I’ve heard Audio Adrenaline a few times on the radio and always liked them. Towards the end of April I got to see them in concert. Initially, I was under the impression that the lead singer was a former DC Talk member; turns out that is the Newsboys. Audio Adrenaline’s singer suspiciously looked about my age. As I began listening to this album I started to criticize the band because the singer sounded so much like the singer for Stellar Kart. Eventually, I realized it was the singer of Stellar Kart. Adam Agee is now doing double time in Stellar Kart and Audio Adrenaline. I, being a Stellar Kart fan, took a selfie with this guy and never recognized him! By the way, if taking selfies was a spiritual gift, Adam would have some powerful anointing. He got the whole band, the other two people I was with, and me all in one shot. It only took him a few seconds: I’m impressed!
From the lips of those saved a redemption song will raise with a sound so full it cracks the sky.
Sound of the Saints is a great album. I think the live version of the songs were better and less poppy, but that’s what this band chooses to play, and they are great at it. Few things compare to 4,000 people raising their hands and screaming the words to the radio single “Love Was Stronger.” This album will help get people moving into more active, energetic worship. It sure fanned the flames in my soul.
Every single heartbeat means there’s a God that’s in control.
Stand out tracks for me are “Love was Stronger,” “Miracles,” and “World Changers.” These tracks made me get up, jump around, and yell gibberish because I didn’t know the lyrics yet. “Love Was Stronger” is about the heart of someone newly born again and understanding who you were and what you did was no match for the power of God’s love. “Miracles” is all about faith and standing up for that faith against the world and all the things it says in opposition to it. Last, but not least, “World Changers.” This song is more or less The Great Commission put into Adam Agee’s words. It is his challenge to the believer to “rise up and make You (Jesus) known.”
I was a child of wrath. An enemy of the King of Peace. But love was stronger!
Though a few of these songs sound like they could have been on the Stellar Kart album, Sound of the Saints was an excellent album. It is a great way to kick off summer and yell every word at the top of your lungs on a hot summer day. I recommend this album to anyone who needs some music to give them a spiritual boost and a spark of passion.
Come in power. Come and Reign. Sanctify and stir Your saints.
