Every decade has its fads, but only one that really defines that decade. For the 1980s, it's hair metal. Of course, this is a derogatory term for any rock band that grew their hair long and played loud, aggressive, often sexist music. Only a few have stood the test of time, let alone continue their careers long after the craze comes to an end. One of these bands is Great White. In some ways, they fit the stereotype of an '80s hair metal band, but it's in what they don't that has caused them to soldier on today. Albums like 1987's ONCE BITTEN... and its sequel 1989's ...TWICE SHY are ones that don't get their due as the best of the era. Great White really could play and write music, contrary to the popular legend, and aside from Aerosmith, were the best at imitating Led Zeppelin. They even devoted an entire live album to it. In the footsteps of Zeppelin, Great White doesn't dress up their sound too much, creating a rough blend of blues and rock that doesn't contain any of the instruments to date it. While the entire album is a gem, the biggest highlights are, oddly enough, ballads like "The Angel Song" (lead singer Jack Russell actually does sound like Robert Plant), "She Only", and "House Of Broken Love". When a hair metal band did a love ballad, it often came off as sappy and mawkish. But Great White manages to sound sincere without being emasculated. But the one song that has come to define the band for all time is their cover of Ian Hunter's "Once Bitten Twice Shy". Because this song was a hit, and not an original Great White song, that is probably why the band has been dismissed as just another band of its era. However, it's amazing that a band can easily make a song they didn't write sound like their own, and that's not an easy thing to do. ...Read more ›

Forget the huge and long hairs, the leather and make-up, the ridiculous look most heavy metal/hard rock bands strangely insist on having, Great White is one of the best rock bands to come in years.
Though they have been unfairly compared to Poison and Dokken, their sound, and although falling very much in the hard rock category, is quite original:
They are more accessible than Iron Maiden, more consistent than Molly Hatchet, more melodic than Counting Crows and certainly less commercial than Dokken and Poison. Their music has an edge, and is very powerful, very bluesy with extended guitar solos, and piano to enhance the melody and soften the harder edges, and yes the lead vocals is one of the best in the business.
Twice Shy was the first CD I bought of the band (on an intuition, and because I liked the cover!), and I was not disappointed at all. It is a good start to the band as it has a combination of good clean rock songs, bluesy songs and the standard must have ballad, though it is very well written( about Hollywood's fake promises) and not similar to the ballads of dozens rock group which are included for the sake of having a 'ballad'.
Not since the creative age of rock in 70s with bands like Black Sabbath, Rainbow, Led Zeppelin did a band give me so much listening satisfaction as Great White did..give it a go, listen to that power and excellent musicianship and you too will not be disappointed.

“Twice Shy” was the album that broke the dam wide open for Great White. Their cover of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten Twice Shy” was a huge hit propelling them to the top of the charts and arena headliner status. Their stay at the top would be brief, but for about a year or so they were one of the top “hair metal” acts of the day. Of course Great White were always a notch above the average “hair” outfit especially when they let their blues roots show through on some of their better albums. For some Great White fans, “Twice Shy” is their favorite release, but for me I think it is just an average album from the band. The hit single is neither an improvement nor detraction from the original. It is pretty much just a straight forward reading of what was already a great song. In fact the album contains 3 covers which seems a bit desperate to me as if they did not have enough original stuff to fill an album. As always the band are at their strongest when they do blusier material such as “House Of Broken Love” which is one of the better songs they ever wrote. “Angel Song” is another good one in a more ballad-ish mode. The rest of the tracks are pretty much your typical rockers about sex or being on the road. Not terrible, but nothing spectacular either. “Mista Bone” remains in the band’s live show to this day and is one of the better ones in a clichéd kind of way. There is some nice instrumental work on the album, as these guys always had chops. Even though this may be the band’s biggest selling album (that is just a guess), they have done much better. Still, it is worth owning if you are a fan of the band.

1989 was a year of glam and all things that stand out. The only thing that stands out here is how good the songs are and the overall sound. There's blues, hard rockers and even a few songs that you'd find your parents listening to. I always felt that this band was worlds better than thier contemperies. Hiway Nights, Mista Bone and (seems classic to me) House of Broken Love are the best songs on the record, but there is not a bad track on this 9 track set. There is very few bands that had their hayday in the 80's that I find pulling out of my CD collection on a regular basis as much as Great White and this just might be their best
