Restless Heart was supposed to be a David Coverdale solo album hence the more laid back nature. This is probably the closest to a pre-87 Whitesnake album. Starkers is a live acoustic album taken from a Japanese promotional tour for Restless Heart and again, not really part of the post-87 hard rock vein as it was one guitar and Coverdale's voice. I find it interesting that the least hard rock of the post-87 albums are the one you prefer.

All I can say is I saw them in August and he definitely did not fail miserably. When is the last time you attended one of the shows?

As for Joey Tempest, listen to Open Your Heart and Carrie on the new live album and tell me his voice hasn't changed and hasn't gained a rasp. My point is people age and their voices change. I still enjoy the new records and live performances of most of the bands I started listening to 3-4 decades ago, but I also realise their voices have changed. Some more than others. Look at DLR in Van Halen. His voice has changed, but I still enjoyed the last VH release. Alice Cooper's voice has changed over the years as well. All these guys have been going for 30+ years now. I'm not picking on Joey Tempest either. I'm looking forward to seeing Foreigner/Europe/FM in the spring and have no doubt they will put on a great show as when I have seen them previously.

The whole point of my post is Coverdale seems to get a lot of abuse on this board. The majority is for his live performance and also to a lesser degree the recent albums. I find the majority of these posters always point to their preferred era of pre-87.

And for the record I have enjoyed the live albums from Whitesnake, Def Leppard and Europe over the last 6 months, even with vocals that have changed over the years.
