Overview

After building a dedicated following with three albums of Christian hip-hop, dc Talk make a play for crossover success with Jesus Freak. As the title indicates, the group members haven't abandoned their religious base. What they have done is expand their musical palette. Retaining a solid hip-hop foundation, the trio add elements of soul, psychedelic rock, and pop, making Jesus Freak their most ambitious album to date. It also happens to be their best. dc Talk fuse their diverse influences together with style and grace, making the music sound seamless. The lyrics frequently avoid standard cliches, managing to celebrate Christianity without sounding preachy. With its musical diversity and well-crafted lyrics, Jesus Freak is the album that will convince secular listeners that dc Talk is worth a listen.

dc Talk is a good band and in my opinion this is their best CD. The title track and "What If I Stumble?" are the best but none of the songs are bad. Highly recommended for rock and pop fans

These guys should get more credit than they do! they certinaly better than Marilyn Manson..why? because they sing about positive stuff. Manson sings about evil.

I love this album because it has great diversity. Jesus Freak, So Help Me God, Like it, Love it, Need it, and Day by Day provide the rock.What if I Stumble is a slow song with great vocals that talks about how life is being a famous, rockstar and being a christian. What Have We Become is a great song that taiks about how oue society has fallen away from God. In the Light talks about how they want to ge more like God. Colored People talks about to look through their skin into their heart. Mind's Eye talks about how we might not see God physically we can see Him mentally. Between You and Me talks about how you need to confees our sins to God. If you are looking for a great contemporary christian album, you have found it

When I bought this CD, I was expecting some of dc Talk's hip-hop prowess to show through. However, on my first listen, I was slightly disappointed. There was a distinct, almost country flavor throughout this album (with the exception of Jesus Freak). It has grown on me tremendously since then, and I would have to say that as an introduction to dc Talk, or if you are not a fan of hip-hop or rap, this is the way to go. I will follow the path of countless people before me in praising Jesus Freak as a symbol of dc Talk, but that is not the only song worth listening to. What Have We Become is a truly wonderful piece, and I get chills listening to it. All in all, I would definitely recommend this album.

I'm, 13, and I'm pretty sure that this was the first CD I ever owned. My dad bought it for me when I was eight and, of course, being eight, I was a little freaked out by the hard rock but it didn't take me long to grow really attached to this CD. The songs are really a lot of fun to listen to, but the message is also very clear and I really love it. And I personally think number 9 is a riot and that number six is sort of cute and pretty funny. :P

this is the first christian cd i ever heard and i really liked it, it helped me get closer to God in so many ways and i'd like to recommend it as a starting cd for anyone who is interested in GOD

As for music, this album has it all: hip-hop, punk, soul and more. Now, the lyrics stay the same (as before), pretty much. Ain't no preachin', just wise words about being a Christian! P.S. Tracks number 6 and 9 are kind of like jokes, so don't consider them ''songs''. They're fun to listen to anyhow!
