More About DC Talk
Since releasing their album Jesus Freak, dc Talk has emerged as a leader in the pursuit of melding rock 'n' roll with provocative questions of faith. Although various rock predecessors have examined spiritual issues--U2, Van Morrison, and Bob Dylan immediately come to mind--dc Talk has taken the notion to new lengths, both in commercial terms and depth of artistic exploration. Numerous Dove Awards, three Grammy Awards, two platinum albums, one gold album, and two gold-certified long-form videos attest to the group's ability to bridge the gap between religious and secular audiences. "We are very open about our Christian faith," says Toby McKeehan, "but when we make our records we want to create a musical experience that anyone can immerse themselves in. One of our goals is to encourage listeners to question themselves and to seek out truth." Authoring the books in the JESUS FREAKS series is the newest venture in an ongoing growth process which began when the three members first met in the mid-1980s while attending college in Virginia. After relocating to Nashville, dc Talk released a series of increasingly ambitious-and successful-albums, beginning with their self-titled 1989 debut; followed by their gold-certified 1990 sophomore album Nu Thang; the platinum-certified 1992 opus Free at Last; 1995's Jesus Freak, a platinum-plus watershed which afforded the group more mainstream success than ever before; and 1998's Supernatural, which reflects the maturity and sophistication of their latest stage of development and growth. They have sold over seven million albums and have won four Grammys. With Jesus Freaks and Jesus Freaks Volume II: Stories of Revolutionaries Who Changed Their World Fearing God, Not Man, they launch into a new media form to challege readers to question their standards of faith and dedication. By giving these stories a platform from which to be heard, they hope to impact the world in a way they never have before. Whether forging strong bonds with concert audiences, expressing their faith in the recording studio, or confronting readers with no-compromise stories of commitment, dc Talk strives to treat their audiences as equals rather than receptors. McKeehan says,"We want to create art that encourages people to think about the things we think about-spiritual issues and truth." Max adds, "Just as we all share the idea of caring and conscience, we also share the hunger to find truth and meaning in life." With Jesus Freaks Volume II, dc Talk once again encourages each of us to set out on our journey to discover our response to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

"Freak Show" as magical as"Supernatural Experience" DVD!! Jul 8, 2004
This wonderful concert/documentary film, simply put, extremely impressive. Despite some grain from some camera angles, an intentional effect, the image is strong with rich colors, and the sound is a strong stereo signal (I'd rather have a great stereo sound than a crummy 5.1 mix). DC Talk is amazing in the studio, and here they proved that they were even more electric on the stage. Check out the trio's great rendition of the Beatles' "Help" that opened the show, followed by their original, crunchy "So Help Me God." Great energy with sweaty, gritty performances that might make many think this is a secular band. DC Talk, at least on their last three records (Free At Last, Jesus Freak and Supernatural) proved they could run with any secular band, and "Welcome To The Freak Show," with its tremendous vocal harmonies, stunning musicianship (bassist Otto Price never fails to deliver the goods) and message that God is our priority all make this video a great thing to experience over and over again. Also included are DC Talk's music videos for "Jesus Freak" (haunting), "Colored People" (touching) and "Between You and Me" (almost a cliffhanger). Pick this DVD up now, along with DC Talk's "Supernatural Experience" DVD which chronicled the band's 1999 tour, which had as many sparks as this 1996 tour did.
