Greatest Whitesnake Albums

The Top Ten
1 Whitesnake

Amazing album. Then you add Steve Vai into the mix and it took this album and tour to the next level.

I can't find a filler song in the bunch. 8 out of 10 songs are great. I miss John Sykes.

Amazing album. I really like Still of the Night!

2 Ready an' Willing

This is the best album of the "classic" lineup of the band. Come an' Get It is good too. This is a different style to the more modern sounding later albums, well it's a different band really. "Blindman" and "She's a Woman" are gems!

One of my all-time favorites! Classic blues rocking Whitesnake from a lineup of rock-n-roll royalty: Lord Paice, Murray, Moody, Marsden, and Coverdale!

Pure bluesy hard rock with beer guts. This is the original sound of Whitesnake. Period.

3 Slide It In

The first Whitesnake 'metal' album? The 80s were most definitely here! Riffs at the front, tight compressed vocals, and reverb-drenched drums, even more so on the US release. The songs and performances are strong though I prefer the original solos to John Sykes' overdubs.

From front to back, it's an album you just don't skip songs on. It's up there with Van Halen 1 and Van Halen's 1984... and we know how badass those albums are.

By far the best Whitesnake album, from the title track to Standing in the Shadow it kicks ass. DC has great vocals on this album.

4 Come an' Get It

Overall the best 'Snake album. Killer songs and the balance between the blues and hard rock is just right. The blend between guitars and keys is perfect and Coverdale's voice is on top form.

I have to go with this one because of the song "Don't Break My Heart Again," which is the best song from Whitesnake. But "Slide It In" is also terrific.

Oh my God! My first LP and all-time favorite. Best WS ever, no fillers, just killers!

5 Slip of the Tongue

They had the best lineup, with Steve Vai being added. Fool For Your Loving, The Deeper the Love, Now You're Gone - all greats.

A great album from one of the best bands of hard rock.

6 Saints & Sinners

Has the original Here I Go Again. This album reminds me of November 11, 1982, when I saw them at the Cornwall Coliseum, which is now sadly gone.

7 Lovehunter

The best album of the great band!

8 Good To Be Bad

If anyone asked me to show them what is Whitesnake? I'd give them this album. Beach and Aldrich are perfect either side of Coverdale.

9 Trouble
10 Forevermore

This album is going to go up here and be underrated by everyone. But with songs like "Love Will Set You Free" and "All Out of Luck," this album deserves to be recognized as one of their best. Although the lineup may have changed over the years, I think that with Doug and Reb rocking it up there, it's a better lineup than the original. Listen to the "Love Will Set You Free" solo and then give me an honest argument. I dare you.

The Contenders
11 Snakebite
12 Live... in the Heart of the City

Excellent live album with the real and early "Snakes" lineup. Stellar live performance by the whole band. The sound production on this album is really impressive for a 1980 live concert recording (yes, even compared to the sound on their earlier studio albums too).

Featuring: David Coverdale, Bernie Marsden, and Micky Moody (brilliant guitar team together), Neil Murray (such an underrated and solid bass player), Jon Lord, and Ian Paice. (Ian's drum sound is "dialed in" very close to the "Burn" album).

Dislike? Nothing, it's a real live classic, this one!
