Format: MP3 Music
Wow, finally, this album is being released in MP3, because sadly it was never released on CD. Voted in CCM Magazine as one of the top 25 Christian albums, and likely a top 10 for me. DeGarmo & Key could play with any band in the country, but they played at a time when radio refused to play Christian music, and sadly Christian Radio wouldn't play DeGarmo & Key because they were a rock band. Its hard to say how far they might have gone Had the dynamic duo of Christian Rock put their faith in the closet, but compromise wasn't in this bands vocabulary. Hey, I could listen to the Band & feel like a real rebel, these guys may be one of the few bands in the country banned from MTV. Incredible live, this album comes closer than most to capturing their energy, while having better production than their first album. I am still grieving the loss of Dana Key, more than a great singer, guitar player, he was a man sold out for God and he was all about ministry. The only Christian Band that could rival their complete combination of music and ministry was maybe Petra or Resurrection Band. If only for reasons of historical perspective, this is one of the best albums from a time when Christian Rock was as much or more to share their message with non-christians as it was for the Church. Something sadly missing from today's Christian music.

The DeGarmo & Key’s sophomore effort contains some of the best tunes in all of Christian Music. The production by Joe Hardy and D&K put a new standard on Christian Rock for 1980. The separation and the play of stereo combined with crisp and clear tones and defined bass sounds made Straight On a masterpiece. The industry was really starting to change at this point and DeGarmo & Key were helping make that happen. A band that finally had the progressive rock overtones of great musicianship with pop-rock sensibilities and respected production. If you are familiar with The DeGarmo & Key of the CCM future, this is a different animal …It Rocked!
Dana Key’s voice is a combination of Michael McDonald and Mylon Lefevre and his guitar work is bluesy and tasteful, While Eddie Degarmo keeps us entertained with sweeping keyboard, synth and organ sounds, and actually sings on a song.
The songs usually dealt with scripture and evangelism in the same way Petra or Sweet Comfort Band may have written them. Jericho, Long Distance Runner and Mary all have biblical principles that make you feel like you just had a small bible study on some random biblical passages.
This album still sounds fresh today which is difficult to say about a lot of Christian Music of the seventies. Great production, tasty songs and respected musicianship always put this album in a league of its own, far above any other Degarmo & Key effort of the future… The only complaint I have is it’s to short at just over 34 minutes.

As I recall, this wasn't their best selling album,... but it is quite likely their best. Coming on the heels of the excellent "This Time Thru", the band had learned some things about recording. Tighter rhythms, crisper sound, neo-classical type arrangements. Refreshingly devoid of ProTools and other editing gizmos. This is pure unadulterated rock. Which, in concert, D&K took full advantage of the jams, usually greatly extending their length to the delight of this reviewer. The spirit of that kind of rock is here, a yearning for something more, lyrically spoken to the listener and to God, full guitar, full keyboard. Mind you, this isn't metal, nor does it attempt to be. But in 1979, this brand of Memphis rock and roll was so wonderfully, wildly different than, say the Bill Gaither Trio, Pete Carlson, and Evie, and other offerings available, strangely, in the same record section at the Bible Bookstore.
A vocally, lyrically, musically, dynamically, thematically rivteing, spirited and spiritual, heartfelt, passionate recording.
After this, (with the exception of the Live double Album) the recording output of the band trended toward more commercial, mainstream offerings, making this one of the great, early Jesus rock albums of its time.
