Loud and Clear is the fourth album released by The O.C. Supertones and features Toby Mac on the song "What It Comes To." This is also the first album that features guitarist, Ethan Luck.[3] Although Luck was not pictured, he is listed under "additional musicians" in the credits. He did not officially join the band until after the album was finished. This was also the last album that featured drummer Jason Carson, who left to take a position in youth ministry.[3]

Musically the album integrates scratching and hip-hop vocal delivery with their brand of ska.[1] The songwriting was handled primarily by Morginsky and Terusa,[3] and was considered more advanced than on previous albums.[2] Themes range from apologetics to doubting God, but still contain elements of praise and worship and pop culture.[2]
