Overview

The Grammy-nominated Lift showcased a thoughtful Audio Adrenaline whose Euro-styled rock 'n' roll was often reminiscent of U2. With Worldwide, Audio Adrenaline have done a neat about-face, showing fans an aggressive, edgy sound that's fueled by these songs' missionary message. Hard-driving guitars and fist-pumping vocals characterize Worldwide, especially on energetic, infectious numbers such as the title track, "Church Punks," and "Dirty." In a variety of hooky, radio-ready songs, Worldwide exhorts listeners to express their faith in actions, and get active in their communities. It's a powerful call to arms that resonates across musical lines -- three tender ballads distinguish themselves among all the hammering guitars -- making this collection both fresh and fun. Music-with-a-message never sounded so good.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven Douglas Losey
In a career spanning 12 years, Audio Adrenaline has very little to prove. Still, with its eighth studio release, entitled Worldwide, the band forges forward with a wall of sound that merges the band's pop sensibilities with all-out edgy modern rock. Produced by rock veteran Charlie Peacock, cuts like the title track, "Pour Your Love Down," and "Dirty" are guitar gems. Tyler Burkum regains that signature distorted tone that he's had over the years, as both tunes echo the brilliance of some of the band's past creations. Audio Adrenaline's ability to weave crafty, reverent lyrics with modern power ballads is evidenced on tunes like "Pierced" and the worshipful radio remix of the band's heartfelt "Ocean Floor." Somewhere between the ballads and the harder guitar-driven cuts are tunes like the acoustic-laced "Strong" and the vocally pleasing "Leaving Ninety-Nine," which come off as very listenable. What Worldwide offers is a band that has reached a creative peak with the opus. The disc has an incredible live feel, with Mark Stuart's vocals never sounding better. Audio Adrenaline marches through 11 tracks that are lined in silver and gold, evidencing a band that has the ability to fill several musical niches with riches.
