Hard to choose between the first two choices, but I went with the Golden Era. I find when I want Bride, I usually pull out Kinetic Faith or Snakes. Sometimes I'll also go to Show No Mercy or Live To Die.

That being said, there are songs on The Jesus Experience that rival anything else they've done. And I also really like Oddities. The music is a bit too modern and non-melodic for me to listen to it regularly, but I feel like Oddities was their best album lyrically.

I chose the Golden Era over the rest.  Like FOJ, those are the albums I pull when I want to hear Bride.  Unlike a lot of folks, their Silver Era is what I go to next.  The music on "This Is It" is so much similar to that Golden Era.  "Skin For Skin" would have also fit musically in that era but with more aggression.  "Tsar Bomba" was right there with them but you can hear the tiredness beginning.  With "Incorruptible", it is a solid project but you hear a veteran band trying to go out with a bang but not quite mustering the energy of the past.  Despite Dale's beliefs, this era is almost as enjoyable for me as that Golden Era.

I love "The Jesus Experience"  and "Drop".  "Oddities" is appropriately named and it is my least favorite of all they did.  The rocked out songs feel rushed and it is overloaded with ballads that were never gonna hit on the radio. 

I like the music from the Classic Era, but the songs aren't as well written and Dale's higher pitched vocals are just hard for me to understand.  I like when he pulled back a little starting with the "Slience Is Madness" album

Live To Die is my favorite Bride release as well, but to echo alldat and FoJ , Snakes and Scarecrow are my next choices, when I wanna hear Bride, I agree that The Jesus Experience and Skin For Skin are phenomenal releases as well.
Another reason to vote for the Classic Era for me is Silence Is Madness, which I remember listening to before I even knew who Bride was so, imagine me as a baby jamming Silence Is Madness Laughing
I have to admit I do not own Tsar Bomba or Incorruptible  jocolor

I went with the Golden Era.  I actually dig some of their grunge era stuff as well, but unlike most people here I just cannot stand their classic albums.

I went with the Golden era even though Kinetic Faith is the only album by bride I like and own...I used to own a few others but traded them off.. I am interested in the matrix stuff however.. what I have heard has more of an 80s hair metal sound..could anyone recommend the matrix cd I should pick up?

Golden era for me: no question.  I like classic era a lot too (I prefer all three of them to Kinetic Faith) but Snakes and Scarecrow are by far my favorites.  It was this era that got me in to Bride.

I pretty much agree with everything alldat said.

S.A., for Matrix I think all of the "different" Matrix CDs are mostly the same CD with just a few songs swapped out.  I have Matrix - 1983-1984 and Bride - The Matrix Years/Lost Reels I.  I have heard that Bride - Into the Matrix is really the one to get just for superior mastering.  Can anyone else comment on that?

Try the Retroactive Records "Into The Matrix" album.  It is just a collection of their early cassette only tracks remastered by Cliffy.  You will hear a couple of those tracks redone on their first 3 Bride albums.

Classic then Golden for me!

I was at the concert where they debuted "Live To Die". It will always be a sentimental favorite!

I had to go with the "Golden Era." Even though I love the classic metal era, Bride was just on top of the world after Kinetic Faith. Though it might have been better if maybe they just quit after Scarecrow Messiah. I didn't even care much for their "revival" albums after they went back to rock. 

Fun fact: Silence is Madness is the first Christian metal tape I ever bought with my own money after I decided I was going to listen to Christian music.

Not trying to start a theological debate at all, but was your not liking the newer albums due to Dale's beliefs or mostly just the music?

I really only like Live to Die and Snakes, which are basically two totally different bands.  I voted for the early era, though, because I think Live to Die was more unique musically than Snakes 'n Roses.

It was the music, Alldat. It just wasn't the same. Technically, it was okay I guess but something always felt off. While I don't agree with Dale in his views, it wouldn't effect my enjoyment of the music.

Gotta go with the classic era. I just love it.

The golden era would be a very close second. I'm not as big on Kinetic Faith as I am on the other two, though.

Well the classic era Dale screams your songs, the golden era he sings you a story. Dale has a great set of pipes and troy is a great guitarist. I could never figure these guys out. Were they trying to fit in with the times? Or were they just plain confused and did not know what to play? Or were they so good they could play anything? Either way they lost fans and gained new ones. Snakes in Playground is where my interest waned. I still have my cassettes up to scarecrow messiah.

I'd guess it was probably a mix of them trying to appeal to people and them getting bored with one thing, as creative people.

Golden Era for me! I would consider the Classic Era to be a carry over from their Matrix days. Classic Era is a close second to Golden Era for me. Third would be Silver Era. The rest not so much.

Tough choice between the classic and golden eras for me.  Went with Classic as I'm not too keen on Kinetic Faith.

Hard choice between the Classic and Golden Era. I chose Golden, because of Snakes In The Playground. Btw I don't think Drop should be in the Grunge Era. It would fit maybe even better into the Golden Era or put together with the Bluesy stuff that Dale released solo.

With "Drop", they were not so much grunge but this was definitely more of an alternative sound.  Had they just sold it as their "acoustic" album, I don't think most fans would have cared what they did.

Either way, Rugged Records was not a great place for some bands.

True, but like Guardian after Swing Swang Swung they never got back to what they were before the "acoustic" album.

Neither did Bride for quite some time.  We lost guitar solos.  They definitely went after a more alternative sound.  But, so did Whitecross, Xalt, X-Sinner (as the Angry Einsteins), Petra, Holy Soldier, and White Heart.  The alternative/grunge scene had taken over MTV and radio and our music was no longer mainstream.  Metal became the alternative.  The old metal bands brought in alternative pieces that were not what their fans wanted.  It cost most of them their careers, too.  Except for Bride, none of these bands ever did much after they went alternative.  Bride has had a decent "reunion" era with "This Is It" and its 3 follow ups.  Whitecross has only managed to re-record their debut and Guardian put out something even worse than "Bottle Rocket".  X-Sinner has put out a decent follow up with "World Covered In Blood" but is probably done.

Man, I have just made myself sad as I realize that many of my favorites are gone for good.  Where is Saint when you need a new album!!!!

Hey guys, Alan from THE WORLD WILL BURN HERE.  We are a new band and Dale Thompson is our singer.  I really think he sounds terrific on our new album, and if you like Bride from the Golden Era we might be right up your alley.  We aren't Bride, but if you love Dale's voice give us a listen.

I think most here would consider this opinion "blasphemy" , but I consider "This Is It" to be a better album than "Sankes in the Playground"

Glad I'm not the only one. None of the Bride albums from the 2000s - when they'd returned to a hard rock sound - do anything for me. And while I don't like the lyrical direction, this wouldn't be different if Dale had stayed true to the faith. The music was just..."off" is a good way to describe it.
