Reviewed by Steve Best

Petra are now down to a duo (guitarist Bob Hartman and vocalist John Schlitt) but have been augmented by various Newsboys – well all of them actually, with Peter Furler handling the production duties. So much to say about this; for starters I think this has to be the LOUDEST Petra album ever (we have, it seems, the so-called ‘Petheads’ to thank for this according to the sleeve). Secondly, 10 tracks but only 31 minutes running time – what gives there? Still, what material there is, is joyously thunderously raucous. The brutal title track kicks off, leading into the shin-kicking “All About Who You Know”. “Stand” takes us into familiar Petra territory before the chorus sends your ears into meltdown. “Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda” adds a bit of funk into the mix, “Perfect World” sounds like a ballad at first, but….uh-huh! CRUNCH!! And we’re off again into Planet Riffola. Things just don’t let up til penultimate cut “Till Everything I Do” which pulls things down to mid pace, while closer “Sacred Trust” is probably what we might have expected from Petra on previous records. In the past, I’ve hesitated to say that Petra rock, but on this outing, there is absolutely no doubt that they SERIOUSLY ROCK, and sound like they’re thoroughly enjoying themselves in the process. I just wish that they could have given us a little more value for money, as I would not call paying 14.99 for half an hour a good investment. Were it not for this, it would have been a 10 square bonanza, but…
