    Just curious if any of you have picked this one up yet. I just got it yesterday and am very happy with the two new songs on the album. They sound like i thought they would had they stayed together and continued making cds into this year. The remastered tracks (16 remastered tracks in addition to the 2 new songs) sound great as well. A very under-rated band. Hopefully people will appreciate how good these guys really are. Some AMAZING harmonies on this album.
    Of the two new tracks (both of them are rock songs and both are very good- "something" definately has a much harder edge to it) the song "something" is amazing and has some really crunchy guitar in it. Fans of the band should definately pick this one up. Hopefully this will lead to more full length albums in the future, but for right now, I'll take what i can get. [​IMG]

    picked mine up at paradise records... best buy should have it as well.. for some reason though they may have it under the rock category, while their others are in the Christian section. i would check both. If you don't see it there, i would ask. [​IMG]

    Tim. technically they arent still around. The record company called mike, and told him they were going to do a greatest hits cd.. Mike told them they already had done that before.. He had written two new songs shortly beofre the call, and he suggested those songs go on the cd for something new. So the guys all got together to do the two new ones. Hopefully if all goes well, there will be a full reunion sometime in the future. Kind of exiting hearing new stuff from them after 12 years. [​IMG]

    The Tim Gaines newsletter stated that Stryper had gotten back together to record a couple of new tracks for the greatest hits CD as well as play a few live dates. Tim told me that they have no dates scheduled for the US as of yet (well... he told me that about a month ago) but I am hoping. I've also read that the Live in Japan concert video is in the works for DVD as well.

    You can sign up for his newsletter here:

    Here is the official Stryper Web site (that is about to be revamped so there isn't much there at the moment):

    But there was this interesting little tidbit:

    Sounds good. Some of the older stuff actually sounds better on my system than the newer material.

    I really liked this band back in the day. Even with 18 tracks I felt they left some stuff off I would have liked, like "Sing Along Song" Still, a good representation of their work.

    Not a big Stryper fan, more a fan of Petra, 3rd Day and Jennifer Knapp but I do remember seeing a Stryper video on MTV in the 80's for their top 10 countdown.

    I think all of us are all waiting for someone to actually buy the album. [​IMG] Some might be too embarrased to admit that they are Styper fans. :b

    I lost respect for Stryper way back in 1987 or 1988 when they hosted MTV's Headbanger's Ball. The two guys on there acted like immature rock stars and didn't act all that Christian to me.

    well mark.. they did go through a time where they werent where they should have been in their Chsitian walk.. they have said that as well.. the importiant thing to remember is that they are human, and do make mistakes. I met them about 3 years ago, and they are humble people and are very much Christians.
