"New & Used Hits": Two New Reviews Coming Right at You
Thu., Feb. 24. 2005 12:22am EST
Here are some excerpts from two reviews published this week about of our latest CD, "New & Used Hits: The Best of ApologetiX Vol. 1 & 2," which was released in late November 2004:
"Apologetix have been doing their style of parody for a number of years, and I've been able to stick with them as they've gotten more famous, more convincing in their parodies, and dare I say it better with each track. This is a double-disc, compiling the best of the ApologetiX along with their newest disc of tracks, and I feel that the newest
should be covered more. I mean, they are such a leap over the previous fare from the band ...
The band has been around for a decade, and only seems to get better with each subsequent album. I have no doubt that the band could complete their next decade without much effort."

"Who knew that just one band could do quality musical copys of secular songs from a diverse selection of musical genres? Well J. Jackson the lead singer and lyricist of Apologetix obviously understood that possibility ... This album has some almost exact copies of songs like 'The Real Slim Shady' by Eminem and 'In The End' by Linkin Park. A lot of times Christians wonder what it would be like if secular musicians got saved? Well wonder no more because now you can listen to what it would sound like. I think the standout of the 40 songs on this 2 CD album is the song 'The Real Sin Savior' a parody of Eminem that has lyrics that are so clever with music that seems very similar to the original."
