An original cassette copy of the band's first EP. This particular Make It Easy On Yourself - Jerry Butler - Make It Easy On Yourself has yet to see the light of day on CD, at least in Europe and America.
I have read that it was released as bonus tracks on the Japanese version of the debut. In anycase, two of the four tracks here are from for the band's full length debut. Of the two new songs, "Love on the Line" is a prime Whitecross heavy metal number. The other track, "I Believe," is a blues based rocker with Rex Carroll taking over lead vocals for the first an only?
Rex Carroll is a total shred-head. Scott Wenzel has a cool, raspy, heavy metal voice. Lots of catchy songs on this one as well. Whitecross - Triumphant Return Pure Metal Whitecross' third full length disc continues in the LA heavy metal tradition, sounding like a mixture of Ratt and Whitesnake. With each album Whitecross continues to improve in the song writing department. Of course as is the trend with Rex Carroll, there is the obligatory guitar solo "Flashpoint. Whitecross - In the Kingdom Star Song By this time Whitecross were no longer a heavy metal Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Returnbut were forced into a pop-metal direction by their label.
It worked for them at the time as this album scored a Dove Award as well as several awards from readers polls in magazines like CCM and Heaven's Metal. Rex Carroll's signature guitar solos still penetrated every song, and like every past Whitecross album, there is the obligatory guitar solo "The Eternal Fire".
Despite the direction Whitecross decided to take, their music still was well played and contained enough crunch to appease the older fans. There are loads of 'guest' musicians on this disc including former Gegen Feindesland - Festung Kronstadt - First Demo bassist Rick Cua, who actually performs all Un Chagrin - Maud Lübeck - La Fabrique bass on this disc.
Christian rappers D. My copy is Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return by Rex Carroll. Whitecross - High Gear Star Song I sort of gave up on Whitecross at this point. Bad News From Home - Randy Newman - Land Of Dreams was really wanting heavy metal and Whitecross were being forced more and more into pop terrains that didn't peak my interest at the time.
However, I still purchased "High Gear" as a new release and enjoyed it from time to time, even if it wasn't what I was hoping for.
Songs like the title cut, "Dancin' in Heaven" and "Long Road Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return Walk" are actually good, catchy songs. Also what would a Whitecross album be without the mandatory Rex Carroll Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return solo, this time titled "Overdrive".
In reality, "High Gear" wasn't a bad release. I just think the problem was that Star Song was pushing Scott and Rex to make radio singles and what they did was to strip Whitecross of their signature sound. Scott Wenzel's distinct voice is still present and Rex is still the man behind the axe, but the songwriting and production were just a bit to slick for this long time fan.
Unfortunately, this would be the last album to feature Rex Carroll, who was not only the bands guitarist, but their co-founder and their main song writer. In reality, this should have been the last Whitecross album. Rex went on to form King James as well as release a few solo albums. Scott also recorded a couple solo albums and continued to carry the banner for Whitecross taking the band into even poppier territories. Whitecross - Unveiled R. Without Rex, cofounder and main songwriter for Whitecross, this album really should have been released under a different name.
Scott Wenzel never could capture the Whitecross sound on his own. Whitecross will forever be known as Rex and Scott not matter how many albums they put out without Rex. However, for a melodic rock album, this really isn't too bad. Still this song is a perfect CCM single. This song even includes some guitar shredding on the outro of the song.
Likewise, "Right Before Your Eyes" doesn't stray far from the radio rock of the last Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return of Whitecross platters. All things taken into consideration and despite Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return fact that this isn't the heavy metal that Whitecross are known for this is a decent rock 'n' roll CD. I also like the cover quite a bit. Whitecross - Flytrap REX 1. Get Real 2. Fantastic song.
Whitecross were often compared to the metal group Ratt and that's mainly because of Scott Wenzel's vocals. However, if you're familiar with Ratt, you'll notice that on this release less of a comparison can be made between the two bands.
The song writing style bares little resemblance to their secular counterparts, not to mention that Ratt's guitar players couldn't dream of playing in Rex's style. A combination of excellent playing by Rick Cua and Frank Liva and the great production give the bass and drums much greater impact than they've had on the previous 2 releases.
Scott Wenzel's vocal shrieks are even more prominent on this CD and it goes without saying that Rex's guitar playing is outstanding. Half of the riffs are very good while the other half are just flat-out great.
All of the songs have an incredible guitar solo. All of these elements combine to make Whitecross' "Triumphant Return" their best. This album by Whitecross is Dream Machine (ST-01 Mix) - Moonbeam - Dream Machine much the same Street Military - Steel Gangstaz Chopped & Skrewed as the first two albums.
Nothing wrong with that and this one also features some Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return my favorite Whitecross songs. This album is also produced very good maybe their best production with guitars,drums and vocals all sounding great and equal without drowning each other out.
There also seems to be more energy on this one than previous releases. This is one of the best Whitecross albums you can buy. Way underrated and deserves a listen. This is essential Whitecross and should be added to your collection if you are a fan of their music Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return just want to check them out. I was alone and very depressed as a young man just out of high school. Luckily I loved the Lord, but I hated life and didn't see much use in it.
I went to Simple Man - Whitecross - Triumphant Return Christian book store and was looking for some music. The owners were not there that night but there teenage son was. He had long hair and looked like the heavy metal type. I asked him if they had any good Christian music. He also said his Mom and Dad hated this heavy metal stuff but he sold it when they were not around. Well, these three albums saved my life. I really didn't want to live, this music gave me the fight to keep going.
