Stryper..Still Rockin' Hard

"Although Styper broke up in the early 90's due to changes in the music industry, "The Yellow and Black Attack" still remains a favorite of Stryper fans around the world.If you like this cd, I recommend the others by Stryper, as well as more recent cd's by ex-members of the band.Ex-Lead singer Michael Sweet went on to release a self-titled debut solo album, Real, and Truth. For a more mellow sound, I recommend Real, but for the true Stryper fan, Truth is a must have. Ex-Bass player Tim Gaines, and Ex-Guitarist Oz Fox, formed Sin Dizzy after their departure from Stryper. Their debut album, He's Not Dead, keeps the Christian message, but adds a modern, hard rock feel.Totally worth listening to!Ex- Drummer Robert Sweet, is now working on a new album with Valediction.From what I hear, it promises to deliver great things.Give Stryper a try, they still have alot of great hard rock in them! Don't pass up these four very talented and inspirational musicians."
Christian Rock that rivals secular 80's metal
(4 out of 5 stars)
"While some may think of Christian Rock as limited to Michael W. Smith & De Garmo & Key, some of us remember a band that was set apart from those groups, that came out & shocked Jimmy Swaggert and the Christian music world in general. Before DC Talk, before Circle of Dust & DigHayZoose, there was Stryper. In their debut album "The Yellow & Black Attack" Stryper speaks boldly of their faith in Christ through songs like "Loud & Clear" & "From Wrong to Right" with lines such as..."Why lose when you can win? Give God a try, the devil's not your friend. The truth is not a lie!" Stryper truly opened the doors for MANY Christian rock bands to walk right onto the scene , from alternative bands like Dead Artists Syndrome to Grindcore bands like Vengeance & Mortification. So if you enjoy "80's-sounding" (kinda pop-y) & you'd like to hear the Christian band that actually beat-out Bon Jovi at #1 on MTV with "Honestly" (off To Hell With The Devil) buy this one & enjoy!"
A true metal classic

"Those of you who had more strict parents might be able to relate to this. When I was about 10 and I was getting into metal for the first time, my parents were paranoid about the messages in metal and wouldn't let me buy other bands that I like (i.e; King Diamond, Motley Crue). But because of Stryer's reputation they allowed me to get this album. And what an album it turned out to be... The whole band is rock solid in every department. The songs are all classics, and there is a passable amount of hard stuff here. Admittedly, I would sometimes fast forward (we didn't have CD players back then) past some of the ballads, but it was worth it. I still bust this tape out from time to time and jam along with it on guitar. One of the best metal albums ever, says I."
