Jesus Freak, Compact Disc [CD]
Even though it was recorded in the '90s, these songs display "song character and characteristics" as if they were recorded yesterday. All I gotta say is: PRAISE GOD! Thank God that there is awesome music that praises the Lord Jesus and has popular styles to put the praiseworthy lyrics with. It fits the styles of us teens, but how the songs worship and praise God is even greater!!! Praise God!

There's only one reason I didn't give this a 5.0. The production wasn't as good back in 1995. Other than that, I must agree with the last reviewer, this is a must have CD for any Christian music collection. Let's take a look back at what has been considered (by some and rightfully so) as the definitive Christian rock album of all time. Although I have albums I enjoy much more musically, this album has the greatest vision and purpose behind it. You can sense the intense vision behind the vocals of these three guys. If nothing else, get it for the title cut...which is brilliance: opens with an eerie acoustic riff to take a sudden turn into rap with crunchy grunge guitar, then the chorus, then it settles down again, then the rap comes back heavier than before, and before the final chorus screams in...the final guitar solo is almost haunting. But the other songs display such eclectic tastes...and aside from the music: you will NOT find more sincere lyrics in exalting Jesus Christ in CCM. Period. End of discussion. They may not have been the best artist musically to grace CCM...but the DC Talk brothers established a lasting tribute to sincere Christian rock with this album for all time.
