Biography

Whitesnake are an English rock band, founded in 1977 by David Coverdale (formerly of Deep Purple). The band's early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple but by the mid 1980s Whitesnake had moved away from the early blues influenced hard rock to a more commercial heavy metal style. Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard rock band of all time by ... Read more in Amazon's Whitesnake Store

Throughout all Whitesnake's incarnations, the band has remained the Rolls Royce of rock: not the fastest or the flashiest, but possessing an innate quality that is universally recognised. Never has this quality been more obvious than on 'Forevermore', a spectacular album which blends the bluesy tones of Whitesnake's early material with a heavier, more modern groove.

Opener 'Steal Your Heart Away' shows in no uncertain terms that this is a band at the top of its game. Guitarists Reb Beach and Doug Aldrich crank out heavy blues refrains as Coverdale screams, in his trademark style, "I want it all. I want it now. I'm gonna beg, borrow, steal somehow." The track sees Cov on familiar ground, lyrically speaking; not pushing the literary envelope or making profound philosophical observations, but sticking to the woman-chasing themes that have been the mainstay of Whitesnake lyrics since day one.

'All Out of Luck' starts with a bluesy intro, heavy on the wah-wah, as Cov laments, "Here I sit, a broken-hearted man." Familiar lyrical territory again for the old master: when he's not chasing skirt, he's lamenting the one(s) that got away. The song is classic Whitesnake. Its bouncy, good-time groove segues into a guitar solo which features some seriously impressive widdling from Beach and Aldrich.

'Love Will Set You Free' is a workmanlike mid-paced rocker with a chugga-chugga riff. The track's fluidity and effortlessness fail to hide the reality that it's generic both musically and lyrically.

A Whitesnake album just wouldn't ring true without a ballad or three.

Whitesnake have been in the hearts and minds of rock fans since the late 70's, and DC has once again brought together the sort of talent that only he can. Another flawless blend of songsmiths, musicians and performers.

Whitesnake are unique. No-one has a back-catalogue like this band, and no-one has consistently produced material of such high quality. It's no surprise then that this latest release is an instant classic.

Like its predecessor "Good To Be Bad", it merges sounds and styles from their past into a "Whitesnake for the millennium" package - and what a package (as David might say).

More bluesy (in places) than the last album, but totally Whitesnake from its gut to its teeth. If you don't yet own it, listen to the samples and you will have no problem identifying the earlier albums that each song could have been slotted into. As with "Good to be Bad", each track has the punch and vitality craved by a 2011 audience who have been jaded by years of rubbish from other bands.

Picking favourites is hard, so I shortlisted 6 of the 13 - "Love Will Set You Free" [Cindy Coverdale = major babe], "Tell Me How", "I Need You (shine a light)" [a REAL road trip song], "Fare Thee Well", "My Evil Ways" [Whitesnake meets Roth era Van Halen] and "Forevermore". David's vocals on the title track, along with the tempo increase at 3:08 (reminiscent of Kashmir and several tracks off the first Blue Murder album) make the hairs on my arms stand on end.

Whilst I'd personally give "Good to be Bad" the slight edge (you can't fault an album that starts off with the positivity of "Best Years"), I would not want to be missing a track off either album in my collection.

Cards on the table,I would love to see the 1987 line up do some gigs and maybe an album together,but it will never happen.I wanted to tell you all that this was biz and that Dorothy' s next option would have to be a call to Murray,Dunbar and SYKES.Alas ,this is a good album with some good uptempo rockers and top ballads also.Its not perfect there are some filler tracks ,the bass is very hard to hear and as you 'd expect for an old man,OLD COV does struggle at times ,yet on the acoustic tunes where he comes down a key or 2 ,he sounds splendid.Highlights for me are the acoustic 'One of these days' and lead single 'Love will set you free'fantastic stuff,best heavy rock album of year so far!Unfortunately the 2 live BONUS tracks are awful from 1990 at Donington.The magazine is ok,but it SHOULD have had an interview from someone else from the 1987 era and NOT Adrian Vandenburg,who contributed very little to the actual '87 record.Sure,he can pout and pose & MIME fantastically well in the videos,but it's John Sykes' guitar and writing for much of that amazing album,not Vandenburg's and as Coverdale hated Sykes so much,if he thought Vandenburg could improve on what Sykes did,I'm sure he would have got him to re-record stuff.But he did'nt! As for after the album,not sure where Dave can go from here.Vocally,he appears to be struggling on some gigs .If he does another new album ,he should get a top notch producer & a sound engineer to give it a proper balanced mix.I would get Chris Frazier back on the drum stool,as he's a better, more melodic drummer than Bludgeoning Brian Tichy.Then there's the direction he should go.Read more ›
