MP: Do you think the Christian record industry will ever see itself as a mainstream part of the music world? Or would that have to entail the obviously secular acts vacating the general market?
AB: I think there's probably going to be a lot more middle ground. I think Underoath are probably the model.
MP: How so?
AB: They're unabashedly Christian, but they don't only court Christians.
MP: Why them, and not, say, Switchfoot?
AB: Well, I think the trouble with Switchfoot is exactly why they'll never be U2. They try to relate to two different groups of people at the same time through lyrics that could be taken one way or another. They'll try to have choruses that mean one thing to Christians and another to alt-rock consumers.
