Michael's review:
God Fixation is now officially one of my FAVORITE Petra albums! The sound is fresh and up, and the lyrics are some of Bob Hartman's best. I haven't had a chance to write my "real" review yet, but until I do I thought I would post this review I wrote to submit to CD Now. It's very short (it had to be less than 225 words), so there's not a lot of detail... I'll get to the details later. Stay tuned!

Petra has gone through many stylistic periods in their long history, but the music on their latest offering, God Fixation, is among their best yet. The three new members, who toured with Petra for Petra Praise 2: We Need Jesus but had minimal studio influence on that project, are spreading their wings now, bringing the band's sound a new freshness. Fans of bands such as Matchbox 20 and Collective Soul will be very happy with the jangly, guitar-laden sound of this offering, and although it is more similar to lead singer John Schlitt's two solo albums than to Petra's other efforts, hard-core Petra fans will find a happy surprise late in the album with "St. Augustine's Pears", which is classic Petra if anything is. There is funk here ("God Fixation"), headbanging rock ("A Matter Of Time"), and introspective ballading ("Shadow of a Doubt", "Falling Up", and the vaguely King's X-ish "Magnet of the World"), and the lyrics show an introspective maturity that surely reflects principal songwriter Bob Hartman's retirement from touring. Of all of Petra's albums (and I have them all), this is one of the most personal, and in my opinion, one of the most enjoyable.
