Audio A Goes Out With A Bang!| Posted August 25, 2007
Now, we didn't know it when it came out, but this would be the last Audio A CD of totally new material. And did they go out in style, as the first track quickly shows. "Clap Your Hands" is one of my favorite Audio A songs, a great rocking song that's just plain party fun. It's impossible not to either play air guitar, or dance. If you don't, you don't know how to have fun, because this song it cranked to 11 fun. And while not as good as "Clap Your Hands", the title song is a great rock song.
"King" is a great Audio A original worship song. Audio A never did a cover to do a great worship song, they created them, and this song is one of their best worship/praise songs. "Undefeated" comes with a little of Deja Vu, as it sounds a lot like the title song.
"Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher" is the best cover ever done of that song. Mark Stuart shines for good reason on this song, and blows the original out of the water.
Overall, Audio A didn't go out doing bad albums, they went out with some of the best work of their career. This is a great band, and they'll be sorely missed by all CCM fans. Let it be said Audio A went out undefeated and in a blaze of glory.
Until the Band Caves In| Posted August 21, 2015
After nearly fifteen years with ForeFront Records, Audio Adrenaline released Until My Heart Caves In, their final studio album with Mark Stuart at the helm. Not long after the release, Audio Adrenaline announced that they were breaking up, due to issues with Stuart’s vocal cords. Their final show was recorded and can be found on Live From Hawaii . . . The Farewell Concert from 2007. Until My Heart Caves In (2005): 11 tracks, 38 minutes
For their last record, Audio Adrenaline pulled out the stops and went back to their classic sound, at least for the first few tracks. Again, you can really begin to hear the strain on Stuart’s vocals in “Clap Your Hands” and “Until My Heart Caves In,” both songs that bring back memories of songs like “I’m Not the King” and “Worldwide:One.” “King” recalls “Hands and Feet” and “Go and Be.” A lot of the other songs seem to blend into one, but they still differ from one another.
“Undefeated” has some great lyrics, like “They [my friends] stand beside me / When the world's not going my way / We may be losers / But we're winners in the end” and “Here in the valley, the valley / I know there is a mountain top / Where I can stand and sing / Love conquers all.” “All Around Me” reminds us of the worth in everyone, “I see the imprint, I see the traces / Of Your beauty on the faces / Of all the people passing by me.”
“Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher” has a line that asks God to quench our desires. Our desires may seem evil at heart because of what we do to satisfy them, but at the root our desires are given to us by God. The problem occurs when we try to satisfy them outside of God’s intended context. It’s a common misconception, but one worth mentioning.
While it may not be a spectacular album, especially compared to the rest of their albums, Audio A definitely starts this one off right. The rest of the album still features many of the great lyrics that can be found on all of the Audio Adrenaline records. If you’re into Audio A, this album is essential.
Great Album!!!| Posted October 05, 2013
This album was a staple for me when I first was saved. The title track "Until My Heart Caves In" helped me push through many hardships and battles. A great big thanks to Mark, Will and the guys for the awesome music you have been making. Keep up the good work
A Great Album| Posted April 07, 2010
I highly enjoyed Until My Heart Caves In by Audio Adrenaline,though it might not be as rocking as earlier records by the group,I think this is good because it shows Audio A can also do a great job when branching out to slower or worship songs. The album is packed with great new songs,from the opening song "Clap Your Hands" which is a terrific rocking song,to the album finale "Losing COntrol" which is a slow almost acoustic song. Some of the highlights that I felt to be great were "Starting Over" which I thought was a very deep song,"Are You Ready For Love?" and "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher" which made me just wanna jump up and praise the Lord! Though Mark's trademark vocals don't fill the whole album,I still think this is a great album and highly recommend it.
What an Album| Posted January 29, 2010
Audio A's 8th album "Until My Heart Caves In" is one for the ages.Longtime lead singer Mark Stuart
unique voice(he sounds a little like rocker Rod Stewart)is less present on this Cd as in the past.
This Cd features lead guitarist Tyler Burkum on many songs with Mark doing duty as backup.Tyler does a good job singing on "Starting Over" and "Are You Ready For Love". Mark's raspy,familiar voice can be heard on catchy tunes such as "King","Undefeated" and Clap Your Hands".
I esp. enjoyed AA version of "Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher".This is definitely one of the highlights of the CD.The final song "Losing Control"is a touching,sentimental,heart-wrenching song.
For any fan of AA this is a must have CD.My only complaint is that it is too short (Only 11 songs).
AA was the first Christian band I ever listened to.They will forever hold a special place in my heart and soul.
Good but not great| Posted February 21, 2008
This is probably my least favorite Audio Adrenaline album. I expected more from them after such great rock albums like Underdog and Lift. UMHCI steps away from the gritty rock and incorporates more radio friendly/AC sounds, perhaps due to the higher usage of Tyler's vocals with Mark's trademark voice waning. "Undefeated" and "Clap Your Hands" are, however, reminiscent of the rock that Audio A usually has while "Starting Over" and the title track are beautiful melodic ballads. This is not Audio A's best but is still worth listening to.
