Unquestionably Stryper’s strongest and most rockin’ album, To Hell with the Devil was a tough act to follow. Instead of following it up with something equally intense, the band stressed its pop side on In God We Trust. Though not quite as big a seller as To Hell with the Devil, the album quickly went gold and fell short of platinum. In God isn’t a terrible album by any means, and it does have its moments (most notably, “Come to the Everlife” and “The Writing’s on the Wall”), but some of the other material isn’t very memorable. Quite often, Stryper sounds like just another MTV-friendly arena rock band. More devoted Stryper aficionados are the main listeners who should acquire this album.
