Tait's voice and talent as a front man is superb. saw his solo band at an annual Alton Towers youth event a few years back and he was brilliant leading the band in his solo albums songs and some DC Talk favourites.

I love the first Tait Newsboys album 'Born Again'. Superb modern pop/rock Christian album. The follow up worship album 'God's Not Dead' included Kevin Max on backing and duet vocals on a few tracks and is an excellent pop/rock/worship album if you're ok with blatant Christian worship lyrics (I'm a committed Christian myself so I love it). The next album sounded way too programmed and poppy for my tastes, with all guitars seemingly vanished so I skipped it but I did buy the latest Tait lead Newsboys album that is much more poppy and programmed than the 'Born Again' CD but does have a few more pop/rock tracks and less EDM influence. Enjoyable album but a few fillers in second half of the CD.

One of those bands under Tait where I feel that 'less is more'. They seem to churn out an album every year and the quality standard since 'Born Again' is very mixed. Do 1 quality pop/rock album every 2/3 years and they could be excellent! Certainly a top lead man though for sure.
