I was a senior in high school when this album came out and wore the cassette (that's right kids!) out in my car. Listening to it now, John Sykes is just killing it on the entire album! His guitar has got chorus on it but it doesn't sound dated and he is just wailing all over the place! I don't understand why Coverdale didn't take him on tour and got Adrian Vandenberg to replace him. Sykes is way better! His playing on Whitesnake is better than Vai's playing on the following album.
