Needham said "When I listen to him it's cool because I feel the Lord has given us the same spirit in what we're singing about. If music—especially Christian music—doesn't either cause me to repent or worship, then I don't know why I'm listening to it. And I think that's why I like Keith Green so much. He didn't sugarcoat things."
