Whiplash Smile is the third studio album by English rock vocalist Billy Idol. It was released on 20 October 1986 by Chrysalis Records. After his successful album Rebel Yell (1983), Idol continued his collaboration with Keith Forsey and Steve Stevens while writing and producing songs for the album. Commercially, the album noted a success similar to his previous album

Although it was ultimately an unsatisfying album, failing to live up to the promise of its fabulous single, "To Be a Lover," Whiplash Smile still burned clean with an immediately recognizable 1980s energy. Like Billy Idol himself, who affected the punk archetype but cut it with a two-dimensional, cartoonish plasticity perfect for the decade, Whiplash Smile expands on the sound of the 1983 breakthrough Rebel Yell while cleverly leaving its key elements unchanged.

Released on 20 October 1986, Whiplash Smile is the third studio album by Billy Idol. Idol had this to say about the making of the album: Whiplash Smile had a lot of potential. It should have been a worthy successor to Rebel Yell, an album featuring a real band working, rehearsing, and recording songs collaboratively.

Allmusic review is quite offbase on this one. Reviewer disses on "Sweet Sixteen" yet it was a big '86 summer hit. Very catchy hook (reviewer apparently missed that one). Of course, "To be a Lover" was the biggest hit - deservedly so. Side 1 (for the lp and cassette owners) was the best part of the album. Side 2 had "Don't need a Gun" (also an excellent, catchy single) and pretty strong. Only the last 2 songs were filler for me. Idol really stretched his musical palette here and, to me, nails it big time. At least he didn't tiredly rinse and repeat the same "Rebel Yell" formula. 8 keepers out of 10 makes for an excellent, consistent album. As a guitar player, Steve Stevens is amazing on this album - criminally underrated, sublimely inventive, innovative and inspired. Steve deserved co-billing status with Billy. Too bad they split up after this (only to reunite almost 20 years later on his comeback effort). I rate this 4 stars out of 5 (just a smidgen behind his best work, Rebel Yell).
