Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thank You Petra!  Feb 14, 2006
This is not a review of the album, even though I have it and enjoyed it. It is a personal note saying, "Thank You" for Petra's ministry through the years.

Like many Petra fans, their music and songs have encouraged, comforted and challenged me all these years. God has indeed used them to minister to His people. Their uncompromising Chrisitan faith is clearly expressed in their lyrics and their lifestyle.

There are many songs even now my wife and I listen and still being edified: such as "Grave Robber," "Godpleaser," "Annie's Song," "It is finished," "No Doubt," "How Long?" "Love," etc...

Their songs have left an indelible mark in our lives.

My wife teared when she saw the album, "Farewell." Their ministry will be missed. Their music will continue to echo in our hearts as we remember the journey of our faith.

Petra, thank you....
Legendary Christian act goes out rocking!  Feb 4, 2006
Through many lineup and sound changes, Petra has been a mainstay of the Christian music world for more than 30 years. Farewell captures one of the show's on the band's 2005 tour, its last before breaking up.

"It has been a privilege and honor to represent our Savior and participate in His Great Commission. We have nothing but thanks to God for all He has done," said PETRA founder, guitarist and primary songwriter Bob Hartman on the band's website (
This is an impressive album. Led by Hartman and longtime vocalist John Schlitt, the quartet returned to the hard-rocking sound that was its calling card for a decade. And boy, do they do it well. Schlitt, who joined the band in 1986 (he was in an early 1980s band, Head East, before) still has a fine set of pipes and uses it well. Hartman's guitar work is surprisingly agile and interesting, and the two relative newcomers -- Paul Simmonds and Greg Bailey -- provide a strong base. (I saw this lineup perform on the farewell tour and was quite impressed.)

Look for several tracks from the band's final studio release (2003's well-received, hard-rocking Jeckyl & Hyde) plus plenty of old standards, some done in a nicely-assembled medley. There's also the blessing of guest appearances by former vocalist Greg X. Volz (Schlitt replaced him) and former keyboardist John Lawry.

In all, this is a memorable farewell. And a sad one, too. There are very few Christian acts doing music a middle-aged white guy like me can appreciate. Now there's one less. *sigh*
An Appropriate Farewell!  Jan 31, 2006
This Farewell Petra is incredible. It has all of the Petra favorites, with their up-to-date crunch guitar sound! Whatever amount you pay, this CD is worth every penny!
What a way to close 33 years of ministry!  Jan 23, 2006
I first began listening to Petra about 20 years ago when John Schlitt (former Head East vocalist) joined the band. They had just released Back to the Street, their first studio album with Schlitt on vocals. Shortly afterward, I went back and began listening to Petra's previous releases from the Greg X. Volz era. Just as the band closed one era with the release of a live album (1985's Captured in Time & Space), they have closed thirty-three years of music and ministry with a second live album. Farewell showcases many great highlights of Petra's history with a little something for Petra fans of all ages. It was great to have Volz and former keyboardist John Lawry return along with founder guitarist Bob Hartman to perform in this farewell show. The acoustic set with Volz and Schlitt together is great! The 80's were my favorite era with Petra, with albums like Never Say Die, More Power to Ya, Not of This World (from the GXV era), and Back to the Street and On Fire (with Schlitt). My favorite album from the Schlitt era of Petra is 1990's Beyond Belief. Some of my favorite highlights on this CD include Dance, Creed, Beyond Belief, and He Came, He Saw, He Conquered as well as the keyboard solo and the acoustic set. Farewell is a fitting send-off, a great end to thirty-three years of music and ministry which Hartman & Co. have shared with us through God's leading. Yes, I miss the band and the excitement of a new Petra studio album coming out, but this live CD makes a great collection of musical memories which any fan can treasure forever.
Disappointing all around  Jan 18, 2006
You'd think that any band around for over 30 years would have built up some "classics" or incredible band chops. This isn't -- and wasn't -- the case with Petra, at least with this, their final recording. (Their earlier live recording, "Captured In Time and Space" is equally bland, sound-wise. And it has 2 Cds worth of music!)

Any live album needs a "reason to be." Extend or revisit the songs, play some new songs -- anything but DON'T just play the exact same song live that we heard in the studio.

Unfortunately, that's what Petra does on their live "Farewell" CD. The only "new" song is an excellent version of "Amazing Grace" and the only (slightly) reworked song is "Beyond Belief." This song's keyboard lead has been replaced with a guitar so this pleasant pop-rocker has a bit more "growl" to it so it sounds different.

Everything else, you've heard before. Note for note. And it sounds MUCH better in the studio.

And what's with the "muddy" sound? And why doesn't Bob Hartman, a talented writer and guitarist, step out with some more lead guitar work, expanding and reworking the songs? Instead, he does a 60 second "solo lead" that goes nowhere. Not sure why they did that -- same with a "silly" keyboard solo that "chirps and squeaks" the name of Jesus to the crowds amusement. Huh?

There is a DVD of this farewell concert coming out in March. Perhaps "watching them" will be more exciting to listening to them.

Thanks, Petra, for more than 30 years of ministry and music. This farewell couldn't come a minute sooner.
