This is a really great album. Kind of short tho.

Glam isn't a type of music. Besides Glam was in the 70's. This is a Hair band. Hair isn't a music style either. This is a Metal Band! 80's Metal to be exact. This is their debut and it ROCKS HARD with HARMONIES! AWESOME! Raw sounding distortion. A must for any Metal Christian. ROCK ON! http://stations.mp3s.com/stations/53/heavynly_metal.html St. Hood st_hood@hotmail.com

A very good release! Stryper shows its stripes as a Heavy Metal band, playing driving, edgy music with monster riffs (especially at the beginning of songs). Production's good, too, which pleasantly surprised me. YABA, SUC, & THWTD are the staples of my diet as a Stryper fan. This is a short disk - but, to be expected for a first release. Though it didn't break any ground musically (except in CCM), it showed they had the chops to play alongside any metal band on the West Coast.

If there's a better mid 80's metal song than Co'mon Rock, I don't know about it. That song alone is worth the price for this gem. This is still among Stryper's best records. (Check out Guardian's cover version of this record too. They stayed true to the original, but made it a little heavier.) You could tell by the lyrics though that they were new Christians when they wrote it because of the lyrics are just not right. But that's okay, I listen to this one for the metal, not the words.

I still have the cassette of the first pressing of this album, with the original cover (with the missiles heading towards earth, and God's hand pointing the way...) I greatly prefer the mix on this original version than the 'remixed' one that came out a few years later wtih the different cover. If only someone would re-issue this version on CD! I loved this album so much at the time I even bought the T-shirt!

Probably runs a close second for this group's best album. This is a classic group to which Christian rock will be compared to for a long long time. This album is very strong and I'd recomend it to anyone!

Check out the Stryper tribute alubm, The Yellow And Black Attack Is Back. AWESOME

I thought that the lyrics lacked a certain depth and the production sound reflected the fact that this was their first album.That being said this a great christian album.Fun, fast and you could hear the potential.

Tom, could you tell me what you meant with 'the lyrics are just not right'?
From: RONALD VARGASLI   (IP unknown) Date: March 11, 2004 at 14:42
NEEDLESS TO SAY...STRYPER WAS THE BEST CHRISTIAN BAND IN THE WHOLE WORLD! OZ, MICHAEL,TIM AND ROBERT ARE THE ENCARNATION OF THE HARMONY!ronvli@yahoo.es GREETINGS FROM COSTA RICA! QUE VIVA STRYPER!

i really like this album for a ton of reasons. first off, i love debut albums! this was a fresh band, jsut ready to rock the christian and main stream world. i lvoe the fire this album has, and the great message in the songs. yes this is a shorter album, but thats ok, not every album has to have 10 songs on it. on the FOX ROCK SCALE this album gets a strong 8.6 i still dont feel this was their best album, but a very very very good debut album. if you love hard fast metal, you have to check itout

Great album!!!!
From: Tom   (---.) Date: October 8, 2005 at 7:59
Alejandro - lyrics like 'you'll never be lonely anymore' while sounding good, aren't true. I know very, very few Christians (none really) who don't sometimes still feel lonely. In Reason for the Season, they sing that 'every day can be a holiday' when you know Christ. Again, live the Christian life for more than a year or two and you find out this is not true. That's what I was getting at. They were new Christians, and it showed in the lyrics.

Excellent album.True rock.

This is the album that got me into Stryper back in 84. Still a killer album.
