By 1992, Nirvana were the predatory fish on MTV and radio- forcing the popularity of bands like Great White to plunge to their depths. Coming off their 80's Glory-Daze, Great White refused to become extinct and entered the 70's as ferocious as ever. The result is their 1992 effort 'Psycho City'.
Soundwise the band still continues to flirt with the same type of blues based hard rock they did in their 80's heyday but far more unconvincingly. In fact this is a remarkably weak album in terms of heaviness, with the band trying to sound tough but falling rather flat.
This offering from Jack Russell comes as a pleasant surprise. I expected a collection of bluesy hard rock bar-room stompers, but instead, I got something much smoother and, in my opinion, much classier.
