoughts:This is one of the best tracks, except for the strange parts where it sounds like they're blowing raspberries or something.
6. Voices Praise Him
Thoughts:Eh, it's okay.
7. Time Ta Jam
Thoughts:Not that good.
8. He Loves Me
Thoughts:A track about Jesus's love. Decent.

So what did you think? Did it speak to you? Or would you rather it shut up?
