    God Damn Evil is pretty good. I picked it up earlier this year and definitely enjoy it. One of the better albums that they've put out in a long time.

    I am still working through that one and the other two (Fallen and No More Hell To Pay). I am leaning towards Fallen over God Damn Evil, but the real problem is I generally prefer the older stuff from the 1980s.

    Oh and I think Against The Law stands alone as an awesome rock album that is not in either their typical 80s style or the new style.

    Yeah I came across Stryper by chance back around 1999/2000 when I by chance picked up the albums Soldiers Under Command (1985) and To Hell With The Devil (1986) and thought they sounded pretty good with a bag full of good heavy metal songs anyway shortly after that I picked up In God We Trust (1988) and finally Against The Grain (1990) which featured a change of image to a more rougher looking bunch of dudes as opposed to there previous clean looking big hair 80s look.

    I believe I also bought The Yellow And Black Attack now I think about it there first album I believe it was??.

    Also I believe I read once that at there live gigs they would throw 'bibles' into the crowds of fans.

    I haven't got any Stryper cds these days and haven't heard any of therefore mentioned albums for maybe 17 or 18 years??.

    You got all five of their albums put out before they broke up. There are five after they came back together plus the one album of covers. Really, i like the first five better than the newer stuff but it is all good.

    Of those first five you have, Yellow and Black Attack, Soldiers Under Command, and Hell with the Devil seem to be the best and more similar in style. I thought In God We Trust was not as good as the first three. Against the Law is a very good hard rocking album but different style than the earlier albums.

    Of the newer stuff I would say No More Hell to Pay, Fallen, and God Damn Evil are the best.

    Sorry I accidently wrote AGAINST THE GRAIN instead of AGAINST THE LAW I can only presume that I was subconsciously thinking of RORY GALLAGHER'S 1975 album of the same name. As for Stryper's album AGAINST THE LAW even though it was different musically and image band wise from the previous albums that the band had put out it was still a good heavy rock/metal album from memory although I haven't actually heard it for about 17 or 18 years.
