Great White: Elation
Great White - Elation Review

Great White: Elation

Melodic Hard Rock
4.0/5.0

Between all the hype and hair of the Eighties Sunset Strip glam rock, it's hard to remember that their were some bands that had an edge. Great White was one of the them, thanks to their ambitious integration of blues and boogie into their melodic hard rock. Sure, they didn't quite rise to the level of their peers, but they've stayed true to form.

Great White: do you see the shark sneaking up?

With little doubt you can hear this on their 12th album, Elation. You read that right; their 12th album, and first without Jack Russell on vocals. Terry Ilous from XYZ takes the microphone, and does a fine job.

You can dig that blues groove on most any song, but it sizzles on Love Train, Hard to Say Goodbye, the tasty Resolution, and slow burning Lowdown, a bonus track. Yet in the midst of this simmering pot of blues Great White still rocks. Dig it on (I've Got) Something For You or Just For Tonight. A good mix of both motifs comes on Complicated.

Those who know the rich history, and fundamental elements, of Great White's music will dig Elation. This is solid blues infected melodic hard rock. Easily recommended.
