David Coverdale's late-'80s MTV mainstays put out only one studio album each in the '90s and '00s. But on their first of the '10s, they're still goin' down the only road they've ever known: A couple rhythmically inclined sub-Zeppelin swingers ("Tell Me How," "Whipping Boy Blues"); a couple heavified speed-charges ("Dogs In The Street," "My Evil Ways"); a couple soul-baring strummers ready to follow Bon Jovi to Nashville ("One Of These Days," "Fare Thee Well"); a closing seven-minute mountainside epic ("Forevermore.") Not to mention, naturally, plenty of bloozy and ballady plodding.
