Biography

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 ... Read more in Amazon's White Lion Store

This is the best cd to get besides "The Best Of White Lion"!
A. Bouchard
OK, the title is about as contrived and cheesy as possible, but the album is really good.

Even today this album conjures up brilliant visions and deep emotions.

When I mention White Lion, their talented guitar player Vito Bratta or singer Mike Tramp, I hear from many people why they broke up and what they are doing now. I hope that this will be some help those of you WL fans who are wondering what happened to Vito Bratta, Mike Tramp, James Lomenzo and Greg D'Angelo.
But first let me say a few words about Mane Attraction, the band's (unfortunately!) last record released on Atlantic in 1991. After the somewhat unsuccessful Big Game, the band's songwriting duo Vito and Mike locked themselves up for a whole year and started writing the album. Because Big Game was released at a time when the band was really tired of having toured non-stop for over a year, and the band was severely criticised by critics, they took a year off and wrote Mane Attraction with full concentration. They shut their ears to their label about writing 'hit songs' to be released as singles and even wrote the heavy "Lights & Thunder" out of spite as an opening track. "Lights & Thunder" clocked in at over 8+ minutes with a long and beautiful instrumental section from guitarist Vito Bratta with Tramp's lyrics on social events as opposed to happy party songs. This was followed by "Warsong" inspired by the Gulf War and depicting a veteran's return to his hometown from war. Both songs were extremely heavy compared to the songs in WL's back catalog with dark lyrics, sharp guitar solos and fat bass lines. Rumour has it that Vito used a drum machine writing this album and drummer Greg D'Angelo, who at the time was on bad terms with the band, barely recorded his parts.
Shortly after the release of the album bassist Lomenzo and drummer D'Angelo left the band to be replaced by Tony Caradonna (Alice Cooper, Lita Ford) and Jimmy DeGrasso (Y&T, Megadeth).

I've been interested in Modern Rock/Electronix more than HR/HM, because I'm too young to belong to the generation of Heavy Metal in the 1980's. Well, a few years ago I accidentally listened to "Main Attraction" CD. When I listened to the song "Love Don't Come Easy" at first, I was so surprised of the compelling pop sense.
As a matter of fact, I used to get a little stereotype that "LA Metal or the other sorts of Metal stuff is all ...[junk]". But this album is not clumsy or cheap but absolutely riveting. This album is full of the gorgeous and introspective Hard Rock numbers(especially "Broken Heart" "Till Death to Us Part", "Farewell to You" are superawesome!).
Even though "Main Attraction" was wrapped up with a commercial disappointment, I think this is the best album of White Lion.

1991's Mane Attraction was the fourth album from melodic rockers White Lion, coming on the heels of the successful (but terribly uneven) Big Game. I had issues with Big Game (for every great song there was one that was equally bad), but Mane Attraction is the band's best overall album since Pride.

Mane Attraction is far more consistent than Big Game. There's almost no filler on this album. Unfortunately there are no real standouts either. It lacks the truly memorable songs that Big Game had to offer. As good as Mane Attraction's songs are, there's nothing at the same level as Cry for Freedom or Little Fighter on this album. Broken Heart comes close, but that's not really a new song, having appeared previously on the band's debut album Fight to Survive.

Unfortunately Mane Attraction didn't bring the band much success. Maybe it was the lack of a great single. Whatever the reason, the band members soon parted ways. Mike Tramp has kept the White Lion name active, but just not the same, especially without Vito Bratta.

I grew up listening to White Lion and especially this album. Even today this album conjures up brilliant visions and deep emotions. I guess the difference between those who adore White Lion and those who don't boils down to whether you feel their music. No doubt, they were not the best band around in the 80's. But, they made some beautiful music and that counts! Very few of the 'so called' great bands left such a lasting impression or had the feel of White Lion's melodies.

I guess I've become one of those old farts that says, "Back in my day, music had more melody and you could understand the words." But, jeez, how true is that? Back in the 80's, bands like White Lion were a little cheesy, but at least they could play. This band (and especially Vito Bratta) was truly underrated and unfortunately got lumped in with some of the disposable hair metal fluff of the 80's. It's too bad these guys aren't around anymore.

WL put out three albums in their first incarnation. And then there was a best of to round it all up. This album was the last o the three and it is very much more of the same good time loud and friendly AOR. Produced by Richii Zito this album has a soft and lush feel and actually adds a few extra tricks to the WL arsenal. Opener Lights and Thunder is an 8:09 minute song and as such is a touch uncommunicative to the bands target audience but it actually increases my respect for them. Other elements here are just what you'd hear on their earlier efforts in terms of gently rolling guitar and Mike Tramp not totally belting out - keeping it in check for the little girls in the audience. We do however get the rather grand Warsong which in terms of heaviness was previewed by If My Mind Is Evil from Big Game, both songs showing a psychological edge to teh band that would probably surprise some of their detractors.

And just like their earlier work the overall arrangements are brash but not too brash - and wow, just how underrated is/was Vito Bratta as he shades the WL catalogue with funky riffs, biting riffs and all sorts of quintessential 80's style solos (remember them?).

Not much more I can add. It's my gut instinct that most metal maniacs have guilty pleasure bands like this. If you fall into that category, or your bag really is heavy AOR stuff, then check out any of WL's albums because they may well be your ticket to a few good times on your next road trip where you can crank up that stereo and eat up the miles!
