|Good Christian Hard/AOR album, a ver si algun dia los hispanos que tanto comentan ahora en este site como minimo dejan un comentario de un disco que no lo este y aportan, este disco no llega al nivel de sus siguientes obras pero ya demostraba lo que vendria en sus siguientes trabajos, un buen album un cruce entre AOR y Hard Rock con sintetizadores y otra cosa este trabajo es del 84 y no del 85 Adonai & Hollow Eyes estos cortes ponen la magia al album AOR de nivel A1 7.5/10

|God bless Rafo!!Last comment here,can't believe that hundreds people here didn't like/hear this one without any emotion,it's not possibile.For me"Adonai"is maybe the greatest aor song of 80's,don't add anything else,only that J.Schlitt is one of the greatest talent voices and here Mr.Greg X.Volz is one of the finest voices ever.But if you prefer to full the Julliet space I respect ahahah

|Petra continued to crank up their popularity within the Christian rock ranks with this release, though with the clarity of retrospective hindsight, the sterile production did them no favors and doesn't hold up very well by today's standards. Still, in 1985, this couldn't be beat (within the CCM genre, mind you). There are a lot of sharp hooks on this album and Volz delivers them in excellent fashion with his uniquely urgent voice. Like all the band's 1980s output, this birthed some bona fide Petra classics, including "It is Finished," a thunderous rock retelling of the crucifixion story, and "Adonai," a gloriously soaring AOR anthem. Listen, if you're an oldschool Christian rocker, put some Petra in your system--you won't regret it.
