I came across these two albums recently.
Hillsong – The White Album and Jesus Culture – Reconstructed.
Can’t believe it seems like these bands have “sold out” or “just followed a trend” instead of creating one!
It seems from these albums that worship music is always BEHIND what the world is doing!
Take a listen here:
1) Hillsong – Oceans
2) Jesus Culture – Your love never fails
I really don’t like number two. Almost hurtful to one’s ears. (haha)
Who knows maybe kids these days… like this music. – Gosh, what happened to the taste of people 😉
Well, everyone to their own. I see what the bands are trying to do. Being RELEVANT and all.
But why always FOLLOW.
It’s like Christianity is always one step behind… does that make sense?
Mumford and Sons offered a sound…
then Chris Tomlin and even Matt Redman decided to copy the style… with songs like “this beating heart” and “lay me down.”
So this is a call, worship song writers, CREATE THE TRENDS.
let other artists, say… we want to do the SOUND that the church are creating!
Does this make sense?
