There is a fine line between genius and insanity, and David Champagne stomps all over that sucker with every album! On this latest installment of his socially and spiritually charged songbook, ‘Agnostic Gospel II: Bad Choices Make Good Stories,’ Champagne offers further proof of this balancing act. This is completely different take than Vol. 1, jangling with a punk energy, but it's just as wryly deep, thought-provoking and intelligent. And though Champagne does all the lead vocals on this one, it still feels like different voices of an eclectic chorus. As Champagne notes, this is the ‘existential side’ of the definition of agnostic — more the noncommittal sect than the nonreligious. As he sings in the title song, “Bad people make good stories, oh, God, so many voices” … All those voices are swimming inside David Champagne’s head, and they come pouring out here.”
