I'm really happy with Revolution so far! It seems like they made it a lot like The Torch on XM which I like. Got to hear all kindsa stuff I expected and some I did not. Not only have I made it a preset it's #1 for me now!

Me too. Man I was a loyal listener of The Beat. But the Beat just lost a loyal listener. I dont know when Ill be able to turn Revolution off. Its incredibly awesome. I mean you get your best Christian Hard Rock, Rock, and even some Rap(KJ-52, John Reuben). WOW. This is the best Christian mix Ive ever heard.

I spent more time listening to this channel on my 40 minute drive home tonight, and I am excited about this channel. It is an interesing mix of music, and for all of those naysayers that thought that this would be crappy music, I hope they will give it a listen and be objective. There are some very good musical talents on this channel that rival the secular bands imo.

Thank you Sirius for rounding out the Christian music lineup by adding Revolution

It is really pretty good music, I think that most people would be suprised how good it is. I am glad that Sirius added this station.

It's a surprisingly good station. I usually listen to Octane, however I'd say Revolution rocks harder than Octane and without playing the Red Hot Chili Peppers every few songs

If Revolution keeps on like it has been the past few days I will be a regular listener. In fact, it's one of the only stations I've listenend to the past few days (and this coming from a non-Christian!)

The only disappointment I've had is that they play U2 every now and then. I have no idea if they really fit with this genre, however I'd hoped to have found a rock station to escape all Red Hot Chili Peppers, U2, and Ozzy Osbourne. I guess 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

I also didn't realize how many good hard rock bands are Christian bands as well. I really like Anberlin (one of the best bands I've ever heard), Thousand Foot Krutch, Emery, etc.

Two thumbs up!

Yeah big er, Anberlin is incredible. Go buy their albums(I think they have 2). They totally ROCK! And of course Thousand Foot Krutch is one of my favorite bands.

Yeah, I already owned both Anberlin albums before this channel. Knowing they were a Christian band encouraged me to give this channel a shot and I'm glad I did!

I really like their first album, but I just can't stop listening to their second album....completely amazing. I really can't believe this band doesn't get any play on other channels and so far rather limited play even on Revolution.

I think the great thing about alot of these bands is that the music has a message, but it is subtle. Alot of people are turned off just by the term "Christian rock", but I can assure you that 90% of what I've heard of Revolution could just as easily be played on Octane or Hard Attach and you wouldn't know difference.

I'm not trying to harp on the fact that I'm not Christian, but once again just want to encourage people to give this channel a listen whatever you believe in. I think most will be very pleasantly surprised if they give it a fair chance. Good music is good music.

I am wondering if the channel deserves to be in the Rock category along with the forum considering it appeals to both sides of the philosophical spectrum. Most people who wouldn't listen otherwise will get a chance to listen and judge the quality.

I would agree, but some would freak that you are pushing Religion if you mention that it is Christian Rock. Many people would not know the difference if they gave it a listen, very main stream.

I think it is where it should be, though I really had no problem with your post in the Rock Forum saying you felt this station was such good rock that it could be in the rock category.

We do have to make sure though we keep the Religious or Christian type dicussion in this forum. SBS is providing a place for that purpose , so lets make use of it. While we don't want to be offended we dont want to offend others. This way everyone is happy.
