It was a better era. The hair was big, the music was melodic, the songs had guitar solos, the musicians actually could play, the pop stars wrote some of their songs, Madonna was still hot, supermodels were in, Nintendo was the video game system of choice, athletes were not juiced, gasoline cost under $1.00 a gallon, the Berlin Wall came down, our troops were not being hunted by Iraqi insurgents, I was not $100,000 in debt, etc., etc.

This cd captures the essence of that better time. It is the type of music that you listen to when you are driving in your car, with your windows down, on a warm summer night. All the songs on this album are upbeat, even the ones about broken homes and sunken ships. The general theme for this album is that people must rise up and overcome obstacles--such as potential breakups, political resistance, lost loves, long workdays, and tough family circumstances. Whatever life throws at us, we can handle, White Lion seems to be saying.

Oh, and the music is unbelievable. As everyone else has noted, Vito Bratta is a killer guitar player. I mean, that guy just rips. I have no idea how he is able to pull off some of those natural harmonics so cleanly. All of his guitar solos are technically amazing, and his rhythm playing is stellar as well. Based on his appearance and his virtuosity, there is little doubt that he dropped out of school at a young age and did nothing but practice trills, hammer-ons, bends and slides for fifteen hours a day. We the listeners are the beneficiaries of his hard work, as his playing on this album is a joy to hear.

Other posters have ripped vocalist Mike Tramp. Well, I will defend him. I think he does a great job with most of the songs, and he has a distinct voice that is perfect for pop metal.

Vito Bratta is one of the most underrated guitarists in the whole guitar history which is full of bad players considered "gods". Vito had a tremendous sense of melody, technique to sell, extraordinary rhythmn and harmonic chops, pure sense of blues. He recorded only four albums but in a so short space he established himself as a terrific gifted guitarist. This album is probably his best together with Pride. The music is classy , melodic, catching, technical, immortal super rock'n'roll. Unbelievable the fact that grunge trend killed a lot of fantastic talented bands like White Lion. Thanks Cobain, we really didn't need your horrible meanigless music. Vito, come back. Life is too short to hear bad music and bad guitarists.

THE BAND: Mike Tramp (vocals), Vito Bratta (guitars), James Lomenzo (bass), Greg D'Angelo (drums & percussion). Formed in New York City by Tramp (having just moved to NYC from Denmark) and Bratta (from Staten Island, NY).

THE DISC: (1989) 11 tracks clocking in at approximately 53 minutes. Included with the disc is a 6-page booklet containing song titles/credits, song lyrics, band photos, and thank you's. This is the band's 3rd studio album. Recorded at Amigo Studios in Los Angeles. Label - Atlantic Records.

COMMENTS: In the mid to late 80's several of rock's biggest bands like Def Leppard, Guns 'N Roses, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden, and Van Halen were stealing the headlines. Grabbing some attention, but not nearly enough, were the other long-haired glam rock bands of the time - Dokken, Mr. Big, Y&T, Enuff Z'Nuff, Bulletboys, LA Guns, and White Lion. In the late 80's I was living just outside Los Angeles - and the California bands simply dominated the big hair scene. I had grown up on Long Island and had all ready moved west by the time White Lion made the scene. Since White Lion did not make a big splash in California (my opinion only)... I sincerely hoped they were having more success in their native northeast. White Lion was all about emotion and melody. Tramp's throaty yet impassioned vocals, and Bratta's amazing guitar-work were always the highlights. Lomenzo in the background on bass and D'Angelo (ex-Anthrax) being the steady back bone - rivaling Sib Hashian (Boston), Hirsch Gardner (New England) or Bobby Rock (Vinny Vincent Invasion) for biggest afro behind the kit. I put Vito Bratta in the same category as John Sykes (Blue Murder, Whitesnake, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Thin Lizzy), Paul Gilbert (Racer X, Mr. Big, solo), Ritchie Kotzen (Poison, Mr.

I played this over and over again just for Vito's playing, some of the most incredible riffs I have ever heard. Some nice catchy tunes as well. Only thing, I never really got used to Mike Tramp's voice. I would buy any White Lion just for the pure enjoyment of listening to Vito play - and boy does he play, it is a thing of beauty!

Baby be mine is a great tune - with a nice twist or two at the end. Little fighter - although an annoyyingly cliché title, is a great tune for it's spirit and the talented guitarwork and musicianship pulls some emotion out of you - but only if you are very familiar with what the song is about (the sinking of the Greenpeace flagship Rainbow Warrior by the French Govornment to stop a planned Greenpeace protest of French Nuclear testing). Other titles like Radar Love and If my mind is evil (about Televangelism) are also very very good. It's a pity that the musician ship and creativity on the first two albums didn't carry over to Mane Attraction.
