Glam Metal?¡¿?¿?¿?¿?¿?¿?this band play between power metal and heavy metal,the suound go in the line of SANCTUARY and QUENSRYCHE (first time)

From: Cephas Date: March 4, 2002 at 6:01
I'd heard this was a classic CD. Beg to differ. George Ochoa admits in the liners he wanted to leave for Deliverance while playing with this band. But, it seemed a waste to not record the songs. You get a lot of guitars & a lot of guitar solos with Recon. Vett Roberts is serviceable, though his voice gets away from him at times. A singer almost seems an afterthought for this band! The melodies are ho-hum & so is Recon. Not the classic metal CD it's said to be.

From: Mike Date: April 9, 2002 at 12:31
Anything but glam! Should be listed as CCM!

From: Friday 13th Date: May 23, 2002 at 5:35
Holy shit, this band rocked!! This is without doubt one of the best Christian Metal albums around. A must for fans of early Q.Ryche 'The Warning' and Iron Maiden, Helstar and Priest to name a few. Great vocals like Halford & Tate. I wish these guys would re-form. Does anybody have any live videos?

From: drewman202 Date: April 14, 2003 at 17:52
Geoff Tate-ish vocals that are good mostly, but can get away from him a little on the really high end. Great sounding guitars and great songs. Can't say how many times I've listened to the title track (which incidentally Jimmy Brown co-wrote before getting George Ochoa to join Deliverance, hence the speed metal sound)! Great stuff!

From: Rene Date: April 25, 2003 at 14:04
Great album. Last year a live album came out of this guys, with some demos tracks. LIVE AT CORNSTONE.

From: Scott Date: April 27, 2003 at 1:14
One of my all time favorite discs. Had the pleasure of sharing a stage with these guys in California last summer. Great band, great album. Their new singer is AWESOME! By the way, George Ochoa joined Deliverance before this album was even recorded.

From: Jean Paul Date: May 7, 2003 at 15:27
Good Band, excellent vocals and precision guitars on the power melodic band...

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 2, 2004 at 11:42
One of the few Christian metal CDs that crossed over to the non-religious audience, due to the superior songwriting and musical firepower. Too bad that by the time the album was released, the band had already split up (guitarist George Ochoa was already a member of Deliverance during the recording process, as Scott mentioned above.) If they'd been able to tour and support this album, perhaps Recon would've been a big name in the underground. Talk about a lost opportunity!

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 2, 2004 at 11:46
By the way, this Cd was reissued in 2001 on Magdalene/M8 Records with a mess of bonus tracks, demos and their songs from the long out of print California Metal II compilation album. Worth seeking out and it's probably a little easier to find than the original pressing on Intense Records.

This is actually a CD I bought purely to trade with someone. I listened to it before it left my hands and in the end it was with a little bit of sadness that I had to get rid of it. Good solid heavy rock CD, and I don't recall the holy message being too annoying or overly present.

From: TONY IMPACT Date: November 9, 2004 at 4:16
estoy con lo que dice TONIO de Chile, esto de GLAM no tiene nada,suena a QUEENSRYCHE. El cd esta guapo un 7 de 10

From: perry.k Date: February 13, 2005 at 13:27
What an AWESOME HEAVY/POWER METAL GEM!!!! The trax "LOST SOLDIER" and "TAKE US AWAY" just KILL THE PLACE!!!!!One of the greatest PURE METAL albums ever heard!

From: AOR freaky Date: February 14, 2005 at 13:31
Not bad at all, indeed !

From: z4roxx Date: February 23, 2005 at 21:34
Solid,class and good band!Fans of Crimson Glory,Jacobs Dream(debut),Battalion,first Queensryche and Cason that's a must,production is not at the top but worth the purchase indeed...

From: Leatherwolf Date: October 5, 2006 at 8:11
Anyone know where I might find a copy of this cd? Thanks in advance for your help. DON'T STOP ROCKIN

From: juan carlos Date: July 20, 2007 at 12:28
RECON(Heavy) junto a los DELIVERANCE(Speed) son los verdaderos amos del metal Cristiano. Trallazo tras trallazo y con esos coros espectaculares y esa voz huele clarísimamente a Geoff Tate(Holy Is The Lord a lo Queensryche tambien). Acá en Perú (Radio Miraflores) sonaron hace mas de una decada y no dudé en decir que eran los reyes del Metal Cristiano. Mis favoritas? Todo el disco es TRALLA pero si impepinablemente no me dan alternativa pues "DREAMS" se la lleva TEMAZOOO!!!. God Save Recon!! 10/10
