Washes Whiter Than is a great album! The sound is softer than the previous two albums, but it's much more polished. With Greg X. Volz leading many of the songs, the vocals are much more appealing. There are two songs on this album many people have never heard, because they aren't available on the CD. StarSong issued both Never Say Die and Washes Whiter Than together on one CD, and the songs "(Couldn't Find Love) Without You" and "Magic Words" were cut to save space.

Mellow Side of Early Petra| Posted November 15, 2012
"Washes Whiter Than" came at a time when Petra didn't think the hard rock was gonna be successful in the Christian market. They wanted to experiment with a more radio friendly sound. And it worked. Here, Greg X. Volz and Rob Frazier share lead vocals.(This is Rob Frazier's only album with Petra). There are some good pop moments on this one. "Magic Mirror" is my favorite. However, overall, the album is too mellow for Petra. Great lyrics and vocals, though!
