This one hour mini-movie is built around six state-of-the-art concept music videos by the rock band Petra, featuring songs from the album Beyond Belief. The movie features cameo appearances by Petra band-members John Schlitt, Bob Hartman, John Lawry, Louie Weaver and Ronny Cates, who interact with Chad in one of the movie's videos. The Beyond Belief Video Album is a trend-setting visual achievement, and a powerful testimony of God's faithfulness and love.
Beyond Belief is the twelfth studio album of the Christian rock band, Petra. It was released on June 20, 1990. In this album the band continues to polish the hard rock/arena rock sound the band had been working on their previous efforts before their praise album (On Fire! and This Means War!). As of late 2011, this is the band's most successful album both critically and commercially, and it is considered by most to be the peak of their discography. The album won the band their first Grammy after five previous nominations, and was certified gold on October 3, 1995.
Violinist Irvine Arditti, pianist Claude Helffer, and the Spectrum ensemble conducted by Guy Protheroe produce consummate performances of the Greek avant-gardist's unwieldy chamber music. If you're familiar with Xenakis's career you'll know he was trained in mathematics and enjoyed a successful career as an architect. Such background might prepare you for the music's preoccupation with line, volume, and form in an unusually abstract way, but it won't prepare you for its visceral, almost primitive power. On Akanthos, the singer Penelope Walmsley-Clark must cope with what is surely one of the most ridiculous soprano parts ever written.
Against The Wind is the eleventh album by American rock singer Bob Seger and his fourth with the Silver Bullet Band. Against The Wind was an immediate commercial success, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart in its third week and remaining there for five weeks behind Pink Floyd's The Wall before reaching No. 1 and holding the top position for six weeks. By late 1981 the album sold 3.7 million copies in the United States and was certified 5x platinum in 2003. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band won the 1980 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the album Against The Wind.
