Leaning more towards the AOR side I'd recommend:-

 

John Elefante solo albums

Nouveaux ("Beginnings" album is awesome - very Def Leppard)

PFR ("Disappear" album is killer - like Nelson)

Steven Curtis Chapman

Petra (80's/early 90's albums only)

East to West (2 albums of killer westcoast - like Mr.Mister)

BRAVE - BATTLE CRIES might just be the best, if not the catchiest, Christian AOR release EVER. EVER is a very strong word, so do check it out!

NOUVEUX: "Beginnings"

PETRA: "Beyond Belief"

SILOAM: "Sweet Destiny"

STRYPER: "To Hell With the Devil"

WHITECROSS: "High Gear"

Now, if you're looking for stuff that's a bit more obscure, try these:

And last but not least, if you don't mind the modern-melodic or nu-metal stuff, these are all good purchases:

DISCIPLE: "By God"

JONAH 33: s/t

KUTLESS: "Sea of Faces"

PILLAR: "Fireproof"

Hope that helps!

 

Keep the faith.

I think the Sin Dizzy CD is titled "He's Not Dead." Don't quote me, however.

 

Petra - "On Fire" has been getting some play in my car lately, and it's very good.

Christian/White Metal? Only have a few and some are not that great like:

 

CONTAGIOUS - Free Indeed (Read the reviews - terrible voice but the guitar just smokes)

 

This is band is good enough:

 

WATCHMEN - Generation

 

The best that I've heard by far is:

 

WHITE CROSS (has the Greatest guitarist in Christian rock - Rex Carroll!!!)

ZION - Thunder From The Mountain (very good songs)

and of course

GUARDIAN

 

You've got mail. :)

You REALLY need to get hold of White Heart - Highlands.

 

A fantastic album. Unique.

 

A great album for sure but I think 'Tales Of Wonder' is even better. Don't forget The Brave's - 'Battlecries' aswell.

Yes, I've got the "Tales of wonder", and a friend of mine thinks as you do. Don't know why, but I think of it as just good, bordering on great, while "Highlands" has me dumbstruck. But, yes, that's definitely a question of preferences. :)
