Best ApologetiX CD Ever?
Wed., Nov. 9. 2011 7:20pm EST

Even Beatles and Led Zeppelin fans can't agree on what their best album was, so we can't expect Wise Up and Rock to be everyone's favorite. As to whether it's our best ever (thus far), that's a matter of opinion, but it certainly is in the conversation, at least according to these fans:

You have outdone yourself. This is your best album. The songs are great, the messages are great. You even included an 80's montage!

Mike Heil
Imperial MO

In my opinion this is by far the best album from you guys since Adam Up and perhaps best yet, but you guys have never put out a dud in my opinion.

Wade Bishop
Mantor MN

Got to say this is one of the best CDs to date and this is coming from a person that has all of the other 18 CDs.

Johnny Zepeda
Bacliff TX

Really enjoying the new CD -- all of the songs were very well done and I enjoyed all of them! This is probably my favorite ApologetiX album. I thought that cover design was perfect for the new CD!

Dave Smith
Traverse City MI

The new album is great. Probably my all-around favorite, because I'm an 80's guy. Love that stuff. Keep up the good work!

Jim Strong
Carol Stream IL

I love the new songs. I think it is one you your best CDs yet. I am an 80's music guy and you all nailed them down solid. Just wished you would have made it a double CD, using the medley songs for the 2nd CD. I would have gladly paid double for it.

T.K. Bush
Tullahoma TN

The new tracks are superb. The production is the best yet. Your vocals are great; I can easily forget that it is you singing. The only downside is the music of the eighties never really appealed much to me, but the album makes it tolerable.

Dean Ross
Bellevue NE

I had to go back and review your previous releases, but I can confidently say that Wise Up and Rock is your best yet! Masterful work on all accounts - from the lyrics to the mixing. Thanks for your unique way for God to further transform my mind!

Corey Brookins
Stevens Point, WI

I love the new "record" too. You chose awesome songs, and the medley works great. Absolutely terrific stuff. This disc will rank right up there with Recovery as my all-time favorites.

Colorado Springs CO

Far and away the best one you've done. Every CD you release raises the bar -- and y'all clear that bar with room to spare! Awesome job, guys!

Jon Eklof
Anoka MN

Great album, in the top three best ApologetiX albums easy! Your guys are truly a blessing to me and good servants of the one and only good God.

Christopher Lupo
Burlington NC

This is one of the best ApologetiX albums of all time. It is amazing how every aspect of the original music is duplicated with such accuracy. I don't know how you will be able to follow this one up! But by this point, I'm always impressed with your newest material.

David Michael
Morgantown WV

Just downloaded my new favorite ApologetiX album! Being a child of the 80s makes it that much more appealing. Love the medley.

Jonas Temple
Washington MO

Just wanted to say "wow" on the new album. The lyrics are fantastic, some of the best yet. The musicianship is spot on. The production quality is insane (in a good way)! Guys, this is the best project all around I have heard from you yet.

Aaron Schmidt
Anderson IN

Brad played your new music. I have to say it's my favorite. It's always amazes me how good God is and how he has so richly blessed you guys with your talents and gifts. May many come to Christ because of them.

Krista (and Brad) Johnson
Marysville WA

The new CD is great! You are one of the very few groups that I make sure I get everything you put out! Each disc is truly better than the one before.
