Overview

A definite improvement over In God We Trust, the grittier Against the Law is not only a more consistently rockin' album, it's also much more focused and inspired. The CD's standout track is an imaginative cover of Earth, Wind & Fire's "Shining Star," which works surprisingly well in a metal/hard rock setting. But originals like "Rock the People," "Caught In the Middle," and "Ordinary Man" aren't anything to be ashamed of, either. Because many of the songs don't have overtly Christian lyrics, there was some speculation that Stryper, like Amy Grant, was going secular. But Stryper's members insisted that they were still very much a Christian band. And it's hard to imagine Mötley Crüe, Ratt, or Warrant recording a song like "Not That Kind of Guy," which finds Michael Sweet turning down the chance to have casual sex with an attractive woman because he doesn't consider it the moral thing to do.

I love "All For One". This CD is a great title for those into hard rock. Although this time Stryper does not sound the same as their other productions, yet they still pull off another great album in this one. This one is more impacting in lyrical style than any of their other albums,... with the exception of "To Hell with The Devil." Stryper will always be one of my all time favorites. Hope they come out with another album of tributes to past songs redone with their more matured voices. Now that would be incredible. Jesus loves all.
