Petra
Wake-Up Call



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks
Street Date: 1993


If you're new to Petra, you need to start right here. Wake Up Call rocks the whole way through, with lyrics that are insightful and meaningful, great vocals, and diversified music. The only negative point is that I wish the studio budget had been higher as the quality is not quite top notch. Even still (and I think I'm quite fussy about production quality), it is probably my favorite album ever.

Take "He's Been in My Shoes" for example - a gentle acoustic song - "He's been in my shoes, been down this road before" - with brilliant lyrics. If you like 80's rock with it's stunning guitar solos, buy Wake-Up Call!

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents


I distinctly remember adoring this record as a young teen. It's a solid arena rock album that's a bit dated now, but still a good transition in the band's long and impressive career. - 11/2/05, John DiBiase
