That's a couple of favorites from almost every album.  Except for downloads, some of these albums are going to be hard to find.  Some have been reissued by Grrr Records and others by Retroactive.  Hunt them down if you can.

Rez (or Resurrection Band) are different lyrically than a lot of bands.  They do sing about Jesus but they also sing about social issues that we need to be aware of like homelessness, hunger, abuse, etc.  They did great songs storying about people they've meet through ministry throughout the years.  The point was to highlight their struggles and pain so that we could relate.  The songs about Jesus then point us to the source of help.

I would suggest them to listen to their box-set Music To Raise The Dead 1972-1998

Some that haven't been mentioned 

First Degree Apathy
The Chair
Shadows
Child of the Blues
Light


As long as you stay away from new wave Rez, it's hard to go wrong.

Several of their early albums have some synth being used but done tastefully and in a way that blends nicely with their bluesy sound.  The album with the most new wave sound would be "Hostage" and the only studio album of theirs that I don't own.

Hostage did have some really good songs on it though. Defective Youth, Attention, Tears In The Rain and Crimes were great. Unfortunately the synth driven songs messed the album up. On Bootleg Live, they had a song called Playground that had Wendy rapping in it. That was just awful.

The one produced by Ty Tabor, "Lament" is pretty good too. (IMHO)

"Ampendectomy" is a cool take on some of the older tunes.

I highly recommend Glenn Kaiser Band as well.

I have Ampendectomy on tape, pretty good release. I love it just for Lovespeak, which is an awesome tune.
