I was looking though JesusFreakHideout website and saw FF5's picture. I have since gotten their album. I couldn't really see much 'christian' content, but I dig the music. D-I-E-4-Y-O-U is my favourite. I think it's a great sound to workout hard to. Can someone knowledgable enlighten me to what the story is for Family Force 5? Have other albums been more 'christiany'?
