Whitesnake were lumped into the "hair metal" explosion of the 1980s, but they were a classier, more classic rock band than most of their peers. So the songs that populate this hits collection hold up better than the work of many of that era's MTV-boosted groups. Vocalist David Coverdale took flack for sounding like Robert Plant, but his booming, confident voice is more temperate than the Zep frontman's caterwaul. From roaring epics such as "Still of the Night" and "Here I Go Again" to the blatant, sexy "Slide It In" to the memorable power ballad "Love Ain't No Stranger," the expected hits from the band's commercial heyday are included in this comprehensive CD, which skips over Whitesnake's several hitless discs of the '70s. Three decent unreleased songs fill out this 14-cut collection, which, much like the band itself, is solid and timeless. --Katherine Turman

This disc kicks off with Still of the Night - a towering masterpiece that every hard rock fan should be familiar with. Some gruops never have a song anywhere near this good in careers as equally long as Whitesnake. The real issues with this release start once this opening statement of intent fades away.

The issue with this album is the gutlessness of it all. From the insipid pandering liner notes waffling on about 'hard rock romantics' to the cover again featuring a familiar motif in it's design this whole album is a wimpout.

Take for example Here I Go Again, a wonderful tune, but hter they've put on some soft radio edit version. This is a travesty, was the record company afraid that all of Coverdales fans were now too old to handle the proper version?

And so the album continues with ballad after ballad - Is This Love, Now Your Gone and The Deeper the Love - only the first named being worthy of being on a 'Greatest Hits' album to start with. Love Aint No Stranger is a welcome addition however and is at least a cursory nod to pre '1987' material. Elsewhere we're treated - if the word can be used - to Judgement Day and a raft of 'previously unavailable on LP' ballad style songs.

Of course any time a band puts out a best of fans will queue up to moan about which was and wasn't included. But seriously the track listing here is so much a product of a jaded, cynical marketing exercise that it's not really a good representation of the band that produced a raft of good albums over the years. Seriously, no Slip of the Tongue, no Bad Boys or even a Children of the Night for a bit of a rockier and less predictable choice. Or what about Kittens Got Claws for some tongue in cheek Vai era fun. Or Ready & Willing form an earlier incarnation of the white megabeast?

After the dust settled from the fallout of hairbands and hard rockers in the early 90's, many of them punched out greatest hits discs in hopes to snag a few more dollars from a sagging genre. Whitesnake wasn't one of those bands. When Whitesnake released "Greatest Hits" in '94, it was a legitimate catalogue of good songs, unlike other bands who cranked out one or two Top 40 songs and slid in some unreleased versions of other songs they had recorded and called it a greatest hits album.
Whitesnake was David Coverdale and whoever he handpicked to be on each album. That's one of the things that make this band unique. Just listening to the selections on this album, you can hear the different stylings that John Sykes, Mel Galley, Steve Vai, Cozy Powell, Tom Aldridge and others brought to each song. Though Whitesnake had one constant, Coverdale, the rest of the band brought it's own influences and melded together to make some of the best rock songs and ballads of the 80's and early 90's.
Start your listening with "Still of the Night," "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love." From there, the songs remain solid. "Fool For Your Loving" is a blues rocker that really stands out. Another good song is "Now You're Gone." The heaviest song on this album is "Judgement Day," which will leave you weak in the knees. Although "Is This Love" is probably the biggest commercial ballad for Whitesnake, "The Deeper the Love" stands on its own as a solid love song that fits well on this album.
Many folks blow off bands like Poison, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard as glitzy hairbands, but it's bands like Whitesnake that give this genre some weight. How many other bands can you name that had as much success as Whitesnake using the "new members on every album concept?" I think you'll find that number quite small.

I must admit, when these guys were hot, I was listening to other things, but I'm glad I eventually checked them out. This is a good collection for the casual fan. It's actually missing alot, but it does include the big hits from the "Whitesnake" album, plus a number of others. What's here is "Still Of The Night", "Slide It In", "Here I Go Again", and the hit ballad "Is This Love". It also includes a few choice album cuts like "Crying In The Rain" and "Looking For Love". Overall it's a great disc, and will go well with "White Lion" and "Great White", (to complete your "White" metal trilogy of course).

I've loved Whitesnake for ages! This is a good greatest hits of their old 80s/90s stuff. Got it at a great price today too! Different than the Greatest Hits I already had. Good CD packed with rockable tunes!

I personally have never heard of anybody who loves the "Hard Rock/Heavy Metal" genre that does not like Whitesnake. This album showcases all of the best of Whitesnake plus a few new killer tunes. We also get treated to the radio mix of "Here I Go Again". If you love Whitesnake or "Metal" in general you will not be disappointed by this album. "Still Of The Night" and "Here I Go Again" will always be two songs by which all other songs will be judged in my opinion. This album is truly Whitesnake at their best! As for other albums you may like if you like this band, well, starting in 1998 and moving forward into early this year there has been a phenomenal amount of activity within bands of this genre. Being incredibly curious I started cross referencing and came up with some great news! A lot of bands bailed out because of all the "grunge" (obviously that isn't the great news). Three that came up frequently in cross referencing that are out of commission are Skid Row, White Lion and Winger. White Lion's last release was 1992. Winger gave up and Kip Winger has released a new album but it sort of has a Bruce Springsteen flavor to it. Skid Row booted their vocalist Sebastian Bach and that was the end of that. I am happy to report that Sebastian Bach has released his first solo album, and to date it is one I personally would rate as a five star album. Sleeze Beez (sort of a Skid Row meets Warrant sound) has re-released a killer album. Unfortunately, for those of us who love this genre, they have split into two bands, neither of which would fall into this category.Read more ›
