I don't consider any of Dave's efforts un-challenged. Why does he need to write about something other than what he's inspired to write about? IMO, "challenging" himself to sing about something else would just result in a forced piece of "art," similar to that which we already have plenty of on the radio.
When Dave first started singing about infidelity and murder/blood/guts/etc., I genuinely enjoyed the change of pace. But now it seems that's all he writes about. I agree with Undertow that there is a wide variety of themes/messages in his songs, but it seems like every story takes place in the same setting, with recycled characters. If that's his intention, fine. But I think there's some validity to what Cek is saying about how Bazan often rags on the Christian music industry for pumping out uninspired or formulaic art, while at the same time, one could make an argument that he's done precisely that with his last few albums. Don't get me wrong, overall I still consider myself a fan, but I can't help but roll my eyes sometimes when I hear new songs. Ya catch my cookie?
