The beginning of phase two of April Wine began with 1993's Attitude, after leader Myles Goodwyn had put the band to bed in 1984. It rocketed to gold record business in Canada, illustrating that the Wine formula hadn't outdated itself and could still be hip enough on radio. A chock full of inspired boy-girl ballads make this comeback memorable, as Goodwyn still finds the hooks to tug on the heart strings. However, the rockers are nowhere near the band's shining moments, with the exception of the frenetic "Better Slow Down."
