Until My Heart Caves InAudio Adrenaline

The power packed hard rocking sound that is Audio Adrenaline is on full display with this CD. Opening up with the high tempo "Clap Your Hands" Audio A sends the party right to your car speakers. With a thumping drum beat and a fierce strumming of the electric guitar they sing of clapping their hands to "the promise land" and how the promise of God can keep us. Next the group moves on to the title track "Until My Heart Caves In" and gives out the message of their desire to sing of God until the very end. The opening guitar sounds like the beginning of the old rock tune "Jessie's Girl", by Rick Springsteen. I know that is taking many of you way back...but then the lush sounds of the synthesizers and the hard beat of the drums come on the scene and you know that this is pure rock funk by Audio A that's playing on your CD player. This is a great track; I just wished it lasted longer. "Undefeated" and the remake of the classic of "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher" are other notable tracks on this project. Produced by Audio A, Jay Joyce and Christopher Stevens this recording is another stellar performance by a group that gets better with each project. Check out Audio Adrenaline at www.audioa.com

A NehoSoul Christmas Bryan Duncan

The "Blue Eyed Soul Man" Bryan Duncan strikes again on this recording as he serves up some of the best R&B flavored Christmas tunes around. Starting with the home grown groove of "Christmas Comes But Once A Year" Bryan fuses soul and blues with a funky style that is all his own. This foot tapping track with the wonderful keyboard solo by Phil Curry will make mom and pop roll back the chairs and "cut a rug" for sure. The classic "Silent Night" is given a fresh update by Duncan who makes this standard shine with his jazzy delivery. The pop infested "This Christmas" is a free-flowing tune and allows the versatility of Duncan to be pushed to the forefront. The funky "Winter Wonderland" and the smooth and surprisingly up-tempo jazzed "Little Drummer Boy" are also worthy tunes on the CD. A great CD to add to your Christmas music collection.

TimelessThe Katinas

Packaging a collection of timeless classics and presenting them in an updated, modern and worthy package is what the Katinas have accomplished on this recording. Including songs written by the likes of Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Andre Crouch and others the five brothers take listeners through a journey of good Christian music. With their harmonious voices that have become legendary over the course of their career, the Katinas spin their velvet vocals over tunes such as the Andre Crouch classic "My Tribute" with grace and passion. The ballad "Arms of Love" by Amy Grant is delivered with heart-felt fullness and beauty. Other tunes of note are "I'm Forgiven" and the mainstream tune by Mike and the Mechanics "Living Years" whose theme focuses on forgiveness. Developing a new appreciation for these classic songs is what the Katinas' "Timeless" will do for listeners all over the world. Good job guys. Read about the Katinas at www.thekatinas.com
