If there ever was a christian Racer X band then Soldier would be it. The guitars scream shred just like Racer X. All the songs are either good or great. The Definitive Collection combines two demo albums and two tracks recorded for a various album. Each one has different quality but the all the songs rock. Firstly, there is Babylon which opens with the highly energized Louder Than Hell.the track is bold and unashamed rocks hard while being bold about the christian message. Alot like Racer X.

Alot like Racer X speed and shred is whats its all about. The next couple of tracks provide the same vibe but slightly slower. Each has its unique twist and bold message. One Of A Kind descibes our relationship like a romantic relationship that never changes. To me One Of Kind was the first story driven song that lyricaly caught my attention. The next one was Where Have All The Children Gone. The song opens acousticaly much like Babylon did and doesnt take long to blow you away.

Its message about the importance of life quite beautifully portrays a woman hurt over the loss of her child and the void in the school yard that should be full but is not. The solo is slow classical and unique to the album. Next comes King Of The City which like Priceless Heart appeals to a grunge audiance abit more. Many consider King Of The City to be Soldiers best song. I love it but it is closer to my 8th or 9th favorite song. Then comes Angel which is a ballad and is about a romantic woman.

Borderline speeds things back up and gives the album a Racer X feel again. Its my favorite Soldier tune. The guitars are loud the bass and drum are thomping and the chorus is catchy as anything. If you like Paul Gilbert give Borderline a chance. A couple of other tracks contine the album and ends Babylon on an awesome note. The comes the redone Borderline and Tears. These two tracks are incredible. Borderline never sounded better and Tears is the easiest song to sing to on the entire album.

Following Tears comes the one of the fastest guitar songs that ive ever heard. If anyone relaeses a youtube video showing me how to play Heart Of Stone ill buy them a $15 Itunes card, i mean it. The song is a pure shred tune that i honestly believe Paul Gilbert would enjoy playing live. Then comes Somebody New which is another fan fav and like Tears is so easy to sing to. And then comes a redone Angel which its sweeter than its original.

The live tracks are a great bonus and worth the asking price alone. Glory And Honor was never studio recorded so its a cool bonus. Heart Of Stone live is another sweet live track and Rick Hunters 2 minute lead solo is awesome! Bottom line Soldier is a band that shoulve been signed and this cd shows the pur talent of a band that should have been the next Stryper.
