Editorial Reviews

To mark the occasion of this first-ever Winger "best-of," the band's original members reunited to record On the Inside -a song they wrote during the Pull sessions but never recorded! That joins another unissued bonus track plus their hits Seventeen; Headed for a Heartbreak; Miles Away; Can't Get Enuff; Easy Come Easy Go , and nine more of their hard-rockin' best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation December 29, 2001
By Brad
Format:Audio CD
Winger was much maligned for the few years they were big, and undeservedly so. The members of this band are educated in music and are among the best in their crafts. The quality shows through on this fantastic compilation showcasing their brief run.
I find interesting the order in which the songs are put on this CD. The first track, "On The Inside" is a new recording that seems to pick up right where the barely-noticed but awesome "Pull" album left off. Hints of a modern sound persist but the melody is still there. Next comes five straight tracks from "Pull"--their third and last album. Songs like "Blind Revolution Mad" and "Junkyard Dog" sound better than ever and remind me how much I liked the direction they were taking at that time while rock music was being overrun by grunge.
Then after an outtake track called "Hell To Pay", which was a solid track as well, the compilation picks up with five tracks from the second album "In The Heart Of The Young". Sure the big ballad hit "Miles Away" is included along with the rockers that were released, but I am especially happy that they included the wonderful song "Under One Condition" here, as to me this truly is a song that I would consider among "The Very Best of Winger".
Ironically, the material from the first album is stuck at the end with the last four tracks--all of which had videos and charted in the top 100. Songs like "Seventeen" and "Hungry" still are a lot of fun to listen to, but for sure the band refined their sound since then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mix from the often scorned Winger April 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: Kip Winger (lead vocals, bass), Reb Beach (guitars), Rod Morgenstein (drums & percussion), Paul Taylor (keyboards - 1st and 2nd albums only), John Roth (guitars on track 1 only).

THE DISC: (2001) 16 tracks clocking in at approximately 73 minutes. Included with the disc is a 14-page booklet containing song titles/credits, several band photos, 9-pages of band history from writer Doug Ling (Classic Rock Magazine), studio album cover artwork, what songs came from which albums and year released. This compilation follows the band from 1988-1993 (with the new song - track 1 - being recorded in 2001). Elements from each of the band's studio album artwork appear on this 'Best Of' cover. Label - Atlantic Recording Corp & Rhino.

COMMENTS: I know I'm not alone here... but to this day, when Winger comes to mind, I still think of Beavis and Butthead making fun of the geeky kid Stewart next door (while Beavis and Butthead wore their Metallica and AC/DC t-shirts, Stewart was often found wearing a Winger t-shirt). It's too bad - because Kip Winger & Company had some great tunes. The musicians were extremely talented - all the guys can play. As much as this was Kip Winger's band, listen to Reb Beach tear it up on guitar - the guy could shred with the best of them. Ever since I heard his guitar work on "Seventeen" (beginning, middle solo and ending) I was a fan - including his albums with Dokken. Drummer Morgenstein is an accomplished lefty behind the kit - honing his chops in the 70's with the Dixie Dregs and several side projects, including teaming up with Dream Theater's Jordan Rudess in 1997. Kip Winger is no slouch on bass - he's put in his time too with the likes of Alice Cooper, Kix, Jordan Rudess, Bob Dylan, Twisted Sister, Fiona, and several solo projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars For your collection January 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a Winger fans, but I like this album as for my CD collection. The sound quality is superb, the music is fine, the package (booklet) is carefully prepared. If you want something good to complete your rock collection, this is it. So my conclusion:
Sound quality: ***** (perfect in tonal balance/see About My Area for remarks)
Performance: **** (the best of Winger, if you like 80s Rock)
Presentation: ***** (well designed, lenght of sleevenote)
Overall, it deserves 5 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Winger Rulz! December 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In high school I hated Kip Winger because he was prettier than my girlfriend. Now I have nothing but the deepest respect for this man and the unparalleled artistry of his music. This album has all the butt-rockinest hits from the eponymous breakthrough album, Winger, as well as the other album with the cover art that reminds me of my old Journey vinyl LPs. The previously unreleased track kicks all-world (***) too. Even the presence of the power ballad Miles Away can be forgiven, as it reminds me of the aforementioned girlfriend and how "romantic" she became after listening to schmalzy hairband love songs. (You may also wish to see my review of Skid Row first album with the hit single, I Remember You, for the graphic details.) Buy this album now, so that you too can relive the days when three chords, hair extensions, and spandex were all you needed to become a true icon of rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars This isn't wimp rock, this is true talent from the band September 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have all three Winger albums - Winger, In The Heart Of The Young, and Pull and bought their greatest hits cd. They are all good. Kip Winger, Reb Beach, Paul Taylor, and Rod Morgenstein put a lot of time and effort and care into all the songs and it shows when you listen to all four albums. On the other hand they are very talented musicians. Also, I love the guitar sounds on each album because they really stand out. I'll drink a beer to this greatest hits compilation.
