Winger has always been a band structured around songwriting and performance, yet in the early days bassist and founding member Kip Winger could always be found on the cover of a magazine or a staple through his mid section as the centerfold. Too often the band had more articles and photos due to their physical attributes and sex appeal than their actual playing...
Four and a half years have passed since the release of "Karma", which treated the listener to a stunning mix of all things Winger had brought us in the past. That album was definitely worth 5 out of 6 stars and nobody was surprised to see it landing at #5 in our album poll of 2009. If the new album will reach that same height remains to be seen. Since I got a promo copy, I have listened to it again and again and I have to admit that it´s a grower...
Twenty years ago Winger, lead by lead vocalist and bassist Kip Winger, barely registered on my hard rock radar. They arrived on the scene in 1989 when glam rock and metal was suffering a cardiac arrest. They were just another band with big hair and a glitzy image. There was nothing new under the sun and besides, GnR was kicking more ass and taking names (and basically putting the pussy spandex crowd in their place)...
"Love me like a ritual!" wails retro-pompwindbag Kip Winger on Pull. Like a formula is more like it. And this onereally belongs to Def Leppard, who, unlike the band Winger namedafter himself, are clever enough to rub two power chords together toforge a great hook, and smart enough not to mix metaphors withoutproper supervision. D
The pall pop metal casts upon 1990's horrendous Hot 100 is a triumph of mass narrowcasting. By downplaying anything blatant in the music, marketers minimize tuneouts based on accidents of gender or subgeneration--potentially, any passive Caucasian under age 25 should be willing to consume (in descending order of marginal differentiation) Poison or Warrant or Jon Bon or Heart or Cheap Trick or David Goddamn Cassidy. So let the nadir stand in for all of them...
Winger's new album, In the Heart of the Young, contributes at least one goodie tocivilization, and that's the video of its opening cut (and firstsingle) "Can't Get Enuff." The lyrics of the song are about a guy whocan't get enough of his girl, but in the video it's the girl who'sinsatiable. She drags the boy over to one of those coin-operatedphoto booths, dances inside, pulls the curtain shut, and to the boy'sutter astonishment starts tossing out her clothes...
Winger's second album, In the Heart of the Young, continues in the same vein of slick, progressive-tinged, radio-ready pop-metal featured on their debut -- almost what Asia or 90125-era Yes might sound like as hair bands. The melodies and guitars still twist and turn in unpredictable directions, but the material on In the Heart of the Young isn't always as musically interesting as the songs on Winger. Plus, the inclusion of more ballads detracts from the overall energy...
If you can forgive an aging Kip Winger for singing the praises of jailbait in "Seventeen," then Winger Live is a harmless, nostalgic trip through the glamour and glitz of '80s hair metal. The band's entire founding lineup is present -- a rare feat for any 20-year-old act, but one that's especially impressive given this genre's high turnover rate in the 21st century...
Many figured that the last they heard from Winger was 1993's coolly received Pull, as the group splintered shortly after the album's release in the face of grunge's brief reign and Beavis & Butthead deeming the group un-hip. But with just about every '80s band reuniting in the much more hair metal-friendly climate of the early 21st century, it was only a matter of time until the Winger gentlemen reappeared...
