David Coverdale, the voice and face of Whitesnake, admits that he was not going to release a new Whitesnake album in 2011. I’m sure fans will be glad he did.
FOREVERMORE is by far the best new rock album that I have heard this year. Everything is just right from music to vocals, production, everything. Lead off track, “Steal Your Heart Away” is like waking up to an earthquake. It is powerful and driving. The best part of this album is that it keeps up that pace. The first single, “Love Will Set You Free” is sure to catch your attention. Trust me, it won’t take long before you are singing along.
Ok, sure, there are still the old Whitesnake staples such as ballads and straight up blues-rock but the whole album still sounds so fresh. FOREVERMORE will have car windows rolled down and stereos cranked.
But wait! If you thought that was it then you’re in for a pleasant surprise. There is a deluxe package that has also been released. This copy of the CD comes with a DVD that features David and the rest of the band talking about the making of the album. Also included is the music video for “Love Will Set You Free”.
Whitesnake, FOREVERMORE, pick it up now.
