With the rather torturous extended final tour of America's beloved pop rockers finally drawing to a close Cross Rhythms needs to acknowledge this rather fine CD and DVD goodbye to the hard rocking heroes. The CD contains 18 songs including two newies, one of which, the appropriately titled "Goodbye", has been a recent CR turntable hit. A rather arbitrary selection of songs but at least it doesn't duplicate tracks on the other AA compilations. The main attraction for this package is the compilation of music videos. Lots of classic songs ("Big House", "Some Kind O Zombie", "Ocean Floor", etc) and considerable wit and imagination shown in the production concepts. All in all a worthy adios to a hugely influential band.

This is a nice collection of works from the band. They would break up the following year. This cd of songs is approx. 1 hour and 10 minutes long!!And with the added dvd of 1 hour and 20 minutes, that is 2 1/2 hours!! Worth the buy!!The cd starts off with one of my favorites "Big House", I absolutely luv 2001 "Ocean Floor"; luv the video as well; great song guys!! "Leaving 99" is also another favorite; have video (of course with this special edition). The video for "Never Gonna be as Big as JESUS" was left out of the video collection!!! I thought the new song "Goodbye" would have faired better to close the cd collection; I like it!! "Beautiful" from 2001 is also another favorite. I just luv "Pierced" from 2003 "Worldwide", it's an awesome song!! !! "KING" & "Starting Over" from 2005 are just amazing!:Who cannot relate to "Starting Over". Another new song closes the cd, "Down in the Lowlands" a song for the rockers!!written by ccm artist Charlie Peacock. I am grateful this band recorded their songs; they are memories to take along this road and share. GOD Bless them all!! the band will be missed -Don

We saw Audio perform last night at Spirit West Coast Monterey.
It was clear Mark was struggling with the voice. But he fought for it... and did an amazing job. What an emotional night. They sang the new songs from the Adios disc. WOW! Despite the bittersweet message of the song "Starting Over", ( I believe that's what it's called), I was blown away by how pure the message was and taken away by the melody. It was one of those songs you just don't want to end. Much like this group!
Buy this one!!!!
