Top 15 albums

    These albums are not in any particular order...
Jessica Gregorius
1 Switchfoot, Learning to Breathe (2000) -
"Musically it's inventive but accessible. Lyrically it's brilliant yet more spiritually satisfying than previous efforts. This is the kind of album that makes you fall in love with a band!"
2 Matthew West, Something To Say (2008) -
"West's third album is anything but a "buffet" of the same old stuff. It's a storybook for every Christian's life."
3 Sanctus Real, Say It Loud (2002) -
"It's very rare for a debut album to be so influential in a thriving industry, but Say It Loud was anything but medicore!"
4 House of Heroes, The End Is Not The End (2008) -
"I waited FOREVER for this album and now that it's here... it exceeds every expectation I ever had for a band. An album that will be underrated no matter how much hype it receives!"
4 Shawn McDonald, Simply Nothing (2004) -
"This debut feels more like a later release because it doesn't give off the impression of being thrown together."
4 Jeremy Camp, Stay (2002) -
"Displays strong musical tips of the hat to the likes of Creed while still establishing a unique vocality. Before this album, worship was more pop oriented. It changed the face of worship."
4 Sixpence None The Richer, Sixpence None The Richer (1997) -
"Took the world by storm with the hit single "Kiss Me," but those who invested in this rare gem discovered that it's more than just a pop album... it's a record with songs that define moments in our lives."
4 Jars of Clay, Much Afraid (1997) -
"In a genre of bible thumpers [as described by non-believers], this record is subtle. It's versatility makes it so memorable: it can be listened to by the strong believer and nonbeliever alike and adored by both!"
4 DC Talk, Jesus Freak (1995) -
" DC stands for "Decent Christian." Any "decent Christian" has listened to this album and perhaps, even been changed by its straightforward lyrics."
4 Deas Vail, All The Houses Look The Same (2007) -
"What's not to love about a record that leaves you pondering even after the disc has repeated numerous times?"
4 The Fray, How To Save A Life (2005) -
"This band came out of nowhere and delivered a remarkable album with tons of airplay on Christian and non-Christian stations alike. I STILL hear "Over My Head" on the radio and it's been over three years since the song was first released!"
4 Shaun Groves, Invitation to Eavesdrop (2001) -
"On this album, Groves displays great interest in those moments where we find ourselves between light and dark, a theme that's captured throughout the entire record. All Christians struggle between light and dark, which makes this record so relatable and noteworthy."
4 Brandon Heath, Don't Get Comfortable (2006) -
"Heath's songwriting is above average. He effortlessly transforms from intimately oriented worship songs like "Our God Reigns" to relational gems like "Simple Man." All of the songs on the album are like hard to get rid of clothes: well, comfortable."
4 Lifehouse, No Name Face (2000) -
"Singer-songwriter Jason Wade embodies Lifehouse's vibe with a spiritual quality that's never heavy-handed, delivering unforgettable vocals with the authority of experience... even though this is just the band's debut album."
