Ex-Stryper lead man Michael Sweet embarks on his solo career with "Special thanks to Jesus for giving me another chance." Well, his personal faith may have been through the tumble dryer recently but certainly the effect on his music has been all positive. Sporting one of the most distinctive voices in rock and with some fine AOR tracks this is a blistering album of anthemic stadium rock. Excellently produced, full of all the things you'd expect; easily accessible rollercoaster harmonies, multi background vocals, piercing guitars and endless driving percussion. Sweet!
