ADORATION (2003)
Capitalizing on the success of their pseudo-worship singles from Thrive, this worship project is designed to appeal to the same fans who created the unexpected success of "It Is You." Produced by Steve Taylor.

NEWSBOYS REMIXED (2002)
Remix albums are difficult projects to undertake. On the bright side, they're limited to old material, giving artists a brief respite from songwriting and composition. These benefits come at a high price, however, as expectations for remixed tracks are much more stringent. Remixed songs no longer have the innovative glow of a first listen, so they must offer either significant improvement or radically different arrangements to make their purchase worthwhile.

THRIVE: LIVE FROM THE ROCK 'N' ROLL HALL OF FAME DVD (2002)
For those who weren't able to experience the breathtaking concert at the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, the Newsboys have released this DVD that is sure to be a hit with any Newsboys fan.

THRIVE (2002)
Let's face it. For the last four years, the Newsboys have slipped from being one of the most favored Christian bands in the industry to a mass-producing factory of cheese-pop. To be more precise, limburger cheese-pop. Quite honestly, I expected more of the same from their latest release, Thrive, which is hailed to be their best album yet. While it's definitely not their greatest, it's good...semi-decent even. It's not too good or too bad, but it's decent enough to please. Read full review...

SHINE: THE HITS LIVE DVD (2000)
If you can't sell 'em, give 'em away. That at least seems to be Sparrow's marketing philosophy with the Newsboys' Live One Night in Pennsylvania concert video. Distributed to VHS not long after the studio release of Step Up to the Microphone, no one seemed to notice (or be even remotely interested) in watching a live Newsboys video. With the advent of DVD technology, however, Sparrow decided to give it a second shot and offer a free disc to everyone who purchased a copy of Shine: The Hits. Was it really that bad? Truthfully, no.

SHINE: THE HITS (2000)
Shine: The Hits is all you could ask for from a greatest hits album. The absence of anything Love Liberty Disco is a beneficial surprise, and anyone with a desire to relive the glory days of Newsboys past will appreciate this album. The new songs and remixes are a nice touch as well. Now if only we could dig up some cheerleaders to come up with a routine for the Mega-Mix... Read full review...

LOVE LIBERTY DISCO (1999)
Styling fake afros, blinding new white disco outfits, and excessive amounts of make-up, the boys from down under are back with their latest studio recording. Unfortunately. In an attempt to draw listeners in with their happy-go-lucky, enthusiastic, fun side, the boys from down under simply lack focus.

STEP UP TO THE MICROPHONE (1998)
While not nearly their best project to date, The Newsboys do indeed Step Up to the Microphone on this distinctly different record. This is NOT their best offering to date. Get Step Up to The Microphone if your a big Newsboys fan--otherwise spend your hard-earned money on an album worth buying. Read full review...

TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER (1996)
Before Skillet was terrorizing the Christian market with their Alien Youth, before Luna Halo's "Aliens" took over the airwaves, and before Regis Philbin ticked off the general television owning populace with the phrase "Is that your final answer?," the Newsboys had a head start on the whole "encounters of the third kind" thing.

GOING PUBLIC (1994)
You always remember the first CD you buy. My first purchase came at fourteen. I found this CD in my local Christian bookstore, and the cover of tent-revival faces captured by attention. Then I recognized the name of the band. So off I went, handing over my hard-earned allowance money. I still distinctly remember sitting in my parent's den pouring over the lyrics while the CD blared in the stereo. Read full review...

NOT ASHAMED (1993)
The first major-label album for the Newsboys, Not Ashamed spawned several hit singles and catapulted the Newsboys to CCM stardom.
