I have their CD 7-The Greatest Hits and you honestly can't tell the new songs from the old. They haven't lost anything. That said, I may grab the DVD, or rent it first. As for the CD, I'll get it sometime, but right now I have my sights set on Pillar's next CD "Where Do We Go From Here", I have an autographed copy on pre-order.
Kyle... I was able to see them this past november and I can confirm Mike can still hit the high notes. Granted he doesnt in every song, but it is only because if he did in every song every night his voice would be through.
Glad to see some people still interested in Stryper. By the way .. i called a local record store, and It seems this release may be hard to find. Its a small record label (can't remember the name). Just thought I would let you all know, just in case.
Just got the cd today. EXCELLENT recording! For those who are wondering mike does hit the high notes/screams at the end of the way (actually the last part of the scream sounds even higher than the album), soldiers, to hell with the devil, and makes me wanna sing. Hopefully someday there will be a new full length cd. Also, Stryper will be in florida (walt disney world), sept.10th of this year. Ticket info at stryper.com
Sorry just messin, I personally couldn't buy anything from these guys but I respect that they play there own instruments and all. Certainly better than these boy bands today right? Right? Who's with me!!
Ok.. I honestly think some of you need to grow up.If you don't like the band thats fine, but if not, why read the thread in the first place? they are a really talented group of individuals and I started this thread for people who would want to know about the new live CD and maybe discuss it a bit. Maybe its just me, but some responses are just uncalled for.
How's the sound quality? Was it recorded well? I might pick it up if it is.
Thread crappers need to be shot. First Nick in the thread about the new Rush album, and now this one. Cripes, if you don't like the band, don't read the thread. Many bands are discussed in the forum that I'm not interested in. I don't feel the need to be juvenile and laugh at someone who has different tastes in music. Grow up.
Sound quality is excellent. I'm usually very picky about live recordings (most of them, at least in the old days) tend to sound tinny. This CD turned out really well, and I should think would please any fans of the band... and the scream mike hits at the end of "The Way".. you just have to hear.. unreal.
If you pick it up kyle, be sure to give your thoughts. take care.
I have all their cds up to "Against the Law". Don't listen to them much, but I love live albums, so I would probably listen to it much more than those. Any chance any of the songs from "Against the Law" make it on the live album? That is my favorite album of all of them.
I used to be a fan. Can't say I like them or any metal anymore. My brother has this CD though and I listened to it with him a week or so ago. Quality was very good. A bit disappointing that they cut out the chit chat between songs that Michael did during the tour. My brother saw them live a couple of months back. I saw them twice on their To Hell With The Devil tour. They put on a great show even though they were dressed in those funky yellow and black outfits.
I forgot to ask if this was taken from one show or culled from many. John, I guess you answered that for me. I do like to listen to an entire show, warts and all. I guess that's why I collect bootlegs and don't collect official releases anymore.
This was primarily from the Atlanta show as Mike says a couple of times during the show. From what I hear some were taken from the Raleigh N.C. show (just a couple) but those are the only 2. Here is a track listing for those interested, and the albums they are from. 1.Sing along song (To Hell with the devil) 2.Makes me wanna sing (soldiers under command) 3.Calling on you (To Hell with the Devil) 4.Free (To hell with the devil) 5. More than a man (To Hell with the Devil) 6.Caught in the middle (against the law) 7.Reach out (Soldiers under command) 8.Loud 'N clear (yellow and black attack) 9.The way (To Hell with the Devil) 10.Soldiers under command ( Soldiers under command) 11.To hell with the Devil (to hell with the devil) 12.Honestly (to hell with the devil) 13.Winter wonderland ( reason for the season single) 14.Closing prayer
Some songs the performed were left off such as In God we trust (which had a new arrangement and was MUCH heavier) hopefully will end up on the DVD release which was recorded this year in puerto rico. Also you wont be lonely, something and for you were left off , the last two because of a deal with their prior company not to have the songs on any other release for a certian period of time.
