I remember having to hunt for my copy of "Jekyll & Hyde" because none of the local Christian bookstores bothered to order it. I think I found it at Best Buy of all places, so it doesn't surprise me it wasn't it great seller. But with digital distribution and streaming, albums are more accessible than ever before, so maybe they feel they can actually make a profit since they don't have to fuss around with a physical product.

The real question remains will Bob & John continue where they left of with a heavier Jekyll & Hyde sound, or will it be another praise album similar to Vertical Expressions from II Guys from Petra? Alternatively, will they seek a more adult contemporary, radio friendly format akin to God Fixation? I suppose only time will tell. Either way, I look forward to whatever they create.

Since it's not going to sell what they used to sell, and Christian radio probably isn't going to play it, they should do what they want and RAWWWWWWWWK! Make music they like and don't worry about anyone else.

Wow! You guys sure are down on Petra!
wonder why John & Bob are doing this
Because... they like to make music and sing a new songs unto the Lord!

Why else would Christian artists make an album???

Making money is a side bar and shouldn't be anywhere near the top of the list as to WHY we're making a new Petra album. Too many so called "Christian" musicians are so much like the world you can't tell them apart from secular musicians. No surprise there since the Lord told us in His Word that there would be a great falling away before He returns... the goats are separating from the sheep.

Pleasing the Lord comes first... a distant second is inspiring people to turn from their sin (REPENT!) and walk with the Lord.

The Lord should be our first love and pleasing the Father thru Jesus by the Holy Ghost should always be our first and highest priority!

I think these guys should get off their proverbial duff and crank out some new tunes!

You don't "retire" from a calling... if some petheads are now in the old folks homes then Petra can bless them with some new music
