A best of package showcasing Audio Adrenaline's career which lasted over a decade and boasted over three million worldwide record sales. To say this album is diverse is a massive understatement as it demonstrates AA had a style which took in rock, rap, pop and dance to name a few. This compilation pretty much sums up their whole career in 12 tracks, starting with early hits like "Big House" and "Never Gonna Be As Big As Jesus" stretching right through to the later side of their career with songs like "Underdog", "Pierced" and "King". The track "King", written towards the end of their career, really captures Audio Adrenaline's later heavier style; produced by Joy Joyce, it ripples with rock energy and contains a groove that reminds me of Black Stone Cherry's style of music. Overall this is a great retrospective album, capturing many of the band's different styles. If you missed them in their prime check out this set.
