By this time, the band had been making music together for more than a decade as DeGarmo and Key (and even before that as Globe in their pre-Christian days) and on this one, it sounds like they set out to make an album with plenty of guitar and rock attitude. Ballads are at a minimum here (3 cuts) and the group has some of their "edgiest" material ever here. On album opener "Out of the Danger Zone" Dana Key yelps out a tonsil-shredding vocal while DeGarmo adds frenzied organ, "Rock Solid", while too long, is a nice showcase for Key's guitar as well on a number about having confidence in your status as a believer in Christ in the face of temptation, while midtempo "Brother against Brother" is a plea for Christian unity, revisiting a topic they first tackled on STREET LIGHT'S "Up on a Cross". ("There's a world that's losing hope/While we fight among ourselves") Very 80s ballad "Teenage Suicide" is nonetheless effective amid the wall-o-reverb production and the tender "When the Son Begins to Reign" is a tasteful longing for Heaven. "War with the World" is an unfortunate title (Petra expressed the same general sentiment a couple years earlier with "Beat the System" in a title that didn't suggest an "Us against Them" mentality) for a song about battling spiritual forces that keep people from seeing Christ's truth.

LOWS:
"Stand" and "Under the Son" are probably the weakest cuts here but they're far from bad, just ordinary.

BOTTOM LINE:
If you're new to the band, try this one on for size first. Recommended.

Being a lover of classic rock, Marshall amps and Hammond B-3 organ, I consider this to be Degarmo and Key's best album by far. The sound is great and the message is incredibly positive. When this album first hit the store shelves in 1987, the cassette tape versions were bundled together into a "buy one get one free" deal and people who bought it were encouraged to give a free copy to a friend. I remember buying the tape and giving a copy to someone I knew in college. My copy was worn out quickly, but a few years ago I picked up a first generation CD version and it gets regular playtime on my Zune now. The music has aged well.

01 - Out Of The Danger Zone - Straight ahead rocker. Great organ and guitar overlay.
02 - Under The Son - Great low end and melodic riffs. Perfect for cranking in the car. My personal favorite song on the album.
03 - Rock Solid - Starts out as a jam built around a single guitar riff, building with successive instruments coming in. When the keyboards kick in during a tag after a minute long intro, the song goes stratospheric.
04 - Teenage Suicide - Somber and melodic, a sensitive and soulful treatment of the subject that begins as a lament and ends offering hope.
05 - Strength Of Love - Progressive for it's time, begins with an upbeat "contemporary" drum loop that develops into a tasteful groove, with a crescendo chorus.
06 - Brother Against Brother - Slower in tempo but keeps pace with the Marshall and B-3 sounds of the rest of the album. A lament against Christian in-fighting.
07 - War With The World - Beginning with some down and dirty B-3 organ, this cut easily has the most aggressive riffs on the album. Another song perfect for cranking in the car. My second favorite tune here.

I consider this self titled album as one of D&K:s top album not only musically but also spiritually as their deliberately strategy was to use this CD to spread the word of Jesus into young peoples life. The inside folder contains references from each song to Bible verses and also questions to the listener to decide on. This was 1987 and I really hope that this album was proved to thought provoking for many and blessing for others
