This debut unleashed guitar god Rex Carroll upon the Christian metal world and quickly lifted Whitecross to the top of the 'white metal' heap in the late 80s/early 90s. Carroll's rip-'em-up guitars combined with Scott Wenzel's piercing, Ratt-like vocals to create a Christian metal classic, one that no self-respecing sacred metalhead should be without.

From: Ty Date: November 9, 2001 at 8:56
This album is excellent! My most favorite album Whitecross released, and for me, there's not a disappointing track to be found!

From: Glammiemonster Date: May 8, 2002 at 5:30
I just had a nightmare that Ratt had started bible bashing. Then I woke up and it was Whitecross.

From: dokken6008 Date: May 18, 2002 at 4:45
Ha, ha. And I thought that the Brits weren't assholes.

From: doxa stix Date: June 17, 2002 at 17:02
I'm really impressed with the guitar ability and teh tightness this band.whitecross rocks.

From: Y.Olsen Date: October 18, 2002 at 16:42
Their best album. This is pure Whitecross, the way I love to hear them!!

From: Mike Date: December 18, 2002 at 18:25
One of my favorites from the 80's but I don't remember the cover looking like the one above. EXCELLENT guitar playing. Sounds a lot like Ratt but indeed better than Ratt. I saw these guys live on this tour and they were as good live as in the studio. One of the best Pure Metal releases ever.

From: Steve F. Date: February 8, 2003 at 22:10
An excellent release. Yeah, Scott Wenzel does his best imitation of Stephen Pearcy, but Rex Carroll's guitars blew every guitar player in CCM music (not to mention 900f all others) out of the water. A classic.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: April 1, 2003 at 15:13
RATT GOES TO CHURCH!!!.

From: magicmandala Date: July 24, 2003 at 17:28
I can hear some Ratt in his voice but also believe that there's also some Fastway in the voice too in certain songs. I just got the first 3 albums and they're a good addition to any hard rock collection.

From: christrocks777 Date: October 3, 2003 at 13:41
One of my fav. Whitecross albums,...with the shredding guitarsolos from Rex Carroll...this is the best white metal band ever. They continue to amaze me,...my first cd was In The Kingdom...with the melodic solos...just awesome...Too bad that Carol left the band after High Gear... I only like the 3 first albums...I have them all,but I only listen to the one with Carroll,where they still had the metalstyle.... For those we don't know them....'Get The Album,man.' Christrocks777

From: svein ronny hov Date: October 22, 2003 at 6:03
whitecross is the best group in the world....they ruuuuuuuules

From: Don Date: December 7, 2003 at 4:46
I saw these guys in concert when they were still playing in church gyms. My dad was one of the sound/video techs at one of their 1st concerts. I think we still have the video tape of the concert.

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 11:45
I remember seeing in, I think, Guitar magazine, Nov '87 if I remember right, that they predicted Carroll as the next axe master to challenge Yngwie for fastest hands. This album has a great Ratt sound with incredible guitar work. A must for both believers and non-believers. My ex-girl friend dated the drummer-Hedl after he left the band to attending Bible college in Chicago...even Christian stars get the girls.

From: davesworld Date: July 20, 2004 at 21:00
Love this album! Great sound and the Scott Wenzel sure can sing. I think that this is one of the best christian albums out there. I'd recommend it to anyone.

From: jack Date: August 25, 2004 at 7:09
Better tha ratt?i don't think so-ratt is a far better band but compare them two(different genre)-should be comparing them to stryper! Anyway,christian metal at its best!

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 8:22
Cannot stomach the lyrics but some pretty cool early hard rock songs. Just plain for me and ruined by the lyrical content. I know, I know, I'm best off then to get rid of it and I have long since done so. Cool hard rock CD but more one for the religious, I believe.

From: Leatherwolf Date: October 7, 2006 at 7:29
M.Allen and I seem to have very similar taste in music!I agree with most of his comments on the cd's that he rates and this one is no exception!This cd gets better with every spin, one of my favorites in fact!Highly reccommended to anyone who like bands such as Fifth Angel,Leatherwolf,Icon and the like.The guitar work is incredible, and the message just might save your life it did mine! Anyway enough preaching run out and get this cd!! DON'T STOP ROCKIN and God Bless

From: skonci Date: May 31, 2012 at 8:19
I've listened to all 5 albums by this great band where Rex played guitars and I would probably pick this one as my favourite album by them if drumming style wasn't so simple here.this is the only thing on this record that disturbs me when I'm listening to it, everything else (rhythm, vocals, backing vocals, guitar playing and lyrics) is great.my favourites here:tracks 1.,2.,3 and 7. Eventhough you aren't a christian I defenitely recommend you this band.God bless you all!!!
