Album of a Generation: Paying Homage to Jesus Freak With 11 Years in the Rearview

In 1991 a blonde-haired Seattle-area misfit named Kurt Cobain changed the landscape of rock music with the opening guitar rift to "Smells Like Teen Spirit," easily the most important rock song of a decade that was only a year old and perhaps among the most essential of all time.


Solo EP (2001)

Fans pore over even their most obscure performances, commonplace remarks, and trivial nuances. Critics believe that the three guys have piggybacked on studio musicians and producers to get where they are as Christian music's first superstars (and wearing that label comfortably). Whichever side of the debate one's on, the choice of each dc talk member to go Solo holds much promise. With three upcoming albums instead of the usual one, the dct message boards gush with excitement--while the calculating commentators await the chance to pick apart which member can't write, sing, etc.

Intermission: The Greatest Hits (2000)

To tide the fans over until their next big thing, Intermission features a quality collection of their best so far, pulling together 15 classic tracks and two new recordings for a non-stop 80 minutes of dc Talk.

Supernatural (1998)

What to expect from a group that has consistently refocused their sound from their rap inception to their 1,245,000-selling Jesus Freak? Obviously something unexpected, new, different, and beyond the limits of today's Christian music ~ something Supernatural. indeed the sound, songs, message, style and poetry presented here will please all dc Talk fans, except those into rap, as the guys have thankfully cut it from this release.

Welcome to the Freak Show (1997)

Over an hour of live dc Talk action! Includes covers of "It's the End of the World as We Know It" and "Help", plus hits "So Help Me God", "Colored People", "In The Light", "Jesus Freak", and many more.

Jesus Freak (1995)

Toby McKeehan, Michael Tait, and Kevin Max finally "unrapped" themselves back in 1995 when they released what would soon be the best known album in the Christian music industry, Jesus Freak. Five years later, the album has been certified a platinum status and is quickly on its way to double platinum. To the delight of most fans, dc Talk was able to change their sound without changing their style throughout the 13 tracks on this release, as the early rap-core title cut proves.

Free at Last (1992)

Pulling away from their rap roots, Free at Last tones down the rap a bit, and goes for better music. One could justly say that it was the turning point in dc Talk's career: a must for any and every fan.

Nu Thang (1990)

Take a moment and imagine you're in the early 90's. Better yet, just take a look at the Nu Thang CD cover. You're entering an age of brightly colored clothing, of puffy hair, of men wearing fanny-packs over sweatshirts... well, ok, maybe that's just Toby Mac. At any rate, Nu Thang is from a different period of musical history. As such, it really only appeals to two groups of people: fans of the corny, synthesized sound of early 90's pop or hardcore DC Talk fans like yours truly.

DC Talk (1989)

dc Talk's debut recording features a heavy rap influence--fans can see where tobymac's rap roots were formed.
