Item Description...
For those of you who never left 1985, a time when metal bands had big hair, singers reached for the highest note, and drummers twirled their drumsticks between beats, I bring good news: Stryper is back! Then again, after listening to the "comeback" release Reborn, it sounds like they never left. And while the yellow-and-black spandex may be gone, the vocal theatrics of Michael Sweet remain in tracks like "Make You Mine," "Rain," and "When Did I See You Cry." The band updates its sound some with the edgier "Open Your Eyes" and on the title track. "10,000 Years" is another curiosity as Sweet takes lyrics from the timeless classic hymn "Amazing Grace" and wraps them around a metal rave-up. But for the majority of this release, they'll be no mistaking the guitar riffs of Oz Fox, let alone the tin-can, rat-a-tat-tat drumming of Robert Sweet. New bassist Tracy Ferie capably locks down the rhythm section as a successor to original bass player Tim Gaines. Otherwise, it all seems to be frozen in time. If you never left the 80s, you'll love Reborn. Break out the Aquanet and studded belt and live to rock another day with the original Christian metal band. --Michael Lyttle

why?  Dec 30, 2006
The good:Michael can still sing! The bad:everything else. I'm going back to 1987 if you don't mind.
reborn to the mid 90's?  Nov 19, 2006
Wow! Stryper has a new album out. Funny it sounds exactly like a cross between Saigon Kick and every other Nirvana inspired band of the 90's only not quite as good. Nothing to see here.. move along.

Seriously, I remember seeing Stryper in 1986-ish for the Soldiers tour and , even though they weren't my favorite band, I was still impressed with the musicanship of the band. In an age where most (if not all) Christian bands sounded EXACTLY like mainstream metal bands, these guys (while a little on the girly side) at least had their own sound.

This CD is horrid! The guitar work sounds like something a garage band would come up with as either a warm-up or an execercise and is definatly not up to par with some of the amazing work on Against the Law or Soldiers. The vocals.. well he seems to have stumbled on the effects section of the mixer manuals. They range from completly incoherant to the same effects that Dokken used on Disfunctional back in 1995. The drums are the most uninspiring thing I've heard in a while, was he awake when he recorded them? Straight time with little to no syncopation? As for the new bassist.. well anything he may have done is drown out by the deliuge of the rest of the band.

If you want to hear Stryper and get a feeling for some very good music go grab Against the Law or Soldiers Under Command. This CD would best be used as a coaster or possibly skeet.
Yellow and Black is BACK! ** 1/2  Nov 7, 2006
When I saw this on this site I couldn't wait to hear it. I really like when a great 80's band makes a comeback. Unfortunately most have issues rekindling the magic that once was. Or musically it ends up sounding dated. I wish I could say it's different here but it's not. I have to disagree with some of the other reviews here. I was hoping REBORN would start were "Against the Law" left off. A more "In Your Face" updated sound with lots of catchy hooks. Unfortunately it doesn't. For me "Against the Law" and "To Hell with the Devil" was their best work. This ranks just above "In God we Trust" which was kind of SOFT for my tastes. I've liked these guys since the mid-to-late 80's when I first saw them in concert. Great band and great music with a POSITIVE message. Musically there's just not much new ground being broken here. When I hear other reviews saying it's "Edgy" or more "Raw" like "Law" was, I think I must be listening to a different CD?? Lets hope this is just an appetizer for what's to come!
Stryper - Reborn  Aug 28, 2006
I've been a long time Stryper fan, so the new album has given me mixed feelings as it has alot of old fans.

Pros - The lyrics are well written; the band still plays great; album cover artwork rules; the music still has that signature Stryper melody; the band has updated into a raw, punchy sound; and the guys just look plain great!

Cons - I'm not too crazy about Robert's drum sounds; guitar solos are few and far in between; I very much dislike the "doowop" choruses they use in a couple of the songs; and the production needs to have a fuller sound the next time around.

Overall, the album is pleasing to us long time fans that have longed for the yellow and black attack to give us something new. That they have done, but hopefully they'll take the above criticism as being constructive.
Wailing and Rocking For Jesus  Jul 27, 2006
After a roughly fifteen year hiatus, God's yellow and black attack have returned. Stryper may only have hints of their glammy black and yellow-striped spandex lingering around, but their sound is still intact. With "Reborn," Stryper proves that a band, Christian or secular, doesn't have to stray too far from an old formula in order to work. Although there is a little bit more edge (a welcome change, in my opinion), this is still just good ol' fashion glam rock. Stryper is louder than ever, and secular contemporaries such as Poison and Ratt had best get out of their way. Just a glance at the cover proves that even a Christian band can make a statement just as garish and gory looking as the best serving of guys like Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails.

"Reborn" opens with "Open Your Eyes," perhaps the greatest departure from the Stryper of old on this album. However, it starts the album off with a bang and rolls right into the title track, which is a heavy hitter in its own right. "When Did I See You Cry" is next, with a heavy, hook-laden driving beat. "Make You Mine" and "Passion" slow things down a bit, but things pick right back up with "Live Again," another rolling rocker. The next three songs are listed incorrectly on the jacket and in the liner notes. All three are slower rockers, but nonetheless just as good as the rest of the album. There correct order is #7-"Wait For You," #8-"Rain" and #9-"If I Die." Next is "10,000 Years," a play on the traditional "Amazing Grace" that really sounds great. Finally, Stryper gives its old fans what they want, a re-working of one of their best old tunes, "I.G.W.T." It's louder and rougher than the original, but Michael Sweet's wailing vocals are still intact.

Of all the recent old hair/glam bands to reunite, Stryper seems to be the most promising of the bunch. Where bands like Warrant re-tooled their sound and bands like Bon Jovi dropped the rock-moniker all together, Stryper has evolved only slightly, maintaining their soaring vocals, driving drums and bass, and dueling guitars. They're probably the last big Christian rockers left from the 80's, what with Petra calling it quits recently and Whiteheart having departed in the mid-nineties.

Keep soldiering on, Stryper. Where most modern rock bands, both Christian and secular, have fallen into the trappings of emo and nu-metal, you're still grinding out that hairy metal and hard rock that I grew up on and still love.
