As an avid fan of 80's metal, I try to get my hopes up when a classic 80's band releases a new CD. Well, this might just be the best release from an 80's band this side of 2000. Wow! This CD has that late 70's metal sound made popular by AC/DC, Judas Priest, and of course, Whitesnake. The album starts with a blow-your-hair-back version of "Best Years" and just continues right on to "Can you hear the wind blow." Coverdale still has that voice that just makes it work. Really, this is his best work since Slide It In and Whitesnake (self titled.) Give yourself a treat and give this a listen.

First off, I'm a huge Whitesnake fan. However, I thought most of the album was somewhat bland. There are some nice songs on here, but most are just average. I like Doug Aldrich's guitar work, although his solos are just a fluster notes that don't really grab the listener...they don't add anything to the song. I'm just sad that there are no memorable guitar solos "ex. John Sykes". All around its good and the rhytms are nice and raw, it will get your foot tapping.

For fans of the late 80's Whitesnake/David Coverdale material (the 1987 album, "Slip Of The Tongue" and Coverdale/Page) this should go over well - in fact I think it may be better than some of those albums. David Coverdale's voice isn't as great as it was in the early 80's, but it's not bad (less raspy than on Coverdale/Page, I think), and most of this album has a lot of high energy groovin' on it. There's 2 weak ballads on the first half (like the stuff they did in the late 80's), and a decent one at the end, plus a slowish blues (that's pretty good), but the rest of it really rocks - I find myself inclined to speed if listening in the car! The new lineup (like the aforementioned albums, this one only contains the singer from other Whitesnake albums, but nonetheless feels like Whitesnake) is great - the overall sound is a modern update (thicker, bassier, and heavier than the 80's sound) of the blues-rock late-80s Whitesnake sound. They're back to a 6-piece (with 2 fine guitarists, and a keyboardist who tends to be back in the mix). If you're considering buying this (unless you're hoping to a return of the early Whitesnake vocal and musician style, which this is not), do so - you're probably going to be very pleased.
