Have to admit, since my previous post, my opinion has changed a little. I see the value in what these guys do now. Unbelievers familiar with the original songs might be more apt to listen to a band whose sound is familiar.
hi peepz this is yo boi tiny skillllzzz well, apologetix is a great band wit X-streamer talent than mosT bandZ do..my point is the apologetix don't expect u 2 kno thu songz..they are reaching out to the lost who always hear this kind of musik. So if they only made it 4 us Christians how would it catch the worlds attention? anyway this is a great album apologetix keep getting better.
This CD is another great hit for the band Apologetix. Their technical performance has improved to new heights, especially considering the exit of their lead guitarist, a founding member of the band. Great work. Some have questioned the value of this band's music, especially from a Christian perspective. As a pastor and a Christian, I did not know the original lyrics to about 75% of the songs on this CD. To me, the songs stand apart from their originals as great songs/Bible lessons with impeccable doctrinal content. The gimmick of parody is not what makes these songs great. A Christian does not need to know the original to appreciate Apologetix's version, but these songs also have the added bonus of catching the attention of those who do know the originals. What a ministry, and what a great CD. P.S. If, as a Christian, you are not challenged by "Land of Delusion" in the area of seperation from the world, then I do not know what would challenge you.
Though the songs are performed very well, I wonder why this band expects that Christians would be familiar with the original, secular songs. Many of the lyrics to the originals are quite ungodly, so it makes me wonder, what is the novelty value of this CD if you don't listen to secular music? Christians are supposed to "love not the world, neither the things of the world." Why do the Apologetix think that Christians should be familiar with the ungodly, current radio hits that they spoof?
