Any thoughts?

It's very good. Lots of cool riffs. The new singer has a way different voice than the other two guys. Very "throaty" and kinda gritty and ballsy. Still wish Mike Howe was singing on it,but I really can't bitch about him. There's some mediocre tracks on it,but overall it's very strong and more than worth your while.

Good disc. This is the first Metal Church CD I've heard in quite some time. Good, solid Power Metal, that sounds absolutely nothing like the Metal Church that I grew up on.

I haven't heard it yet.

Just won it on eBay, but haven't received it yet.

I dig it. The singer sounds like he could be in Savatage. He's got a lot more range, power, and clarity in his voice than Wayne or Howe. It will be funny to hear him sing the old songs, cause I can't imagine him screeching along to Hitman or Ton of Bricks or that sort of stuff.

I was surprised by this albums quality though, because metal webpages have been either bashing this album or giving it fairly average reviews. they say it sounds like the same old shit. I guess we don't agree with Metal Rules or those other pages.

I saw them in concert back in august and the new singer is pretty decent. The new album unfortunately doesn't do much for me outside of the opening track. It just seems so bland and dull, as if vanderhoof's run out of ideas. Human Factor was the last release of any significance as far as I'm concerned.
