For me, aside from Judgement Day and The Deeper The Love, this is the bands (if such a thing existed by then) absolute low point. Steve Vai and his 'sonic tapestries from hell' (FFS) tore to shreds any remaining traces of the brilliant blues based hard rock band that the UK and Europe loved.
The rot started to set in on the 1987/ST album, in my opinion, which was patchy and the lure of the American riches was too much to resist for Coverdale. Good luck to him, and it paid off, but it spelt the end of his career effectively. I saw them play in London in 1994, I think, with Warren DeMartini and it was just dreadful.
Slip.... is almost unlistenable for me. Apart from the 2 good songs it's puerile lowest common denominator 'metal'. All flash and no substance and doesn't deserve to have the Whitesnake name attached to it.
