Yeah....remastered copies of copies. Wonderful 16/44.1. Whenever someone buys them, I would like to hear an original release vs. the remasters.

THE ALBUM THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING
More Power To Ya was Petra's 5th album and the album that changed everything. Previously sounding similar to Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Eagles, with some laid back Southern Rock vibes, Petra had been working out the bugs to perfect a polished progressive-rock sound. Petra finally crafted a style that could easily lock horns with anything on the industry charts and stand toe to toe with bands like STYX, Boston and Journey. Their new progressive(ish) rock sound began receiving attention from the mainstream music industry. In case you wondered if this was a significant change, BILLBOARD dubbed More Power to Ya a "Top Album Pick" and praised the band's "surging music, tough lyrics and effective vocals."

Hot on the heels of the success of Never Say Die, Petra's return featured even more polished production, intentional and disciplined composition, and sweeping scale. More Power To Ya rivaled mainstream albums by groups like Journey, Boston, or Styx in style and sound, but brought an unabashed message of encouragement to Christian listeners. Christian radio had a field day with the title track, while rock fans thrilled to the stripped down riff (and creepy backwards message) of “Judas Kiss.” “Rose Colored Stained Glass Windows” dared to challenge complacency within the church, with “The Road To Zion” struck an epic, almost Zeppelin-esque tone both lyrically and musically. More Power To Ya checked all the boxes, rose to even higher sales levels, and saw Petra become one of the biggest touring spectacles in Christian music.

ABOUT THE REISSUE
Although this album was released as a 25th Anniversary Edition in 2012 (9 years ago), it lacked the punch, low-end, and definition that remastering now affords and at the hand of Rob Colwell it is truly a masterpiece and sound new, fresh and somehow sound relevent again today.

When someone gets their hands on these I'd appreciate an honest, non biased review. For me I would be more interested in a BB or Unseen Power remaster. Maybe I'm thinking remix.... either way I'd like to hear more guitar, less drum.

Agreed. I have been dying to hear Beyond Belief and Unseen Power on record. Hopefully these 3 do well so they can do more.

I’m working my way through these now. So far just doing a quick listen. Thumbs up to MPTY. It’s a definite improvement. Trying to get to the others tonight, and will follow up with a thorough evaluation after that.

BTS is also a nice improvement in sound quality. Brought back my appreciation for the album after it had faded a little over the years. I will definitely be listening to this version much more now. TMW is a good improvement in sound quality, a little more low end definition than the previous CD. One little annoyance is that the old CD had a flaw during mastering in which the first fraction of a second of the beginning of “He Came...” was cut off. That flaw is still present in this new edition. Overall, though, it’s a great job. Let’s hope that they sell enough to generate interest for further remasters, and that Universal will be willing to license more for reissue. I would love to see an improved version of BTTS for sure.
