New Stryper Album

Recommended Posts

WOW - no one else agrees with me :unsure:

 

I thought the drums were just awful sounding

 

I raley have to mess with my EQ, however with Reborn I must.

 

I love the songs, it just that the "raw" sound didn't do it for me.

 

I know I'm not the only one, as I remember when Reborn came out production was a big complaint/concern. In fact, if memory serves correctly, Michael even responded in the Styrper forums as to why the production, or lack there of, sounded the way it did, by choice.

 

Either way its all up to individual ears to determine for themselves :banger:

 

Still can't wait for the new stuff!

Yep, it's as polished as IGWT but more balls. I don't see the debate.

I disagree, Reborn has all the levels pushed too high as is typical with a lot of music in the last few years. levels and compression are pushed far higher in production than they ever used to be. Dynnamic reange is completely lost.

Take a read on this

Hmmm...never said I didn't like it or enjoy it. In fact I think its a great album. I just feel the production was lacking

I guess differing opinions are not allowed here :unsure:

We are just not used to someone being even fussier!

Yes, what I said was in jest. I'm not upset that no one agrees with me (which isn't usually the case :D )

 

I just remember getting Reborn, popping it in, and going agh, the drums sound like crap, and the production not as good as Michaels solo stuff.

 

I am a HUGE Stryper fan and have been from the start. As I have said before the songs on Rebon are great, just not liking the "pots and pans" drum sound and how far pushed into the front of the mix they are, thats all. Its a small price to pay to have my favorite band back together making music again :guitbannana: Can't wait for the new stuff!

Really? I've been called many things in my life, but never that. What am I fussy about?

Never said that at all. I hate their lyrical content, hate the sappy ballads, hate Sweet's voice on those pussy ballads, but I quite enjoy some of their early harder rocking material. Granted, there is more filler than killer in their early work, but there are some killer riffs and great sound/production. Not my fave band ever by any stretch, but I don't mind a decent portion of their work.
