I’m Not Your Suicide (Big3 Records)
by Michael Sweet
FOR FANS OF: Whitesnake, Boston, Mr. Big
Rating: 5 Stars
For the first time since 2000, longtime Stryper leader/former Boston co-vocalist Michael Sweet is releasing an entirely original solo album. To make up for the gap, he stacks this modern-day melodic rock masterpiece with major guest stars such as Kevin Max (dc Talk, Audio Adrenaline), Chris Jericho, plus members of Whitesnake, TNT and Stryper. But make no mistake, I’m Not Your Suicide is a full-fledged foray into Sweet’s songwriting soul, alongside sky-high vocals that only seem to improve with age.
