Editorial Reviews

The love and passion for their music has never faltered.
Re-charged and re-focused, Great White channels their
raw, sweet and all-at-once dangerous sound into their
soon-to-be released new collection. Set to come out in
May 2012 on Frontiers Records, Elation is the band s
12th studio album. Elation thrives on Great White s
signature grit and blues-hued sound, only marked with a
new synergy.
Featuring original members, Mark Kendall (guitar),
Michael Lardie (guitar, keyboards), Audie Desbrow
(drums) and joined by lead singer Terry Ilous and bassist
Scott Snyder, the group emerged unscathed from late
2011 band member changes. Best known for the 1989
smash Once Bitten, Twice Shy, Great White s worldwide
sales are approaching 10 million. Their song arsenal also
includes Rock Me, Save Your Love, The Angel Song,
Mistabone and more!
Elation is just the recording of what live audiences will
see and hear from a band on a new mission.
Also, look out for Shark Tales - The Tell All Book: 30
years of Rock and Roll and Great White rocking in a city
near you in 2012!

So it's come to this: the first Great White studio album without founding member Jack Russell. If you've been following the whole sordid mess, you know that the band unceremoniously dumped Russell, making a whole lot of dirty laundry public in the process. XYZ singer Terry Ilous, who had been filling in for Russell on recent live dates, was brought on full-time, and Jack was left to go back to the spinoff "Jack Russell's Great White." It was a mess all around, and that makes it awfully hard to give Elation a fair shot. For my part, I'm on Team Jack, but I like Ilous's work in XYZ and I haven't skipped a Great White album yet.

I've listened to Elation a few times now, but to be perfectly honest I knew about a song and a half into this thing that it just isn't a real Great White album. Jack Russell was more than just the voice of the band, more than just a key songwriter. He brought the heart and soul to Great White. All the years, all the miles, all the heartache in the world was carried in his voice, and when he sang a love song by God you fell in love with whoever he was singing about along with him. Terry Ilous is a hell of a singer in his own right, and I'm not knocking his performance here. He gives us his best, but in the end this is not what Great White is supposed to sound like.

As for the songs on Elation, there are some decent ones. It's a solid enough blues rock album, and you can hear some of the vibe Back to the Rhythm and Rising had. The album is missing Jack Russell's touch here as well. His songwriting skills would have helped turn this from a solid but forgettable barroom rocker into something memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terry Ilous does a excellent job on vocals. August 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
The simple fact of the matter is Jack Russell chose drugs over his band and even his own health. So there's nothing wrong with them going on without him. Another simple fact is even though Jack was there at the start (When Great White was just another LA hard rock band trying to get signed) Mark , Audie & Michael contributed an equal share (If not more)to the band becoming sucessful. So just like Journey & Styx they went out and got a guy who sounds just enough like the original singer (Without being a copycat)to keep on making music. I would of given it 10 stars if I could. On the first listening you can tell this is Great White music from beginning to end. And with the crap that passes for hard rock music these days this album is a breath of fresh air. I have nothing against Jack. In fact I own both of his solo cd's but he needs to let this go (As well as his die hard fans who trash this album for no good reason) Jack can make it on his own name and will no doubt put out a good album next time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly Worth Buying June 10, 2012
By P Sybe
Format:Audio CD
Great White had no choice but to replace Jack Russell on vocals. I've seen Jack at his best and his worst. The last show I saw with him in front was really bad. The first show I saw with Terry on vocals, all the energy was back and the band looked and sounded great.

With that sad, I must say that I bought Elation and have enjoyed it. The band seems to be enjoying the music again. Terry does alter the sound of the band some, but that's to be expected. I really like the songs "Just for Tonight" and "Promise Land". The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because they seem to be promoting "Something For You" as the flagship song. It's not a bad song, but others on the CD are far better.

As far as Jack goes, if his band comes to my area, I would certainly try to go see the show. But if Great White wants to be a working band and continue to put on high quality shows, it will have to be without Jack until he can show some stability in his life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid album, catchy tunes June 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Before I review the album, let's discuss 2 main issues people seem to have with this album:

1. "The band doesn't sound the same without Jack Russell"... Perhaps that's because Jack Russell is no longer with the band?! The band is now different and people need to deal with that one way or another. Publishing bad reviews because the band doesn't sound the same, when that should have been obvious even before playing the CD, is ridiculous. Criticize the music itself however you want, but stop reviewing it poorly just because Jack isn't there.

2. "They just don't sound like Classic Great White", or "I just wish they still sounded like Stick It"... Come on folks, their sound has been evolving in a more bluesy, rock and roll direction for what, 18 years now? It is time to stop acting surprised about that. Maybe you don't like the sound? That's fine, but it's crazy to act surprised every time you hear a more laid-back Great White album. If you want "Stick It", then go play that album.

All that said, I did like Back to the Rhythm and Rising, but I am enjoying this one more. The energy level is definitely up, and they just seem to be enjoying what they are doing more now. A couple of fillers, but mostly pretty solid. Their style has definitely evolved over the years... Fortunately for me, their musical style has changed very much the way my tastes have.

Some highlights on this album are:

Feelin' So Much Better - great hooks, bluesy, with classic Mark Kendall guitar work.
Shotgun Willie's - This is the type of song Bon Jovi would be doing today if they didn't suck for the last 15+ years.
Lowdown - Darker and aggressive. A bit different, but a really cool tune.
Just for Tonight - As close to the "classic" GW sound as we've heard in a long time. No Jack Russell, but Mark Kendall carries this tune.

Sure this new guy can sing and the band can play well. However, no Jack Russell, no Great White. Still, one of the most underrated rock bands from recent times.
