Hey ya'll. Sorry I'm a little late. This week has been crazy. I've had state testing at school and on top of that i've been sick. I was also not sure what to post for the letter T. I decided to post my top ten albums. Enjoy!
Top Ten Albums
Okay I'm a little late but here goes.
This is one of the hardest blog post I have ever written. I love music so it was huge task to decide on my favorite top 10.
Liturgy Legacy & A Ragamuffin Band-Rich Mullins
Mullin's "A liturgy, a legacy, and a ragamuffin band" is an incredible
piece of work. Many diverse musical styles and themes run through the
album, always challenging the listener. Every track on this album is
indispensably. It has depth, humanity, vulnerability, and emotion,
and deserves to be ranked among the best albums ever made in my
is my favorite Latin, salsa, funk, gospel group. The lyrics are so well
put together and the rhythms will move your spirit that you'll be
dancing. There's not many Latin gospel group like this to grab your
attention to the beat as well as your heart. Montana is still one of my
favorite songs ever but I also really enjoy Crucified, and Healing.
3. Pink-greatest hits so far
told you I have very eclectic taste in music. I listen to Pink because
of her heart felt honest lyrics and great beat. She's not afraid to wear
her heart on her sleeve. The songs are in chronological order, as all
greatest hits albums should be, so you get an appreciation for the
musical development of the artist and Pink is a really good example of
this. Everything from her music to her lyrics to her vocal attitude has
improved over the years to the point where her new songs at the end of
this album are probably her strongest. Both "Raise Your Glass" and
"F*** Perfect" are really strong songs with a killer vocal track that I
can listen to over and over again.
4. George Strait-Strait out of the Box
am living proof that you can take the girl out of the country but you
can't take the country or country music out of the girl. I love this set
because it has all his works up to until 1995. In my opinion his older
songs are some of his best. I love "If you Ain't Lovin you Aint Living,"
"I Cross My Heart" and "You Look So Good in Love." I love George Strait
because he never strays very far from his country roots.
5. Carolyn Arends-Feel Free
Arends is another oldie but a good. She was a round in the late 90's
and early 2000 but nothing new from her in several years. That doesn't
mean it's not good stuff thought. I read some where she put her career
on hold to start a family. Despite the fact that she doesn't have a
recent album what she has is powerful. Her deep thought provoking
lyrics will keep you thinking about Life, Love, and God. I enjoy music
but I enjoy even more is music that makes me think. And she definitely
does that with songs like "New Year's Day", "Do We Dare" and "Father
Thy Will Be Done"
6. Third Day-Conspiracy # 5
cd really rocks hard and the band really puts out a great message
about God's love for us as well as telling a little bit about God's
plan for our lives. My favorite songs are--Peace, You Make Me Mad, and
My Hope Is You. This one and the cd are lyrically very strong and
factual regarding God's word and therefore very relevant for use in
our in our lives. What a blessing to have such music in our "time"
7. D. C. Talk-Jesus Freak
Talk what can I say. They were my favorite band as a teen and is still
a sentimental favorite. They helped me to see that gospel and hymns
weren't the only type of Christian music out there. They dealt with
topics that Christians teens dealt with and some that we still deal
with as adults. Such as living for Christ, race issues, failure, sex
and everything in between. My favorite DC Talk songs are: "The Hardway"
, "What if I Stumble.", "She that kind of Giirl," "Jesus Freak,"
album does justice to the genius of Ray Charles. Songwriter, Pianist,
and vocalist you could say that Ray Charles did it all. This album pays
tribute to his genius by having all his chart topping songs. His heart
felt lyrics about life and love helped it to become one of my fantasy
Island Favorites. The songs I especially like on the album are "America
the Beautiful", "I've Gota a Woman","Georgia On My Mind", "Busted" and
"Hit the Road Jack."
9. Timeless-The Selah Collection
collection is filled with passionate praise and worship. I also love
how they integrate and arrange praise and worship songs with classic
hymns. This album helps you focus on the Savior. The wonderful harmonies
of the brother and sister in the group and incredible. This is album I
like to listen to on rough days and refocus my mind on Christ. It's
easy to do with wonderful songs such as "You Raise Me Up", "I need the
every hour", and "Before The Throne of God above."
10. Alicia Keys-The Diary of Alicia Keys
Keys is one of my favorite artist of all time. I love her no nonsense,
"Tell it like it is" approach to singing and song writing. Life and
love from a woman's perspective. I also love how she incorporates the
piano into her songs. It's a wonderful pop, R&B album. My favorite
songs are "Diary", "If I Ain't Got You", and "If I Was Your Woman" and
These are my top ten albums of all time. What are yours?
