Kingdom Upside Down (1990)

Updated: Mar 8


Kingdom Upside Down is the fifth studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Morgan Cryar. It is the second and final release on Reunion Records in 1990. The album is produced by the team of Chris Harris and Mark Heimermann. Kingdom Upside Down is more upbeat and danceable than his previous album Like a River and features his first number one hit "Father." Cryar's next single "See You On the Other Side" would be an even bigger hit.


Years after its first release, "See You On the Other Side" gained a special meaning when it was included in a multi-media presentation following the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995 and subsequently played on mainstream radio stations across the nation. Kingdom Upside Down peaked at number 27 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. The album is out of print and is not available digitally. The tracks "Father," "See You On the Other Side" and the title song are the only tracks to appear on CD and digitally on his 1998 compilation album What Sin? A YouTube link to listen to the album is posted below this article.
