Elation is the twelfth studio album by the American hard rock band Great White, released in May 2012. It is the first Great White studio album to feature vocalist Terry Ilous. Additionally, it is the first one without original vocalist Jack Russell.[1]

The album was announced on 18 March 2012,[1] for a release on 18 May in Europe and 22 May in North America on Frontiers Records.[2] It will also be released in Japan.[1] Elation was produced, recorded and mixed by Michael Lardie and Mark Kendall, the band's two guitarists.[2]

Reception[edit]

Since its release, the album has been met with mixed to positive responses. William Clark of Guitar International wrote, "Those memorable blues rock riffs that scatter Great White’s biggest hits are in excess with Elation."[3] Sleaze Roxx gave a mixed review, saying "With Mark Kendall on guitar you really can't go wrong, but without his longtime partner Jack Russell, Elation isn't all it could be".[4] The album was later remixed by George Tutko available as MP3s on Amazon and MP4s on iTunes.
