Big Bang stands out because of the major in-studio time and effort that Tamplin and Cordola put into the project. Too bad the mainstream deal never panned out. The album still rocks; especially on songs like "Radio Bikini."

This definitely stands out as one of the best Christian projects of all time. The collaboration between Ken Tamplin & Lanny Cordola still stands as one of the best produced projects in the Christian market--regardless of genre. This is a must have for all rockers!

A CLASSIC!! A collaboration between two of the most talented musicians and songwriters in music. Track for track, this CD is one of the best ever in Christian rock-n-roll. I especially like Radio Bikini, Love To The Rescue and House of Dreams. But every song on here is a winner. There's a lot of variety of instruments as Cordola brings in a sitar, saxophones, full orchestra, and just plain old acoustic guitars and harmonicas like around a campfire (Old Hard Line). Ken's vocals are excellent too.

An excellent album with greats songs like Radio Bikini,Wounded Hearts, Love to the Rescue, Big bang, House of Dream, etc. Very melodic...a must have album.

Overproduced, commercial pop metal/AOR. Lots of hooks, loads of talent, but way to clean and overproduced. Layer upon layer of vocals and overpolishing just robbed the rock n roll right out of this album.

What could go wrong with Ken Tamplin singing lead AND back-up for this band? Well...Ken Tamplin singing lead and back-up. This guy's range is definitely mid and he embarrasses himself here whenever he tries for the falsetto. Yikes! Not worth the time or money.

Good grief... this is the most over-the-top, over-produced, over-everything album I have ever heard in my life. It's like a combo of everything bad about hair metal, AOR, and progressive rock all stirred together in a big soup pot. The aim was probably to create a Christian alternative to stadium-rock like Def Leppard, but it failed miserably. I'll stick to Ken's Shout albums, thanks....

When Queen overproduces it is classic, When Ken does it they seem to hate it! I liked this album even though he really did rip a couple things off of his last solo album. Seriously though, Ken was better as a solo artist than when he teamed up with Lanny. BTW this is rock. A couple ballads are good as any for the day. Wounded Herat and House of Dreams are soda pop sweet but good songs. Really catchy guitar solos on this album.
