Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of The Final Battle:

“… I have come to expect now during this last decade that Stryper will deliver an amazing record time and time again that will be in contention for the album of the year. It’s hard to believe that Michael Sweet is able to come up with such great songs on five straight Stryper albums in a row, especially when you consider that he is involved in many other projects (Sweet & Lynch, SunBomb, Iconic and his own solo work). There goes the theory that it’s better to focus all your efforts on one band and come up with a great record rather than be involved in multiple projects and release mainly mediocre stuff. Truth be told, I find that Sweet‘s writing for Stryper is well superior to what he comes up with for his other projects.”
