White Lion was one of the first bands that I really got into.This album was a huge inspiration for me on my guitar playing, wanting to learn all songs on this record at that time.The guitar style of Vito Bratta is a lot similar to Eddie Van Halen, tapping very frequently, and is even on par with Eddie most of the time when it comes to skill.The drums pound loud on this record, all because of the great drummer Greg D'Angelo.Bass player James Lomenzo keeps a great steady rhythm, as all glam metal bass players do.Of course Mike Tramp's incredible vocals are always great to listen to. He sometimes sounds like he's off-key but he makes sound great.Highlights include mega-hit "Wait", highly underrated "All You Need Is Rock N' Roll", and my favorite, the "troubled child" song "Lonely Nights".This albums is a 80's glam masterpiece, and everyone should check it out.
