DCB (David Crowder Band): Remedy
So, based on the overwhelming positive reviews of the newest release from the David Crowder Band, I went against my better judgment and spent the $10 on iTunes to download. I have always just liked DCB, only love a few of his songs but never a full or even majority of any of his albums...I admit they're good in concert, but I've still never understood the hype.
I would normally give a track by track review of the album, but because it was so underwhelming (again, compared with the comments I'd read, not comapred with my previous experience) that it really wouldn't be worth my time. I readily admit that part of my bias is due to the fact that I can use very little DCB material at our church for worship or other stuff. I will also admit that DCB is incredibly creative and talented musically and lyrically, their willingness to incorporate deeper theology than the norm is to be applauded, and I have extreme DC hair envy...it's just not my favorite style of music.
So, I'm sorry DCB...continue doing what you're doing because you've obviously got a huge following...and I certainly won't easily passup an opportunity to attend another of your concerts. I just won't be "la-la-la-ing" with my iPod anytime soon...
(my feelings for DCB always feel really weird because I know because of my age, musical tastes, culture, beliefs, etc. I should be the stereotypical DCB fan...)
