Winger got a raw deal. After being lambasted on Beavis and Butthead the band became the personification of pansy hair metal. It's too bad because I think these guys have chops. I like this album better than the White Lion one I have. "Seventeen" was the big album off this one of course. Just put your prejudices aside and check this disc out. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Useless Fact: While the song is awesome the subject matter of "Seventeen" is a little creepy. I assure you if Kip Winger ever tried to get his aqua-net stained hands on my seventeen year old daughter, he would be eliminated post haste! He's probably got a seventeen year old of his own, I wonder what Kip Winger The Father thinks of this song now?
