Great White has
experienced many ups and downs both on and off stage, and they have released
many albums that reflect that. So now they must be at a standstill if 'Rising'
is an indication of where they are at the moment...
Not up there with their best
moments, nor down in the bottom with their worst moments this one ends up
somewhere in the middle. 'Rising' is like we are used to from
blues lopsided hard rock with Jack Russell's unique voice, always easy to
recognize and to pick out in a crowd, and they deliver yet another album with
all the trademarks they have been nurturing and stayed true to throughout their
found their own little niche in hard rock a long time ago, and while this album
belongs among their more faceless and bleak ones it is still solid, and they are
still among the best hard rock bands out there. And 'Rising' will surely please
the shark fans out there as much as any of their previous ones...
