Default Winger!

Anyone here like the band Winger?

I bought the first 2 albums albums for $5 each and I think they are good group... Songs like Madalaine, Seventeen, Rainbow in the Rose and Miles Away are great songs IMO!

Apparently they were heavily critisized in the early 90's for being part of the hairmetal group but (like Jovi) I think these guys were pretty darn talented and quite underrated... too bad they havn't done much as a group since 93..

I read somewhere they are planning on a new album soon btw.

so anyone else like this band or am I the only one?

They have a few good songs, but most of the songs were just musical masturbation by Reb Beech. Talented muscians maybe, but not that talented songwriters.

LOL totally agree with that!...IMO, they're even cheesier than Jovi with all that prettyboy image. Nothing to offer musically.

I first discovered Winger from the song Battle Stations from the Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey soundtrack yonks ago. I so far have Winger, In The Heart of The Young, Pull and the Best Of.

To some up, I would say their music was like Def Leppard in terms of vocals, but slightly heavier. Reb Beach is a killer guitarist and Kip Winger's voice is cool. They got some great songs but I find their albums don't really flow for me and lack a bit of consistancy. I'm not fussed on their ballads either. Headed For A Heartbreak is ok and I love the guitar on there, but I duno.

From what I've seen on good ol' Youtube, they seem pretty decent live aswell. I saw a clip of Kip playing Easy Come Easy Go solo acoustic, which was awesome. A tricky-lookin song to play and to sing well at the same time.

They're a really talented band musically, they just arrive a bit too late I guess.

I actually think that Reb is a very tasteful player. Winger have only one good song, though - In The Day We'll Never See. _ALL_ the others I've ever heard are boring beyond belief.

If I were to recommend a Winger album to someone, it would be the Best Of, and then just download album-tracks like Loosen Up, In The Day We'll Never See, In My Veins and No Mans Land.

Yeah, Loosen Up is okay. Had to learn to play it once.

WINGER reunited after more than a decade in 2006 for the release of the successful come back album entitled "IV" a record that pushed forward the boundaries of WINGER classic sound to new heights. Dealing with the concept of the military life and what it was like to be a soldier, from a soldier's perspective, leaving politics at the door. "After Winger IV we toured the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan during which made a live record" says Kip Winger. "When the chance came up to do a new Winger record, I envisioned a upbeat totally rocking record that was a cross between the 1st Winger album and Pull. So Reb and I sat down and wrote all the music in a month or so. I worked for 6 months to finish it in the classic Winger style".

The result is an amazing new record where the four band members: Kip Winger (bass and vocals), Reb Beach (guitars now also in Whitesnake), Rod Morgenstein and John Roth shine with an incredible instrumental and vocal prowess at the service of superb Hard Rock songs but with an uncanny sense of melody. The title itself "Karma" represents Winger completing its full musical circle as Kip Winger explains "We were discussing the very interesting path the band has had and we have all been through so much together. So we went for "Karma" as this is a word that truly sums up the experience of being in the band".

WINGER debut album in 1988 on Atlantic achieved platinum status in the United States, and gold in Japan and Canada sporting such hits as "Madalaine", "Seventeen" and "Headed For A Heartbreak". In 1990, the band was nominated for an American Music Award for "Best New Heavy Metal Band". Shortly after, WINGER released its second album "In the Heart of the Young", which went platinum in the U.S. and gold in Japan. The album included WINGER's biggest hit "Miles Away", who topped at #12 of Billboard charts in the USA. Their third and last studio album, "Pull", was recorded in 1992/93 as a three-piece band, following the original keyboard / guitar player Paul Taylor's departure. Produced by Mike Shipley, on the following tour John Roth was called in to replace Paul Taylor.

"Usually Winger fans don't "expect" anything because they know we do what we feel like doing artistically" explains Kip. "It is not a commercially driven band. I can say that the songs are very upbeat". Reb Beach adds: "It's a very up-tempo riff driven rocking record. It has the elements of vintage Winger from '89 but has the blood, sweat and tears of years 20 years of writing, recording and touring!"

"Karma" will be released with the first pressing in limited digipak edition and includes the following songs:

Deal With The Devil; Stone Cold Killer; Big World Away; Come A Little Closer; Pull Me Under; Supernova; Always Within Me; Feeding Frenzy; After All This Time; Witness; First Ending (Bonus Track). Also included there will be an Electronic Press Kit, with footage filmed in the studio during the recording sessions, that is playable on all computers as an interactive bonus.
