#songoftheday = MICHAEL SWEET: “BIZARRE”


Michael Sweet gave us the distinct impression that his next solo album, One-Sided War, was going to be quite different from Stryper and it really is. (Read our interview here.) For one thing, it's much, much heavier. There are some Stryper songs that verge on this level...
