ADDISON ROAD: STORIES

The stories sound like happenstance, like coincidence. A band without a name is assembled at the last minute, comprised of college friends and acquaintances, because a gig has suddenly become available. Somehow, the members “click” and the music is noteworthy. Years later, the band has radio success and Dove Award nominations. While writing for a new ... Read more in Amazon's Addison Road Store

5.0 out of 5 stars All That Matters is that You Buy This Album March 23, 2009
By JQ
Format:Audio CD
My first experience with Addison Road was their radio single "Hope Now." For some reason, that song made an impact with me; it stood out as a beautifully poetic, energizing, articulate ballad in the midst of its merely "good" peers. So, I was excited at the opportunity to see Addison Road perform at the "Rock and Worship Road Show" alongside MercyMe, Jeremy Camp, 10th Avenue North, and Hawk Nelson. Although they only held the stage for 3, maybe 4 songs, Addison Road made an impression. At 8.5 months pregnant, a slower pace and some breathlessness were expected, but lead singer Jenny Simmons bounced around the stage like a 4-year-old on a sugar high, and she belted out her energetic lines with clarity and seemingly boundless enthusiasm. When she came back out for an acoustic performance of "What Do I Know of Holy?", I was sold as an Addison Road fan.

After the concert, I listened to the CD several times. Addison Road strikes me as "Superchick for adults." They don't settle into a single sound for the entire album, which is nice when listening all the way through; you don't get bored. "All That Matters" forces you to move and makes passers-by look at you oddly; "Sticking With You" keeps you in that mood. As I mentioned before, "Hope Now" is just beautiful and mesmerizing to listen to. "It Just Takes One" is a solidly Superchick-ish single. And so forth; all decent songs, with some outstanding ones.

That final ballad, though, is really what sold me. "What Do I Know of Holy?" I'm trying to find the most poignant line or two to include in my review, but I'd have to post the whole thing. It's just such a wake-up call to those of us who think we know "all there is to know" about God.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Female Fronted Christian Band January 31, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought the CD when I learned that Addison Road was going to be playing at our church. I wouldn't say the group is hard rock, but they do have a bit of an edge to them. I agree with one of the other reviewers -- if you like SuperChick or FireFlight you will probably like Addison Road. The lyrics contain good messages which is nice since I'm not sure what alot of groups out there are trying to say most of the time. Overall a great CD that I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Debut (at least I think it is) December 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This group that is partly from Baylor U in Waco, TX has made a great debut, with at least a couple of the songs being radio-worthy, with the first being 'Hope Now'. This group has a great sound and should be around for a while.

3.0 out of 5 stars Talent Lies Beneath Overproduction November 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Christian pop band Addison Road's record label debut should please those who like a female-fronted group with an upbeat/alternative flair. Most of the songs, such as single "All that Matters" or the bass-heavy "It Just Takes One", are catchy and friendly enough that everyone can sing along with them. Ultimately, however, they're forgettable thanks in large part to the overproduction of the album. Many of the tracks end up sounding alike, and the talent of Jenny Simmons' singing is often drowned out by surging guitars and drums that seem like they're competing with one another.

In the latter part of the album, softer, more melodic tracks like "Always Love", "Run", and standout "What Do I Know of Holy" allow Simmons' vocals to breathe and even soar at times. These tracks balance out the heavier, more derivative sound of the earlier songs and save the album from mediocrity. "What Do I Know of Holy" in particular, on its own, makes the record worth owning. It speaks of the singer's humble realization of how little she really knows her Creator: "What do I know of You, who spoke me into motion? Where have I even stood, but the shore along Your ocean?"

This album is a promising debut for a Christian band that has plenty of talent. Addison Road is one group that I'll be following in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good use of harmony, lyrics October 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Addison Road did a great job blending harmonies (2 stars) and female vocals with overall good lyrics (1/2 star). While none of the music is incredibly complex or intricate, the songs sound good (1/2 star), and are overall pleasing to the ear (1 star). It's a good album, overall, though it could have been a little longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Major Label Debut October 13, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Addison Road first got my attention with the excellent first single All That Matters and for several months, that was the only song I heard by this former indie band from Texas, led by lead singer Jenny Simmons. If you like Superchick, Fireflight, or Cadia, you should enjoy this album.

Addison Road, the nice major label debut on INO Records, is more than just the great first single All That Matters, but not what I expected. Overall, it's a more mellow album with some nice messages including Hope Now, Start Over Again, Run and my other favorite stand-out song What Do I Know Of Holy. It is one of the most personal songs on the album with the challenging lyrics: "What do I know of Holy? What do I know of wounds that will heal my shame? And a God who gave life its name?" Jenny Simmons has a nice voice and this is a promising debut album. I look forward to hearing more by Addison Road.
