Jesus Freak, like the 1970s phrase that it's culled from, is an oddity. Who could have ever imagined such a wonderful blend of grunge rock, rap, melodic pop, and funk? "So Help Me God" sets the tone with a wicked guitar riff that draws boundaries for the trio's magic harmonies. "What If I Stumble?" and the vastly underrated "Between You and Me" allow Michael Tait to showcase his silky smooth vocals, while "Jesus Freak" and "Mind's Eye" prove the band can change speeds and rock as hard as anyone. For good measure, they even improve upon Charlie Peacock's "In the Light." One of the best Christian CDs of the '90s. --Michael Lyttle

This is a Christian CD. Their lyrics praise God, their voices tell about the love of Jesus Christ for the world. It's an amazing CD, really, with melodious Alternative and lyrics that actually mean something to the modern Christian. The most well known song from this CD, the title song, is not the best one, as a matter of fact. There are many other tunes and praises that relate the Message with even more power and hope. As for the Christians who, for some strange reason, feel that DC Talk are not true Christians that will "not go to heaven", in fact, call them "heathens", I have to say that it's "Christians" like them who shame this religion. It says in the Bible not to judge others. God is the only judge, and it is not up to man to proclaim who is going to heaven and who is not. I don't pretend to know that DC Talk is truly Christian. But I don't pretend that they aren't. I believe they are and I know that their music does help me in my faith. So please, don't judge- especially when a band like this makes such amazing music.

Being a fan of many musical genres, it seemed only a matter of time before I began listening to Christian rock/rap/r&b/gospel/etc. I was first exposed to Christian artists such as Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman. As my "secular" tastes changed, however, I wanted to explore more of Christian music's offerings. I found early on that most Christian artists who didn't sing gospel music were usually carbon copies of mainstream, secular bands who didn't sing about sex or drugs. Thankfully, the good Lord saw this and brought along groups such as PFR, the Newsboys and DC Talk. These groups sang their own style of music and revealed to us that Christianity isn't always good times at the church social, but an ever-changing lifestyle that brings with it persecution, humility and pain beyond mortal man's imagination.
Perhaps that is why I was originally drawn to "Jesus Freak" and a multitude of albums from other artists who were brave enough to stand up to the preachers and say, "You've got to reach out to people on terms that they understand."
You won't here Twila Paris or Sandi Patti singing about racism or how your personal image can destroy the impressionable minds of others. DC Talk does.
"What If I Stumble" is a question that I see very few so-called Christians asking themselves these days. With no intent to sound preachy or high and mighty, most folks these days who claim to be washed in the blood seem to wash their hands of those people that they should be reaching out to. I used to be a Protestant, but I grew weary of the hypocrites that I saw in the bar on Saturday and then the pew on Sunday. Now a Catholic, I realize that hypocrisy bleeds over into all religious belief systems, because there are just as many hypocritical Catholics as there are Protestants.

dc Talk hit it big with "Free At Last" in 1992. That album was one of the best that had ever been made by any Christian group. Many thought that these three guys would not be able to duplicate that success.
They were wrong.
"Jesus Freak" has sold over 2 million albums since it debuted in 1995, making it one of the best selling Christian albums of all time. In addition, many more people became familiar with the group because of all the airplay many of these songs received on both Christian and secular radio stations. To this day, Christian radio plays more dc Talk songs from this album than all their other albums combined.
dc Talk blended a mix of song styles in "Jesus Freak," from rap, to rock, to grunge, to ballad. Unlike most of their previous effort, all three members exercise their vocal talents throughout the album.
As with the previous albums, "Jesus Freak" does not skimp on the missage or the words used to convey that message. Although there is no direct abstinence message like there was in "Free At Last," the second track, "Colored People," touches on the often controversial issue of skin color with their typical up-frontness.
If you are new to dc Talk, this album is the one to start with. It will give you a great appreciation for the talent of these three guys and will wet your appetitate for the rest of their work.

This album is without a doubt the very best Christian rock cd ever put out. Few people realize this but dc Talk were one of the first band - and certainly the first Christian band - to mix rap with rock. Every song on this cd is a classic but my personal favorites are:
Jesus Freak
Day by Day
In my mind's eye
In the Light
The songs are upbeat and the message is a positive one. If you only buy it one Christian cd, make it this one and you won't be sorry.

No collection of contemporary Christian music is complete without this album, Jesus Freak, dc Talk's 1995 follow-up to Free at Last. Toby McKeehan, Kevin Max Smith, and Michael Tait have created an excellent album, ranking right up there in my top ten favorite albums of all time. Although not quite as good as Supernatural, Jesus Freak is almost its equal and is a very excellent album. My personal favorites include, Colored People, Jesus Freak, Between You and Me, Like it, Love it, Need It, Mind's Eye, and the untitled poem by Kevin Max Smith at the end. Other songs include: So Help Me God, What If I Stumble?, Day by Day, Mrs. Morgan, Jesus Freak Reprise, In the Light, and What Have We Become.
In concluding this review, I say that anyone who enjoys Christian contemporary music will definitely enjoy this album. I highly reccomend it. I also highly reccomend other Christian contemporary music groups and artists, such as: Jars of Clay, Newsboys, The W's, Rhubarb, John Rheuben, and just about all other Christian contemporary music!
