Editorial Reviews

Stryper is one of the top Christian rock bands of all-time, and certainly the most celebrated Christian metal band of all time. Comprised of Michael Sweet (vocals/guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass), and Robert Sweet (drums), Stryper has been rocking since 1983 and is responsible for such 80s
metal classic albums as Soldiers Under Command, To Hell With The Devil, In God We Trust, and such MTV hit singles/videos Calling on You, Free,
and Honestly. The band is now back with the original lineup and offers a fully re-recorded best of collection including two brand new songs, From Inside Out and Blackened.

Stryper shocked the world in the early 80's with their yellow and black spandex, distorted guitars, and long hair. I'll never forget the first time a saw a photograph of them. My buddy flipped open a copy of Campus Life magazine and I was stunned. "Christians can't look like that," I thought. So I thought! Who would have dreamed that we would still be listening to Stryper almost 30 years later!

I first saw Stryper, live in 1984 at the Paramount Theater in Seattle. Honestly, it might be one of the best shows I've ever seen. Back then, the boys in yellow and black were in their twenties. This year, Michael Sweet will turn 50. His voice keeps getting better. I may be a bit biased since he's been one of my favorite vocalists for most of my life! And he has finally established himself as a first-rate guitar player.

In those days, Stryper shows were picketed by the modern-day Pharisees. Jesus called these folks"blind guides" and "whitewashed tombs." He had some strong words for those religious leaders: "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves." (Matthew 23:15, ESV)

2,000 years later, the Pharisees are still at it, but they've found other people to hurl their insults at. I remember feeling a certain amount of hostility as a young person who watched these religious zealots parade up and down the sidewalk with their goofy homemade signs. But the more I watched, I felt sorry for them. They were not only missing out on some great music; they were belittling the ministry of some guys were serving God and encouraging thousands of people.

This has been a long time coming! Stryper revamp some of their very first hits and reaffirm why they are the fathers of Christian Heavy Metal. The drums are heavier, the guitars are blazing, and the vocals soar just as high as Michael Sweet's youth only with a heartier maturity. I had a huge smile on my face as I noticed the subtle changes that breathed new life into these oldies. The two new songs hold their own as well. "Bleeding..." has raw energy that will leave you headbanging to the ground. It's Stryper's way of proving they can also make great power ballads. "Blackened" is more of an anthem. You know, the one whose Chorus you just can't get out of your head all day? Stryper is kind of great at that.

TL;DR - This is a MUST for Stryper fans and Heavy Metal fans in general!

Most of the time when artists re-record songs its so they can get paid for songs they no longer own the rights too. Honestly, who can blame them? Usually these "updates" take a lot of liberties and move too far away from what made the songs great in the first place. I have no idea if Stryper owns their old recordings or not, but regardless, that is NOT the case with these new recordings. For the most part all they did was take the songs and bring them into today's standards for recordings. Basically, the same songs with much better sound. Almost more like a remastering of the songs. You could even call this an updated best of.

My only issue with this collection is one of my favorites, "Reach Out." The opening harmonies are just too different for me. I am hoping they will grow on me since I actually like the rest of the recording on this track.

The new tracks are also solid additions to the bands work, and far from throw away songs you sometimes get on these types of compilations.

If you like Stryper but sometimes can't jam some of their songs due to the quality of the older recordings, you should give this disc a try!

I'm a long time Stryper fan, have followed them closely again since Reborn, have seen them in concert twice since Reborn, have both Puerto Rico and Java DVD. It is almost an impossible mission for a band to redo their classics and expect people to consider them improved and preferred to the original. I think this is primarily because of the nature of how our brains/emotions work. The original is the standard and many times (technical/mixing issues aside) perfection since it defines itself as such. This makes the task of redoing them but better pretty much impossible by nature. Even with better mixing and improved technology, there is usually enough difference in other aspects to equate to a net-loss from the perspective of the listener to deem the remakes inferior. Such would be the case even more extreme if the two recordings were reversed in history virtually every time I suspect. Given this, Stryper had more than a herculean task ahead of them in order to come out ahead.

Having heard their remake of "IGWT" on Reborn and seeing them in concert recently, I knew they had it in them to achieve the near-impossible. They live shows have been very tight, heavier, and the guys obviously still have not lost their chops. In addition, I think they have matured musically since the earlier albums. For these reasons I was quite confident they would succeed with "Second Coming" and was quite excited about getting the CD.

I got the CD last night and put it in the car for a listen this morning. The first song "Loud N' Clear" is one of my favorites so the critic in me was full on from the start. The intro and outro are my favorite parts of that song. When I heard the new version on this CD, I was immediately bummed that the lead guitars were not as prominent as on the original.
