I think I'd prefer same old / same old. Not loving the chorus AT ALL.

Reminds me of the first time I heard Helloween's "Push." I didn't like it at first, but eventually it grew on me. I think this happens when you transition from the one being screamed at, to understanding why the screaming is happening, to identifying with the screamer, and then finally screaming along with it.

It's a complete pile of trash.

Michael Sweet can't seem to get over the fact that people don't equate Stryper with heaviness, and in his mid-life crisis, is trying pathetically to make himself something he never was. When you brag about only spending at most two weeks writing each of the two or three albums he's been putting out every year, this is the sort of dreck you wind up putting out.

Never listened to Stryper before, but I had to check this one out based on the dragging it's getting everywhere. It's alternately generic and really cringey. I will continue my streak of paying no attention to this band.

All for bands trying new things, but I clearly don't get this.

The one Stryper album I like as a guilty pleasure now and then is To Hell with the Devil. Some sweet, silky melodies there. Like a poppier, sappier Crimson Glory.

I was not really feeling this but I will give the eventual finished album a chance. The last two albums were all-around their best albums, IMO.

That chorus is like running full speed head first into a brick wall and just as enjoyable
