Stryper is most celebrated Christian rock band there is. Anyone reading this most likely knows the impact that Stryper has had on the scene. From the soaring vocals of Michael Sweet, the guitar attack of Oz Fox to the visual timekeeping (a show all on its own) of Robert Sweet, this band plowed a lot of ground and few would debate their legacy or impact.  When the band reunited, the Christian rock community had massive reason to celebrate.  Stryper 2.0 was here.  Although many thought that Stryper's first album back would be the next To Hell With the Devil or In God We Trust album. What we actually got was something altogether different.  Stryper was Reborn. After Reborn dropped in 2005 most were just thrilled for something new, however some had complaints that it wasn't the same ole Stryper. I for one am glad that we aren't still living with Blockbuster, MySpace, AOL, Netzero, Buicks, and flip-phones. I'm glad we've evolved and so should music. In my book, Stryper did it right. They reinvented themselves.  Reborn and Murder By Pride are quintessential Stryper history in the making and now in Gold Disc they are the quintessential releases to own.  Remastered with a free LTD collectors card included, Reborn, Murder By Pride and The Covering are a collectors dream. Both Reborn and Murder By Pride come with 12 page booklets and The Covering comes in a 8 panel fold out poster.  All 3 come with reversible full cover if you prefer not to display the gold border side.

Excellent album

I love this album. In fact I even bought a second to give away. They did an awesome job with the covers they selected to do here. Standout is Highway Star by Deep Purple.


Great album and amazing job on the reissue! Girder records rocks!!!
