The deluxe edition of The Boys Aren't Backin' Down downloads has only been available for five days, but fans are already expressing their enthusiasm. Here are two reviews:
You guys really didn't just phone it in on this one. This is now the next best thing to being there! (Wish I could have been.) Great stuff as usual. Thank you! BTW, I think J's opening monologue/intro is worth the price of the CD.
The Deluxe version of The Boys Aren't Backin' Down is fantastic! The regular Boys is a great showcase of the new songs, the excellent musicianship of the band, and the stellar lyrics. However, the deluxe version is the only one that provides that genuine ApologetiX concert experience! The intros to the songs really enriches them -- it helps in the "teaching."
Both solos by Tom T. and Tom M. are excellent. And while "Walk on the Water" is not my favorite song (since I don't love the original), this version is great, especially when you take a break and everybody struts their stuff!
If any prospective church wants to know what they'll get when they book a show, they only need to listen to this album. I'm also eager to share the bonus tracks with those I've given regular-Boys to already, so they can hear the Gospel more clearly.
Absolute fantastic job! I can't wait for the DVD and I want the deluxe version of the DVD, not the regular. I also really, really want this as a double live LP in vinyl. What would it take to fund such an effort?
