As others have said here, this is a gem of an album, and is well worth your time.
G. Beresford
It is simultaneously a work that appeals to lovers of strong songwriting, lovers of raucous guitars and lovers of danceable beats.
R. Davis
They pulled music out of the human soul and the image of God and humbly presented it to the world.
Patrick M. Cox

Let me start by stating I rate the albums based on the genre they fit into, so a 5 star may not be truely reflective of the lasting greatness of the music. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE CDS. THIS GETS A 5 STAR BECAUSE IT IS ONE OF THE BEST EVER MADE.

Gene Eugene, God rest his soul, was a genious: period. Everything he touched became gold. What he did in Lost Dogs was nothing short of a miracle. Seeing them live was a memory of this terminal existence I call my life that will resonate with me forever. Adam Again was a band that deserved world wide notice. I hope that one day someone makes it big and points to the Adam Again collection as an inspiration.

Specifically, Dig defines what Christian Rock should be about. Not just praise, but serious existential inquiries. Honest heartfelt cries to the unknown.

If you want a song from humanity, you have it with Worldwide. "Yeah we all loved that desert thunder, we put some sticker on our bumper, 3 million nothings in the world why should anybody bother Worldwide". As was stated it ranks with What's Going On, Imagine, and all the other "popular" songs of hope and desperation. Hopeless, etc is a classic call of the human spirit, while in the throes of self effacement, recognizing that the Nietzschian Uberman is lonely and weak.(I am Hopeless...Hopeless and tired, would give me the sign I'm looking for, I am mired, with the earnest and sight inspired")

These are but 2 songs that make this what I consider one of the best albums EVER. Dig, Deep, they just don't stop. The one poster was correct, if you are reading this you have been digging. [...].

"I've had my conscience bent, I've had my patience tried. I've been up in the desert and down by the river side. Will the eagle fly, if the skies untrue.

This album first introduced me to the infectious vocals of Gene Eugene, and I am a better man for it. Well, maybe a bit harder of hearing, anyway.
Adam Again has an exceptional talent for combining guitars, bass, and vocals into this hooky, loopy thing that wears out the repeat on the CD player. While almost impossible to sum up the album in few words, elements of funk and rock combine to force the volume up and the windows down. This strong, driving style remains throughout the album, pausing only briefly for the ballad-esk 'Dig' and 'River of Fire' and the short, poppy and extremely catchy 'Worldwide' that makes me wish I could whistle nearly as well as Gene. The only exception I had to this was 'Hopeless', where I felt the driving beat was a bit drawn out. Mind you, it was effective in driving the point of hopelessness across, but I still usually give the track a skip.
The lyrics stand out, in that Gene's vocals are really a part of the song, versus music accompanying the singing. You come away absently singing the lyrics, then think about what your singing, then have a compelling need to listen to delve into what the songs are saying. At face value, the songs are creative combinations of catchy phrases. After further analysis, you start to grasp what they are trying to say. On careful reflection, you are emotionally moved as you say "Yeah, I'm there.". At whatever level you take the lyrics, they often say more than face value. One of the most played tracks from my CD player is the smooth 'River on Fire'. Once I learned about the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio that caught fire due to pollution, the song meant much more to me. And so it is with many of the songs, where you are left wondering, "Am I really getting what's being said?

Having already been made incredibly sad by the recent passing of Adam Again frontman and songwriter Gene Eugene, I grow sadder still as I realize that this fine album is tucked away in this little "Christian/Gospel" ghetto.
I listen to a lot of music, from people of every religious/philosophical persuasion, and I have to say this: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS OF THE LAST 25 YEARS. "Dig" is truly a classic, in every sense of the word -- right up there with The Clash's "London Calling," The Beatles' "Sgt. Peppers," Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" or any other album that would make a "critics best" list.
This is a record that works on every level. It is simultaneously a work that appeals to lovers of strong songwriting, lovers of raucous guitars and lovers of danceable beats. The enigmatic and evocative lyrics, not characteristic of those artists tagged as "Christian," will get into your head and under your skin. Even now, certain lines give me shivers.
If you're reading this page, you've obviously being "dig"-ing a little deeper than the average music fan. Do yourself a favor and unearth this gem -- it's absolutely worth the effort.
"The earth is hard, the treasure fine."

Dig is, simply, a work of wonder, wired through with emotion and electricity that, combined, grace this disc with a synergistic shot of soul stripped raw and shining.
Ditching his previous lyrical style in favor for a murkier, streaming flow of evocative phrases that combine into his most moving songs yet, Gene Eugene exposes the struggles, both spiritual and relational, of humans with metaphors and images that pry deep into the mind and nestle. Musically, a double-guitar attack melded with a solid, funky slab of bass and drums helps propel these songs, tugging at the feet to dance while the words work their way into your mind.
I am waxing entirely too much. This album is a sadly overlooked one, especially since it is one of the best of the decade. You owe it to yourself to find a copy. Dig, if you must. The earth is hard; the treasure fine.
