I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

The album cover looks like it was a promotion for the new Sharknado movie. Very good, but that's where the pointy end of the stick finishes up. Year by year, I find the output from Los Angeles band Great White becoming less interesting. The band spend all their time in classic rock territory these days. Yes, it's great the renowned German producer/engineer Michael Wagener returns to produce this album, but the band and their brand aren't helped by former singer Jack Russell out there doing his own thing under an alternate Great White banner. I hate it when ego's get in the way. Back to the music, I have to say 'Full Circle' doesn't really float my boat, though to be fair, the band are good at what they do.

If you go back and listen to their past couple of albums, most likely your find the output being very similar which suggests to me that the band are quite comfortable where they are, without the need to move on and update their sound. There's nine tracks here, the guitar tone is raw throughout. Only a handful of songs really do it for me. There's a ballad ('Let Me In'), there's a real bluesy tune ('Never Let You Down') plus an anthem for the people ('Cry Of A Nation'). 'Give It Up' is a good pumping affair, while 'Big Time', which is the album's first single has some upside too. The intro sounded like The Godz's 'Cross Country'. Other than that, take your pick. It's a decent enough set from the Sharkies, but I don't think it will take too long to move on from this.
