Album Review

Pride was White Lion's breakthrough album, thanks to the Top Ten hits "Wait" and the gentle ballad "When the Children Cry," but the rest of the album is also well-constructed pop-metal, with little of the over-the-top, testosterone-heavy posturing of their peers, as well as a low sleaze factor. In addition to the socially conscious "Children," there are positive-vibes anthems like "Don't Give Up" and "All Join Our Hands," and you wouldn't catch Bret Michaels or Axl Rose bowing on their knees before the "Lady of the Valley." Of course, nice-guy attitudes won't be as major a selling point for many hard rock listeners as Vito Bratta's showy Eddie Van Halen imitations. Although these border on obsessive at times, Bratta's interesting acoustic guitar work keeps the sound varied, and he displays a welcome penchant for melodicism. All in all, one of the more overlooked '80s pop-metal bands.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding, Definitive 80's Metal

Vito Bratta's riffs and solos are unbelievable, the vocals are awesome, and the songs are all catchy as hell. i don't know a single person that i wouldn't recommend this too. the songs are just so good, and that's what it really comes down to. this my favorite 80's metal album of all time, and it really shuts up all the haters, because White Lion's songs aren't all about getting chicks like Poison, and the band members are all great players as well

Good Songs, Good Band Name

Hey, these songs are pretty good! Next chance I get to buy an album off of the iTunes Store, I'll come here. But I hear that they only put out a few albums. I think they should make more if they can because they're really good. That would make them more known to people who have never heard of White Lion and other bands like them before. At least they're still kind of popular. Clever band name, by the way. ;)

Best album of all time. I kept this tape in my car throughout my teens and more. Best guitar. Best songs. Best memories.

Of all the glam/pop-metal bands that crawled out of hair salons coast to coast during the mid- to late '80s, one of the more talented acts was New York's White Lion, led by singer Mike Tramp (originally from Denmark) and guitarist Vito Bratta. The group originally formed in 1983 and despite several bassists and drummers coming and going (including future Black Sabbath and Great White bass player Dave Spitz), the group managed to issue a debut, Fight to Survive, on the independent metal label Grand...
