Here it is: the album that helped launch a genre. Keith Green's For Him Who Has Ears to Hear helped solidly establish CCM as a movement with some staying power. Musically, the album fits somewhere between Cat Stevens and the Carpenters in the pantheon of '70s pop. Lyrically, Green doesn't pull any punches. He's frank about his love for God and his disdain for evil. There are several gems on this album, including "You Put This Love in My Heart," "He'll Take Care of the Rest," and his cover of Anne Herring's "Easter Song." Although the sound is a bit dated, its status as a classic is unquestionable.
