Editorial Reviews

Winger's Better Days Comin' is a logical follow up to the critically acclaimed Karma, which was hailed as one of the band's best releases of their career. Better Days Comin' is an amazing new record where the four band members: Kip Winger (ex-Alice Cooper), Reb Beach (Whitesnake), Rod Morgenstein (Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse) and John Roth (Starship, Giant) shine with an intense display of incredible instrumental and vocal prowess. A fine set of hard rock songs with an uncanny sense of melody and absolutely stellar musical performances.

Deluxe edition includes one audio bonus track and a DVD including a Making of the Album documentary and videoclips for Rat Race and Better Days Comin'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thinking man's rock music! April 22, 2014
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
Winger have always been a band you can rely on for quality musicianship and Better Days Comin' is their excellent new album that shows they still have a lot to offer fans of melodic rock. The album is produced, engineered, and mixed by band leader Kip Winger who has always produced high quality albums throughout his career. The sound is huge with lots of killer riffs and musical passages forming the basis for his strong and emotional vocals to cut through. Reb Beach and John Roth absolutely nail the guitar riffs and solos and Rod Morgenstein puts in another great drumming performance that brings life to each song. Highlights include the hard hitting opening track "Midnight Driver Of A Love Machine", the stunning riffs and keyboard textures of "Queen Babylon", the progressive sounding rock of "Tin Soldiers", the signature Winger rock groove of "Storm In Me", and the epic closing track "Out Of This World" that weaves a darkly building atmosphere leading to a huge guitar solo. The deluxe edition comes with the essential bonus track "Another Beautiful Day" and a making of the album short film along with film clips for "Rat Race" and "Better Days Comin'". Despite the fact that Better Days Comin' doesn't quite hit the brilliant heights of their previous album Karma, Winger have given fans a strong album that delivers everything you love about this highly musical group of rock survivors. Definitely one of the best albums of the year so far - 4.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Winger who had grown up from the 80's. April 22, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is really well thought out in terms of the guitaring. this is todays rock and roll without losing who they are(the group). So many lose their identity when they hit big time. Winger has stood the test of time successfully

4.0 out of 5 stars WINGER IS BACK WITH GREAT FOLLOW UP TO KARMA!! April 23, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The Album open ups with the car starting and you can hear Winger playing "Deal With The Devil" on the radio then kicks into the song "Midnight Driver of a Love Machine" Great way to start off the album! Queen of Babylon has a nice slow driving rhythm to it which slows things donw just a few beats, another great rocker. Then Reb Kicks in with "RAT RACE" a nice fast riffing guitar jam! Sounds like it should have been on Karma album! One of my faves! Then the title track "Better days Comin" another slow rocker with a nice bridge with great vocals and bass line! and did I say the production is nice and crisp? every instrument stands out! "Tin Soldier" this is a nice progressive vibe song with a piano intro then great melodies with Rebs great playing. "Ever Wonder" another slow jam with some nice keys and vocals by Kip I guess I would say the "Ballad" of the album. Well then things pick up again with the next track " So Long China" another great riffing driving down the highway kind of song! "Storm In Me" another excellent track heavy rhythms and hard rocker! drumming is superb on this track very Bonham like! "Be Who You Are Now" to me the weakest track ( IMO )
Then the Bonus Track "Another Beautiful Day" a short hard rocker which is one of my faves! then the album closes with a almost 7 minute song "Out of This World" Kip sounds really good on this track some nice acoustic passages intertwined then as it builds you know what's coming REB kicks a great solo outro to close the album, all and all a very good album I think this one will be a grower it's not as good as KARMA but still a very good album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mix Between IV and Karma April 23, 2014
By JCJanko
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I will start with my bias: I am a "new" Winger fan who started listening to the group when Karma came out. I knew a few songs from the 80's and 90's, but nothing extensive. I now own the entire Winger collection, and have seen them live.

With that said, the best way I can describe this album is a mix between IV and a little heavier version of Karma. Does that make sense? It has many moments of the progressive rock sound of IV, but at the same time, it has some very heavy rockers that are even deeper than the heaviest in Karma, but similar. In Karma, Reb Beach went off like he was never going to play guitar again. On this one, he and John Roth combine for a slightly different approach: more rhythmic, but not holding back at all. Kip's voice somehow sounds even better on this than on Karma. Drums are always amazing on Winger albums, but one thing I noticed on this one was a few times I thought Rod Morgenstein was trying to kill me with his playing. Extremely hard and driving at certain times. I love it.

They also slow it down a bit on a few songs, and have a funk-inspired sound in "Better Days Comin'". There is truly something here for everyone.

CONCLUSION: If you liked IV or Karma, you will like this. If you liked both, you will love this. The best part about the album is that you can tell the group is not trying to "be" anything. They are simply making music that they want to make, love it or leave it.

I've made my choice.
