Lift [edit]
by Audio Adrenaline | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: November 21, 2001
 

According to lead singer Mark Stuart, Lift is in the same vein as Bloom, the group's first Gold certified record. Listeners will hear a more serious, and vertical message in the title track as well as in songs like "Ocean Floor," "You Still Amaze Me" and "Glory." Their trade-mark youth group friendly appeal is still evident in anthems like "Rejoice," "Lonely Man," and "Summertime." Even if their sound has matured, Audio Adrenaline still creates timeless rock-n-roll from a heart for kids and their desire to share the gospel to them

One Of Their Best | Posted August 02, 2007
Audio Adrenaline returns with their sixth studio album, Lift. According to lead singer Mark Stuart, Lift is in the same vein as bloOm, the group's first Gold certified record. Listeners will hear a more serious, and vertical message in the title track and in songs like "Ocean Floor," "You Still Amaze Me" and "Glory." Their trademark youth group friendly appeal is still evident in anthems like "Rejoice," "Lonely Man," and "Summertime." Definitely building off the momentum generated by their greatest hits record that included the smash hit "Will Not Fade," Lift is powerful guitar pop that pleases the ear throughout the entire length of the album.

Probably My Favorite Audio Adrenaline | Posted August 20, 2015
For 2001’s Lift, Audio Adrenaline went back to their roots and dug deep. This sound permeated the next record, 2003’s Worldwide as well. Two years later, their final album with Mark Stuart at the head, Until My Heart Caves In was released.
Lift (2001): 13 tracks, 54 minutes
Musically, Lift features guitar riffs and bass licks that define the classic Audio A sound. In this regard, Lift is especially refreshing; songs like the first three tracks, “Rejoice,” “Summertime,” and “Lonely Man.” They get you pumped up and excited, almost like . . . “audio adrenaline.” However, they have some ambient, softer songs that still “Speak to Me,” so to speak. They help to break up the record and add some dynamic. It’s a classic Audio A trick. This also demonstrates another staple of the band; their mature Christian lyrics. You begin to see them on 1997’s Some Kind of Zombie, but they transferred into Underdog and Lift as well.
 “I’m Alive” features the trademark quirky lyrics in the verses, “Sometimes I wake up feeling / Like I did back in L.A. / But since I’m from Kentucky / That feeling must have been a mistake . . . Have you ever longed / To take a walk on top of a cloud / If this feeling was a chemical / I don’t think it would be allowed.” “Ocean Floor” is a beautiful song about where our sins really are: “They’re on the bottom / Of the ocean floor.” In “Rejoice” we see Audio A’s passion for the gospel in a fun, upbeat way. Sometimes our words can’t describe the greatness of God, says “Glory.”
This album is definitely clean, but there’s a few things that are worth mentioning. “Speak to Me” says “I’m in a fix / Need something quick,” so “I’ve opened up Your Word to free me,” but the Bible shouldn’t be our last resort in times of hardship. It should be part of our daily time spent with God. The chorus of “Lift” states “And I lift you up so high / I forget about the world I’m living in,” which seems almost like asceticism, something the Bible doesn’t advocate at all.
Despite those minor issues, this record is solid lyrically and fantastic musically. I really enjoy listening to it and any Audio A fan definitely will too. But even if you’re not, this album covers a lot of ground and does it in an upbeat and dynamic way; the Audio Adrenaline way.

I think that this is their best album yet. It has great music, as always. They did a great job putting this record together. I also like how the title ,Lift, flows through every song.

Great But not perfect | Posted February 22, 2008
Lift by Audio Adrenaline is a great album, but not perfect. The album starts strong and over half the album has great songs which include: "Beautiful", "Ocean Floor", "Speak To Me", and "I'm Alive'. But towards the end of the album it starts to lose it's momentum. Furthermore if you own Audios the Greatest Hits then two of these songs are on there. So while Lift has a great selection alone, but you may want to just get Audios or if you already own Audios possibly skip Lift. This is a great album, don't get me wrong, but your only paying for 3 or 4 good songs if you already own Audios. So in the end it really depends what you own/will own if you need to get Lift or not. So my verdict is get Lift if your not planning on getting Audios. The other option is get Audios and download "You Still Amaze Me", "I'm Alive", and "Speak To Me" online, since we do live in a digital age.
