What does Christian Musician Magazine say about ApologetiX?
Christian Musician Magazine reviewed the ApologetiX CD "Adam Up" in their Mar/Apr 2004 issue. Here's what they said:
"ApologetiX is difficult to critique in a normal fashion. Specializing in parodies of songs from the 50's to today, the band is certainly clever in
its use of popular song to teach biblical truth, satirize current cultural trends and evangelize the lost in a valid and entertaining way. Calling
'Adam Up' a valid artistic statement may be a stretch, but the band plays with such unbridled joy and tongue-in-cheek aplomb that it hardly matters.
"Indeed 'Adam Up' contains the most credible musical performances yet found on an ApologetiX disc, with the female-vocal-aided 'Meshach' (the B-52's 'Love Shack'), Scottish-accented 'I'm Gonna Feed (500 Mouths)' and Ozzy Osbourne skewering 'Lazy Brain' being strong evidence of the band's
improvement. More-modern fare includes a solid, exhortational call for souls that parodies Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' ('Look Yourself') and is full
of pop culture references, and 'Called My Wife,' a tome to the deceptive power of the enemy to the tune of The Foo Fighters' 'All My Life.'"
"The true gift of ApologetiX is a unique ability to use the hook of pop music to effectively communicate solid biblical truth in a way that is both fun and infectious, and in the process, reach an audience that may never listen to Christian radio but would immediately recognize tunes by Good Charlotte, Judas Priest or Sum 41 ... a niche to be sure, but a very effective one."
