Christmas Music Warning: Todd Agnew's "Do You See What I See?"

Just a friendly heads up. I bought Todd Agnew's Christmas album "Do You See What I See?" last year around this time, hoping to find some good stuff to use at church. HUGE mistake...biggest music purchasing mistake of my life, in fact. I didn't even make it through one full listen. I rememebr almost throwing up in my mouth.

Agnew's voice makes me want to sit on a holly bush, and the arrangements and music choices were horrible. I literally deleted the entire thing from my computer before I ever listened to it all.

I'm usually not this negative on my blog, but I couldn't live with myself if I sat by and allowed the people I love to make the same mistake I made. I'm sure Todd's a great guy, and we even have used a few of his worship songs in church, but you wouldn't know it from this album.

Thanks for your opinion, Nate. It's refreshing to see an honest opinion of a Christian music product. I have read reviews of other CDs that just dance around the fact that it's not very good, but of course, cannot come right out and say that. I've encountered two of these recently, one by a very well know worship leader and one by one of the biggest bands in CCM right now. I just disagreed with every single review of their latest projects! I bought them expecting something great and was disappointed. Of course, I felt like the only person on the planet who felt this way. Thanks for the review!

No sweat...just in case an Agnew fan finds this post, please know that I'm just expressing my personal opinion. If you are in love with Todd and this album, more power to you.

I agree! Personal opinions are hard to come by. I understand not wanting to hurt anyone feelings but we are all about TRUTH. Different people have different music taste. Bottom line. It's not like we all become cookie cuter christian and all listen to hillsong!! (I am not knocking hillsong.. i love them.. just an example.) But see.. just then, we all feel that we have to explain ourselves and our opinions. God made us... different. I like it! :)

Sorry for the soap box moment!! :-D

I was thinking of getting the new Desperation Band CD today...perhaps I should wait for your review, Nate!
