“More Power To Ya was Petra’s fifth 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 an even more polished production, intentional and disciplined composition and a 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, while “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.” -Girder Records
