  1. The only one i disagree with is “Raise the Roof” , I loved that cd. i think i should be up higher, and definitely not on the bottom of the list.

      1. Not me, they had a lot of good songs on that one. I agree with that one accapella one being in the bottom 3.

  2. I have heard other people mention “Raise The Roof” as one of the worst Cathedral albums ever and while I don’t think it was their best, it was not bad by any means. I’m sure a lot of groups would love to have songs like “Oh Come Along”, “Still Drinking Water From The Well”, “Never Before and Never Again”, and especially “Don’t Be Afraid” on what was considered their worst album. Maybe it just shows how great the Cathedrals were and how hard it is to find a bad album!
