Carolyn ann - I have always viewed Christian music as a desperate attempt to appeal to the masses through borrowing from popular culture. It is so poorly executed in most cases that it is almost like the difference between Van Gogh and painting by numbers – so easy to discern as inauthentic that my child could tell the difference.

Barclay James Harvest (an English group) do some really good songs. But as I got older, I found myself tolerating the religious crap less and less. Considering that their format appears to be secular-Christian-secular-Christian, I decided I'd be better off not listening to BJH. Pity, really.

Wishbone Ash did a religious one, once ("The King Will Come", I think); I can't stand it.

I still find irony in the "Devil's Music" being so eagerly used by Christians. Maybe the devil made them sing it?

I, too, have my Christian favorites. I enjoy mellow chick music. Jennifer Knapp fell off the radar a few years back, but she's really fantastic. I also enjoy a band called The Benjamin Gate. The boyfriend often makes fun of me for enjoying some Christian groups, but to me, anyone who is truly writing from an emotional perspective - the music just comes out better. :)
