#2 Favorite Album

2. Of Faith, Power and Glory - VNV Nation

Most people have heard of Yankovic and CCR. Fewer have heard of Oldfield, although he is still somewhat popular. VNV Nation, closely associated with techno and dance, is more of an underground band. Yet I find none of the other “similar” bands to be very appealing. In my mind, there isn't a dud on this particular album, even if the penultimate track is a bit overdone. The first track belongs in a movie trailer someday, and the final track ends the album perfectly.
