The Essential Series - 2017 Glam Metal (Volume 1) by Dtabachn
Commonly, public at large as well as critics and writers fail to identify the importance of Glam Metal as a crucial Metal sub-genre. In the sense that it was the driving force behind the fact that Metal was arguably the dominant genre in popular music around the mid to late 80's.

Whitesnake - 1979 Love Hunter
Given the battering Whitesnake have taken here as of late it's worth remembering what a fine band they once were, especially in their formative years in the late 70's.

Whitesnake - 1980 Ready An' Willing
'Ready And Willing' was the lit fuse that would spark Whitesnake's popularity into the rest of the 80's, though the sound here would disappear when Coverdale revamped the style to melodic hard rock in 1987.

Whitesnake - 1982 Saints And Sinners
With this album Coverdale sought to crack the American charts. Instead he would have to settle for a top ten placing in Britain, US success proving elusive.

Whitesnake - 1984 Slide It In
This album gave Whitesnake their big break in the U.S., and a successful tour helped elevate their stature to where their self-titled 1987 album made them megastars.

Whitesnake - 1987 1987
Despite four years in the making '1987' heralded a new direction for Coverdale, more melodic and AOR based, abandoning the bluesy tone of the 1978-84 era. It worked as '1987' sold more than ten million copies, and to this day remains one of the greatest hard rock albums of the late 80's.

Whitesnake - 1989 Slip Of The Tongue
A general consensus among many is that this album abandoned what Coverdale had started with Whitesnake in an attempt to cash in on the band's momentum. Gone is much of the bluesy element, replaced with a very slick production and songs that were meant to appeal to the masses.

Whitesnake - 2008 Good To Be Bad
Fans of the 'Slide It In' and '1987' albums will take to this in droves - I reckon. Doug Aldrich had a major hand in the making of this record, and was quoted as saying that 'GTTB' was supposed to encompass all eras of the band. An admirable quote it might be, but not an accurate one.

Whitesnake - 2011 Forevermore
This has been getting rave reviews all over the internet but I find it to be incredibly dull. I can't put it more plainly.

Whitesnake - 2011 Live At Donington 1990
As a time capsule this is probably of some interest to those who were present at the show. Maybe the DVD does this more justice, but as a live recording it's best avoided unless you are a fanatic of the band.

Whitesnake - 2013 Made In Japan
if any more proof is needed about how much of a money grab this is, another two CD live album is being released in June, 'Made in Britain/The World Record' all with the same songs as here. What can you say? Words fail me in this instance. This truly is the pits of the record industry.

Whitesnake - 2015 The Purple Album
Cover albums are always a poor idea and just because Coverdale was the original vocalist on these doesn't mean they should be desecrated like this.
