Reviews - What do customers think about Petra Means Rock?
Sedimentary Rock! Apr 2, 2006
I like several of Petra's compiliations! Especially "Petraphonics" and that's not dinosaurs either. Layer upon layer of guitar chords and pounding drums! The album arts on these albums are really cool.
"Upon This Rock....." Dec 20, 2005
Petra is a ROCK band. They've cranked out hits for over three decades now. Secular arena rock fans should have no problem listening to these guys. They fit perfectly into anyone's rock catalogue and sound right comfortable there. They are perhaps the most influential Christian band in any genre. You could make an argument for Amy Grant in the pop genre, but she sang secular tunes to reach the masses whereas Petra has always been about the Gospel.
Though I enjoy many of the songs with Greg X. Volz on this particular album (some of the best ones on hear are fronted by him), I'm one of those latter-day Petra fans who started listening to the band after John Schlitt took over. Don't forget that Bob Hartman is the true driving force behind this band. Responsible for almost all of this band's tunes and usually contributing something to the ones he didn't write, Hartman deserves a special place in the halls of Christian rock history.
Favorites of mine include "Judas' Kiss," "All Fired Up," "Stand Up" and "He Came, He Saw, He Conquered." Other big hits include "Counsel of the Holy" and "Shakin' The House."
If you enjoy arena rock in the vein of Kansas, you're sure to enjoy Petra. They are one of the best things to come out of Christian music and they will keep influencing bands for many decades to come.
THE ONLY PETRA GREATEST HITS YOU NEED Nov 30, 2005
First off, there are way to many Petra 'best of' cds out there. I am sure it's the record companies decision and Petra had little to say on the subject. With so many out there you might have a little trouble deciding which to go with. I would highly recommend going with this one as it is more complete than the other ones. You get all the essentials of Petra like "Shakin' The House" "Hit You Where You Live" "Judas Kiss" and "Angel Of Light". This best of cd features both singers and gives equal time to each one.
This is a good one to get for those wanting a good compilation that has songs from the pre Beyond Belief Petra. Actally you could buy this, "Beyond Belief" "Unseen Power" "Wake-Up Call" "No Doubt" "God Fixation" "Jekyl And Hyde" and you would have all the Petra you need. Maybe "Captured In Time And Space" to get live Petra songs like "Grave Robber" and "Speak To The Sky" would make this complete. That's my opinion and die hard fans would probably say "This Means War" is an essential album to buy also.
Stand out songs: "Hit You Where You Live" "Shakin'The House" and "Angel Of Light"
And yes, I know even this compilation is not perfect(It needs "This Means War" and a few more from "On Fire" in my opinion) but it is the best out there so far. If you can find the long out of print box set "War And Rememberance" then great, because that is another one worth including in your collection.
Totally awesome Sep 23, 2005
I have been a big fan of Petra for a long time and really enjoy their music. All the songs on here are excellent. Now with the band breaking up after a 33 year career, I started to play all my Petra albums. This one is one of my favorites because it has a great rock beat and the pace is consistent. There were only a few songs I didn't like. If you want to hear one of Petra's best albums, I highly recommend you buy this CD.
best petra comp so far except war and rememberance Jan 22, 2003
Right, firstly the songs on this album are all rocky so get used to it. Ballad likers wont bat an eye over this album! Althought they should because these are some of the biggest songs ever penned by petra during the eighties! I was well glad to see they had "Killing My Old Man" and "Angel Of Light" on this one, two of my fav sopngs when Greg was lead singer. But why is This Means War not on here for? That is another very heavy rocker?!! Dont ask me. But still this album boasts memorable tracks like "Judas Kiss" and "Shakin The House" which should nto be missed. Please people out there get this album now. Get away fromt he world and rock and get on your knees and fight like a man!!
