I think this cd should be brought back out.
From: james   (IP unknown) Date: July 13, 2001 at 8:02
sounds like a little of whitesnake. a little of def leppard and a whole lot of AC/DC
From: Pastor Larry   (IP unknown) Date: November 9, 2001 at 23:16
'Livin on the Edge' is still one of my top ten fave songs. The rest of the album was alright artistically but rather 'lite' spiritually.
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: December 22, 2001 at 12:17
One of the great 'air guitar' records of all time. I've had it since it first came out and it still gets spun fairly regularly. I agree with Pastor Larry, 'Livin' On The Edge' is a classic.
From: Tom   (IP unknown) Date: March 26, 2002 at 2:37
One of the best albums ever in Christian metal!! Take 5 parts AC/DC, 2 parts Cinderella, 2 parts Def Leppard, and 1 part Whitesnake and you have X-Sinner on this record. 'Livin' On The Edge' is the best song. However, every song on here is a winner. I esp. like Walking Evil, Lift Him Up, Steppin on Toes and Get It. But every song is good, no ballads...ahhh, if you love great melodic hard driving guitar metal in the 80's style, you must get this CD!
From: Jeff   (IP unknown) Date: April 3, 2002 at 9:46
I don't like this record very much. The guitar was pretty good. but the vocals were incredibly hard to decipher the lyrics and I hear very little spirituality in what lyrics I could make out. My opinion-not worth your time
From: LiveWire   (IP unknown) Date: June 26, 2002 at 19:03
This tape rocks! It does sound like ac/dc and Def Leppard, but sounds more like ac/dc. 'Living On The edge' sounds like Def Leppard. A must have.
From: Ty   (IP unknown) Date: August 9, 2002 at 18:29
Not very 'bold,' lyrically, compared to albums from Bloodgood, Whitecross and Stryper. But don't let that scare you off, unless you demand in-your-face Christian lyrics. The nuggets of Truth are easy to spot. I saw these guys 'live' on the 'Get It' tour, and they were VERY much 'on-fire' for Jesus! Straight-up, hard-hitting rock 'n' roll, with all the attitude you could want!! Sound good? Then do what the title says and 'Get It!' 9/10

Where are these guys now? I worked with Mike B at In-Red Studios (during the *yechhh* Slayer occupation.....yea we prayed and even anointed their studio for God's work to be done.....wonder if they ever knew) and, feeling nostalgic, decided to see if his band was still out there. Last I could find was a reference to 2001. Is Mike still drumming for them? Is Ebay the only place to find their albums? I would like to hear them again. Rick P.

X-Sinner released an album of old demos and unreleased tracks in 2001 called LOUD & PROUD. Greg Bishop, Rex Scott and Rob Kniep have recorded an alternative album under the name Angry Einsteins that hasn't been released yet. Check out www.x-sinner.com for some info.
From: MetalGeek   (IP unknown) Date: December 19, 2002 at 17:19
UPDATE! The new album by X-Sinner's alter-ego band 'ANGRY EINSTEINS' is out now, it's called 'Cracked!' Woo hoo! I'm getting a copy ASAP!
From: Rob Kniep   (IP unknown) Date: December 31, 2002 at 6:35
Hi, This is Rob Kniep form the band X-Sinner. I am a little biased but I like all of X-Sinners music! Rock ON! The Angry Einsteins cd is out now but unfortunately there are no more copies of the Loud and Proud cd, they sold out and are not making any more that I know of. To all of you that gave us a good review... Thanks! You can also send each band member email via the website at: www.x-sinner.com Thanks Again Rob Kniep X-Sinner / The Angry Einsteins

Hi, Bought the tape when it came out back then. Heard a really lot of music since I followed the scene way back from when Bloodgood, Stryper, Barren Cross and Jerusalem opened up the metal scene for Christian Music. And still this recording is on of my absolute favorites. What a voice! Only very, very, very few bands manage to come close to the musical qualities of bands as Van Halen, AC/DC and Whaitesnake. On this album, X-Sinner succeeded and sometimes even leaves them behind!. Too bad it's th

i would just like to say that this album is an absolute clasic, i love it and it gets played very regularly. X Sinner is third on my list of my all fave bands behind Stryper & Tourniquet. X Sinner rox!!!!!!!
From: Travis Aker   (IP unknown) Date: June 22, 2003 at 1:24
I would just like to say that X-Sinner CD Get It is just the best cd that I ever brought off of ebay. I used to be a huge fan of ACDC when I listen to secular music back in the day. This band fills in the void. I wished I could have brought this band's cd when it first came out in Christian bookstore back in the late 80's and early 90's when it came out. Jesus rocks!!! Peace
From: Buster   (IP unknown) Date: July 15, 2003 at 1:23
Ya they sound just like AC/DC but its so good. I really like this CD wish the 2nd one sounded like the first.
From: iaffprofireman   (IP unknown) Date: November 29, 2003 at 0:11
Also sounds alot like the group Kix, their sound was very similar right about the same time this came out. Yeah, kind of a cross between AC/DC and Kix, I'd say. Very, very good group. Hard rocking. Really love the song Lift Him Up.
From: Bob   (IP unknown) Date: November 29, 2003 at 18:39
Great record! If you like AC/DC with a harder edge, this is the album to get. The first time I heard him sing was on Mastedon's 'It's A Jungle Out There' ablum, he sings the title track and really belts out the lyrics. For those AC/DC fans out there, what makes this really different is that you can make out most of the words. That and it's Christian hard rock. I definitely suggest this record to everyone.
From: Fat Freddy   (IP unknown) Date: December 1, 2003 at 16:03
I'd say Kix are a very good comparison for this band... both have the hard driving guitar tempos borrowed from AC/DC. Both of X-Sinner's studio albums REALLY need to be reissued on CD. Any smart label guys out there reading this? You could make a killing just off the people on this board (including me)!
From: Salomonkey   (IP unknown) Date: May 12, 2004 at 21:19
Excellent rock and roll album, great guitars and a peculiar vocalist voice. Livin' on the Edge my favorite.
From: GroovyLime   (IP unknown) Date: September 3, 2004 at 19:00
Awesome album. One of my all-time favorites. Get it.
From: Ross G Brown   (---.dcc.govt.nz) Date: October 29, 2004 at 19:43
I've been trying to find the get it album for 7 years with no success, but now hopes are looking high. I love this album, & i wish it would come into circulation so i can buy it! I enjoy every song on the album. I WANNA GET IT!!!
From: Stu   (---.lan.jcnth.naxs.com) Date: November 3, 2004 at 10:02
I've had this CD for quite some time now. I am glad I did because it is getting harder & harder to find. I think this is one of best debut CD's in Christian Rock/Metal. The AC/DC sound is what drew me to this CD. The production & musicianship is top notch but it is to be expected from the Elefante Brothers. My favorite songs are: Medicine, Living On The Edge & Lift Him Up. If you can find this CD get it, you will not regret it.
From: Paul Edwards   (---.nycap.res.rr.com) Date: July 29, 2005 at 19:16
Excellent. Most listeners will immediately compare it to AC/DC's 'Back in Black' album, but several songs (especially the title cut) sound more like AC/DC's later 'Fly on the Wall' album. My favorite track is 'No Way In.' There's not a weak track on this album. The lyrics aren't exactly complex, but really, are Stryper's? It is what it is -- a Christian alternative to AC/DC. I love it!
From: Russ   (---.client.mchsi.com) Date: September 16, 2005 at 19:49
Livin' On The Edge is a solid hit. I have this CD and only listened to it once. But, Livin' On The Edge really stood out for me after one listen.
From: Jared   (---.dial.sasknet.sk.ca) Date: February 15, 2006 at 23:41
X-Sinner is working on new music for 2006 with Rex Scott on vocals. If this album comes out it should be a big hit. Get ready X-Sinner fans. My favourite song is Get It on this album.
From: gadomody   (---.coherentinc.com) Date: March 15, 2006 at 13:41
I have never been able to get into this cd. It sure does rock but some of the lyrics are just plain stupid. Medicine is idiotic. Robbins just repeats the same phrase over and over again throughout the whole cd. It's just another one of those 'Christian' bands that wants to sound Christian but is afraid to say the name of Jesus Christ. What is the point without Christ?
From: MetalForJesus   (---.) Date: November 17, 2009 at 7:48
X-Sinner is back again! They have a new album out and are playing gigs. Found out more at www.x-sinner.com
