Brings back some good memories. We had their two first albums when I was a kid (DC Talk and Nu Thang). This was very early 90s. We played those over and over. Their Nu Thang video collection was the only music videos I ever had as a kid so it got a lot of play (when we were allowed to watch videos, that is). I haven't heard that album since those days, but I can still remember some of the lyrics.. "she heard a James Brown sample and thought he was dead".
I saw them live once...I think it was around 1994. I don't remember being very impressed. By that time our church thought DC Talk had gone a bit lukewarm and wishy-washy, so we were a bit turned off. I remember during the concert they never actually presented the gospel to the audience, they just said something vague like "ask a friend if you want to know more about Jesus". I remember thinking they squandered a perfect opportunity to share their testimony and see lost souls saved. We were judgemental fundies lol
After those early DC Talk albums I never got into christian music again, aside from a couple in-house bands in our church. I just never liked the style of mainstream CCM. I did like the odd Hillsong song or two though.
