White Lion - Anthology 83-'89 - 2006 - Deadline
As I listen to this, I am reminded, as was the intetion, that this was probably one of the more serious bands in the 80's, not as hard rocking as some of the bands of the era-- but they didn't need to be, the were more focued on the quality of the music. Scorching guitar solo's take precedence over the drums and bass--in fact, it's easy to tune out everything but that.
Mike Tramp has a beautiful voice, wrought with emotion in "When the Children Cry", "Cherokee", and "It's Over"; raspy and unusual...As much as I love this album and the songs on it, I probably would have respected it more had it been two albums of originals.
Not to take the luster off my review, the album is 10 star album, but I crave something new from my fave old bands as I'm sure most fans do.
