    White Snake was no more than an opening act before this album. Coverdale always got the best musicians to play with but the song writing was pretty boring. This album was really almost perfect from a song writing standpoint. Those who think they sold out are simply die hards for an outdated style of music that Coverdale refused to let go of until slide it in.

      White snake has always been a David Coverdale solo act who gave himself a band name. No sense of loyalty or unity which is a shame. Great music but…. makes me dislike the guy alot

        From what I heard … John Sykes and others in the band wanted to replace Coverdale when he was recovering. They didn’t want to wait and wanted to find a new singer. That is why he wanted to get rid of them.

    This classic album is a perfect example of combining some really magnificent guitar driven compositions peppered in with some dynamic power ballads with the added related promotion of MTV to further boost to where it went in sales. The previous ‘Slide It In’ was another extraordinary album with a more bluesy style combined with Coverdale’s superb vocal range and delivery but this ’87 classic really pushed them up notches commercially.

    I hope John Sykes got all the royalty cheques he deserved for writing almost all of the songs, he also should sue for the use of his playing being mimed in the film clips this is completely illegal without his written permission, my estimation of David Coverdale sank to zero when I heard of this treachery, he was even too gutless to tell them to their faces, they turned up for the start of the live tour to support the album and were turned away by the Security / Roadies and informed of their demise………disgraceful.

    This is an interesting review and this album is indeed a bit of a “sell out”. I for one preferred the “British Blues ” style of their earlier albums. However posting a picture of Europe in the heart of the article is a massive blunder on the part of this website.

    Hey, you have the wrong picture in there. That’s Europe, not Whitesnake.

      Thanks for pointing that out, JD. We’ve updated.
