Winger, Kip

Songs from the Ocean Floor

It took me a long time to get over my initial disappointment in Kip's first solo album. I eventually got over it though (years later) and when I began listening to his new material without the expectation that it should sound like the band that bared his name, I found that many of the elements that I admired about his heavier work were still present albeit in a different context. He has clearly gone in a different direction. There is nothing metal about this album, but the songs are well written and the voice is still there. I won't say this as good as the Winger I remember, but it's as good as this kind of music gets, and I'll take it for now, just to hold me over until Winger returns. --Scott
