From: Chris C. Date: January 29, 2001 at 15:47
This is THE definitive White Lion CD. Everything on the album is A+++!!!! Everything from start to finish on this Cd is great!!!!

From: Charles Date: July 9, 2001 at 5:30
The best Cd of the 90's

From: TRM Date: July 12, 2001 at 11:50
Mane Attraction was undoubtedly their most mature effort (although I am still a bit partial to Big Game) and their least successful. Go figure. Grunge worked in mysterious ways (note the year, 1991).

From: Pedro Date: July 13, 2001 at 7:27
The best White Lion album. A classic. Everything in yhis album is great, but we could say that the Vito Bratta work in this album is a 10 over 10.

From: COOL Date: July 21, 2001 at 20:31
THIS ALBUM SUCKED MAN, IT WAS SO SLOW AND BORING, MAN THIS SUX!

From: Poser Spirit Date: July 28, 2001 at 22:53
Every comment here is wrong! We know White Lion was one of the greatest hard rock bands, but of course it's not one of the best 90's records and it's not even the best White Lion album (the best is whit no doubt 'Pride'). This album is not an A+ from start to finish; it has wonderful songs like Broken Heart, Love Don't Come Easy, You're All I Need, Till Death Do Us Part... but it has bad songs like Leave Me Alone, Warsong and She's Got Everything.

From: Poser Spirit Date: July 28, 2001 at 22:56
The first prize goes to the TRM's comment! this guy talked about Grunge! Fuck!!! 1991 should never been remembered as a grunge year... it's a Sleaze Glam year!

From: Poser Spirit Date: July 28, 2001 at 22:58
What a piece of shit like 'COOL' is doing in this site if it doesn't like White Lion?????

From: TRM Date: August 22, 2001 at 6:36
Poser Spirit, I don't if your 'first prize' comment is meant to be insulting or not, but the fact is Nirvana's Nevermind came out in 1991. I wish it were a Sleaze Glam year, but it wasn't. 1991 was the beginning of the end for a lot of our favorite bands. Like it or not, it's true.

From: Poser Spirit Date: September 5, 2001 at 22:35
1991 was a year of Guns n' Roses, Skid Row and Extreme (and soon was coming Hardline); I see that like a sleaze glam year (only sleaze glam bands). Nirvana and grunge were more popular than hard rock a little bit after that... TRM, what did you want to say when you said: 'Grunge worked in mysterious ways'?

From: TRM Date: September 14, 2001 at 6:24
Poser Spirit, the implication is that grunge fucked up the hard rock market, and it was difficult to understand how and why. 1991 was a year of distressing transition, and Mane Attraction was affected by it. The album should have been more soccessful. That's all. One other fact I think you might find interesting: I went to see Extreme in the Fall of 1990 on their Pornograffitti Tour. Guess who opened? ......Alice In Chains. Mind boggling, isn't it?

From: Poser Spirit Date: September 15, 2001 at 14:41
It' ok if you say the album should have been more successful... but the grunge worked only in the people minds, not in the album!

From: Rycheage Date: September 16, 2001 at 11:37
Excellent disc. From songs like 'Lights & Thunder', 'Leave Me Alone', Farewell To You' to the ballads like 'Till Death Do Us Part', and 'You're All I Need' I really think this is the best White Lion CD. Can be gotten cheap on eBay and is worth every penny!! Get it!!

From: Lionzuxo Date: September 20, 2001 at 21:10
Rycheage, Farewell To You is also a ballad. And Leave Me Alone is horrible!

From: TRM Date: September 25, 2001 at 10:33
I'll give you that!

From: Lionzuxo Date: September 27, 2001 at 20:24
What, mr. TPM?

From: Vito Bratta Date: October 15, 2001 at 22:08
Hi everyone,how are u? i think this is my last great performance in White Lion,so thanx for the bad comment and the great comment...see u

From: Rycheage Date: November 11, 2001 at 17:30
'Leave Me Alone' is a great track. It is not their best. 'Lights and Thunder' is that. But it is NOT horrible. I suggest you listen again with the volume up not at 0.

From: Tony Date: April 16, 2002 at 7:30
Best White Lion cd by far. At the time this came out though it didn't stand a chance. The grumblings were beginning for hair-metal and these guys were bound to be one of the firast victims of that. That's too bad because this album is solid beginning to end.

From: Desslar Date: April 17, 2002 at 1:34
Some of their best ballads are here, but it's missing the fun party songs and power metal tunes they used to do. The heavy songs try too hard to sound trendy, and tunes like 'Leave Me Alone' just don't have that White Lion sense of melody to them. 'Love Don't Come Easy' is great.

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 2:23
Love Don't Come Easy is indeed great. I think I favor pride a little bit over this one, but I still like it. As far as the grunge thing, it didn't really take off until mid to late '92. When Nirvana first started, I remember people talking about how weird Smells Like Teen Spirit was when it came out. It took a little bit for people to go nuts over it. What killed the '80s were the big bands breaking up, key members leaving, too many drugs, jealousy, griping about other bands,

From: TIM (CONT'D.) Date: May 15, 2002 at 2:33
members fighting over who they thought made the band a success, partying too much then throwing an album together at the last minute, firing the people that made them, not showing up to concerts or not being able to play once they got there, stupid DJ's acting like all the big bands had only 3 songs for people to listen to, lack of consistant new bands, etc.. When Nirvana finally got hot, STP and Pearl Jam joined in to take over the airwaves. Then Collective Soul, Bush, and Live jumped aboard.

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 2:41
Sorry for the lecture folks, but I remember being really pissed at a lot of my favorite bands at the time for laying down and letting grunge take over because they were letting such petty things bring down the music. They fought their own friends and fans, not their real enemy-grunge. Even though G'N'R' and Quiet Riot are among my fav's- their inability to keep their egos and mouths in check helped contribute to the illness in my opinion.

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 2:56
One last thing. I honestly don't think the makeup and clothes had anything to do with the sickness. It's normal for the crowd to make fun of the previous fad. I was making fun of how the grunge groups looked when they were at their peak- disheveled hair, unshaven, flannel, etc.. Gee, looking like a hobo is so cool. The glam bands were tame compared to Manson anyways. Guess what, people will be making fun of him later along with Godsmack, Wimp Bizkit, Kid Rock, ad nauseum.

From: The Prophet Date: May 15, 2002 at 10:20
In my opinion White Lion have made only one master piece(Pride). Mane Attraction has about five or six good songs( Warsong,Out with the boys and Broken heart are my favs). The others are boring or fillers. Why did grunge take over hard rock? Mtv and the Majors of the record industry decided that It was time for a new trend. Great Dickheads. This fact still makes me angry like a wolf.

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 11:12
Good points Prophet, MTV and the Majors did have a lot to do with it as well. There are probably numerous reasons all of us could name, but we all know the '8os musicians were way better skillwise. People just follow the crowd and never stop to question why. I also agree with your comments about Pride, I like Mane Attraction but not as well.

From: jason Date: May 15, 2002 at 17:03
Oh Man, You got me started now! You guys hit on some good points about the grunge take over. It's hard to believe that from about '92 'til 1999 there wasn't a song on the radio with a guitar solo in it! Another reason grunge took over is the hair band stile that you like got over saturated. We started off good with G'n'R, Tesla & Cinderella, But then we ended up with shit like Sweet F.A. I mean,.... COME ON!....That reminds me. I need to go to the Sweet F.A. page and vent!

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 18:33
Hardline, XYZ, Firehouse, and Slaughter put up a good fight that kept the '80s alive as long as it did. But. like jason said there was such an influx of garbage flooding the market. People got sick of the trash and took it out on the few good bands still going. If the record companies has used more scrutiny, things might have been different.

From: jason Date: May 15, 2002 at 20:26
Tim, you mentioned a few bands that trekked on through the 90's. If you ask me, I think the only band that made any headway at all in the 90's was Jackyl. Others tried, but nun could maintain their popularity like Jackyl did.

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 20:47
Jackyl did make headway as much as the others I mentioned. I don't think they continued in popularity throughout the entire decade. Their cd's were in pawn shops everywhere. I'm not saying you're wrong, but I remember them burning out pretty fast. I'm glad you like them, but I sure didn't notice anyone holding up the Jackyl banners during the grunge era. All I noticed were all the traitors claiming they never liked the '80s in the first place.

From: jason Date: May 15, 2002 at 21:19
There is a couple of reasons why I give so much credit to Jackyl. Their fist album came out in 1992 and they went on to make about 4 or 5 albums total. The last one I have came out in 1998 called 'Stayin' Alive'. Also they were at Woodstock '94 and alot of reports say that Jackyl stole the show. In 1994, what other hair bands could have stole the show?

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 22:41
Personally, I think any of the bands I mentioned could have. I really only liked about 2 or 3 songs by Jackyl. I've never seen Jackyl live, so I really don't know.

From: jason Date: May 16, 2002 at 16:38
Tim, I have seen Jackyl live three times. I've even been thrown on stage with them (that was cool!). They are one of the top four live acts I have seen. Jackyl was the biggest hit out of hair bands in the mid 90's because they got a late start and people weren't sick of them yet. Geffen's last hoo-raw.

From: The Prophet Date: May 21, 2002 at 8:25
Again, about the grunge take over hard rock. And about MTV betray us all, check out this site www.rockglry.com and join the rock revolution. I grant you all, It' s a very funny site.

From: Kim Date: June 1, 2002 at 11:40
White Lion is one of the few bands I know that never really made a bad album. Bratta is KING and Tramp has a unique voice.

From: JoseM(Spain)Sev Date: July 28, 2002 at 20:20
I have this one,and I think is one of the best of '90s, My favorite song is 'Warsong', this song has power and melody at the same time. 'You're all that I need' and 'Till death do us part' both are very good ballads. ( Sorry if my English isn't good enough KIM )

From: Baris Date: September 8, 2002 at 10:19
This album has good music such as 'Broken Heart', 'Love Don't Come Easy' and 'You're All I Need'. OK, this is the best Whit Lion album. But I don't want to exeggrate more. I agree that White Lion never became a 'WOWW! WHAT A SUPER HIT' band. They were more BALANCED. Of course they were super than Pearl Jam. (Sorry, even to compare with that SHIT Jam, is an insult to them, I know!). Whatsoever, take this record to return to melodic days and sigh 'ahh those days!..'.

From: Altay Date: December 23, 2002 at 19:37
i think 'white lion' was one of the most respectable bands in their genre.they have their own style and sound.besides i disagree with baris,white lion was a 'wow,what a superhit band'.not my favourite lion song but 'when the children cry' made a huge worldwide success,i can't imagine how many people say that sentence when they listened to it.this cd is their best.my fave is -it's over.

From: Airik Date: August 7, 2003 at 3:49
This cd was a lil weaker that the 1st 3 .. i still liked it but maybe this was the reason for there demise .. warsong was a cool song as well as Light n Thunder .. but i really love the SRV tribute Blue Monday ... it dont get much better than that .. till death do us part was a bit sappy for my taste , but it would make a great wedding song .. and you think they knew this album was gonna flop and they were gonan break up when they wrote Farewell To You??? who knows .. but still like this band al

From: Jade Date: November 2, 2003 at 23:49
those morons above were arguing about stupid shit when yeah this album isnt that great though you cant beat their first despite their platinum success, bands like this were a dime a dozen as most of you remember or should know around 90-92 and as a result of that grunge came in and you know the rest

From: luislpaez Date: January 4, 2004 at 22:36
Their best!!!

From: Metal Pete Date: February 5, 2004 at 20:58
Well...it has more good songs than Big Game. They put a lot into this record. Pride still stands out as their best, IMO. I would have liked to have seen them make at least one more all-killer no-filler record. When they were on, they flat-out rocked.

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 12:55
Some good stuff here but also some not so good. Worth having but not a classic.

From: Boxnack Date: March 15, 2004 at 1:16
I can't believe that nobody mentions 'It's Over'. One hell of a song. Bluesy yet melodic...my personal fave.

From: razor2467 Date: May 7, 2004 at 11:09
I liked Pride better for that great live feel, but this cd is still pretty good, WAY better than Big Game!!! 'Its Over', & 'Broken Heart are pretty good. Still this was the beginning of the end for this era, as 'Grunge' was on the horizon. Referring to the comments posted previously, I seem to remember a period around this time when both this type of music and 'Grunge' were both doing well. Both Nirvana & GNR well selling albums. I thought at the time that bands like Soundgarden and Pearl Jam we

From: jack Date: May 25, 2004 at 6:44
White lion,just like cinderella and winger are typical classic rock band,with classic guitar riff and classic vocals.Their music is quite similar to malay rockwhich is what malay people listen to(i know cause i know a lot of them). Ithink because their music is too classic,they fall victim to the grunge invasion! Anyway,sadly for the hard rock/metal fans,this album is the last of white lion's.i will never forget what white lion have done for the hard rock/metal music.

From: TIM (2) Date: May 26, 2004 at 14:51
I love this, classic stuff. Great variety of tracks and for me a better and more consistent album than any of their others. Didn't really like 'Pride' much to be honest, sounded awful and only 'Wait' was as good as anything on here.

From: Dusty Date: July 12, 2004 at 16:38
I just bought this one, and i must say, it is very good. I think i like it more than Pride, it is indeed more mature, and just sounds very good. Love Blue Monday, great tune! Lots of good stuff here.

From: Uusiolli Date: August 5, 2004 at 19:46
Probably the best White Lion album, but that's not too much. Somehow on this one, it started to look like the band had lost it's vision. Still they did they best album, so maybe their vision was wrong. I say it again. I don't like Mike's voice, and Vito is a very good but not rock guitarist. If I can remember right. He's now given up playing totally or plays something completely different. Jazz or latino music. Enoughsaid 6,5/10

From: Adam Blackheart Date: August 15, 2004 at 18:46
What can I say... I LOVE IT. Mike, Vitto & co were most original musicians of crazy crazy 80's so White Lion was most original band... I LOVE IT.

From: Geoff Date: August 15, 2004 at 20:41
This one is actually my favourite White Lion CD.Alongside 'Big game' it is unbelievable. That was such a weak album, and this is a musical force, heavy and melodic - brilliant. Although 'Pride is more consistant I prefer the balls of this one, and the better songs are their best yet - 'Lights and Thunder','Broken Heart','Love Don't Come Easy','You're All I Need','It's Over' Are probably my 5 favourite White Lion songs. I don't really like the rest, but at this point these 5 have done enough.8/10

From: willow_ufgood Date: October 19, 2004 at 8:40
Very good CD. What was the reason for breaking up?

From: WhiteLion Date: November 4, 2004 at 12:34
Love this cd. Always like Mike Tramp, Vito etc. ALL the songs are good 1 to 12 period

From: Elton Braga Date: April 13, 2005 at 16:46
Better than Big Game, some marking songs, following the L.A. Hard Rock style with ability! Warsong and Lights And Thunder are the better ones of this album!

From: Sven Pelz Date: May 29, 2005 at 6:52
Man, i can`t find words for this CD. I love the foice, Mike Tramp is one of the best singer in the buisness. The songs are damn great. I love this Cd, for me it`s the best record from the Band.

From: 80's Hard Rock Date: February 4, 2006 at 14:55
This is surteinly one of the best hard rock cd:s there is, Broken Heart is unbelieveble GOOD!!! I can't get enough of that song! Buy this cd right away!

From: Stravincere Date: May 31, 2006 at 11:52
This is an 11/10 though the song quality might not be consistent. The power ballad, 'your all i need', is truly the ballad of all ballads. The best there is, hence the rating. It includes the best bridge ever written, by the best band ever to set foot on this planet.

From: WASP1 Date: June 26, 2006 at 18:57
Good effort with decent results. They always showed their potential at times in the other albums, but they finally started to take chances with this album. Unfortunately it was around the same time that this kind of music was going out of style.

From: metalizzer Date: April 7, 2007 at 20:05
this is a good -bye album to all melodic hard rock bands, with the arival of fuckinīshit grunge!......... but itīs up to us all to bring this back!!! letīs all fight to survive!!!

From: murat Date: August 5, 2007 at 9:36
This is a great album . Quality musicianship, great vocals , great riffs . 'Till Death Do us Part' was my wedding song

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 11:49
This is a good CD, a lot better then Big Game,but it didn't sell too well as grunge was starting to get popular with the likes of Nirvana.

From: poser forever Date: June 14, 2009 at 15:20
Simply one of the greatest albums of all time. The hard rock giants released in 1991 a milestone in hard rock history with monster tracks like "Love Don't Come Easy" and "It's Over". Excellent production by mr.Zito and great performances by the band. Maybe in my top 10 of all times. Great memories!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 9, 2011 at 20:01
Outstanding album!!!..very consistent one...best shots for me are "Leave Me Alone" & "Love Don't Come Easy"..but there are plenty of goodie ones..."Lights & Thunder","Broken Heart","Warsong"(rocks!),"Till Death Do Us Part","Out With The Boys"(catchy) & "Farewell To You"...agree with the good comments above...great disc!.93/100

From: Sly009 Date: June 23, 2012 at 2:18
This is the best album. never dig the grunge shit, this is one hell of a cd, all songs that is.

From: edukiki Date: September 6, 2016 at 14:16
For the people said, that Leave Me Alone is a bad song, sorry listen this song at MAXIMUN VOLUMEN, the guitars and the battery parts are incredibles, but is a song to listen at masimun volumen like Warsong too

From: Wardy Date: September 19, 2016 at 7:18
Not as immediate or fancy as its predecessors but a far more back to front fullfilling listen. Once upon a time WhiteLion were known for occasionally stepping away from the party, ManeAttraction is heavy on wordly views and in doing so exudes a road weary trodden down but experienced band making good on their crown. Sure there's some compulsory fodder but even those are high calibre. Recorded Broken Heart is magnificent, She's Got Everything silly but head nodding brilliance and for all its lyrical dumbness there's got to be a backstory to the engaging OutWithTheBoys can't but sing along. Too many ballads yes but they too value add, the bottom end groove to It'sOver kicks and LoveDontComeEasy is solid. The mighty Lights&Thunder rages outta the box, Warsong is thundering possibly a prelude to Mike's wonderful transition to FreakOfNature and the finale FarewellToYou a perfect fitting tribute to us fans. With huge production to boot, for 91 ManeAttraction was a juggernaut of a record 8.5
