Artist discography


Not many bands succeed on combining artistic freedom with commercial songwriting as well as pro-musicianship with anthemic songs that even the most simple music lover can understand and listen to. Winger can!  Winger has most often and rather wrongly been described as a hair metal band which is far from the truth, what people saw back in the early 90´s were their MTV ballads and Kip´s good looks when the rest of the music was classic hard rock with progressive tendencies. I have loved this band ever since their first album and has always thought Reb´s riffs are up there in the same league as let´s say, Eddie Van Halen or Neal Schon. Winger´s new album "Karma" might not have a new "Headed for a heartbreak" or a "Rainbow in the rose" but it´s definitely just as good as their first two albums. I am so glad they took the upbeat lane of hard rock on the new album because even if I love "Pull" and "IV", there´s nothing like hearing Kip and Co letting go of all their energy for some hard hitting party rock! "Karma" is the best album of 2009 without competition!
