AllMusic Review by

It's hard to believe Whitesnake had been around for 25 years, but it's true and they've got the double-CD release to prove it. And not only is 25 Year Anthology a tribute to the longevity to the band; more importantly, it's a tribute to the voice behind the band, David Coverdale. Starting from their first big hit, "Fool for Your Loving" (the non-Steve Vai version), and going all the way through to their other biggest hit, "Still of the Night" (on the classic 1987 eponymous release), the group covers every angle of Coverdale's career. Somewhere in between are stops by the hard-rockin' blues phase of Whitesnake, the hair metal power ballad Whitesnake-Zeppelin years, and the solo years of Coverdale when he went on to record with Jimmy Page. Make no bones about it, at two discs this really is all of the Whitesnake any fan new or old will ever need. It might prove to be a bit daunting for those just wanting to hear "Here I Go Again" or "Still of the Night," but for those ready and waiting for this celebration, get ready to turn this up to eleven.
