5.0 out of 5 stars Classic hard, bluesy rock n' roll..... July 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I much prefer Whitesnake's bluesy late seventies/early eighties efforts to their later pop metal sheen, and "Saints & Sinners" is one of the handful of Whitesnake records that truly deliver the goods.
The combination of former Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale's enormously wide-ranging sandpaper voice and guitarists Mel Galley and Mickey Moody is superb on raw blues-rock numbers like "Victim Of Love" and the classic "Crying In The Rain", as well as on power ballads like "Here I Go Again" (the original version, not the re-recorded pop metal version from the "1987" album).
There is barely a weak track on this fine album - "Love An' Affection" and "Rock An' Roll Angels" are both irrestistable, sing-along barroom boogie, equal parts Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith at their most pop radio friendly. "Rough An' Ready" is pure raunchy machismo. And "Saints & Sinners" also features one of the band's most underrated songs (it doesn't feature on any album other than this one, not even the double-disc "Silver Anniversary" anthology): "Bloody Luxury" is an irrestistable slice of melodious hard rock, boosted by fierce boogie piano playing by Jon Lord, who also plays his customary organ on several tracks.
This is a fine collection of classic AOR, big blues-and-boogie rifs and great hooks, and it is definitely among the best three or four Whitesnake albums (along with "Ready An' Willing" and "Slide It In").

5.0 out of 5 stars A "forgotten" masterpiece March 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
Whitesnake's "Saints & sinners" is an album that somehow never got the attention it deserves. Everybody's talking about either their heavy metal effort "1987" (featuring John Sykes) or their hard blues rock masterpiece "Ready an' willing". But the truth is that "Saints & sinners" is a very very good album.
On this release you get the original versions of both "Crying in the rain" and "Here I go again" which Coverdale & Co re-recorded for the "1987" album. These original versions are better! "Bloody luxury" is a piano driven rock 'n' roll song, similar to "Wine women an' song" from the album "Come an' get it". There's also a couple of fast rhythm & blues based tracks like "Rough an' ready" and "Love an' affection". In "Rock and roll angels" as well as "Young blood", they guys are going for straight rock with no frills, and in the great "Victim of love" and "Dancing girls", they slow things down a bit but surely keeping the groove. This album should not be over looked.

4.0 out of 5 stars To not love this album would be a sin! May 28 2000
Format:Audio CD
Even though I haven't heard David Coverdale's work with Deep Purple, he always seems to have been born to lead a group of his own. He tried too much to mold Deep Purple into his image, causing them to lose their identity. So I'm not surprised when Deep Purple reformed, they rehired Ian Gillan while Coverdale was busy with his band Whitesnake. Not many people had heard of Whitesnake before 1987, and that's a shame because most of their best material is on albums like READY AN' WILLING (1980), SLIDE IT IN (1984), and SAINTS & SINNERS (1982). Most of the songs on here recall early Led Zeppelin, no surprise since David Coverdale looks a tad like Robert Plant. Songs like "Young Blood", "Bloody Luxury", and "Love An' Affection" are delightfully revved-up rockers that will certainly have you up and dancing. The two songs people will recognize first are "Crying In The Rain" and "Here I Go Again". But these aren't the hit versions which I think are much better. They sound a little too slow and bluesy, which even though this was Whitesnake's forte at this time, the two songs sound like mainstream pop metal tunes dying to get out. The lyrics to both are great, but the music is substandard. Those wanting to hear those two songs are better suited with WHITESNAKE (1987) and SLIP OF THE TONGUE (1989). SAINTS & SINNERS is one of the jewels of Whitesnake's pre-pop metal period. It would be a flawless one if not for those two early versions of songs that would get their due much later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Rock, falls on deaf ears. Feb. 2 2000
Format:Audio CD
If we are to count Whitesnake into the elite of rock, then, sure this album ain't no "Joshua Tree", "Physical Grafitti" or "...And Justice For All". But please, David Coverdale has a stunning voice for rock. Personally, except for "Spit It Out" and "Give Me More Time", from Slide It In, this album is way better than that album or Whitesnake (1987). The original versions of "Crying In The Rain" and "Here I Go Again" with it's "hobo" lyric are way better than John Sykes weak versions. Take a song like "Rock An'Roll Angels" better than Fleetwood Mac, just a notch below Aerosmith. "Dancing Girls", "Saints An'Sinners", "Victim Of Love" and "Young Blood" are get you movin' booty shakin' bounce it with a good lovin' honey rock songs. Get with it, Whitesnake "afficionados". Just go back to Snakebite and listen to "Steal Away" or "Queen of Hearts". Micky Moody is a guitar god! It's a shame David Coverdale didn't make Whitesnakes Greatest Hits a career retro, but an MTV greatest hits. Adrian Vandenwho?

3.0 out of 5 stars Competent Hard Rock July 29 1998
Format:Audio CD
SAINTS AND SINNERS is a good hard rock album. In the early eighties, Whitesnake was gradually changing from a typical british group of the seventies to a more american sounding arena rock act. If READY 'N'WILLING (recorded in 79/80) represented the best conceived and mature work of the "Old Whitesnake" phase and SLIDE IT IN (83)the best of the new approach, then SAINTS AND SINNERS(82) is an intermediary attempt, with median results.
The guys were very professional, part of the elite of the hard rock scene of the time. David Coverdale(vc), Cozy Powell(dr), Neil Murray(b), Jon Lord (kb)(much more discret than in Deep Purple, but always good) and the simple and efficient guitars of Micky Moody and Mel Galley. And they delivered some good rock music!
"Crying In the Rain" and "Here We Go Again" are strong songs. They would later reappear in the pop-metal classic album of 1987, but the original versions, if not so flamboyant, sound more hones! t. Instead of the ultra-fast metal solo of 1987'"Crying..." there's a sparse, echo-enhanced bluesy guitar screaming over a cool groove. In my opinion, the highlight of the album!
The opening with "Young Blood" and "Rough And Ready" really rocks, the band delivering powerful music and the lyrics with their "I'm gonna make you mine" confident and cocky attitude being exactly what sexist, stupid, subtlety-deprived rock music was supposed to be. Great!
But then you have some hard rock stereothipes ("Victim Of Love") and silly rock'n'roll ("Bloody Luxury")that are no memorable at all. The album goes on relying on the old formulas the band used more tastefully in previous albuns.
