When singer Mark Stuart proclaims that "I'm a warrior/With a warrior's heart/And it burns for you" on "Until My Heart Caves In," the title track of Audio Adrenaline's ninth studio release, you have to believe it. If not for the evident raw passion in his voice, Stuart and his band mates are known in their career for blistering live performances and a zeal to rock the house. And that enthusiasm carries over believably well on this album. Thanks to producer Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin, The Wallflowers, Iggy Pop, Macy Gray), Audio A has never sounded better from the studio. Tyler Burkum's guitars are the driving force behind tracks like the opening rave-up "Clap Your Hands" and the title track. Burkum's continuing development as a lead singer (remember the magnificent "Ocean Floor" from Lift?) also offers a more melodic approach with "Starting Over" and "Light of the Sun." Meanwhile, the band's playful spirit from earlier days remains and cannot be contained on the energetic bouncy cover of Otis Redding's "You're Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher." While Until My Heart Caves In may not produce immediate, sure-fire radio hits like the band's previous work, this release admirably offers a greater musical depth and sense of emotion uncaptured until now. Old fans and newcomers will find plenty to like here, so turn up the volume and let Audio A rock your world. --Michael Lyttle

Best Audio A recording in years

"The infectiousness of this CD really took me off-guard. I mean, I'm a loyal Audio A fan who buys all their CDs and have come to expect a certain level of excellence from them in every recording:
This CD took it to a whole new level.
Upon first listen, it was better than I expected. But on repeated listens, it just kept getting better! Each song is so addictively melodic that I practically get a different song from this CD stuck in my head every day. And I've had it for over 3 months now.
I found Worldwide (their previous CD) somewhat disappointing and formulaic. Too many pop/AC singles on it. But this disc delivers the goods, maintaining the difficult balance of melody and rock at all times.
I also want to mention how Tyler's vocals are really a highlight on this CD. I love Mark Stuart's gravelly vocals and always will, so in the past the "Tyler" songs were mostly radio-friendly pop tunes, which IMO were second-rate to the rockin' "Mark" songs. But this time Tyler amps it up vocally, and shows us he can belt out the rock vocals as authentically as Mark can. Way to go! I'm convinced.
I love this disc. Not a bad song on it."

"The boys from AA definitely deliver the goods on this one! I was impressed and floored when I first popped this one into the CD player. Everything on this CD is great...not one bad song on this AA album as usual. "Until My Heart Caves In" will bring you to tears, "Are You Ready For Love?" is great lyrically and musically; "Undefeated" is outstanding; the remake of "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher" is done in AA style and fashion as usual. I don't think the guys can do a bad remake! Fans of AA must get this and even if you're not one this CD will change your mind!
