Pure Snake Venom!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Good To Be Bad (Limited Edition Box) (2CD) (Audio CD)
An excellent return by DC and company. Have just given this it's first spin at high volume and this is my initial reaction.
The first three tracks smash your eardrums to pieces before a let up in the pace with "All I want All I need". I can see "Can you hear the wind blow" becoming a firm favorite with the whitesnake faithful. The record gets more whitesnake in the mid and later sections, "All for love" sounds like it could well have been taken straight from "1987" and "A fool for love" smacks heavily of crying in the rain.
Anyone who knows about Doug Aldrich will quickly realise from the opening track that this record has got his fingerprints all over it. DC is on fine form and the band sound great.
All in all a mighty fine effort, I reckon after few spins we will love it almost as much as 1987.
If this is to be DC's last record he has definitely gone out all guns a blazing. But if he can still produce stuff this good I hope (and I won't be alone in saying this) that he can find enough snake venom left in the tank for one last hurrah.
