Album Review

When the majority of Christian artists were going unheard in the secular market, Stryper became even more visible among non-Christian audiences with its third album, To Hell with the Devil. This was the first time a Stryper album went platinum — something the headbangers' presence on MTV no doubt played a role in. And the fact that this album boasted Stryper's strongest writing up to that point didn't hurt. The southern Californians sound especially confident and inspired on "The Way," "Sing-Along Song," "More Than a Man" and the infectious title song. But as invigorating as the up-tempo numbers are, Stryper's ballads didn't improve a bit; "All of Me" and the hit "Honestly" are as annoying as ever.

Sweeeeet...

For all of the spandex, Bible chunking, and hairspray, this band was good! I remember well a concert in which I was awestruck at the talent of these four guys. I personally believe that Stryper gained an audience, not because of their beliefs, or because of their looks, but because they played good songs with great skill. I match up the vocals and instrumentation of this album with any like it during this era. Mike Sweet can wail and whisper with uncanny precision. Oz Fox could work a fretboard with skills any shredder would kill for. Tim Gaines, perhaps the most accomplished musician of the bunch, was a quiet force that provided a solid bass line. And Robert... What can you say? Robert Sweet IS rock and roll and anyone who has seen them in concert knows excactly what I mean. "To Hell..." is nostalgic, it's novel, and it's 80s. But whatever you do don't dismiss this album as a nostalgic 80s novelty. This album is outstanding.

Satan doesn't own all the good music!

No matter what gets said about these guys I've known my share of true Rock fans that really did like Stryper because they were a good solid Metal band. I personally don't and didn't go much for the metal, big hair phase that Rock went through during the 80's. Even my favorite band KISS didn't do much to impress me much during that time. But Stryper was somehow different and not just with their message.

Stryper Rocks! End of story!

I can remember when I first heard this band on TV back around 84 or 85. They rocked then and they still rock today. My favorite song Sing-Along-Song is still as catchy as ever. It totaly gets stuck in your head. My wife had never heard it before and I cought her singing along right from the start. I loved this album when I was a kid and now that I am 33 I love it for so much more. They truly are the origional christian Hair Band let alone contemporary christian rock group. They broke ground for all the others to come. LONG LIVE STRYPER!!! LONG LIVE CHRIST!!! ROCK ON!!!

Heavy metal has been associated with ol' Beelzebub ever since its inception, but a few acts took the opposite route and put their Christian beliefs in hard rocking songs, such as Stryper.
