Now let me start by saying Whitesnake were my favourite band of all time, in fact they still are in a nostalgic kind of way. I have followed old Cov and his ever changing band of merry men from the beginning and was one of those anoraks who used to follow the band round the country to nearly every gig. I've even met the suave old bastard. Yeah, there was a time when Coverdale could have recorded himself going to the toilet and I would have convinced myself (and others) that it was the album of the year. Not anymore I'm afraid. I want to like 'Into The Light', I really really do but I just can't get it to light my fire. There are a couple of good moments that hark back to the Cov/Page era ('Midnight Blue' and 'Love is Blind') and the reworking of 'Too Many Tears' from the last Whitesnake album is very cool indeed but overall it is a bland affair. The swansong of a true rock legend? Probably. I can't see Cov bouncing back onto the scene if this tired old blues routine is all he can come up with and he's simply to old for the shit that made him his fortunes. Sorry Dave, I think it could be time to take up Golf!

PS I'll still go and see him about fifty times if he tours!!!!!!!
