40th Anniversary (Starsong)
by Petra

FOR FANS OF: Stryper, DeGarmo & Key, Foreigner
Rating: 4 Stars

One of Christian rock’s most groundbreaking bands turns 40 with a retrospective featuring 27 hits on two CDs (or a 37 track deluxe digital version). Both feature plenty of melodic rock staples like “This Means War,” “Beyond Belief” and “Creed,” plus the new worship ballad “Holy Is Your Name,” though the download edition is the best bet thanks to the inclusion of fellow key cuts like “More Power To Ya” and “The Coloring Song.”

WE LIKE: “Creed”
