Descripción del producto
Almost four decades into their storied history, Petra have announced the reunion of their 'classic' 80s lineup, which consists of vocalist Greg X Volz, guitarist Bob Hartman, bassist Mark Kelly, drummer Louie Weaver and keyboardist John Lawry. The four-time Grammy award-winning band are releasing a new album featuring re-recordings of hits from that era plus two new songs. These 'elder statesmen' of Christian music hope that their comeback will be a call to their audience to return to that fervent faith of their youth and re-establish the firm foundation and message that marked contemporary Christian music in those early years. The band will also be launching the 'Back to the Rock' world tour starting this autumn in the US and continuing across the globe in 2011 and 2012.

Enter my future wife, who had been following Christian music her whole life. She had older brothers who were listening to everything available on the market. She introduced me to Petra in 1989, and now nearly 30 years later, there hasn’t been another Christian rock band that has risen to their iconic stature. From their beginning in the early 1970s, Petra set the standard and paved the way for all of Christian rock.
I have not been aware of any new material from Petra for at least 10 years, and I stumbled on this classic set by accident--I am really glad I did. With Petra, the Greg X Volz era stands the test of time better than the newer material with John Schlitt on vocals. The albums from the Volz era have that classic feel that never sound dated.
These new recordings, with all the original members of Petra, are amazing sonically, and I like them all better than the originals--no kidding! The new tracks have more depth, richness of tone and detail than the original tracks. My ear can pick-out and focus on each instrument more easily. I was simply stunned at Greg’s vocal ability after all these years. In a lot of ways, I like his voice better now, because he doesn’t sing as consistently in the highest octave any more. Incidentally, I understand that he is (or was) able to sing in 4 different octaves and was recruited, but declined, to join REO Speedwagon back in the day. The sound leveling of the mix and overall production of the CD is stellar.
For what it’s worth, the band produced a live DVD (sorry, no Blu-Ray) of these songs. The audio and video quality, camera work and production is excellent. One of the band members, John Lawry, runs his own production studio. There is also a 2nd excellent band documentary DVD included in the package. I recently purchased the DVD (which came personally autographed) on Greg’s website for less than $20. I feel like I’m undergoing a Petra revival here recently! Go for it and check out this “new” material.
I'm a guitar fanatic- love the sounds you can get out of them, but not so much on this album. Jekyl and Hyde was the best Petra album of all time for guitar sound. This is not at all that (I know, it's not supposed to be), and it's not at all the original, it's something... else, for lack of a better description.
I've only given it one listen all the way through. It may grow on me. Still, hats off to the band for what they have been able to accomplish after all these years, and going on tour too? I'll definitley be there!
