Great White - ...Twice Shy
...Twice Shy is the fourth studio album released by the American hard rock band Great White. It was released in 1989 and contained the biggest hits of their career, a cover ofIan Hunter's "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" and "The Angel Song", which reached No. 5 and No. 30 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively. Another single, "House of Broken Love", was inspired by the painful relationship break-ups that vocalist Jack Russell and guitarist Mark Kendall had recently gone through. The album was certified Double Platinum in September 1989.
AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
With ...Twice Shy, Great White followed through on the promise of Once Bitten..., turning in a tight, hard-rocking album that featured well-chosen covers (Ian Hunter's "Once Bitten Twice Shy") and impressive originals that replicated the classic arena rock sound of the '70s ("House of Broken Love," "Mistah Bone"). The result was the band's best album and its most popular -- the album broke into the Top Ten and sold over two million copies.
