Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I remember sitting at home watching MuchMusic in July of '87. The Power Hour was on and they played "Here I Go Again". It was my first time hearing Whitesnake and I hit "record" on the VCR.

This was and still is a great album, although it was a lot heavier than I expected back then. Also, if you're from the 80's you'll remember this, the cassette was so tight that it always played slow in my tape deck. So it always sounded frickin' awful for me and it wasn't until I picked it up on CD sometime in the 90's that I really gave this album a chance.

It's overproduced all to hell, even excessive by the standards of the time. But my God it does some crunch to it. John Sykes on guitar saw to that. Neil Murray remains on bass, but buried inaudibly beneath a very thick muddy mix. Aynsley Dunbar subbed in on drums, a very busy drummer, but it actually works. There are a few moments, particularly during "Crying In The Rain", where he overdoes it, but in general he was exactly the kind of drummer needed to elevate the album to this calibre.

If you're looking for the radio hits, they are pretty much all on this album, so just click "buy". But this album goes beyond the four hit singles. The afformentioned "Crying In The Rain" (a re-record from a Saints An' Sinners album track, same as "Here I Go Again) is a crucially important album track, as is "Don't Turn Away", a rocker/ballad closer that has some of Coverdale's best singing. But wait, there's more. The album has included the addition of the two songs that are usually only available on the UK version: "You're Gonna Break My Heart Again" (awesome fast rocker, totally album worthy) and "Looking For Love" (ballad).

Format:Audio CD
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!!

I've had this album in three different formats and it's still sounds great today, more than 25 years after it came out. Pure hard rock. Great rockers like "Still Of The Night" and softer tunes like "Is It Love?". If you haven't heard this album by now or at least some of the tunes, where have you been?

They don't make music like this anymore. I remember when I had this on tape, and listen to it so much that it wore out. Brings back some great memories.

4.0 out of 5 stars The bad boys of pop metal! June 6 2004
By Nathan
Format:Audio CD
This band joined the pop metal scene in the late 1980's with bands like Def Leppard, Cinderella, Skid Row, Dokken and Accept. This album is musically, and lyrically brilliant, John Skyes is the main man of this album, with taking credit of writing of most of the songs on this album (excellent guitar work by this guy, you have to give credit where credit is due) and with David Coverdale backing him up with the vocals, and even contributing in some of the songwriting as well. There is a bit of romance with the song "Is This Love," you probably could have heard this one played at a highschool prom for one of those nice slow dance songs; and this band is also the makers of that overplayed, but excellent hit, "Here I Go Again," which is still being played on the radio today. In conclusion, if you want to get into Whitesnake, or even the pop metal scene, then this album is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely intelligent buttrock. May 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.
