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.
