|This is not a metal album. Its Petra-lite with a rocker or two. There are four (4!) ballads on this record! For a supposed 'metal' band, that is unacceptable. The title track is so formulaic; its just awful. The only decent songs are No Second Chances and We Know What's Right. Also, could the band rip any more off of Van Halen with 'Good Enough'?! Take 'Hot For Teacher' by VH and change the words and you have 'Good Enough'. The rap on 'Holy War' sounds terrible. Worst Whitecross record.

|After listening to 3 Whitecross CD's, I've concluded that they're one of the most overrated Christian bands out there. On each disk, out of 10 songs, only 3 are good ... the rest blow. Even Jesus would agree.

|This is a very good album with a good mixture of hard and slow songs. Please release your other albums in India. It would please all your fans here.

|Oh give me a break! In the Kingdom rocks! Every metal band has some ballads here and there, so let what was done be done! Love is Our Weapon is another good song too. I think this album is ONE of their best, out of a top 3.

|I think this was a respectable metal album, even if some think not! Although the drums and the rap could have been better but it doesn't take anything away from the fact that this was a cool album. By the way where are they? Anyone know their URL?

|Out of all the albums I've heard so far, this is one of my favorites of theirs. I like it better than their early material even. This album has great emotion and some good rockers. Lots of great songs and I like the ballads too. Sappy ol me...lol

|I think that this is their best album in songwriting and in production. Extremely thundering balanced sound, this is my favorite metal album out of all the christian & secular metal I've ever heard. This album also marks the best guitar work I've heard from Rex. Overall, I have NEVER heard any band that sounded like this. There are not too many bands that play this particular style of metal, reminicent of KIX. Where Triumphant Return highlighted the energy, 'Kingdom' highlights the production!

|Radio singles. Bigger budgets. Record executives breathing down their necks. Whitecross were selling albums now and had to become more radio friendly and more pop oriented. That's exactly what they did. A rapper and no less than four ballads. In my opinion this was always Whitecross' weak point. Their rockers were great but their ballads were so cheesy. Still there were rockers like No Second Chances & We Know What's Right. Despite my complaints about the commercialism, I really enjoy this CD.

|wow, a mixed bag of feed back on this album from alot fellow whitecross fans. when i first got this album, it was a great time of my life, so when i hear these songs i think of alot of great memories. they took it down a notch or 2 as far as their hard rock, metal goes, but they matured as well with this album. i disagree that their slow songs are cheesy, but to each their own. this is another great great great rock album, on the FOX rock scale, i give this a 9.4, love every song on there!!!!!!!

|Hey Cephas,You're being a lil'hard on the Whitecross boys,don't ya think?Haven't ya ever heard 'variety is the spice of life'?I like 'KINGDOM' alot.Of all the comments posted no one has mentioned 'The Eternal Fire',Rex's blistering solo intro to,'You Will Find It There',one of my all time favorite Christian blues songs.As far as whether or not Jesus would agree with you...He knows our hearts,including what motivates the members of Whitecross to go in a certain musical direction.Peace,bro!

|This is the cd that made me a Whitecross fan. Then I bought all of the their previous cds and future cds.. pre Rex and post Rex cds, too. ' You Will Find It There might possibly be my favorite all time Whitecross song and then how can any rock lover not love No Second Chances and Good Enough? I was playing Good Enough at work and some guy came walking in playing his 'air guitar '. He thought it might've been Van Halen. LOL! Compared to Whitecross.. Van Halen are a bunch of sissies! Rock On!

|... And by the way... Whitecross is suppose to have a new re-recorded cd called ' Nineteen Eighty Seven ' out right now. It's a totally new recording of their first cd with the same songs and better sound. A new song is on the cd called ' Love On The Line '. WOW! Scott and Rex and Mike back in the recording studio together! Did I say that I really liked the ' In The Kingdom' CD ?

|i do agree that there are too many ballads, but this is probably my favorite whitecross album...the heavy songs rock, and the ballads are good, but i wish the rockers out hnumbered the ballads...Carrol's guitar work is worth the price by itself!!!

|WC teamed up with Dez Dickerson and softened up a lot, perhaps too much with this album. Too many bland ballads and nothing like fans grew to expect. Although a before mentioned ballad In the Kingdom is a monster ballad/anthem. You have to hear it and imagine what it was like to hear live in the early 90's Dez would continue to influence their music but after this album the sound went a little rockier. This is definitely not a metal album.
