With their third album, Once Bitten…, Great White finally perfected their blend of bluesy Aerosmith grind and Van Halen hard rock flamboyance. It all comes to a head on "Rock Me," a minor hit single that brought them to a broader audience, but there are a couple of other moments – such as the sleazy "Lady Red Light" or "Save Your Love" – illustrating that Great White is more than a one-hit wonder. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
"Once Bitten…" is the first album of British-Norwegian Hard rock supergroup The Snakes, released in August 1998. The Snakes feature Jorn Lande on vocals, ex-Whitesnake members Micky Moody and Bernie Marsden on guitars, Sid Ringsby (Jorn / TNT) on bass and Willy Bendiksen (Jorn) on drums. Great CD produced by Ronni Le Tekro (TNT guitarist) and heavily recommended for fans of Whitesnake.

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.
A cursory glance at Great White's discography would suggest that they don't need another compilation. But Capitol Records' 1993 kiss-off The Best of Great White: 1986-1992 was a skimpy set that omitted the Top 40 pop hit "The Angel Song" and other key tracks; Back to Back Hits was shared with April Wine and contained only five Great White tracks; the 2000 Best of Great White was a ten-track budget album from Capitol Special Markets; and Latest & Greatest consists of re-recordings. Thus, Greatest Hits is the first thorough compilation of the band's EMI and Capitol recordings, 1984-1992.
Jack Russell's Great White represents the next phase of a legacy. Rather than look backwards and merely attempt to relive the multi-platinum hard rock entity s storied origins in Great White, Jack Russell set his sights on the future. Now, with old Great White bandmate, Tony Montana in tow, this group has a sharp, soaring and slick new album ready, boasting the bluesy hard rock stomp that made Russell a star in the first place.
