New Winger album is out right now! Grab it! It's just amazing; a masterpiece from a band of rock geniuses. 10/10.

From: TIM (2) Date: October 27, 2006 at 4:37
A darker,more complex version of WINGER returns. The simple song-structures of the past have been replaced by hidden hooks/melodies that only unravel after lots of spins. Only the mid-section (tracks 5-8) are immediate,the rest needs time 2 appreciate. But even then the slightly depressing tone of the CD,& flat production don't help. Nor do 'M16' or 'Generica';the worst tracks WINGER have ever put to CD. Buy it,stick with it,& dont expect another 'Pull' & you should enjoy it (eventually). 7/10.

From: Geoff Date: November 22, 2006 at 22:56
Wow, this one really saddened me. I love the first 3 Winger albums, especially 'Pull' but this is just a pale, pale version of the Winger many of us know and love. 'Blue suede shoes', 'M16' and 'Generica' are pretty much as bad as music ever gets. Most the songs are pretty damn bad and for me, 'Your great escape' and 'Short flight to Mexico' are the only decent songs. The rest ranges from bad to terrible and I never thought I'd say this of Winger, but this is a huge, huge disappointment.

From: FM Date: September 13, 2007 at 15:10
This is easily the best melodic hard rock album of 2006, and I do hear a lot working for a magazine. Everyone expecting an album like the first two will obviously be disappointed, but there's no point in calling this excellent, mature mixture of 'Pull' and Kip's solo albums bad music. It may not be what you (quite absurdly) expected it to be, but by no means you should bash it just because of that. Mature, confident songwriting, good lyrics, awesome melodies, and a grower as well. Unmissable.

From: aTomiK Date: December 20, 2007 at 11:07
Very good album and a grower like FM said. If u love 'Pull' u will like this. While not quite so good cd, itīs close enough. I just donīt understand the complaining here and there. Two thumbs up! 94/100

From: Edu winger Date: December 23, 2007 at 9:15
atomik said everything. And what about the fantastic cover art? Masterpiece.

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 12:57
This record takes time,but it's pretty good,well worth it.

From: Wachen Date: May 31, 2008 at 12:25
If you think Winger should sound like they did on their debut or "In the heart of the young" you probably don't like this at all. But to me, this album is the best the band has ever put out, period! Take "Pull" and mix it with Kip's solo-CD "This conversation seems like a dream" and you have a hint what this sounds like. A classic! 100/100

From: edwithmj Date: August 19, 2008 at 9:10
This is sililar in musical style to Springhead Motorshark by Britny Fox. Like that one, this needs a lot of time to get into and is A LOT different to their earlier releases. Some good songs on this but I was hoping for a lot better.

From: CC Date: September 18, 2008 at 23:02
I can see why some might not like this, but I thought it was a great album. Ok, so it aint gonna replace Pull as my favourite, but its certainly not as bad as some people say. Anyone who expected the first three albums all over again was deluding themselves. Winger has matured lyrically and musically album by album, with each album being less and less "good time", and have moved with the times. As has been said though, this is maybe not as instant as the rest of their catalogue, and might need time to grow!

From: Kindred Date: January 24, 2009 at 14:05
I was always a huge Winger fan, but I wish Kip would keep his politics out of his music. I get his point, but lets hear some fun hard rockin' music next time.

From: DanceWithMadness Date: March 18, 2009 at 15:13
OH MY GOD..THIS IS A PICTURE PAINTED PERFECT..WHAT AN ALBUM..SUK ON THAT JAMES HETFEILD WHATEVER YOUR NAME IS..U SHALL NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITZ COVER..WHO'S THE CROSS DRESSER NOW? KISS KISS BANG BANG!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 25, 2009 at 2:13
"Four Leaf Clover"...i love the beat of that song...a great come back after their Pull album...maybe...of course they did change their sound coz natural evolution in music.I'll give this a 80/100

From: hair metal again Date: November 9, 2009 at 3:42
strange come back after the legendary "pull". i never gave up on kip,ithink his personal releases are fantastic and he is a great artist.their new release needs some time in order to get through it and i think overall is good work,but not in the high quality lever of their previous.heavy,complicated sound with good riffs and excellent performance ,but the songwriting is nothing special.one problem is that you dont remember the songs after some minutes,they are not as catchy asthey should.winger here choose a darker direction and getting away from the sound of their past.in my opinion they could change their name and do whatever they like.in my heart they will always be one of the greatest hair metal bands of all time.

From: guitarrizer Date: June 18, 2019 at 6:09
Give this CD a chance, it goes not too long from "Pull"! More progressive. I still prefer "IV" over "Karma" and "Better Days Comin'". The best track is "Disappear", very "Pull"-vibe. The only track I can't stand is "Generica".

From: Auslander Date: February 28, 2020 at 0:15
I finally found a copy of this that didn't cost me an arm and leg and... I am underwhelmed. I will give it more of a chance of course and listen a few times more, but I was hoping for less angry, more melody. Awesome album cover art though.
