By Trent J. Thomason on May 2, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Greg was the former lead vocalist for the legendary christian rock band, PETRA and released this debut solo effort in 1986. John Lawry (Petra's keyboardist at the time) provides a brilliant keyboard solo on one track, "Joyous Grave." The album is exceptionally produced and contains 10 solid rock tracks. Also making guest appearances are vocalist Matthew Ward and guitarist Phil Keaggy.

The cassette that I bought when the album was released has been worn out for years which is proof of just how great it is. Amazon's comment about this CD being hard to find is not, necessarily, the case. (...)

This is a great disc. Any young believer can benefit from the Godly themes on this album. The message is delivered in a tight and aggressive musical style. Greg's voice is unique and, on this album, dynamic. I went to a local used CD store and found a copy on cassette for 50 cents. I guess that will have to do!

There's probably not much doubt that Greg X Volz was one of Christian rock's best singers ever. This album is evidence of that I think. For my tastes there's not a bad song on this album. The music is a big 80's sound filled with synthesizers and arena sized power playing.

The sound of Volz's stint with Petra is still here with hints of The Police, Styx, and Journey--those types of sounds. This is an album with high energy and full of praise for God. A modern sound for modern Christians.

This album makes my soul rock and my spirit soar.

Greg's voice was perfect through this whole album. Jimmy Lee Sloas is one of the best bass guitarists out there. Phil Keaggy did some tracks and he is THE best guitarist out there. The production values are so good on this album that anyone can appreciate it. From the first song "Barrier", it just pulls you in and you will want to play this album all the time.
