14 Songs, 55 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After three well-received gospel-rap albums, DC Talk released Jesus Freak—the one that made it seem like they could do anything. They redeemed a song from Godspell (“Day By Day”), celebrated diversity over racial bias (“Colored People”), delved into relationships via soulful pop (“Between You and Me”), and, on the title track, melded grunge to rap while creating an enduring battle cry for the faithful. Decades later, the album’s everyman spirituality and adventurous rock still sound fresh.
