I like this album better than the previous duo. They focused on their strengths and wrote some great tunes.  The cool part is no cover tunes.  I dig Great White covers for the most part, but it was nice to have a whole album without one.

I only know the three songs that made it onto their Greatest Hits from Psycho City (Step On You, Old Rose Motel and Big Goodbye) and think they're pretty solid. Out of those three, I think Old Rose Motel is the best.

I only picked up this cd fairly recently myself, however, I was quite familiar with many if not all of the songs on it. My old roommate had this album and played it all the time. When his girlfriend broke up with him (briefly), he would play 'Love Is A Lie' over and over again.

This is my favorite Great White album. "Love is a Lie" is such a great ballad. I also love the title track, "Doctor Me," "Big Goodbye," "Step On You" and "Get on Home."

"Old Rose Motel" was in their setlist for the longest time, right up until the feud started between Jack and the band. It always sounded awesome live.

"Maybe Someday" is another good bluesy ballad, if a bit long.

I still have that Best Of. It's a great collection of cool songs and I enjoy listening to it often.

I remember buying that one as a new release at Tower Records. Kept it for a few years, then eventually upgraded to this one...



...which had a bigger and better track selection (IMO).

Never heard of that one before. I looked it up and it does have a nice track selection but the live tracks kind of kill it for me.

My primary reason to upgrade to this version was really just for one song...



I had this on an old cassette-single (remember those?) and my friends and I played the hell out of this song. One guy used to play it on acoustic guitar when we'd sit around drinking and smoking.

It was a b-side to 'House of Broken Love' I think. I also had a bad mp3 download of it for a few years too.

Yea, I considered that one too (mostly for the cover art Laughing ). There are quite a few GW hits packages out there. And the track listings are all over the place. Hits, rarities, b-sides, live cuts, you name it.
