Vocalist Doogie White is firmly convinced that "The Stranger Within is a fantastic sounding album with brilliant songs!" The former singer of Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen had a good feeling right from the start when he began developing vocal ideas for the songs: "When I listened to the instrumental demos for the first time in the spring of 2010, ideas occurred to me at once. I listened to the songs and immediately started singing. It was all perfect." Above all Deep Purple fans and Rainbow fans of the Dio-era will be really delighted with this hard rock album consisting of 12 songs lasting 66 minutes - and this album contains everything which enthrals fans of classic hard rock bands: powerful, memorable vocals rich in variety as well as brilliant and sometimes spaced-out solos of the guitar and the organ. Another strong point of the album is the fact that it is multi-faceted. With the song "The Best of Times" the band have a catchy hard rock ballad up in their sleeves.
