If your not a fan of loud glam rock music my advise is stay away from this CD, but you really don't know what your missing! Slade are looked upon as a the oppitomy of everything that was wrong with the 70's. Bad hair, bad clothes and loud music. But during the doom and gloom of strikes and 3 day weeks, Slade shined like Noddy Holders mirrored top hat and reminded everyone that music should'nt be taken seriously, it should be enjoyed!
From the rousing holler of "Get down and get with it" to the closing bars of the greatest christmas carol ever written,"Merry Xmas everybody", this is glam at it's greatest!
Being a Wolverhampton lad myself I've always loved Slade and armed with this CD, I have convinced many people to grow ridiculous sideburns and buy stupidly high platform boots. Blessed with one of the greatest rock voices ever, Noddy Holder and his bunch of yobs not only made your ears bleed with blistering glam stompers, they made you smile! "Mama weer all crazee now" and "Cum on feel the noize" sum this band up perfectly, loud and over the top! They were in many respects the original Spinal Tap, their amps did go up to 11. But underneath all this pomp and glitter you have one song that remains one of the most beautiful yet underrated of all time."How does it feel" is a side of Slade rarely heard and never remembered. A ballad of wonderous magnitude it puts pains to all the critics who said they were just a pub rock band who made it big. This CD shows all off Slades sides from a career that spanned over 20 years. Glam anthems, mid tempo dittys, heart breaking ballads and, from later in their career, heavy metal!
Everyone should buy this CD so we can start a glam rock revival, go absolutly crazee and generally make the world a happier place. An essential addition to all rock fans collections!
