Audio Adrenaline "Sound Of The Saints" by Jon Ownbey (cmaddict.com) on 2015-05-04 18:42:16
Audio Adrenaline resurrects itself once again with its newest release Sound of the Saints. This album explodes with a new sound and feel that delivers. One has to ask how many times a band can be torn apart and rebuilt before the only thing left is the name. If you walk into this listening experience and leave any expectations of hearing the old Audio Adrenaline then you will not be disappointed.
This album's pop rock sound is light-hearted and varies enough throughout the album to keep me listening. The music is well crafted and flows well but the albums real strength is the vocals. Adam Agee from Stellar Kart steps in as the new frontman and makes for an enjoyable listening experience.
The lyrics for the album are catchy and positive with a clear message of God's redemptive power. The problem as a listener though is I didn't feel connected to the band through the lyrics. This helped create the perception that this was an industry production.
Audio Adrenaline fans will be disappointed if they expect an album that sounds and feels like their previous albums. It's hard to get past the feeling that the only reason the band was called Audio Adrenaline was just to sell records. While the album is good, it's hard to get behind the artists behind the album. I have no doubt that this will start a new generation of Audio Adrenaline fans but they will have nothing in common with those who started with the group. The artists in this album definitely have the talent to stand on their own and would have benefited from a fresh start instead of fighting the stigma and listener perceptions of how they should have sounded.

The popular radio host was on a rampage, vehemently damning God. He crowned the diatribe by flinging a challenge at God to strike him down at that very moment. He smugly interpreted heaven's silence as proof that there is no God. But what was really happening?
