With Whitesnake's new album Good to be Bad set for release later this month, I thought it high time we revisit some of the band's classic material.
I think Whitesnake's best song will always be "Still of the Night." The driving guitars and David Coverdale's epic wails make this one of the best rock songs ever recorded. Yes,"Still of the Night" is on the immensely popular self-titled Whitesnake album that also features the MTV hits "Is This Love" and "Here I Go Again." While I agree those two songs are pretty great, I don't think they are nearly as good as some of the band's older work.
I've already heard a few tracks from Good to be Bad and I think the new stuff actually sounds like late 70s Whitesnake - and that's a good thing!
For this installment of Whitesnake Wednesday - let's compare two tracks. The first is "Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City" from the album Snakebite.
Now here's "Slow An' Easy" from the album Slide it In.
Now here's the hard part: which song (and clip) is better? Extra credit: does either track trump "Still of the Night?" I think not. I mean, you can't argue with perfection. Thoughts?
