4.0 out of 5 stars Stand by for a good album (not pain!) 25 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I think the problem that ex-members of successful bands always encounter, is that on one hand, do they release a fan-pleasing solo album that sounds just like the group they’ve just left, or do they potentially alienate that loyal fan base by taking a bit of a risk & record a album that places them out of their musical comfort zone.
For Widowmaker’s second album, Dee Snider chose the latter option, if Desperado was what UK band Thunder may have sounded if Dee was on lead vocal, then “Stand by for..” is Dee joining Metallica, but with added Snider melodies, although “Bad Rain” & “Cry a Dying..” have an interest blues feel to them, adding a bit of diversity to the album.
Dee vocals are bit gruffer, adding to the harder edge of the albums sound, but the highlight of the CD for myself is “The Iron Road”, which would have fit quite nicely on “Under the Blade” (perhaps that’s why it’s my favourite track).
Released in the mid-nineties, the worst possible time, not only was it post-metal, it was post-grunge & record companies were flapping around for the next bit musical genre (Hootie & the Blowfish anybody?), so it was no surprise that the record was not a hit.
So a contemporary rock album (for the time), & quite accessible despite it harder sound & if you’re a TS fan, you should enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A step back for Mr. Snider 5 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This second album of Widowmaker featuring ex Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider is not nearly as hard pumping as the former album. Seems like D. Snider's muse has finally disappeared. Generally the album lacks the wrenching of theguitars, the pounding of the drums and the diversity of Snider voice, as you would expect. However if you are a dedicated Snider fan (as I am) you should still buy this album, hence the 3 stars.
