* About Lyrics:
"I generalize music genre's as a whole. Most genre's have their common words that can be found in almost any song of that particular genre. In 90% of Christian music, for example, the lyrics are made up of "God, Jesus, Lord, Holy, Hosanna, Hallelujah", etc, and that drives me crazy. "|: Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna to the Highest :|" How is repeating Hosanna 6 times creative? Also, if these same words are common from one song to the next then how are songs to be different? I know personally I don't enjoy listening to Christian music because of this reason. If I, a believer in Christ, don't enjoy listening to it, why should someone who does not believe enjoy it? Lyrics should be poetical. God gave us creativity, so we should use it in ALL aspects of our music" - Brian
