5. miranda stone
6. over the rhine
7. seeds
8. Christafari
9. vigilantes of love
10. war rocket ajax

07-08-02, 02:15 AM
negotiable number 1 because they're not really considered a Christian band, even though they mostly are: U2
1. Iona
2. Disciple (live, if we're talking about recordings only then they drop down to maybe 10)
3. Phil Keaggy
4. Madison Greene
5. Waterdeep
6. Vigilantes of Love
7. Poor Old Lu
8. Ballydowse
9. Third Day
10. Burlap to Cashmere

honorable mention: Psalters, Sonicflood (all because of one song- Carried Away, and if they had even ONE more song half as awesome as that then they'd be top 10), Dave Crowder, Ceili Rain (pronounced KAY-lee), Moss Eisley, Izibongo, busker kibbutznik, Aradhna, The Crossing, Jennifer Knapp (who would have been about number 5 on my list if she hadn't been trying to be a rock star at Cornerstone when she's really a folk-rock singer/songwriter. If it would have been anything like her performance at the Louisville Billy Graham Crusade then she would easily have been top 10) and everyone who played at the Cornerstone blues night on Wednesday. And Living Sacrifice.

No, I don't like ethnic/folk music at all ;)

Peace, Love, and Jesus Christ,


07-08-02, 09:32 AM
Wow, there's a lof ot VOL fans here. Phil Keaggy is great and I love U2 and agree that they are mostly a Christian band. You guys are listening to some good stuff.

07-08-02, 11:52 AM
urg! i have to add to mine, i have more than 10 after reading what jason said.

how could i have forgotten waterdeep & psalters? &, of course, anguish unsaid & justifide. :biggrin:

& what the heck kind of crowder fan do i call myself?!

07-12-02, 11:59 AM
VoL = Roolz :biggrin:

I saw both Bill Mallonee's solo show and the VoL show at C-stone. It was sweet. I kept going back and forth between Vigilantes and Madison Greene, they were playing on the C-stone Magazine and Gallery stages, respectively.

You should definitely make the trip next year, man. It's worth it.

07-18-02, 05:32 PM
I want to. I'll give it my best shot! Did you see Daniel Amos or Terry Taylor or The Lost Dogs???

07-19-02, 03:04 PM
No... so many shows, so little time...

07-19-02, 04:27 PM
I know what you mean. I bet it's almost impossible to digest it all.

07-22-02, 01:45 PM
Yeah, after the first day I was like "there's no WAY I'll be able to catch everything I want to see" so I took a really relaxed approach to the rest of the week. I pretty much threw out my schedule and spent most of the afternoons at the Wycliffe Maloca tent where they were having ethnic music seminars, and spent a lot of time at the acoustic stage just seeing what was up, didn't know a lot of the names but there was a lot of good stuff there. And I pretty much hung out for the entire 6-hour blues show Wednesday night, and the whole ethnic music night at the Gallery on Thursday. I had a lot of fun and heard a lot of great stuff I would have missed had I stuck to my schedule and run around like an idiot.

07-26-02, 12:56 PM
1. cool hand luke
2. caedmon's call
3. twothirtyeight
4. madison greene
5. bebo norman
6. pedro the lion
7. brandtson

i don't think i could name an 8-10. i don't like any other christian bands/musicians to the extent for them to be deemed favorites. i like a lot of other christian bands, just not to that level.


07-26-02, 04:53 PM
wow, you have excellent taste in music.

also, i love your signature quote... it really really convicted me just now.

07-26-02, 05:05 PM
C.S. Lewis Is brilliant! I'm reading Perelandra right now. That is a good list but I havn't heard of half the bands. Caedmon's Call and Pedro The Lion are both great. What kind of music do the other bands play?

02-25-03, 07:50 PM
My absolute favorite...#1....

2. Christafari
3. Deliverance
4. Third Day
5. Audio Adrenaline
6. Rich Mullins
7. Paul Wilbur
8. Mortal
9. Echoing Green
10. Painted Orange

Im sure I could think of lots of others that would creep their way onto the list but I love all these ones!

02-27-03, 12:00 AM
1. DC talk
2. Stephen Curtis Chapman
3. Jars of Clay
4. creed
5. Sonicflood

Dorf, I think I saw Lost Dogs on the current C-stone list :)

02-28-03, 10:10 AM
Someone else told me that they would be there too. I sure wish I could make it. Are you gonna see them? I'm excited about their new CD that comes out in a couple months.:D

03-11-03, 05:37 PM

You're awsome! ok. Which of her cd's do you like best? or do you just know her name? I want to get one on half.com one of these days.

Edited: You're means You are. Your means something you have.

03-13-03, 12:01 PM
Ahhh...I can't believe I left 38th Parallel off my Top 10. They would definately be in my Top 5.

03-14-03, 02:07 PM
I don't have any of her stuff, my roommate does. I just know I like the sound a lot.

I think her group is Clannad Anam or something like that, but I could be getting my people mixed up.

03-14-03, 04:26 PM
Thats the band of her family, where Enya started, but I know she has some individual stuff as well. One of these days I'll be rich and get all these great cds. :rolleyes:

03-16-03, 01:48 AM
Now I must "take you all to school". The list of the best christian bands is:

1. Black Sabbath-need I say more?
2. Megadeth-God does indeed rock
3. Alice Cooper- the most famous PK in music
4. U2- God bless the Orange Men
5. The Benjamin Gate- go out and get their albums, they rock!
6. Rebecca St. James- the Christian Madonna
7. Jennifer Knapp- alt Folk queen
8. The Dixie Chicks- they rule!
9 Twila Paris- the most gracefull voice around
10 D.C. Talk- rock- not rap!

03-16-03, 12:18 PM
Black Sabbath, Megadeth, and the Dixie Chicks are hardly 'Christian' groups ;) And IMO Alice Cooper qualifies but only from the last few years- about 3 albums or so.


I like a lot of Sabbath's older stuff.
