Top 10 stryper songs
God The Covering That song is simply a Killer!!!. I have never heard Michael scream so much. The guitars are exceptional and carry the songs to new heights. The simple, but awesome intro of that song could be one of my favorites from any rock song the way the guitar screams back and forth in your headphones from ear to ear.
# 10 – jesus is just alright
Gone are the corny christian lyrics and the stupid bumblebee outfits, replaced by heavier guitars and tastier riffs. I love all of their albums including their nu- metal album, Reborn, I think it is great.
Shining Star Against the Law, Good Music!! At six minutes, it is by far their longest song ever.

Sonically, it appears to be their foray into symphonic progressive power metal. The guitar work is impeccable. The vocals, drums, keyboards, and bass are amazing too.
I am not even really a religious person, and I still dig it. Michael Sweet can sing, but oh please no more of this! Aside from that, this is just one of those albums I keep coming back to because of its good songs and musical quality. I bought three singles from that album including this song and all of them start one or two seconds into the song so you miss the opening chord.
Free is the song that turned me onto the band way back in middle school. It was a daring statement during that age of Reaganomics, sending both churchgoing parents and hell-bent rockers into a tizzy.
