Top Customer Reviews
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").
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.
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.Read more ›

This is very blues oriented,soul filled,and rockin cd. This cd is a very tight yet plain hard edged rock and roll album. This is classic rock at it's best. A VERY GOOD CD.Published on Dec 11 2009 by Donald Francis Sweete
