A satisfactory collection for refreshing the memories of the melodic rock years with one of the well-known bands of that era. Also maybe a good opportunity for new begginners to White Lion. Although I never became a so much die-hard-fan of that band it was nonetheless great for me to hear Vito as strangely one of the best guitarists in hair rock and the melancholic voice of Mike Tramp again. To me, the missing songs are maybe 'Goin Home Tonight' or 'You're All I Need'.

oh what a collection of great tunes. loves the band . too bad no longer together.

From: Trick Taylor Date: June 9, 2003 at 19:09
This is a fitting retrospect for a band that was always stuck in the B leagues. Personally, all the WL albums fell a bit short for me, but having the hits in one package changes my perception. I love 'Lights and Thunder' and 'Radar Love'. The ballads are sappy and crappy, save for 'Cry Freedom' which was a wonderful risk taking tune. I admire WL for not reuniting. Go your own way and move on. One of the better greatest hits packages out there.

WHITE LION WAS A PRETTY GOOD BAND .VITA BRATTA ROCKS BELEIVE IT OR NOT, HE'S STILL ONE OF THE BEST GUITARIST OUT THERE.I'M GLAD TO SEE THAT JAMES LAMENZO IS STILL ROCKING WITH DIAMOND DAVE!WHITE LION WROTE SOME GOOD BALLADS ALSO................BUT LIFE GO ONNOTHING LAST FOREVER!

From: Metal T Date: October 28, 2003 at 16:58
A nice collection of songs from a great band.Vito Bratta was underrated beyond belief,a phenomenal guitarist that never truly got his due.

From: Metal Pete Date: February 5, 2004 at 21:02
A safe buy for those curious about White Lion, this collection does have their best stuff on it. Get this, Y&T Ultimate Collection, Ratt 81-91 and yer off to a good start ;-)

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 13:01
Nice collection of tunes. Should have gone with all studio tracks and not the 2 live songs. Saw them with Stryper twice, one show I thought White Lion was the better band but at the other show White Lion sounded horrible which is kinda like their albums, some songs are really good and some are really bad. At least this collection is mostly the good.

From: jack Date: April 30, 2004 at 6:06
Really good stuff here! ALthough almost all the songs are very melodic. I think this album is betwween rock and pop instead of rock and metal.

From: Metal Jay Date: August 6, 2004 at 0:14
I love this band, but I think a group should have a few more albums out before they release a greatest hits cd. That being said this band did pack quite a few hits into their prior releases. 'Wait', Little Fighter', 'When The Children Cry', snd 'Cry For Freedom' being my favorites.Good collection of songs here. The 'Radar Love' cover isn;t great in my opinion though.

From: jack Date: August 24, 2004 at 6:46
But sadly,they never got to produce a few more albums-not even one! i will never forgive those grunge bands for that!

From: jan_vexel Date: September 17, 2008 at 9:25
has exactly what is needed for any regular 80's rock fan.i own their discography,but with their best of it,s really not worth buing them.

From: MetalllianStallion Date: May 7, 2009 at 0:12
This release along with 'Mane Attraction' are overrated on HH IMO. 'Pride'(3 X Platinum) shows this band poised at it's peak, but instead of taking it to the next level it was a downhill ride from there. I blame Tramp foremost with his Greenpeace lyrics and limited vocal range. Exhibit A: 'Cry for Freedom' 'Farewell to You' are mediocre songs not worthy of best of, and track #7. 'Big Game' stopped the band's momentum dead in it's tracks. When I first saw the 'Little Fighter' video I thought the band was going to push a whale back into the ocean or rescue a bird. The only good thing about that album is the guitar solo for that track and 'Radar Love'. Vito Bratta a.k.a. the East coast Eddie Van Halen was the backbone(sound) of this band. Although from what I know of him he seems like a character. He sued his former band(Ted Poley Syndrome) and refuses reunion gigs as he lives out his years at his parents house. I have no desire to see Tramp's White Lion which is a tribute band. R.I.P.

If you don't have anything of the band then this compilation will satisfy you fair enough...it brings a couple of live songs included which is not very common in bands when they release these "best of" so...get it!!!.90/100
