Albenrezension

Good to Be Bad marks Whitesnake's 30th anniversary as a band — though frontman David Coverdale is the only original member. It's their first studio album since 1998's Restless Heart, which was never released in the United States. The current incarnation of Whitesnake is Coverdale, guitarists Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach, bassist Uriah Duffy, keyboardist Timothy Drury, and drummer Chris Frazier. Frazier is the band's newest member; the others appeared on 2006's Live...In the Shadow of the Blues. This is a seasoned road group, but it remained to be heard if they could pull it off in the studio. The answer is hell yes! Listening to this wondrous racket, it seems strange that such a timeless sound has vanished from mainstream rock — guitars just don't sound like this on records anymore. What's really weird is that this sound, as seemingly "retro" as it is in recalling the 1980s, is actually a real alternative to what's on corporate radio in the 21st century. There are some outstanding cuts here. "All for Love," the album's centerpiece, contains a majestic power chord intro. It evolves into the big bad four-note riff that the tune hinges on. It's got a killer rough-and-rowdy hook in the refrain that's trademark Whitesnake. Another killer arrives with the wild unhinged blues licks that open "Best Years." The tune's riff is an inversion of the Allman Brothers' "Whipping Post," and the verse is based on the same changes. This tune is one of the hardest rockers to come swaggering down the stadium rock alley in a dog's age. "Can You Hear the Wind Blow" features enormous guitars and shimmering keyboards that contrast with the blues wail in Coverdale's voice. There is déjà vu here, too: the hook is reminiscent of "Rock You Like a Hurricane" by the Scorpions.

Aldrich's guitar playing is a huge boon to the Whitesnake sound. He's obviously listened to Jimmy Page, and the slippery, knotty, and funky blues licks in tracks like "Call on Me" reflect that, but his sound with its effects pedals is more overdriven and bigger than life, offering the base for Whitesnake's core sound — straight-out festival rock, y'all. This wouldn't be a Whitesnake recording without a power ballad, and "Summer Rain" is a beauty. Coverdale sings a country-tinged melody; he's all vulnerable singing above a washed-out meld of acoustic guitars and a gently but insistently swelling organ, kissed by cymbals and a bass drum. Of course, there's an enormous electric guitar solo near the end to bring it home. Coverdale's voice is lower in the 21st century, but it's even more effective with this brand of hard rock. "A Fool in Love" begins with the sound of a crackling vinyl record; it gives way to pure balls-out blues-rock, with slide guitar in Brit metal overdrive. The closer, "'Til the End of Time," starts as an acoustic blues, but by the time the big tom-toms roll in and the keys weave through those guitars, it feels like something off Led Zeppelin III. Coverdale has always stuck very close to his blues-rock roots and continues to mine them; his brand of ROCK with chugging outsized guitars is palatable because of his reliance on crafting excellent choruses and hooks. It's a hell of a comeback and ranks right near the top of the Whitesnake catalog.

Here We Go Again

19 Jahre nach "Slip of the Tongue" kommt endlich wieder ein richtiges Whitesnake-Album auf den Markt ("Restless Heart" war als Solo-Album von DC geplant) - und es hält, was das Label "Whitesnake" verspricht: Erstklassiger Hard-Rock der alten Schule plus herzerweichende Balladen! Es gibt zwar keine Knaller wie einst "Here I go again" oder "Still of the Night" auf dem 87-er Album, aber alle 11 Songs lassen sich durchweg gut anhören. Das Werk erinnert insgesamt etwas an Coverdale/Page, gepaart mit klassischen Snakes-Elementen aus den 80'ern plus eine Briese traditionellem Snakes-Blues. Trotz der traditionellen Zutaten klingt das Ganze ziemlich zeitgemäß. David Coverdale's Stimme ist immer noch erstklassig und der neuen Band gelingt es - wie auch schon auf der Live DVD aus 2006 - den typischen Whitesnake-Sound einzuspielen. Zusammen mit "1987" und "Slide It In" ist "Good to be Bad" sicherlich das herausragende Whitesnake-Album! Für Fans des Classic-Rock ein "must-have"!

He's back!

Mr. Coverdale ist zurück! Und wie er das ist. Als wäre er nie weg gewesen. Er und seine Mannen haben nix verlernt. Schon auf "LIVE-In the shodow of the blues" waren schon 4 neue Songs zu hören die Lust auf mehr machten. Hard Rock at it's best. KAUFEN!

Einfach " Nur Gut , .eil und endlich wieder mal Zeit für etwas Neues !

Ich bin überglücklich das es etwas Neues von den Jungs gibt ! Dieses Album ist ein muß für jeden Fan von Whitesnake !!! Einfach genjal ! Ich bin froh das sie wieder da sind ! Album kaufen und genießen !!! Viel Spaß !

Genre: Rock

Jahre aktiv: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After recording two solo albums, former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale formed Whitesnake around 1977. In the glut of hard rock and heavy metal bands of the late '70s, their first albums got somewhat lost in the shuffle, although they were fairly popular in Europe and Japan. During 1982, Coverdale took some time off so he could take care of his sick daughter. When he re-emerged with a new version of Whitesnake in 1984, the band sounded revitalized and energetic.
