As a diehard music fan, one of the most satisfying trends of the past several years is that the bands I grew up listening to are enjoying a renaissance, and many of the albums we are getting from them are among the best they've ever made.
Recently, Queensryche returned with a fantastic self-titled album, Motorhead just put put the killer Afterschock, and today, Stryper releases their latest effort, No More Hell to Pay. After listenting throigh it a few times since its midnight relase, I can confidently say this album fits right alongside The Yellow and Black Attack, Soldiers Under Command and To Hell With the Devil.
There is no filler on this album, only huge riffs, screaming solos and Michael Sweet's amazing vocals. The band sounds tight, with Oz Fox, Tim Gaines and Robert Sweet all in top form. This is Stryper at its best, and it's worth your money.
