Very Ticked! | Posted June 22, 2016
THIS REVIEW IS ADAPTED FROM A REVIEW I POSTED ON MY WEBSITE. TO CHECK OUT MY REVIEW OF APOLOGETIX'S ALBUMS OF 2014, CLICK HERE!

In 2014, ApologetiX, That Christian Parody Band, started bi-weekly singles to give fans more songs and they thought it would be a great idea to help them with their financial problems. Do the math: they released 46 songs in single format in 2014 and six additional songs in Apoplectic! That’s fifty-two songs in one year! (They released another ton in 2015, and are doing it this year!) And I shall review the most unique from this system: “Apoplectic.”


This album was very different compared to many of their other albums. Just like “Ticked (Rolling Clone),” this album is full of 90s parodies! (In addition, this album is a sequel to “Ticked.”) Though it did take me a listen or two, I really enjoyed this album. I do think there was more diversity on “Ticked” and I missed that.

With them recording in their drummer’s new studio, Red Apple Audio Workshop, the quality starts to tie “Wordplay” and sounds amazing (and it gets better as time progresses). They might also blow you away how well they are able to mimic the original songs!

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist, has worked hard writing these parodies and singing for this album; round of applause! You can hear his daughter, Janna, singing on “Aaronic” and “One Of Us Indeed,” and I remember listening to those two songs over and over!

In addition, Tom Tincha, Keith Haynie, Jimmy “Vegas” Tanner, and Chris VonBartheld, the touring members, play guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards respectively. Other guest artists (none you may recognize, though) drop in to play various instruments, including the banjo and the brass instruments.

Unlike the other three albums from APX released in 2014, this album has several album exclusive songs and the songs from the singles are spread out through out the album. This made the album one amazing piece!

But did this review make you very ticked? If not, then it would be wise to buy this album!

My favorite songs:
One Of Us Indeed” (parody of “One Of Us” by Joan Osborne)
Proving My Religion” (parody of “Losing My Religion” by REM)
God Knows You’ve Tried” (parody of “Slide” by the Goo Goo Dolls)

Apoplectic Review | Posted March 16, 2015
I love this album! My favorite parodies are Come For Some, Bathwater, God Know You've Tried, and Comeback. ApologetiX does a great job of taking popular  songs and changing the lyrics and putting God's message in there! Great job APX for another great album!
