Product Description

When Whitesnake broke into the spotlight with Slide It In (1984), a battalion of cynical critics predicted the band's success couldn't last, but Coverdale and company silenced all the naysayers with 1987's self-titled album, which rocketed to No. 2 on the Billboard album chart. The record was driven by the pumping rocker "Here I Go Again" and the tender power ballad "Is This Love," but the band's mainstream appeal might have had as much to do with their unabashedly sexual videos as with their bubblegum metal. The clips, which seemed to splash across MTV every 20 minutes, starred Coverdale's girlfriend and B-movie actress Tawny Kitaen, and highlighted her busty, scantily clad body in various provocative poses. Volume and T&A--a metalhead's wet dream. --Jon Wiederhorn

Whitesnake released one of their best albums in the late 80s and this album has to be considered a classic. In the still of the night is one of the most powerful rock anthems of all-time and it's catchy. It is one of the best songs from Whitesnake. The power ballad, Here I Go Again, was their first and only #1 single on the Hot 100 Singles chart. The power ballad, Is this love, should have been #1 single. Whitesnake delivers the goods with this album!! This is one album that every fan of Whitesnake should have. Whitesnake rocks!!

Can vintage pop metal from the 1980s be taken seriously by adults? Sometimes, yes. Case in point: Whitesnake's eponymous 1987 album, which catapulted them to international success and made them one of the top bands of the late eighties.
This album is the result of the songwriting collaboration between singer David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykes, and it has everything one could ask of good pop music: melody, wit, energy, and immaculate production. Coverdale is in very fine voice, and Sykes' guitar playing--well, it simply must be heard to be believed. This man is a virtuoso's virtuoso; his fingerwork alone is worth most guitarists' tapping. One scintillating solo follows another, but the fireworks are always in the service of the songwriting, which is largely first-rate.
Unfortunately, David Coverdale's personality is not one that cultivates collaborative bliss. By the time this album was released, Sykes had been fired and the Whitesnake lineup was completely transformed. Indeed, the big hit off this album, "Here I Go Again," was a recycled 'Snake song from the 1982, and featured a solo from Sykes' replacement, Dutch guitarist Adrian Vandenberg (and a fine solo it is). That said, this is still very much Sykes' album, and an enormous accomplishment at that.
Who knows what heights Whitesnake would have reached had Sykes stayed and continued to write with Coverdale. The band's follow-up, "Slip of the Tongue" (1990), was relatively lackluster, despite some good tracks, and they never again reached the level of this album. Oh, well--at least this still makes good listening. Even for people who are now older and wiser.

i never got to see these guys in concert unfortunately.
but let me tell you about their lineage as a band. first and foremost, these guys are the best band ever. ok, well maybe not EVER, but they are in my top two. the other band is quiet riot.
and these two always compete for my utmost love. and the funny thing is that both bands had one thing in common: RUDY SARZO! THE BADEST MF BASS PLAYER ALIVE! i mean just as a for instance, this man could play his bass with his one hand upside down for pete's sake!
if you think more modern bands like radiohead or led zeppelin [man i ALWAYS hear lead ballon on the radio, that's why radio sucks so bad] or creed are where it's at, then you just need to give this cd a spin because i'll tell you something - if you thought 'ok commodore 64' by radiohead was 'ahead of its time' or 'innovative' then you haven't listened to this cd, which you should buy.
and just look at whitesnake videos for pete's sake, not only do they have some of the best of their live concert footage, but they also have that sexy sexy redhead writhing on the hood of a car, making you wish that was you. her name is tawny kitaen. she was in a movie called witchboard.
so if you don't quit fooling around and admit to yourself how much this band truly ROCKS you need to check yourself at the door.
i'm serious.

Whitesnake's self-titled album was one of the best of the late 80's hair metal era and it's easy to see why. Every song here is great as lead singer David Coverdale and guitarist John Sykes molded Whitesnake from a good rock band still reminiscent of Deep Purple to a good rock band which balanced songs based on memorable riffs with heartfelt power ballads with equal aplomb.
Ironically, Sykes left the band after this album's recording. Soon after, Coverdale formed a new Whitesnake with guitarists Vivian Campbell and Adrian Vandenberg, bassist Rudy Sarzo, and drummer Tommy Aldridge and made a series of slickly produced videos starring Coverdale's girlfriend actress Tawny Kitaen. These videos received extensive airplay on MTV and exposed the band to a new generation of hard rock fans. All of the tracks here are very good. The power ballads "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love?" were tailor-made for radio and became huge hit singles. The popular tracks "Bad Boys", "Crying In The Rain", and "Still Of The Night" were based on strong, catchy riffs, with the latter very reminiscent of Led Zeppelin. All of these tracks are very strong, even if "Is This Love?" is on the sappy side. But the lesser known tracks are just as good. "Give Me All Your Love", "Straight From The Heart", and "Children Of The Night" are all great arena rockers and "Don't Turn Away" could have been another huge hit as this ballad was just as good as "Here I Go Again." This is one of the best hard rock albums from the late 80's and is easily their best work. Highly recommended.
