Customer Reviews

A great example or guitarsmanship.

While the late 80's and erly 90's are known for the amound of hair spray the guys in the heavey metal bands used once you get past the blown dried coff and the shiny suits and satin boots you can find a band headed up by Ken Tamplin doing his best to shine through in a brief preiod when a few Christian bands were able to reach mainstream success.

This release is upto and in most cases exceeding the charges of the mainstream hair bands of the same period including RATT, POSION, CINDERELLA, and MOTLEY CRUE while all these bands have their stong points Ken Tamplin with his friends is able to score on for the Lord with great guitars and great singing.

It is a rare treat to hear songs that in spite or regardless of the words you still can't get themout of you head. Take a listen to "Livin' for my Lord" and "Not Alone" for a sample of what I mean.

I have wanted for so long to get "Armageddon" as my ring tone. Listen and see if that wouldn't be a great one for that.

Tamplin is strong on the more mellow songs to including the "Bouree in E minor" and the "Saga"

If you are a real rock guitar lover of the hair band area don't pass this by or any of the earlier efforts from his other bands like "Shout" and :Magdallan."

"Share and Enjoy"

Rips your head off and pierces your heart

If you are into guitar based rock with AMAZING and inspired vocals, this is your album. This is the best of everything-vocals, song crafting, scorching guitar solos, and in your face drumming. The only thing that is better is the message - salvation through Jesus. Ken Tamplin is incredibly talented, as is the musicians he surrounds himself with to play truly inspired music. Open your heart and listen - you will discover their source of inspiration - Jesus.
