    Even studio technology can’t disguise the state of disrepair that DCs voice is in.
    It is so obvious, it jumps right into your face. In this collection of 15 (?) short samples David is not once able to lift a song to the point where you think: yeah! that’s the Coverdale we know and love – on the contrary: – in each sample you catch yourself thinking: What a crappy vocal is that?

    Well, if that’s what DCs voice sounds like on a polished studio recording, I don’t want to know what it is like 15 shows down the next tour.

    I ve not made up my mind yet.

    I m not a fan of Doug and pre-dominantly 87 sounding songs.

    I only listened vaguely but had the impression that it was another album that chews easily away, like the last.

    I must admit I played the last one quite often.
    Typical is then that I dont remember one song!!!!

    Must be me maybe.

    I seem to forget more things late.
    I d not like to be that arrogant to state that a good thing dont gets forgotten, but…..

    In that perspect, honest is honest, I remember some “things” from ROTD, so maybe that was a better album after all? : )

    You guys seem to forget a lot. I think the Track is quite catchy, as do most of my friends, I know the Europeans can be a bit tenacious and critical but you all pick things apart, which is not the way of Rock. You lisaten to it as a whole, and I can remember every song on Whats the name? LOL sorry, being a little bit like you all. Lighten up and shake that bug out of your a–. Rock On!

    I thought the last album was excellent. Maybe not epic like Coverdale/Page but it was worth the eight seventy five I paid for it. Like I said many months ago Dave needs to take Still of the Night off the setlist or his vocal chords will be completely TRASHED halfway through the next tour. As Clint Eastwood use to say many years ago Everyman has got to know his limitations. It is like Gillan trying to hit the high notes of yesteryear. It just aint in the cards angel.

    Just to a listen to the Replay of the show on Rockline. No call in’s taken, just a virtual nostalgic run through David’s career. Many songs from the 80’s and beyond were showcased. He gave great homage to his prior band mates and especially his appreciation to Deep Purple whom gave him the opportunity to front them even though he was never ever professionally heard of prior.

    Looking forward to the New Album and also the next installment of Rockline where hopefully, calls will be taken and I may speak to him once again.

    Sad to say but everything after the mid nineties by WS is recycled. I think DC has nothing left creative to give us old fans. The man went from DP, to Northwinds, to WS blues/soul to WS hair metal and to Page. What else can he do?

    Larry R. Toering says:

    @6 It is a well known fact that Gillan can still hit high notes, very high, the problem is that people, in this case yourself confuse that with holding(sustaining) those notes naturally without digital delay. He really did lose the whole ability you confuse, as far back as 1984. But it doesn’t mean he can’t still HIT them. In fact look at Steven Tyler, known for hitting THE highest notes in rock ever, WTF? it doesn’t matter to the Gillan school of fans because Tyler may have HIT those notes, but the problem is he could never hold them to save his life, so hiting them really should be irrelevant to us. What we really liked about Gillan’s high notes is that he HELD them like no other, and usually did so most naturually.

    I´ve been listening to new album a couple of days now (thanks to illegal downloading ), of course I´m gonig to buy the bugger on release !!! I must say…I love it, just as I loved GTTB ! I don´t get the complaints, it sounds nothing like the hair metal years….it´s nitty, gritty, down & dirty, bluesy, sexy and quite frankly….IT ROCKS !!! Remains to be seen if he can pull it off live though….I certainly hope so, guess I´ll see and hear for myself at this years Sweden Rock Festival…..the best hard rock & heavy metal festival in the world….!!!!!

    Maybe not very new but tasty IMHO.

    LIVE is indeed another chapter. : )

    Just took a listen to the whole album. Gotta say here, GREAT!!!!!! Covers all the holes the Nay Sayers have been bitching. Some nice change ups toward the Old meets the New. Bluesy, Ballsy, Mellow, Hard, Burlesque. Typical Coverdale style. It’s who he is, was and until dead, will be. Nothing to complain about here. I found that he has found his level of voice to be somewhere in the middle of low and high and on this record keeps it real. Goes where he can and finds a range that fits his need to stay in the present yet indulge back to his old Whitesnake roots. If one truly listens, and doesn’t commit to staying in the Classic era Box, they will have to come away pleased….
