  1. The first Stryper I’ve ever owned is MURDER BY PRIDE. I was kinda excited to hear they already had a new album in the works but then disappointed upon finding out it was a covers album. Think I might pass.

  2. I am not a big Stryper, but I am a fan of Robert Sweet’s playing. He is a solid drummer, but I think his work with Bill Menchen’s projects in recent years is some of his best material.
