With lots of guitar, powerful drums, and B-3 organ, this third outing for the band shows it abandoning the "dance thing" in favor of a more organic mix complete with real live drummer John Knox. And with these songs about pain, poverty, and emotion, they are all the better for the shift. Homeboys is more sophisticated all around. The excellent cover of Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues" — more subdued than the original — has a yearning quality courtesy of Eugene's unique voice. The standout closing track, "No Regrets," laments an apparently self-incited loss or separation, and is heart-wrenching in sentiment ("If I could be anyone again, I'd be that child in your arms"). Another unique track — "This Band Is Our House" — is a sort of tribute to the band as a group collective. This release presents the band as more of a serious outfit, stronger and more unified as a result. ~ Mark W.B. Allender, Rovi
Adam Again were a great band of musicians whose personal philosophies happened to be informed by a Theistic or Christian worldview; this is an important distinction to make because categorizing this band as "Christian Rock" is both insulting and an oversimplification. This band, led by esteemed music producer Gene Eugene understood that the power of art and faith often exist in its subtleties; metaphor, symbolism, and simply personal experiences provide far greater validity for expressing the Truth of God than conservative and dogmatic sloganeering and proselytizing. This album grooves, and although going on 20 years old (!!!) it is a timeless work of art; glad to see it on i-Tunes.
One of the greatest albums ever recorded.
