Specialists/collaborators reviews

Solid Heirs to Journey's Throne

People often forget that Journey started as a group of young Santana alumni and that the players were actually really talented musicians. Super-slick pop can seem easier than it is, and Winger got a lot of flack for putting out a VERY slick product. But although it seemed like this band was another group of faces propped up by a savvy producer, it was actually a single face and four studio level musicians. All had done session work before, with Rod Morgenstern having a big gig with Steve Morse's Dregs. Reb Beach had been a fave of mastermind Beau Hill already. In fact, Winger the band was Hill's creation and such deserves a bit of the jabs.

But for those of us who like glam metal with plenty of guitar chops, Winger was a tantalizing band. Reb Beach had developed post-Van Halen tapping to a level that virtually only Satriani and Vai had achieved at that time. What's more, his incorporation of the techniques into the monstrously active and tasty solo to "Headed for a Heartbreak" but him on the guitar map forever. He gets some great spots throughout the album, but this solo is his legacy. I saw Winger on this tour as part of a triple bill, the first rock concert I attended. Beach's solo was one of the more impressive I've ever seen. But I digress...

The songs are good hard pop rock, with much more in common with Journey than even AC/DC and certainly little in common with Iron Maiden. But the chops of the players and especially the shred guitar are what elevated the album to more metal-minded interests.

Bottom Line: Pop Metal with a Great Shredder

Members reviews

From the beginning I want to say that the debut album of WINGER is one of the best and most spectaculat debut albums ever in the history of rock music!OK..the band had an impressive pedigree,Winger came from ALICE COOPER...Morgensters from Dixie Dreggs...Reb BEeach was a name too...but the tremendeous quality of the compositions and the sensational muicianship of all WINGER members,made of this album a true musical pearl!It's trully sensational,all compositions are so damn well worked and the solos of Reb Beach are stellar!It's pure US big rock,I won't say metal,it's hair metal maybee,but this album is timeless!A marvelous production with a big sound gave this album all the elements of a strong production and it wasn't any surprise that this album sold more then 1 million copied world wide!It's 100 % commercial,but that's it's charm-it perfectly combines the hard rock riffs with great melodies and choruses.KIP WINGER has a fabulous voice,powerful and warm in the same time ,with a wide range of vocal register in different tones!Madeleine is an excellent debut track with a punchy chorus and this amazing technicity of the solo of REB BEACH-trully impressive on each solo on any track of the album !PURPLE HAZE-the cover song from HENDRIX-proves how a classic can get new musical clothes and become really attractive at another level!All tracks are outstanding !Definitelly a classic-5 STARS for a perfect debut!
