Idol Chatter

The New York Times published a really interesting top ten list by Daniel Radosh on his “Paper Cuts” blog.
Radosh, a self-proclaimed secular Jew gives a smart, spot-on assessment of Christian music by listing his top ten favorite Christian songs that don’t “reduce all expressions of faith to crass evangelism, anodyne praise, or crypto-romance.” These are songs he feels everyone can learn from or appreciate–regardless of your own particular religious inclination. The list includes artists such as Larry Norman, Bob Dylan, Over The Rhine, Sixpence None the Richer and a couple of artists I haven’t ever heard of! To stump someone who used to make a living covering Christian music, well, that’s impressive.
Mr. Radosh, I promise I will be checking these new artists out on iTunes immediately!
