Of all the early Van Halen records, Fair Warning often gets overlooked – partially because it's a dark, strange beast, partially because it lacks any song as purely fun as the hits from the first three records. Because of that, there were no hits from Fair Warning that turned into radio anthems; only "Unchained" and, to a lesser extent, the grinding opener, "Mean Street," rank among the group's best-known songs, and they're not as monumental as "And the Cradle Will Rock," from the preceding album, Women and Children First…
If anybody really needed additional proof that all of their songs are timeless, classic and independent of trends and fashions, then Fair Warning provide that proof incontestably on Pimp Your Past. The current album by the band from Northern Germany features 2016 versions of the most important tracks from their first three studio albums Fair Warning, Rainmaker and Go!, originally released between 1992 and 1997. Every single note sees Fair Warning underline the motto which they have chosen for themselves: a good song will always remain a good song…
As all the previous albums “Aura” too was developed in true FAIR WARNING style: For the production of their albums the four musicians always choose unusual locations with a very special atmosphere.
Fair Warning return after a break some fans thought might be permanent. The band broke into two side projects - Dreamtide and Soul Doctor - both offering something a little different from the traditional FW sound. A strong European melodic hard rock release and a solid comeback for the band. The album doesn't deliver any real surprises, but at the same time, there is no unwarranted style or direction change which often frustrates fans. ’Brother's Keeper’ is purely and simply classic Fair Warning.
Fair Warning is a Melodic Hard Rock Band from Germany. This album is great! The band proved that they can play their songs very well during a show. The sound quality is almost perfect on the first cd (the live one), all the songs are good, especially 'Follow My Heart', 'Save Me' and 'Get A Little Closer'. The second cd is not live, but the songs are also good. Highlights for 'Like A Rock' and 'Give In To Love'.
"Early Warnings: '92~'95" - Japanese Exclusive Coupling collects songs from the band's first two albums as well as some live material. It features 16 tracks of ultra melodic hard rock, and is the perfect album for anyone unfamiliar with the band's work.
"Rainmaker" is the second studio album released by the hard rock band Fair Warning. Whereas the "Fair Warning" album had an upbeat vibe, very close the late 80's USA Arena Rock sound, its successor was a much more mature sounding record.
Japanese division of Wea Music puts out this live CD by German melodic rock combo Fair Warning, a band that rose from the ashes of Zeno. The gig included on this disc was recorded at Club Cita in Kawasaki/Tokyo, Japan on April 18, 1993. From the start Fair Warning had a bigger following In Japan than in their home country and Europe, and this CD underlines this once more. Excellent recording. Check out the truly amazing vocals.
