Taking its place as one of the finest CCM albums ever recorded, The River Is Rising also marked the beginning of the Greg X Volz solo career after departing Petra in 1985. Carefully walking a tightrope between flat-out rock 'Barrier' and radio-friendly fare such as the title track, Volz also shows a flare for the experimental, as in the neo-techno pop of 'Break Out Of The Trance'. All of the factors adding up to 'classic' are present on this breakthrough release.
