From the opening of the album's first track, "Dr. Jones and the Kings of Rhythm," to the final seconds of the end ballad "Do You Know What Love Is," Miracle Mile is a fantastic demonstration of Christian metal. The album contains a perfect mix of ballads and rockers, something that even more popular artists fail to achieve. Although the themes are relevant to faith in Christ, the lyrics are so indirect and powerful that they make the album a treat for any metal fan. The band itself sounds great; Jamie Rowe's vocals are raspy yet melodic, and Tony Palacios' guitar riffs keep interest throughout. Capturing Guardian's music at its peak, Miracle Mile is one of the finest metal albums of the early '90s.
