I've been watching this one doing the rounds.
Please try to name ONE (I know, there are so many to choose from) CCM praise song that you find unbearable and at least 2-3 reasons why, pointing to specific lyrics if you must.
I orginally posted some thoughts about "When the music fades" by Matt Redman, a song I still find problematic. However, the conversation has moved on somewhat and in response I felt strongly that I should edit this post so that it doesn't contradict my developing view on the subject.
I ended on a couple of positive notes. I still find "Revelations Song" (Kari Jobe) scriptural, powerful and singable. For a rather full on production try here.
And I'm also enjoying Future of Forestry who, to my mind, seem to be able to balance truth, confession and a hint of the prophetic with musical excellence.
I tagged Rach, who wrote a great response!
