4.0 su 5 stelle Righteous (Rob) Rock! 1 marzo 2006
Di Justin G. - Pubblicato su
Formato: Audio CD
1988's Intense Defense was the third album from Christian melodic rock band Joshua, which featured shred artist Joshua Perahia. I don't know how I missed this one when it was originally released, because I was very much into Christian hard rock at the time, and Intense Defense would have been right up my alley.

Unlike previous Joshua albums, which focused on hyperfast guitar shredding, Intense Defense was a more melodic, less metal offering that was somewhere between Stryper's hair metal sound and the harder-edged power metal of Barren Cross. It reminds me of what House of Lords and King Kobra were releasing around that time. The songs are upbeat, keyboard-driven melodic rockers, with the obligatory power ballad thrown in. The songs are well-written, and the lyrics, while Christian in nature, are ambiguously so. They're positive, but not overtly religious. Whether this was an attempt for the crossover success that Stryper achieved, or the band was just trying not to alienate potential listeners, it seems to work pretty well. Intense Defense is much more accessible to the average listener than albums by Joshua's more evangelical peers in Whitecross or Petra.

Intense Defense's real asset, and the main reason I picked up the disc as a Japanese import 17 years later, is vocalist Rob Rock, who performed with Impelliteri and Warrior before launching a successful (for this type of music) solo career. Rock has a soaring voice that is perfectly suited for melodic hard rock and heavy metal, and it is his performance here that sets Joshua apart from some of the rest of the pack.

Christian rock and metal fans should definitely seek out this album, as it is a notable entry in the genre. It should also appeal to fans of melodic hard rock and heavy metal in general and Rob Rock fans in particular.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Greatest AOR album of all time (or so they say) 30 giugno 2008
Di Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Pubblicato su
Formato: Audio CD
Joshua Perahia is an American guitarist in the Hard Rock/Glam metal/AOR fields of rock; he is perceived by many to be the fastest guitar player/shredder in the world surpassing the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen and Chris Impellitteri. What is undeniable though is that from the early 80s to 2001 he released a total of five groundbreaking hard rock albums; "Intense defense" is his third studio album originally released in 1988. This line up is set to include iconic singer Rob Rock (ex Axel Rudi Pell, Impellitteri, Solo), bass player Emil Leigh, drummer Tim Gehrt and Greg Schultz on keyboards.
Even under the strictest perspective "Intense Defense" stands as a very good hard rock album offering a number of great tracks such as "Only yesterday", "Look to the Sky", Crying out for love" and "Don't you know".
On a personal level what I found really interesting is that many British rock/metal journalists consider and have adamantly stated that "Intense Defense" is the greatest AOR album of all time. Sure "Int. Defense" is a powerful statement in rock but it is by no means flawless; Rob's vocals although technically perfect could be considered as typical and not as colorful. Joshua's guitar playing is nothing out of the ordinary throughout this album; it has to be pointed out that Joshua was never one to reach his speed limit in every song but throughout "Intense defense" there is literally no evidence of his "legendary" shredding speed (as was more than apparent on his previous releases). Overall "I.D." stands nowhere near its predecessor "Surrender" (1985) which was simply a barrage of speeding melodies and a masterpiece of a composition.

If Joshua has indeed recorded the greatest AOR album of all time then this would be "Surrender" not "Intense Defence"
