We Recommend - Audio Adrenaline, 'LIFT'

Late last week, while my iTunes library was on shuffle, a selection from Audio Adrenaline's catalog came on, and it caused me to stop the random play and just listen to one Audio A album after another. When I got to the pop/rock band's more mature 2001 effort, LIFT, I was reminded not only of why this band is one of my top favorites, but of what worship music seems to have strayed from. Even back in 2001, LIFT was a refreshing worship experience. The record isn't specifically a "worship album" by definition, and there are some weaker moments (the hit "Beautiful" may actually be my least favorite track on the record), but the album contains my favorite worship song -- and what may be my favorite song of all-time -- "Tremble." The heart of worship and reference is here on LIFT with a wonderful pop/rock/alternative mixture that separates the album from other "worship" projects and offers worship anthems that aren't mundane, hopelessly repetitive, or commonplace. In addition to "Tremble," there are a couple other mellow, reverent tracks like "This Is Everything" and "Speak To Me," while the beautiful "Glory" gives us a glimpse at what worshipping our Father some day in Heaven might be like. I just love the heart on this record. I wish there were more worship albums that sounded and felt like this one.
