Synopsis

Amazon.com
Who said Christian bands can't rock & roll? One of the best releases in the late '90s, if not the decade, Audio Adrenaline's Bloom is laced with hard-driving grooves and riveting guitar licks. The opening "Secret," "I'm Not the King," and "Memoir" prove the former, while "Never Gonna Be as Big as Jesus," "Good People," and "Walk on Water" demonstrate the latter. And through it all, the band reminds us that they know a good melody when they hear one. The powerful presence of singer Mark Stuart is apparent throughout as he showcases his classic FM-radio rock voice, now an Audio Adrenaline signature. You'll also love the cover of Edgar Winter's "Free Ride," which never sounded so fresh. --Michael Lyttle

I am new to Audio Adrenaline
02/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just got into Audio Adrenaline after being introduced to christian rock a year or so back. I am a christian man who loves Jesus but I also demand my music to talk to my soul. I first was introduced to Third Day and was totally blown away with all of their albums. I really thought that would be the only christian band I would fall for totally. I have to admit that I do like a lot of songs from various christian bands though. But, I have not found a band that compared to Third Day until I bought Bloom. I also bought Underdog and Don't Censor Me the same day and found Bloom to dominate over those. There are several songs on Don't Censor Me that I really like but overall Underdog is better. I think Bloom is the cream of the crop as far as Audio goes. I like nearly every song and I liked it the very first time I put it on for a spin. Never gonna be as big as Jesus just simply rules. I did have more to say but my baby is very upset so gotta go."

"After two funkish sounding albums, Audio Adrenaline released their first great hard rock album Bloom. This album is full of great rockers, famous radio hits, and many other suprise tracks. Secrets: Great way to start out the album. Good rocker w/ good vocals. (9/10)Never Gonna Be As Big As Jesus: One of the hits off the album. Good solid rock song. (9/10)Good People: Very catchy, upbeat song. (8.5/10)Not The King: Awesome rocker. Features great rock vocals. (9.5/10)Walk On Water: A little laid back. Good lyrics, good vocals, good song. (8/10)See Through: My favorite off this album. Awesome hard guitar rift, great chorus, good message, and a great ending. (10/10)Free Ride: Great upbeat cover song. Good guitaring and vocals. (10/10)Man Of God: Good ballad w/ a good chorus and heart-felt vocals. (8/10)Gloryland: Another good rock song. (8/10)Jazz Odyssey: Mildly funny, but no. (4/10)Bag Lady: Decent song. Good lyrics. (8/10)I Hear Jesus Calling (Demo): Good song. Catchy. (8/10)Memoir: Another good rocker. (8/10)Great rock album with a diversity of songs. Overall the best Audio A album, features great guitaring, vocals, and percussion.
Worth the money."
