Here are two of my favorite tracks (complete) showcasing the variance in style across the tracks on the album, the first being heavier somewhat power-metallish, and the second a ballad... that goes to 11. :lol:

Not loving any of those samples, but I'm sure I'll check this one out. Just sounds like a lot of the mid-range bands in the genre at the moment. I hope I'm wrong, but we'll see...

I must have bailed on the second sample a bit early, because I do actually really like the ballad.


If I'm being honest, I basically hate this album, but there are three really great songs amidst the un-melodic horseshit. I love 'Better angels,' 'Rose in bloom' and 'Falling star.' Three very good melodic rock songs/ballads, which almost remind me a bit of The Magnificent.


The rest? Just fast paced pointless hard rock / metal with choruses and "hooks" that blend into the verses of nothingness. There are decent hooks in 'Whispered dreams' and 'Chasing the light,' but the verses are so shitty and mind numbingly boring that the worth of any hook is kind of lost by the time they come around.


I really don't understand bands that obviously have an ear for melody yet chose to release 70% of an album almost completely devoid of melody. And alternatively, if you're a band hoping to create shitty throwaway music devoid of melody; cool. Go for it. But what makes them decide to put that one or two songs in the mix, which might actually be considered good by people with an ear for melody?


I just think to make it easier, cater to one audience and stick with it. I find it very frustrating; bands who come across really confused with what they want to be.

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.            
  • Create New...
