Great White - Rising

It would be awesome to hear the angry, horny, hard-rocking Great White once again. Arguably, they still have a “Stick It” or a “Rock Me” in their system, but unfortunately that old brilliance won’t be heard with Rising, especially in the ears of those who were anticipating this new release. Sounding more like a Jack Russell solo album than something out of the jaws of Great White, Rising is a disappointment, an atrocity, actually. Original members Mark Kendall, Michael Lardie, and Audie Desbrow withhold their badassed blues-based metal licks to let Jack showcase much-mellower-than-usual shit, both vocally and in the lyrical sense. Fans deserve better, even if the band decides to do one for the band. If taken as feel good listening, then the nostalgic, mandolin-laced “Only You Can Do” should catch a ballad lover's groovy groove, while an unrocked Mista Bone gets gummed by this otherwise toothless fish of a record.
