Adios: Greatest Hits Review

by James Christopher Monger

Released in 2006 to coincide with the band's retirement the following year, Adios: Greatest Hits collects 17 of the raucous rap, funk, and hard rock of the Christian ensemble's best tracks from their 15-year career. Audio Adrenaline points to lead vocalist Mark Stuart's "ongoing vocal challenges" as the primary reason for the early departure from the scene, but that's hard to fathom upon hearing the two new cuts on Adios. Both "Goodbye" and "Blaze of Glory" feature Stuart and crew in all of their angst-filled/good-natured glory, providing longtime fans with an audio handshake that's both hopeful and wistful.
