I thought I might perhaps share an occasional review here, or have a look at lyrics and provide a link or two so you can hear the artist/group yourself.
Recently I've been delving into the quirky world of Danielson Famile aka Brother Danielson. Out of all of the quirky Christian music that I have discovered so far, Danielson Famile are definitely at the top of the list.
The group’s frontman is Daniel Smith, who started the group back in the early 90s in Clarksboro, New Jersey, USA with his four siblings and friends. Dan’s peculiar falsetto leading vocals, combined with his unashamed Christian content, an unusual musical style and odd costumes have resulted in an almost cult following. Their style has to be heard and seen to be believed and they have a following in both Christian and non-Christian circles.

I love the fact that Dan Smith has created a style all of his own and continues to develop musically and stylistically while remaining true to himself and his Christian foundation. While Dan does not believe they play "Christian music," their music is certainly based on their own experiences and relationship with God. As Dan said in an interview, he aims to be "less rebellious against God."
Because I am only newly introduced to their music, I am not convinced that I will ever really enjoy it for its sound, but I suppose one should never say "never".

While I have not yet found an analysis of the lyrical content of the songs from Dan Smith himself, I thought I would endeavour to provide my own interpretation of what I feel is the meaning behind one of their songs. I'm not saying that my interpretation is right, and of course I would love to hear your feedback.
