The Writings on The Wall

This is almost my favorite Stryper album. It is my favorite of the 80's/90's records. Come To The Everlife was abysmal, but otherwise, this is a great album. The title track, Always There For You, Keep The Fire Burning, It's Up 2 U ... all great songs. My second favorite, after the track above, would be The World of You And I. I love that song. Lonely is awesome! It's my favorite Stryper ballad.

Writing On The Wall for me. This is my least favorite of theirs. I prefer the Reborn version of the title track. Haven't listened to this one in a long time and the last time I did it hadn't aged very well with that production.

"The Writing's On the Wall" - Has infectious melodic lines, ripping riffs, killer soloing, clever harmony vocals, classic Stryper harmony lead playing, and the bottom-line call to repentance without sounding trite.

Would love it if Stryper would remaster or even redo the whole album by taking the POP out and put in a seriously heavy, crunchy METAL sound to this very good record!!!   lol!


WRITINGS ON THE WALL is my favourite song as well.

Easily their worst album imo. I'm surprised that some feel it's their best - I love the diversity of opinions!

As for the best song on it - I'd say The Writings On The Wall with a nod to Its Up 2 U

I would have to agree. I've had it since it came out (as with all stryper releases) and I just listened to a bunch of it and I honestly don't even remember the record. Apparently I didn't listen to it much... contrast with Yellow... and Soldiers... I wore those out at the time.

I've always thought this album was underrated. A lot of fans don't like it. For me it was AWESOME from start to finish! The only album Stryper ever released that was a TRUE MASTERPIECE (not one filler song). To Hell with the Devil is a close second, but there was one filler song on that one (All of Me).

In would have to go with In God we trust, only because I have not heard this album in years. It is a good song though. Hmmm should give it another listen.

Great album! It's perhaps my favorite Stryper album.

It's hard to choose between In God We Trust, The Writings on the Wall, Lonely and The Reign. They all are some of my all time heavy metal tracks ever made. Lonely is also one of my favorite ballads ever made.

I get massive goosebumps from all of those songs.

My favorite is probably "Always There For You".  No wonder they made it a single.  Sounds good.

I've always thought it was a very underrated song! I know they made a video of it - and it became a single and all. But it seems like there was a lot of hate against it at the time (at least in my friend's circles). Also - nowadays when I talk to anyone about this album - and this song in particular - there is a lot of hate. Not sure why. "In God We Trust" was basically "To Hell with the Devil" part 2. No one ever complains about "THWTD".

I remember that Always There For You was released as a single before the album dropped (B side In God We Trust) and I listened to it over and over.

That would be my favourite track followed by The Writings on the Wall.

Overall I think the songs are great but the album was overproduced.

The album certainly did have an 'over-produced' quality to it. I guess that is why so many don't like it.

Almost gave it an AOR feel.

And because I happen to really like slickly produced AOR - that probably explains my love for In God We Trust.

But yeah - it will probably always be my favorite Stryper album.

Was this ever remastered? I always thought the sound was a little thin.

I'm hoping for a re-record of many of the songs for a Second Coming 2.

alot of albums by the time this was released had a slick over-produced sound.. I think that is partly what killed the 80s glam metal...it was moving away from metal to a more AOR thing...

While not their best album IMO and even Michael Sweet admits that in his book, it does have some good songs. My favorites are with some areas of improvements are:

IN GOD WE TRUST
ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU
KEEP THE FIRE BURNING
WRITINGS ON THE WALL (I find the snare drum is mixed too loud and over rides the overall mix of the other instruments)
THE WORLD OF YOU AND I
THE REIGN (the guitars could be brought out in the mix more and the song is too short)

l don't like It's Up 2U at all. Come to the Everlife could be rearranged to make it more of an agressive/bluesy positive song. Lonely is a decent guitar driven ballad.

Whether Michael Sweet says it's not their best album or not ... doesn't matter.

It's all a matter of personal tastes. Obviously Michael thinks it's not their best album. But that is only HIS opinion. Even though he's a member of Stryper - it's still a matter of opinion.

Lemmy never thought Motorhead was a 'Metal' band. Just Rock and Roll to him. Doesn't mean Motorhead was not truly Metal.

Sometimes the members in a band are wrong. But then again ... there really is no 'right or wrong' when it comes to opinion.

The live and more aggressive version of Always there for You sounded awesome on Live at the Whisky. If they remixed a few songs on another Second Coming compilation or whole album like that - that would be awesome.

I saw a few days ago Michael asking on his FB page if people would like to hear this album re-recorded heavier.  Personally I think it is a case of let it be what it was and move on with new music.  For me, the writing on this album just doesn't seem as good as the previous ones, almost like their hearts weren't in it.  Of course part of it may have been that by the time this came out I had discovered The Crucified and Vengeance Rising and was losing interest in the polished glam sound.

For me I guess my favorite was the title track.  I liked "Always There for You" as well, but not as much.
