Slide It In

Whitesnake - Slide It In 1984 Geffen Records - Reviewed by Nailer
I think you can pretty much group each song into three sets:
Top-shelf classic rock:
--Slow An' Easy, Love Ain't Know Stranger
Solid Hook-leaden rockers:
--Slide it In, All or Nothing, Gambler, Guilty of Love, Give Me More Time, Standing In The Shadows
--Hungry for Love, Spit it Out
The title track opens it up, setting the tone for most of the entire album lyrically and musically. Straight-forward rock riffs dominate of all the guitar work offering little innovation, but then again this has got to be the only album I know where EVERY song is about love or is filled with sexual innuendo. Hell, look at the titles: Slide it In, Slow An' Easy, Spit it Out. Of course you have to remember, that this was in the era just before the hormone-fueled hair metal period and those bands were only expanding on what had just came before.
You gotta have some guilty pleasures in your music collection--a CD or two that makes people and even yourself wonder what it is that you see in it. "Slide It In" is lyrically set in Junior High, but nontheless great, British, chick-fueled rock and roll.
