Skin were formed in 1993 by ex-Jagged Edge members Myke Gray and Andy Robbins (also formerly of Tokyo Blade & Shogun) along with former Kooga vocalist Neville MacDonald and drummer Dicki Fliszar, formerly from Bruce Dickinson’s touring band and band Vamp.

Product Description

Special Limited Deluxe Collector s Edition / Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / 7 bonus tracks / 16 page full colour booklet 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and full involvement from the artist. DURING THE EARLY 90s traditional hard rock had virtually been eradicated. Its presence overshadowed by the arrival of grunge, a primeval sludge reliant on down-tuned guitars and depressing lyrics. The grunge master plan was to exterminate melodic blues based rock and wipe it from the face of the earth. Fortunately, though, all was not lost. Central to the fightback were dedicated, hardnosed bands who were not content to take matters lying down. Whilst the Black Crowes and Brother Cain fought for their right to rock in the US, the UK hit back hard with exciting, young, chart bound talent that included Little Angels, Thunder and, of course, Skin. Formed from the ashes of respected Brit rock outfits Kooga and Jagged Edge and led by guitarist extraordinaire Myke Gray, Skin managed to confound the critics by securing heavy weight management, from Sanctuary (Iron Maiden) and a major label record deal from Parlophone. Their belief and the band's talent paid handsome dividends, helping to deliver 'Money', a top 20 hit single, and subsequently a top 10 UK album. Tours sold out and reviews were gushing. It was an amazing achievement. Originally issued in 1994, and produced by Keith Olsen (Whitesnake, Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne), Skin's self-titled debut album is big on hard hitting guitar riffs, killer hooks and meticulous production. Of course, the icing on the cake is vocalist Neville McDonald, a veritable iron lunged howler in the finest Coverdale/ Rodgers mould.

Format: Audio CD
Great bands release great debut albums and Skin's debut is no exception to the rule. From the killer opener 'Money' to teh soulfull closer 'Wings of an Angel', the quality never lets up. The rhythm section of Andy Robbins (bass) and Dicki Fliszar (drums) combine to form a solid base for Myke Gray's versatile guitar work. Over all this is Nev MacDonald's bluesy, soulfull voice that wrings every drop of emotion from the great songs like 'Shine Your Light', 'Colourblind' and 'Which are the Tears'. All ofthe elements shine under the professional sheen provided by Keith Olsen's production which never dilutes the underlying strength and power of the band.
Highlights? The album is a highlight in itself but, if forced to choose, it would have to be the powerhouse rendition of 'House of Love', the good-time singalong of 'Look But Don't Touch' and the sublime 'Tower of Strength'.
Skin's debut is certainly up there with 'Rock the Nation' by Montrose, Iron Maiden's eponymous first album and marillion's 'Script For a Jester's Tear' as one of the all time great debut albums.

I purchased this album when it was first released. I remember seeing the band play at Castle Donington 1994, they were simply amazing. Back to the album... This is one of the greatest rock debuts you will hear. The album does not really have a highlight as it is all one big highlight. Track after track of great music will great your ears when you play it. This album has been very hard to get at a good price since its release and the bonus tracks even harder. Now people who were not old enough to remember Skin can finally find out just how could they could be.

Have been looking for this album for years, really hard to get a hold of in the UK...
Some fantastic tracks inc Tower of Strength.
The genre is really soft rock, like early Whitesnake but without the drive.
All in all a good album, happy to give it 4 stars...

This album is a re-mastered version of the 1994 CD. I had one of the tracks on a compilation and decided to get the album on the strength of that one track.....I am so glad I did.

All eighteen tracks have something for everyone; the only two weak tracks are two covers in the middle. It's a combination of Whitesnake, Aerosmith, Def Leppard and The Black Crows.....if you like these groups just go out and buy this album. The lead singer has a great voice, backed up by the rest of the band.

Buy it - you won't be disappointed.

Only came across these reviews as looking for artwork for album. Have seen this band live a few times (years ago!)and this CD does them justice!!

Skin were a brilliant band, a real shame they had to split up. If you like Whitesnake but just a little bit softer then this is for you!!!

Highlights: House of love and (for a real sing along) Look But Don't Touch.

Skin had it all a great fan base attracting rock fans, a major label pushing their first album, top 20 singles everything was looking up. good group of musicians fantastic singer , guitarist supreme. press stop they slipped under the ice and drifted away..reunion gigs sprinkled here and there. what went wrong? this band are better than Def Leppard they should of been playing Madison square gardens.. not some low key hall in the middle of the country...brilliant debut album Zep, would have been proud of.
