Mylon LeFevre & Broken Heart – Sheep in Wolves Clothing – 1985

This was Mylon’s fourth album after his switch to Christian music. It was well received and paved the way for his best selling album to be released next (Crack The Sky). I feel the album was poorly engineered as the songs have a rock feel but not a sound to match. I am guessing that label (Myrrh) wanted it toned down but I have no proof of that. It’s just a suspicion given Myrrh’s track record on these matters. The mix was done by Joe Hardy who had worked with ZZ Top among other hard rock acts in the past so I doubt it was his doing . Anyway back to the album. I have actually read that some die hard fans consider this to be his best album and I agree that there are some great cuts that’s for sure but frankly the production was too poor for me to hold this album up as his best. My favourite track is “Gospel Ship” on which Mylon was allowed to rock. It has a bit of a traditional sound but it’s great. I have to mention the guest stars on this album. It really is an unbelievable list. Among the all stars contributing in some way are Rick Cua, Philip Bailey, Kerry Livgren, Leon Patillo, Greg X. Volz, Jerome Olds, Joe English, Larry Norman, and Russ Taff. That’s quite the group of guests.

One thought on “Mylon LeFevre & Broken Heart – Sheep in Wolves Clothing – 1985”

  1. Thanks, Ray. My favourite on this album is He is Strong. Reminds me of my life at 18 (50 years ago) when I believe God miraculously led me to Proverbs 7 when I was about to make a tragic decision. Wasn’t long after that I surrendered my life to Christ. Next for me is I Will Rejoice. Closest to my heart of all Mylon’s songs is Lamb of God (“Father God, in the name of Jesus help us to face the music”)
