With the 1994 Whitecross album, "Unveiled", we see a band reacting, rather than innovating. Whitecross is a fairly well known older band in the Christain Music scene. The trajectory of their career is they began as a hard rock band with all the trappings of 1980s hair metal (big ballads, scorching guitar solos, over the top personalities, albeit from a Christian setting in Whitecross's case. No fornication songs here!). The 1990s role around, grunge happens, and the band spends the last half of the 1990s trying to find a new way to connect to listners who have completely changed.

Whitecross was never an innovative band. They were able to find a niche market in the 1980s as a Christian hair-metal band (oh look, we can still have our rock and roll and not have all those evil influences of the prototypical rock music of that era). This is mainly why Stryper found success as well. The early 1990s found the band residing safely in their hair-metal roots. By 1994, however, Whitecross was in a fairly precarious position, exacerbated by two main factors.

1. Grunge had been moving full steam ahead for three years, and the hair-metal 1980s music had been exiled from public consciousness. Overall, the record buying public had moved on, and like any living organism, it was up to Whitecross to adapt or die.

2. Rex Carroll, the "Eddie Van Halen" of the CCM scene and one of the principal driving forces of Whitecross, left the band to from the much less intersting "King James" (guess what Bible translation they read). It also didn't help that Carroll was the primary songwriter as well. Carroll's absence is felt everywhere in the record, especially if you know the earlier albums. Gone is the Ax-Man, and it's a bitter departure indeed in terms of the actual music.

I remembered when I was waiting for this CD, that I never anticipate new music from Whitecross, any more than this one. Because, lead guitarist Rex Carroll had left, and I felt that the preasure was on for Scott Wenzel (Lead Singer/Founder) to come out with another CD that the fans can boast about. I think, that it was: Mission accomplished! There are some fans that will always be stuck on the previous Whitecross style with Rex Carroll at guitar, but, if you're open-minded to new possibilities, then give this offering a chance.

I like every song, from start to finish. It's tough for me to pick my favorite. Some of the songs have a Robert Plant (Led Zepplin) singing style, in which, I think, that Scott Wenzel does a fantastic job of not sounding like a copy, but instead shows that he's flexible with his own style. While you will not hear the guitar riffs, that the previous CDs have given us, the guitar is very good, by Barry Graul. Drums are solid with Mike Feighan, again, at the helm. Tracy Ferrie is the newer comer at bass.

From the first track, 'If You Believe, till the last,'No Other Love'(A remake of Rick Cua's song), the song's are top-notch.

From the lightest song,'Angel's Disguise'(A ballad with solid acoustic guitar), to the hardest rocker,'Come Unto The Light'(A hard hitting rocker/I believe this song got a Dove Award), the song's are top-notch.

I think, this CD is their 2nd best, behind only their 'In The Kingdom' CD.

I didn't know that Rex Carrol had left the group by the time this came out considering I was just getting introduced to Christian Rock. However, this does pay off as the group's new sound is intoxicating. It starts off with "Frank" obviously trying to cop a Frank Sinatra sound-a-like before they get down to business with the challenge "If You Believe", and then they continue rocking with "Home In Heaven", and then they slow it down a bit with probably the closest thing to a hit with this album "Goodbye Creul World". These were some meaty cuts, and another one is "Salt City". I used to have this on cassette, and I've just purchased it on cd, and it still sounds as good as ever. Hopefully they will reunite some day as they disbanded in the late 90's. I'm sure there's still a world out there that needs to rock, and hear the word that's built on the rock.

Okay, it's not their highlight. For my money, I'd go with "High Gear" or possibly "In The Kingdom". But I did enjoy it. Once Rex Carrol left, the band's sound changed - and I'm sure they were trying to stay up with the changes in the music industry at the time when alternative/grunge/etc hit in the 90's.

Of the three post-Rex Carrol albums, this one, Flytrap & Equilibrium, this one is pretty good. I liked Equilibrium a little more and Flytrap is my least favorite Whitecross album overall.

Unveiled has a good number of good songs on it like "Goodbye Cruel World", and "Come Into The Light".

I personally think if you like Equilibrium, you will like this album as well.
