Winger is easily the most maligned metal band in history. Wiped out by Nirvana, ridiculed by Beavis and Butthead, singled out for hostility by Metallica. In part, they deserved it. The pretty boy dancing in the videos, the big hair, Kip's unfortunate turn in Playgirl magazine. "She's Only Seventeen" will haunt them forever.

Forget all of that. Forget that you even know what these guys look like or sound like. This album contains what is arguably 10 of the most well crafted metal songs of the 90's. Incredible musicianship (as always), pop-sensible songwriting, and choruses and riffs so memorable it would make Lennon and McCartney proud.

Stop and consider who these guys are without all the hairband MTV hoopla. Kip Winger - Alice Cooper's bass player. Red Beach - classically trained virtuoso who stepped up to fill the gigantic shoes of George Lynch in Dokken. Rod Morgenstein - drummer of the 70's prog-fusion masters The Dixie Dregs (not to mention drummer for Jelly Jam with John Myung (Dream Theater) and Ty Tabor (King's X). These are three incredibly accomplished musicians and one of the tightest trios ever assembled. It shows on every tune, as does the hit making magic of the Winger/Beach writing team.

HIGHLY recommended for Winger fans, and necessary for the Winger haters. Grunge had wielded it's grimy sword by the time this band redeemed itself from it's hairspray past. This album stands above all others as an example that the image is nothing, the songs are everything.

Winger... man, they just never get or got enough respect. Yes, this is the band that gave you "Seventeen" and it was a bit lyrically cheesy. Or perhaps you didnt like the boringly standard ballad "Miles Away". But, even from prior albums there were brilliant songs like "Under One Condition" that were unique and tragically overlooked as singles. Pull takes that concept into a full album of incredible songs... and even took Winger into some of the heaviest songs they ever laid down. Most importantly the songs are complex musically and lyrically without ever losing the ability to easily grab you. The musicianship is also absolutely top notch. Blind Revolution Mad, like many songs on the album, will tease you with its lighter intro before opening up into a straight out rocker. In fact, I think on first listen some might be taken back by just how much acoustic guitar is prevalent on this album (I know I was at first)... but, just stick with it... because once you absorb this album, you will never look back on the acoustic work as a negative in this case. Junkyard Dog nearly reverses the slow to heavy form on some of the other songs with being nice and heavy most of the song only to mellow out more in its ending (which is essentially a whole other song)... but it is done in a way that is extremely cool. The Lucky One remains my all-time favorite song lyrically... its just a clever way of constructing the message without being overly intellectual as some try to do in order to make their lyrics "impressive". It's also a beautiful song... and you can feel the pain in it. No Mans Land is another favorite of mine... nice and heavy, and driving, and yet very melodic... pretty much exactly what I prefer in a song. Down Incognito, the main single is a great song as well.Read more ›

This album came out in 1993--a year by which metal had truly been overtaken by the grunge thing. No one even noticed when this thing came out. All I ever heard on radio was "Down Incognito"--and that was only a few times. It just goes to prove that the corporate powers that be don't have a clue about real talent. I love all three of the Winger albums, but to me they progressed musically with each album. This album was their most serious album for sure, but it just rocks. "Blind Revolution Mad", the opening track, was an instant hint that this album was going to be different. "Spell I'm Under" is a ballad--but a different and more powerful sounding one than preceding Winger ballads. Several have raved about "Junkyard Dog (Tears On Stone)". I agree wholeheartedly--this is one amazing rock track. All of these tracks are in fact worth a listen. A surprisingly mature effort from a band that has always been a joy to listen to. Sometimes when a hard rock effort puts out a "mature effort", it simply means they have lost their edge. Not so here. Great and unique effort for a band that deserved a lot more credit than it ever got.

Ah, Winger. The poster boys for chick-friendly hair metal in the 80's. I think their fate was sealed when the wimpy neighbor kid Stuart - who always sported a Winger t-shirt - was introduced on MTV's Beavis and Butthead cartoon. I'll let you in on a little secret though: Winger was good, and I mean really good. Every member of the band was a highly skilled musician, and they had the perfect grasp of what made the late 80's melodic rock sound work.

1993's Pull was the band's third album. It didn't have any MTV-ready hits like "Seventeen", and by 1993 no one was really paying attention to this kind of music, but that didn't stop the band from releasing what is probably their finest album. Pull showcases a tighter, more mature Winger. Pull is a very well written melodic rock album, reminiscent of bands like Bon Jovi and Mr. Big that knew when it was time to outgrow their hair metal phase. Songs like Down Incognito, Spell I'm Under, the Lucky Ones, and Like a Ritual are worlds removed from Winger's early days, and show just how far Kip Winger and Reb Beach had developed as songwriters. In a perfect world, Pull would have been the album that made people take a second look at Winger. Instead it came and went with little fanfare while the music industry was replacing spandex and hairspray with flannel and angst.

If you're an 80's rock fan, you really need to get this album. Forget what you think you know about Winger (especially if it's primarily the video for Seventeen). They're a better band than anyone thinks.

NOTE: Wounded Bird reissued Pull in 2005. The reissue does not include any bonus material, and it has not been remastered, so if you have an older copy of the album there's no need to replace it.
