"Heat it up"- they sure do on this one!!
(4 out of 5 stars)

"These guys know how to rock out. Like most of their later albums, there's some serious blues-based groove going on in much of the disc. The songs are catchy and there's just enough slower and somewhat mellow songs. At times their sound is ZZ-top-ish which is definitely a good thing. They finish the disc with an excellent funky blues tune called "Fight Back" which always tempts me to relisten to again and again. I hate for it to end!! The musicianship of these guys is very impressive. I once saw them live in concert and got my socks knocked off! Ed DeGarmo is a top notch keyboardist. Dana Key has some awesome guitar pickin' abilities. Tommy Cathey is always solid on his bass. And as far as I'm concerned, I consider Greg Morrow to be one of the best drummers out there today. He seems to know exactly what the song needs every time. If there's a weakness on the album, I'd have to say that the vocals can be a tad annoying like on "Talk To Me." But for the most part, I really like Key's vocals. DeGarmo throws in some fine vocals too in "We Use the J Word." I rated this disc 4 stars, but I think 4.8 is more like it. My slight annoyance of some of the vocals keeps me from giving it 5 stars."
Even Christians Can Rock; D&K present a vital message.

"I bought this in July 1993 and have really grown attached to this CD. The message of new life in Jesus shines clearly in all of the lyrics, the songs are well produced and the band works together like a precision machine. 'God Good, Devil Bad' is a highlight, as are 'Never Look Back' and 'Soldiers of the Cross.'
I can almost detect a bit of Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore here, so any Deep Purple fans out there might want to give this a listen. I saw D&K live at a show in Tulsa in the fall of 1981 and was impressed; the only better live show I've seen was Eric Clapton in Hartford in 1985."
