Great White pulls off a highly enjoyable return to their roots in this, one of their most consistently solid efforts to date. Disclaimer: I'm not a diehard fan of GW and own about half their albums. This instantly became my favorite due mostly to lack of filler. I'd rather have 12 strong songs that I enjoy straight through than 7 great ones and 5 clunkers, for example.

The insert is everything you'd imagine; obligatory thank you's, credits, a pic of the band and the always welcomed lyrics section. There is also a classy nod/dedication to the victims and survivors of the infamous "Station Fire." I don't know if any proceeds from the album go to a fund but that's beside the point. Back to the review!

Back To The Rhythm: Love it! It's the "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" of the album for me. Classic GW keyboard/guitar jam and fast-paced. Solid opener and a highlight. I dug the version released on their "Thank You, Goodnight" album and am pleased to see it's inclusion here.
Here Goes My Head Again: Co-penned by Jack Blades and Michael Lardie, another winner! Upbeat and catchy.
Take Me Down: Heavier, bluesier, more plodding but still enjoyable. This one was co-written by all the GW bros in the current lineup and took a few listens to grow on me. However, it did, and I'm diggin' it.
Play On: Another highlight! Also, featured on "Thank You, Goodnight," and I'm elated to see it appear here. The studio version found on BTTR is a little funkier in places and the keys are prominent. Fantastic!
Was It The Night: Sad love songs. Something about sad, bluesy love songs. I just like 'em. Another thumbs up!
I'm Alive: Well executed, positive love song.
Still Hungry: Didn't make a strong first impression. However, it wasn't bad either. Fast-paced.

If you're a fan of GW, then this whole album is very familiar. There aren't really any surprises, just more good solid content that is mostly in a similar style as some of their previous work. Overall, the album takes a little more relaxed, mature tone as opposed to being a hard-rocking album all the way through. It has it's strong tracks and not so strong ones too, but overall it's worth buying if you have previously enjoyed the GW sound. How many good ROCK albums are made these days anyway? Not many. If you enjoy traditional rock performed by skilled musicians, the rarity of that these days makes it worth purchasing all by itself - support the craft.

I'd forgotten how much I miss rock the way it was played back in the 80s. Back then I worshipped bands like Ratt, Guns n' Roses, Motley Crue and Def Leppard. I remember liking Great White's "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" but didn't have any of their albums (yes, back then we had the vinyl and maybe a cassette or two). This summer, I threw a huge 80s party and reconnected with the music I loved. I found myself really drawn to the blues-rock that Great White features; when I found they were releasing a new CD I preordered it immediately. I've not regretted the purchase. These guys still know how to rock! Give them a chance and I think you'll love what they have to offer!

To think that these guys were and still are grouped with the like of Ratt, Poison and Warrant never made sense to me. if anything I'd group them with the likes of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and maybe even the Black Crows or the Allman Brothers. I guess it was the time and how GW still tours with bands of the mid to late 80's pop metal scene.

At the start of thier career thier sound was stright ahead hard rock ala AC/DC. A few years later they add a little more keyboard sound and also a bluey feeling to the Albums like Once Bitten and Shot in the Dark. By the time 1989 came they were huge stars and the the Platinum ...Twice Shy they even had a top ten hit with the Ian Hunter cover (most people don't even know it was or is a cover) Once Bitten, Twice Shy. i would consider that record today to be a classic. Now by 1991 when Hooked was released, I have to admit that in 1991 at the age of 16 I really only liked a few of the tracks on Hooked. Aside from Call it Rock and Roll, Can't Shake it and Desert Moon, the whole record was very different and looking back today, I'm glad it was. In the years to come the band released 3 or 4 more great records that didn't hit well with the public and that is fine.

Now 2007 the new release Back to the Rhythm picks up where the last few left off. Great Guitar work from Mark Kendell, supurb vocals from Jack Russell (as good as he was on teh last solo album For You) Song writing lacks in some areas, but that is really the only flaw I have found and that is just my opinion. Play On should remain as a Great White concert staple as well as the Title Track being that it picks up where Twice Shy left off and the best part is that they wrote this one!

The best thing I could say is if your a Great White fan or not, you will NOT be disapointed with this CD.

This is as good as the "Can't Get There" album, and probably their best recording since 1992's "Psycho City". If you like their brand of blues-based hard rock, you will NOT be disappointed with this one. Standouts include the title track, "here goes my head again", and "standin' on the edge", but the whole album is particularly strong. No overly-modern or brand new style here, this is Great White simply doing more of what they've always done best.

These guys can still rock, as this effort proves, and I certainly hope they stick around for a long time.
