David Coverdale and Co are back with a smoking hot new album and this is a nice follow up to the 2008 Good To Be Bad album. I have to say that I think Forevermore is a slightly better album and when they rock on this album the songs are really good and David Coverdale and Doug Aldrich has written a bunch of good old bluesy hardrock songs. David might not have the same power in his voice anymore, but man he still sounds a lot better than many other singers out there and the man don’t get any younger either.
There’s also a change in the line-up and the new members are Michael Devin on bass, Reh Beach on rhythm guitar and Brian Tichy on drums and it sounds like they have done a great job. Yes, the drum sound on the album is really good. Timothy Drury has laid down the keyboards as a special guest on the album. The album starts good with three typical Whitesnake rockers called Steal Your Heart Away, All Out Of Luck (this reminds very much of today’s Europe) and the first single Love Will Set You Free. Love Will Set You Free is one of the better tracks on the album and has great melodies and crunchy riffs. Easier Said Than Done is a lovely mid-tempo song with wonderful melodies and a strong chorus with classy harmonies.
I Need You (Shine A Light) is a riff strong rocker and the twin guitars sounds amazing and the chorus rocks good too. There are a couple of songs that takes down the grade and One Of Those Days is one of them and let Eagles do this kind of song and concentrate on doing bluesy rockers instead. Fare Thee Well and My Evil Way is another two songs that could have been left out on the album. All in all I think Forevermore is a good album and won’t disappoint Whitesnake fans and might even find some of the old fans back. The production is top-class and that’s thanks to the Los Bros Brutalos that has done a terrific job
