Great comeback album

"Given the rise of grunge and alternative rock, 1993 just seems like a weird time for an arena rocking band to mount a comeback, but that's exactly what Canadian rockers April Wine did when they released Attitude, their 13th album overall and first since 1985's Walking through Fire.

Attitude is a very melodic, pop-oriented AOR album that shows absolutely no awareness of the changing musical climate. You won't find any depressing, high-angst, low energy sludge here. Instead Attitude is crammed full of Myles Goodwyn's trademark upbeat rock songs. I love the rocking "Good from Far (Far from Good)", "Better Slow Down" and leadoff track "Givin' It, Takin' It", and "Can't Take Another Nite" is an absolutely terrific ballad (it sounds like a less sappy upgrade of their hit "Just Between You and Me"). Honestly though, I don't think any of the 14 songs on Attitude really qualify as filler, though the album does lose some momentum towards the end (which closer "Girl in my Dreams" recovers nicely).

If you enjoyed April Wine in the late 70's and throughout the 80's, you should love what you hear on Attitude. I also highly recommend it to anyone who's a fan of the 80's and early 90's melodic rock sound. It might not be quite as good as the band's better 80's releases, but I think Attitude comes pretty darned close.

NOTE: I've seen two different versions of Attitude. The Unidisc version (a reissue, I believe) has artwork on the tray side of the back insert, while the original was blank. The songs are the same on both, and the Unidisc version doesn't appear to have been remastered, so the difference in the two editions is pretty much skin deep."
Great comeback.

"This probably was really a surprise for the fans most of whom by that time buried April Wine in the same tomb where the remains of Blue Oyster Cult and Golden Earring were gathering dust for a decade. This is an album with a very convincing drive and real heavy metal feel to it - songs like "Here's Lookin' At You Kid" and "Better Slow Down" are excellent fast hard-rock numbers crushing your eardrums relentlessly and both with great tunes! "That's Love", "Givin' It Takin' It", "Strange Kind of Love", "Luv Your Stuff" are other highlights with very good guitar work and rhythm. Of course, filler is more than evident here but at least it doesn't overshadow the good half of the album."
Good Rockin Here

"I found this album my accident, but after playing it a lot I think it may be #1 or 2 of their best albums. If you like April Wine you should really love this album. It simply rocks. From Texas just keep on rockin!!!!"
