Whitesnake – Good to be Bad

{mosimage}After 30 years on the road, Coverdale and his boys are back again with a new studio álbum to show that they still know how to rock.

If this album had been released a couple of years after Whitesnake, being such a high hit in 1987, probably we were talking a different story here. But unfortunately, for many people in rock scene Whitesnake and Coverdale are considered old dinosaurs, so it is difficult to break that barrier and have an objective approach to their new studio     album. 

A work that all in all shows as much balls and guts as their old good records. From the opening Best Years, that sounds like a powered version of Brian Adams ´Summer of 69, continuing with Can You hear the Wind Blow, the compulsory great ballad Summer Rain, the bluesy A fool in Love or the blowing Good to be Bad, the album is a great collection of lyrics, ripping guitar riffs and Coverdale´s vocal skills. This gentleman has the honor to be one of the best singers ever in the melodic rock history, and here, even aging 57, shows shy. 

Last time I saw Whitesnake was during their visit to Helsinki 3 years ago, being simultaneously the birthday of Coverdale, and nobody got disappointed with the show. He connected from the first instant with the public, received flowers and kisses from the female audience and showed once again that rock never dies. Surely you must not miss them in their incoming visit to Finland in June to Sauna Open Air in Tampere.

Rating 4/5.
