Overview

Veteran Christian metal outfit Stryper celebrated their 25th anniversary with Murder by Pride, an amiable 12-track collection of upbeat pop-metal on par with the group's early-'80s offerings like Soldiers Under Command and To Hell with the Devil. Vocalist/guitarist Michael Sweet's pipes have lost little in their transition from upstart faith-based twenty-something to seasoned hard-rocking worship leader, and his lyrics (though occasionally leaning hard on the cheese factor) are never overtly preachy, something that has always made Stryper one of the more accessible and legitimately fun acts in the notoriously sterile CCM genre. Murder by Pride stays true to the '80s hair metal template of ten rockers and two ballads, boasting at least three instant fan favorites in "4 Leaf Clover," "Eclipse for the Son," and the rousing title cut, as well as a choice cover of the Boston classic "Peace of Mind" featuring guitar work from Tom Scholz himself.

On my all-time list and that's rare for something so recent. Lots of well placed screaming and driving guitars. Alive is the best ballad written in last 20-25 years . . .

THE CD IS THE HOLY SPIRIT BREATHING THE LYRICS THROUGH THESE MUSICICANS. ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL VOCALS,RIVITING GUITARS,OVER THE TOP DRUMS. THIS IS A HIT CD WAITING TO HAPPEN. BUY AN EXTRA ONE AND GIVE IT AN UNBELIEVER AND THEY WILL BE PRAISING THE KING OF KINGS VERY SOON. THIS IS THE STRYPER ALBUM WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. THE HARMONY IS THERE ON VERY SONG. VH1 AND MTV SHOULD BE IN LINE TO PLAY MUSIC VIDEOS OFF OF THIS CD.
