One of Christian music’s top-selling and top touring acts, tween group pureNRG, released this exclusive remix album for Family Christian Stores. The album features remixed versions of fan favorites such as “Here We Go Again,” “Pray,” “What If,” and “360.” The album was remixed by producer, composer, and songwriter Tim Holt, who has done production and remixes for such Christian artists as Rebecca St. James, Charlie Peacock, etc.
“It was really cool to redo some of our favorite songs and present them in a new way,” says pureNRG. “The response to our first two CDs was awesome and we wanted to give our fans something special and new in celebration of that.”
reNRGized features four remixed versions of songs from pureNRG’s self-titled debut in 2007 and four from Here We Go Again that released in 2008.
Since bursting on the Christian music scene in 2007, pureNRG become known for their jaw-dropping live performances and family-friendly faith driven lyrics. They became the top-selling new artist of 2007 and Here We Go Again debuted at No. 2 on the SoundScan Christian/Gospel Christian Retail chart and also landed in the Top 10 Christian Albums at iTunes. At the same time, pureNRG was endorsed by The International Network Of Children’s Ministry in Colorado Springs, CO for being such positive role models and sharing strong messages of faith that impacted children around the world. The group was also selected to team up for special promotions with Precious Moments, Yahoo! Kids, and Milk Rock campaigns.

I've been a fan of pureNRG since they Came onto the scene in 2007. Now, only two years into there career, they have three albums, three DVDs, a Christmas album, and a book under their belt, pureNRG is back and reNRGized with this all new remix release.
"Are You Ready," is a good song, Here We Go Again, is given a faster pace "Any Which Way" is toned down into a relaxing, simple beat, guitars are traded in for sunny synthesizers on the song "Here We Go Again," while "Pray" gets a dose of vocal distortion and light programming sound effects.
reNRGized Review| Posted March 22, 2009
I've been a fan of pureNRG since they blasted onto the scene with their debut album in 2007. Now, only two years later, with three albums, three DVDs and a book under their belt, pureNRG is back and reNRGized with this all new remix release.
"Are You Ready," from their 2008 sophomore album Here We Go Again, is given a faster pace and fun, peppy horn programming. The Radio Disney feel of "Any Which Way" is taken and toned down into a relaxing, simple beat that would be perfect to listen to while sipping lemonade by the pool. Crunchy guitars are traded in for sunny synthesizers on the song "Here We Go Again," while "Pray" gets a dose of vocal distortion and light programming sound effects.
The only song that doesn't match up to the original is the somewhat boring "It's Still Love." The original was a lively finale to their debut album and while this remix may showcase their tight vocal harmonies, the musical production is lackadaisical and uninteresting. The rock vibe of "Inside Out" morphs into a light pop beat, and while the cheesy, childish lyrics on "What If" are still present, the annoying, cheerleader-esque music is transformed into a more mature, polished sound that would fit right in with Miley Cyrus or The Jonas Brothers. Last, but not least, "360"'s sonic assembly is knocked down a couple notches and changed into a soothing end to the album.
Overall, unlike most remix albums, the songs on reNRGized are a little quieter than the originals. Although pureNRG is a great pop act, sometimes their constant energy can get a little overwhelming, and it's nice to have a project that's a little more mature and toned down. It's a great album for any pureNRG fan, and a nice sampler for those who have yet to buy their music
