Just got done listening to this....I have mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, I like it. Good songs, great playing and strong vocals. Problem is, it doesn't sound like Great White. It sounds like Terry IIlous fronting a good blues based Rock band....If you take accept it for what it is, I think most will enjoy it, but don't go into it thinking that it's going to sound like classic Great White because it doesn't....Still, a worthy purchase and recommended.

From: Axe Slinger Date: May 12, 2012 at 15:40
Dude, Couldn't have said it better. It's good, not great. Doesn't sound like Great White or XYZ but sounds like Terry Ilous and a blues band. Very similar to Paul Shortino's blues disc. Just decent music. Nothing more, nothing less. 75/100

From: Mikey Date: July 1, 2012 at 9:44
I'm a huge fan of Terry Ilous and Great White, but he's not a good fit for this style of music. Songs on this cd are pretty damn boring, don't think i'm gonna spin it again anytime soon.

From: Mikey Date: July 1, 2012 at 9:47
btw, ENOUGH with these fucking digipak's already! Man i HATE these things, please stick with the standard jewel cases!!!!

From: Swedish Rocker Date: July 2, 2012 at 12:50
A positive surprise for me. Didn't expect anything really from it. Well, maybe I kinda expected another dull, boring album like Rising, dominated by soft songs. Sure, there are a few ballads, but overall it rocks more than perhaps any album since Psycho City. At least I think it's their best since then. I can agree that it most of the times it doesn't sound like Great White, but considering how they sounded on their most recent albums I think that's only a good thing. But perhaps it's also an album more for bluesy hard rock fans in general, than Great White fans in particular

Terry's a fine singer -- and I love Great White -- but this does not work AT ALL. Maybe it'd be "better" if they released it under another band name... but, right now, I can't recommend even listening to this, let alone buying it. Nothing sounds "Great White" enough to me... sounds way to "Mr. Big" (as Terry reminds me of Eric.)

I remember way back in late 80's paying more than 30 british pounds for a ticket(it really cost 12 pounds but there were no more tickets available so i had to buy it from a reseller ) at the great Hammersmith Theater to see David Lee Roth live during his "Skyscraper" Tour...but mainly i did that because apart from seeing live the wonderful Diamond Dave,the support act was none other than Great White!!!...a band that i have always admired ever since came out in the business...Jack Russell was part of that admiration,a great vocalist,one of those that as my concern goes is kinda of irreplaceable...never thought he was never gonna be part of the Whites and well,health issues plus tryin' 2 have some kind of a parallel GW act that is not possible as the GW members are suing him for that(or so)...anyway the integration of the former XYZ frontman to the band(Terry Ilous)has brought "freshness" and has to be respected...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 5, 2012 at 20:37
...for me this album rocks in its particular way...for die hard fans of the band it could be digested very fine IMO...tracks 1,3,4 & 6 are songs that are gonna put some smile in your face for sure...some Black Crowes sound here and there...talking about me faves i'd go for these cuts "Shotgun Williie's","Just For Tonight","Love Is Enough"(first GW song with a melodic rock/AOR feel that i heard,Terry's fault???)& "Complicated"...in general lines probably it will take some kind of time to dig Terry's voice here(especially when singing the classics)but i think he will manage to satisfy the fans(old and new ones)...90/100

From: Rob Rocker Date: July 17, 2012 at 12:54
I'm not a "die hard" GW fan, but I own most of their CD's and IMO Elation is a really solid album. In a perfect world I would prefer a healthy Jack Russell fronting the band, but Terry Illous has a similar style (maybe a little grittier/darker) than Russell, and also brings his own personality to the band, to me Elation still sounds like "Great White". There are a couple songs that I would consider filler, but the majority of the material is really well crafted. The comments portraying Elation as a generic, forgettable bluesy bar band album is very off base, if anything the song writing seems to have expanded to add a little more diversity than the average GW album. I agree with Swedish Rocker in that this is probably their best album since Psycho City. Standout songs for me, "Feeling So Much Better", "Love Train", "Hard To Say Goodbye", "Promise Land" and "Complicated".

return not terrific a disapointment for me even if the new excellent singer from xyz is french from caluire a town next to my town.this cd for me is average not enough hard with several fillers.

From: Metal T Date: August 28, 2012 at 21:50
Decent record for what it is and Terry's vox are excellent here but Terry is wasting his talents in this band.Ill take XYZ over Great White anyday of the week.Id put those first 2 XYZ records up against anything Great White has ever done or ever will do.Oh man id love to see Terry bolt and finally hook up with Marc Diglio again and do a proper XYZ album...id wash my hands of this mess if i were him but will always support the dude he's a helluva singer.

From: CC Date: February 25, 2013 at 11:57
I like Great White and I like Terry (and of course XYZ) but to me Great White without Jack is not Great White. Sorry guys, but this is not a Great White album no matter how you try to spin it. After 30 years you dont kick your singer out and try to continue under the same name.

From: Doug Date: October 8, 2013 at 12:13
This is a good listen, but I tend to agree with "CC" - it lacks that Great White “swagger.” Good, not great.

From: hair metal again Date: February 3, 2014 at 1:46
very good release by GREAT WHITE as always!these guys dont have an average moment and they re always delivering good hard rock music!of course Terry steals the show with his magic voice ,but the strong point is the nice hard rockin vibe all over!all the songs are worth listening and i d say that it s much of a grower!GREAT WHITE did it again

From: gooup Date: September 23, 2020 at 17:56
Just overwhelmingly and abysmally BORING and devoid of the passion and energy that was the sum of the parts that melded to create Great White. Damn shame my favorite band is essentially dead.
