There may be those of you who may not be Stryper fans, or who may be fans but skeptical about re-recordings of classic songs, or even those of you who for some reason hated this awesome band. But whatever your case, you should definitely check them nowadays, you'll be positively surprised.

Unlike most bands and artists who usually start loosing the fire as time passes by, Stryper is one of the rare cases where they keep getting better, in everything, as they mature and their career advances. I always loved them and thought they were awesome, but they were able to surpass themselves with time, not loosing qualities, but instead gaining and improving their qualities.

Michael's voice is better than ever, he was already one of the best, but not only does he still have it and is able to sing perfectly in tune great melodies and hit those amazing high notes, his voice sounds more mature and "manly". Their guitar playing clearly shows Michael and Oz are one of the best duos in metal, they are both extremely good lead guitar players, and their solos are unique and have soul, they never sound like guitar exercises as many overrated players end up sounding, they are always very melodic and electrifying, and they also gotten better at it, if you like guitars there's no way you won't like them, and they are also excellent rhythm players. The bass and drums are also sounding even better now and everything is clear on the mix, Tim and Robert are definitely a strong and cohesive rhythm section and they have sould in their playing, they also have gotten better with time. As a unit they also became more cohesive, they put out some of the most amazing live performances one can watch.

By the early 1980's the American christian music industry had warmed up to the idea of hard music. In 1984 Stryper released 'The Yellow and Black Attack', Saint released 'Warriors of the Son' and the term 'Christian metal' was officially born. As more people came to faith through the metal scene in America, it became apparent that the mainstream churches didn't want the long-hairs mixing with their nice, respectable people. So Pastor Bob Beeman started the ministry 'Sanctuary - The Rock and Roll Refuge'. Sanctuary's first worship leader was Michael Sweet of Stryper.

In 1985, Stryper released 'Soldiers Under Command', which sold just over half a million copies, and Heaven's Metal Magazine was launched. Then in 1986, Stryper released their now legendary album 'To Hell with the Devil'. This didn't go as smoothly as planned to start with, as many christian shops refused to stock the album with its original Angel cover art. So they had to put it out with a very bland cover. The album eventually sold 2 million copies (I think it is still the best selling christian metal album to date).

Stryper were so huge at the time that they even had Metallica as their support act. During concerts, Stryper would throw bibles into the crowd with the bands logo and 777 on the front. This was a clever bit of marketing against the 666 used by many secular bands. Although 777 is not actually in the Bible (whereas 666 is in Revelations as the number of the beast, the number 7 is associated with divine perfection). Yet the famous television evangelist, Jimmy Swaggart, felt the need to declare that christian rock and metal was the music of the devil and specifically criticised Stryper, Petra and Larry Norman.

Stryper's previous album The Covering consisted of cover versions of other people's songs. Now the band have released an album of cover versions of their own songs !! I've got no particular problem with this if they had taken a different slant to some of these songs, which are almost 30 years old. Much like Def Leppard they have produced almost carbon copies of the originals. I can only assume that like Def Leppard they are disgruntled with their original label Enigma owning the copyright to the tracks ? The one track that does add something to the original is Together As One, and that has been added as a bonus track to the Japan/Korea release ! If the band had released this as a bonus disc with a new album of 10 tracks I wouldn't be grumbling. As it is newcomers are sent in the direction of the Seven-The Best Of Stryper compilation.

I bought this album because I love christian heavy metall and hard rock, and christian music in general.
This is a okay album I guess, its not my favorite. I like more Petra and Whitecross than Stryper. I would recommend it for folks who like stryper or folks who like bands like Whitecross.
