While I enjoyed the first 4 immensely and parts of Twice Shy. I have to admit that this one gets more play from me. Not sure why. Have to say that it is a shame that they are leaving or at least Jack is going solo by the sounds of it. Saw them on stage and they were very good.

From: jason Date: May 14, 2002 at 17:47
This is their best album. Not only are the songs really good, but it helps that the production is outstanding!

From: timstar Date: June 22, 2002 at 10:30
One of the best blues/rock albums ever, in my top 10 of all time. A must buy!!!!

From: josh Date: August 12, 2002 at 9:21
Yeah this is a very good blues rock album, really like the ballads on this one

From: Baris Date: September 11, 2002 at 3:21
One of their best albums.

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: January 25, 2003 at 15:50
The secret to Great White's success: It's in the groove!!! Great White sticks to the basics: soulful, blues-based rock n' roll!!! And it works big-time!!! This album is yet another timeless collection of rock that rolls!!! Jack Russell possesses one of the cleanest, finest pitches in rock today!!! His flawless vocals being one of Great Whites stronger points!!! Not to mention Mark Kendell, the soft spoken guitarist who on this album gave one of the top recording performences of his life----

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: January 25, 2003 at 16:13
Emerging a bona-fide guitar hero!!! Guitars rip on songs like "Original Queen Of Sheba", "Heartbreaker", "Can'tShack It","Dessert Moon", and "Cold Hearted Lovin'", while showing a suave skillfull touch on softer songs like "Afterglow", "Congo Square", and the bodacious ballad "Lovin' Kind"!!! So I sit back throw my hands behind my head look up at the sky and think "The SHARKS have HOOKED another consistent album here!!!" My hats off to you boys!!!

From: me Date: January 29, 2003 at 0:43
Mark Kendall, one of rocks most underrated guitarists. I really enjoyed this album..not their best, I give that to "shot in the Dark" but strong song writing and cool arrangements. Technically they were very sound...8.5/10

From: Big Papa K Date: September 14, 2004 at 2:50
In my opinion this is the weakest point of a catalog that is not too strong to begine with. Once again (as always) the best songs are the covers with "Afterglow" and "Can't Shake It". Opener "Call It Rock N' Roll" has some life to it, but the rest puts me to sleep. 3/10

From: Geoff Date: September 18, 2004 at 23:38
This is the one where they really took the blues angle full on. It's a good bluesy album, but definately not a fave of mine. 'Lovin' kind' is a superb ballad and there are a few cool rockers like 'Can't shake it', but if there was a name other than Great White up the top I doubt I'd give it much of my time. Good album for what it is...

From: Joan Date: March 8, 2005 at 10:19
Una de mis portadas favoritas y otro discazo de Great White... hard y blues, con un Mark Kendall sensacional. Todas son buenas pero me quedo con la última, Afterglow.

From: Adam Blackheart Date: June 28, 2005 at 12:36
When blues meets rock and roll, hard rock and hair metal... Some say that Great White is polished Lynyrd Skynyrd, other say, that they're natural successors of Led Zeppelin... Well, nevermind. "Hooked" is his highlight. Brilliant CD from brilliant band. 10/10

From: poproxx2007 Date: February 13, 2006 at 15:11
Now this is an excellent cd!! Not as bombastic as they're earlier sound and not as commercial as the previous two cd's-this is a great blues and boogie disc that is absolutly flawless from beginning to end. "Call It ROck N Roll" was a great lead off single and an excellent follow up to "Once Bitten, Twice Shy".."Loving Kind" is a great ballad and a great video. "Desert Moon", "Cold Hearted Lovin" and "original queen of sheba" are amazing! 10/10

From: hair metal again Date: August 21, 2010 at 4:45
excellent US commercial hard rock by the mighty GREAT WHITE.this is no blues rock guys,this is pure hard rock music!"call it rock n roll","cant shake it"."desert moon" are the rockers and "lovin kind " is the ballad.they are an amazing band and they cant make even one bad song in their whole career.so much groove...its fantastic

From: rockhardrock Date: January 22, 2011 at 17:56
very similar to their commercially most sucesfull record-twice shy. my faves: desert moon, call it rock n roll, afterglow and can't shake it.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 10, 2011 at 21:35
Pretty album the Sharks!!!...it contains some hits of the band such as "Call It Rock And Roll" & "Shake It" plus some other goodies like "Heartbreaker","Cong Square","Desert Moon"(brilliant!) & "Afterglow"(nice)...recommended album...btw what a great album cover!!!!...85/100

From: 123charpenay Date: August 3, 2012 at 17:23
a classic.a super record not my great white s fave.some fillers (the ballads).nevertheless this record will stay in my collection no problem.

From: Buitre Date: August 16, 2013 at 7:11
Without any doubt their best work so far. 85/100

From: CC Date: June 12, 2018 at 15:38
This for me is easily their best album. Every single song on here is fantastic, without a single filler tune. As per the standard for GW, they had a cover song, and for my money it is easily the best cover of Afterglow I have ever heard. The other ballad on this is one of their own, Loving kind, which is great as well. While yes it has a blues bent on this album, it does rock out at times and actually has more of a groove to it than straight up blues. A song like Congo Square certainly has its roots in the blues, but it has a great groove to it that stops it from being a plodding snorefest like so many blues bands churn out. For me, this was the last truly great album as the follow ups to this just did not do it for me.
