Man this is an iffy subject for me. I'm bored to death of the whole CCM scene. Someone said it, the best ccm music was back in the late 90's early 2000's for me. Audio Adrenaline, Delirious, and Switchfoot had just started. Everything today sounds so similar, just cookie cutter stuff. I don't listen to ccm much but when I do it's Derek Webb, Phil Wickham, and maybe Hillsong United. Definitely check Wickham and Derek Webb out if you're looking for something a little different.

Hmm, why not just post some of the music you like? :noidea:

I disagree with the cookie cutter comment. The same could be said about most music. I think with the growth of Christian music and the acceptance of the genre we've seen better music.

Can of corn and OsEatALEast have both contributed songs to this thread that I would not consider mainstream but enjoyable. I encourage you to go back through the thread and take a listen.

Finally, the biggest difference for me are the lyrics. Years ago I made a decision and that decision informs everything I do including music. There has to be some essence of worship for me in the words, melody helps, but the words have meaning.

I seriously hear it all the time, my wife listens to k-love, its just not for me. Same chords, same song structure v1, prechorus, chorus 1 time, v2, pc, chorus twice, instrumental that lasts two measures, bridge, chorus twice ending. I play this stuff a lot at my church. Maybe I'm just disenchanted with music in general that all sounds the same. That's for a different subject. I would post some stuff but I don't know how to embed :(

I had never heard any of their stuff before, but this album is pretty darn amazing.

Yeah I like Crowder, I believe he's retired or something of the sort now. Do yourself a favor and buy Delirious' king of fools album Fantastic.

It's easy on youtube. Just find the video you want. Then scroll down to where it says "share". Once you click on it then it will expand and you will see "embed". It will show a code in the box below. Highlight the code in the box. Then right click and choose "cut". Finally when you make your post just right click and hit "paste" and voila instant vid.

Hope this helps!

gallden.....I was big fan of Switchfoot......Audio Adrenaline, too. I was writing CCM reviews for Kaleidoscope Magazine when they both popped on the scene. Switchfoot was truly different. The KM review I wrote for their first CD - "The Legend of Chin" - was picked up by CCM Magazine and a couple other Christian publications.

You were around OH back then, so you might remember this dialogue I had with CindyLuvsBrady. I dug this out of the archives: http://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/archive/index.php?t-74244.html

From that first album:

As I mentioned earlier I've struggled to be interested in the CCM scene lately. But this is one from the last few years that I've really liked.

    • I think  Zach Davies can make a strong case for it, based on his turn around success.
    • While the Orioles continue to make outside hires for various departments, they’re also likely to do some shuffling of personnel in the minors. Nothing is official, but I’ve heard from various people that Single-A Delmarva manager Kyle Moore could join high Single-A Frederick as Ryan Minor’s replacement. Minor league infield coordinator Dave Anderson would be given the managing job with the Shorebirds under this scenario. Delmarva development coach Pat Leyland, son of former major league manager Jim Leyland, might manage one of the Dominican Summer League teams. Triple-A Norfolk hitting coach Butch Davis has been offered a role on Double-A Bowie’s coaching staff. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/09/nunez-hoping-hand-heals-and-hes-available-tonight.html
    • Honestly outside of the truly elite not many SPs go 6+ innings anymore so I'm not sure I'd hold that against him. The telling stat for me is that his era is a 1.5 is better than our next best SP (Bundy). He's literally been a lone diamond in a dumpster fire. 
    • I doubt it, but don’t know who the logical candidates are.
    • Just in time, the AFL season starts today.    As a reminder, this year the O’s players are on the Surprise Saguaros, and include: Rylan Bannon Cody Carroll Dean Kremer  David Lebron  Mason McCoy Alex Wells  With Austin Hays joining once the major league season ends.   Kyle Moore (Delmarva’s manager) is serving as one of the coaches. The regular season runs through October 25.    I’m looking forward to having some more box scores to read!
    • Was Mancini bad enough last year to be in the running for national comeback player of the year?
    • I don't think this was a case of players and coaches overlooking Temple or letting the big wins get to their head, this was a case of a QB who struggled under the first pressure he saw and awful play calling, particularly in the red zone.  The fact that Temple tried to give them the game twice and the awful play calling kept trying to stuff it up the middle, when they have Piggy, McFarland and Leake. Are you telling me that anyone here thinks if they had spread out the defense, put Piggy in shotgun with McFarland and Leake that they don't think they could get a yard with a option play? My biggest concern is that the game calling is always going to be this unimaginative and awful in the red zone when the line is going to be dominated. Good coordinators understand their weakness and strengths and play to their strengths in personnel and don't try the cookie cutter old school approach. I'm also concerns that Jackson will continue to struggle when he pressured. He's not very mobile back there and once he was under pressure his decision making and accuracy dropped off significantly. That's a yellow flag for me. This game was a giant let down because they had an opportunity to go under a Nationally televised game ranked against Penn State but instead, looked like the same old Terp football program that shrinks as soon as it as a chance to shine. I also have concerns that Locksley did not over rule the play calls and also went for that awful two-point conversion. Had they gone for field goal and made it, the Terps could have gone ahead with a field goal instead of being stuffed twice on the goal line in the 4th QTR. It was one game, and people can improve and learn, but what I saw was a coaching staff and quarterback that appeared to be over their heads in their first real test of adversity.  Now if they can come out and play a good close game against Penn State it might heal some things, but only a win would erase this debacle.
