What kind? Where do I start? I have more than 8,000 tracks in my collection. All christian but all different styles, from bluegrass gospel and southern gospel, through black choir and modern college choirs, right on up to christian rock and christian rap.
Thing is, I don't listen to the style so much as the spirit. So I find a lot that blesses me. I have determined that about 70% of christian music - in all styles - is made by people who just want to make a buck, make the next album, get some more money. But that 30% that is truly anointed is worth the search.
Though I do like Chris Tomlin. My music is metal (I can see you all cringing now lol). Bands like becoming the archetype, demon hunter and for tomorrow. Now most of you shouldn't look these up cause it's pretty heavy. This music speaks to me. Blunt straight forward no holds barred truth. You name it they sing about it....Sin, salvation and Jesus as our Lord and savior!
I've always been a fan of rock music, so I love bands like Skillet and Nine Lashes, but for the past year now my buddy has gotten me into metal so I love listening to bands like For Today, Fit For A King, Oh Sleeper, etc.
I enjoy many musical style as in the secular as in the christian scene.
But the artist that I evaluate had been important for me and blessed my heart are above all Stryper (Hard Rock/Metal all of you know them), Theocracy (Power Metal), Antestor (Unblack Metal), the legend of Praise & Worship, Hillsong, (I hope that I haven't forgotten anyone) and I love also the old church hymns with this above all.

Although I'm not Catholic, I like a lot also the Gregorian Chants. When they don't have as topic a wrong, doctrinally speaking, subject, I think, they're very nice.

We tried this, but we failed
we know this but we're too blind to see (1Cor.2:14) (2Tim.3:7)
that there is freedom within me (Col.1:27) (Ro.6:4) .
your life brought light for all to see (Jon.12:46) (Mrk.4:11)
When I was lost so I, so I thought
that I was searching all alone
like I was lost so I didn't know (Gal.4:1)
what I was keeping all along (Col.1:27) (Ro.8:11)
I knew from the moment my mistakes all stood out
your light's my only safety (Ro.10:3-13)
oh all the times that I didn't look your way (Mat.13:22)
look what I was missing lord you fill in every space

Revived us, we will sing (Eph.2:4-6)
restored us, you are the source to breath (Jon.4:14)
ignite us to a need to bury everything I never want to be (Ro.8:13-14)
The music that bless my heart and makes me feel so good is The Giads a very goid group a family bless them all. I wish so much I could see them again performing even though they don't know me I feel like I know them and I would do anything for my friends the Giads cause I live them all and I am proud to call them my friends

[SUP]20 [/SUP] teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Music is definitely one of the tools the LORD is using to GET THE JOB DONE!
