You will love this cd! At first, I thought that All Star United wouldn't be good because not many people unfortunately don't know about them. I heard "Tenderness" at a friends house and was so touched. All Star United can bring you in with catchy choruses, as in "la la land" and "smash hit" and rock away as in "Beautiful thing" and still make you want to cry in "Tenderness" and "Torn." Tenderness is a beautiful song about how even though we sin, God is tender to us because of Christ. Overall, this album totally rocks for Jesus.

Don't shy away from this album because it'll keep you smiling, and don't make that sound like it's some boy band pop crap. An album can still rock out like no other while still being fun and happy. ok... so i guess you'd call this band pop; but pop with an edge. It is pop but it's still heavy. Hard to explain if you haven't heard it, and that's why you need to. It is also creative, making the melodies intriguing so that it keeps your interest. It's 45 minutes of pure joy, so go check out the guitar heavy pop band that's sweeping the nations with their Sma-a-sh hits!

If you like hard rocking music that still manages to be melodic,creative,and profound,you will love this record. From the unusual two-part harmonies on "Angels" to the important message and catchy groove of "Bright Red Carpet",to the gentle (for a while) acoustic guitar and poetic lyrics of "Saviour of my Universe",this is,in my opinion,one of the best pop/rock albums ever made.

All Star United's self-titled debut is just plain F-U-N. The album is a bit of a paradox, providing mature, guitar-centric, bubble-gum pop music that somehow comes off as a serious contender without any pretense of taking itself seriously, like the President giving a speech on world economics in his undroos or fine dining at the Queen's estate eating lobster and Cocoa Puffs.
The use of the term "pop" music should be clarified so as to not be compared to the contrived plastic of boy bands or young girl icons usually associated with the term. In fact, while the album represents the debut of their incarnation as All Star United, the sum of the band members represents decades of experience.
Outside of his two album solo career, Ian Eskelin on lead vocals has had guitar, keyboard, or other collaboration history with no less than 10 previous bands, including the well known Newsboys and Code of Ethics. Patrick, the guitarist, also shared axe duties for the well-known synth act The Echoing Green. Christian Crowe backed Ian up on drums during his solo career, and Gary rounds out the act on bass. While Ian wrote most of the tracks on the tail end of his solo career, their combined efforts has brought a success to a whole new level above anything seen by them individually. In the year of its release, the album produced many rankings in the top 5 and a couple number one hits.
The band does an excellent job of poking fun at the industry it has so much experience with. `Smash Hit' takes a jab directly at the packaging of this whole Jesus thing, shemlessly referencing overpriced merchandise and image exploitation of Christianity.

All Star United's debut album is one of my favorite cd's that I own. The heavy guitar riffs of "Smash Hit" make it one of my favorite songs. The use of heavy guitar juxtaposed with melodic keyboards increase that appeal of this cd to all types of listening. Soft, catchy rhythms found on tracks like "Savior of My Universe" add beautiful touches of finess while the laughably sarcastic lyrics of "Smash Hit" and "LaLaLand" give this cd a great edge! All Star's sophomore album "International Anthems For the Human Race" shows the maturation of this incredibly talented band.

After hearing these guys on the Third Day tour I was excited for the album, but I had no idea. This is one of the VERY rare albums I have that DOESN'T have a lame song on it. The song that first attracted me to the CD, Smash Hit, has now been replaced as my favorite ASU track--an event that happens every couple of weeks as I either get encouraged by the message of a song or dig a sweet riff. BY ALL MEANS BUY THIS CD, you won't be disappointed (this review is from a teenage rock fan, not an old fogey)

These guys have got it! Great attitude, great lyrics, great sound, and a great Saviour they want to tell you about. My personal copy was given to me a Christmas present, and with that I was introduced to a band with fascinating lyrics. Their first track - La La Land - is about what we can do for God. It takes a satirical approach with lyrics such as "My Jesus Decal does quite a trick, ... saves me from speeding tickets".
They draw their musical style from Blur, who they played a track of a Parachute Festival Extreme 1998, in New Zealand. I was up there enjoying the music, finding out what I could about their new album, and getting my CD autographed. Rock on!
