All guitars, bass and drums are performed by Robert Sweet, all songs are written by him too. The vocals here are handled by Larry Worley (ex-Fear Not & Love Life). Interpretation of the artwork: Cartoon drawing of a teenage girl tearing up a picture of RS with posters of RS on the walls. Fans were confused by the meaning when this first came out. This was RS's depiction of how Hollywood marriages are thrown away like trash. "If I were a garbage man. If this world were a garbage can. You'd be my Love Trash." Light handed lyrical approach to this subject in most of the songs. This album had some decent reviews but did not kickstart his solo career the way he hoped. It was not promoted. Kinda sad as there is some very good music within in. I found 'The F Word' to be the most enjoyable song, you guessed it, it's a song about forgiveness. The title track is currently the only song from this album on YouTube. This album is increasingly difficult to track down for a decent price. It came with RS Freakin stickers and an offer to order a RS Freakin shirt.

If you haven't guess already, this is the same Robert Sweet from Stryper fame. Robert lent his amazing musically abilities to many bands after Stryper called it quits in the late 90's. Eventually Robert decided to released this self financed independent CD. Very hard to find on the secondary market these days, this CD is a departure from the traditional Stryper sound. While I personally love Stryper, I like the different projects many of it's band members went on to. Robert handles all of the musical instruments on this album, which vocals by Larry Worley of Love Life / Fear Not fame. I didn't know that Robert could play the guitar, let alone play so well. Musically this album has a good modern rock sound. I love Larry's vocals. If the chorus' had a little more harmony you could mistake this for another Fear Not album.

YouTube didn't have many tracks available to listen too, but the whole album is currently available to listen to courtesy of last.fm. I got lucky and found the CD on eBay for $8.99. A quick Google search shows that Amazon has it in stock (as of this post). See link at bottom of post.

In addition to playing all the instruments on the album, Robert also wrote every song and produced the album. In the liner notes he included a little commentary for each song. I like it when artists share things like this as it gives you an idea of what the song is about, why they wrote it or where they may have been coming from when the song was written.

Help Me To Help Myself

A modern day rock & roll prayer, this song's about the classic human struggle, the tug of war of the mind, the act of asking for God's intervention.

Love Trash

"Love Trash" refers to the everyday throwaway Hollywood relationship, where "true love" is here today and gone tomorrow, musically wed to a comic twist..?

The F Word

Well, I'm afraid this one's way too obvious. "The F Word" is about forgiveness.

Any Enemy

In other words, "Any Enemy" is a hate-resisting, tongue-twisting, anti-enemy anthem.

Sweet Betrayal

I wanted to write some music that was beautiful yet eerie, with the feel of a "Phantom of the Opera", or Mozart's "Requiem". I thought the perfect subject for this song would be one of the most tragic experiences in life - Betrayal.

Me, Myself and You

This one's about the special feelings I felt the first time I looked into the eyes of my wife, my daughter, my son and the Shark Chicken.

I'm *******

Without GOD we're screwed!

Best Regrets

Just a short list of my life's favorite tragedies expressed with a super distorted guitar and a set of the world's most expensive BONGOS.
