A seven foot man (including hair}jumping up and down on the Top of Pops stage screamimng "I am and I'm me" and wearing so much make up, he looks like Barbara Cartlands ugly sister is a powerful image. That was my introduction to Twisted Sister back in 1983, it still lives with me. Believe me Twisted Sister are worth a million of the bland bands that pass for music these days!
The ugly sisters of the glam metal world, Twisted Sister were agressive and uncompromising. Catch them on this record; it's their finest. From the the stompimg "kids are back" to the anthemic "I am and I'm me" to the blistering "you can't stop rock and roll" this album never lets up.
When I replaced my vinyl with this CD version, friends laughed, but hey, sometimes you just need Twisted F**kin' Sister!

While their debut record was hard, lo-fi punk rock, by the time of "You Can't Stop Rock 'n' Roll" they had cleaned their sound up abit. It was a little poppier possibly but it still contains in my opinion their best collection of tunes. The production is really good, very bass heavy, and Snider is in fine voice. "The Kids Are Back" & "I Am (I'm Me)" were classic singalong anthems, but album tracks such as "We're Gonna Make It" & "I've Had Enough" were equally strong. TS sold out to MTV with "Stay Hungry" in 1984, and turned pop-metal, and although the album Stay Hungry was great, the videos and over exposure were not. They never recovered but pick this up & the debut "Under The Blade" and you have their best 2 efforts.

TWISTED SISTER THE TRANSVESTITES OF ROCK RELEASED THEIR 2ND ALBUM IN 1983 ON ATLANTIC RECORDS AFTER SIGNING THEIR BREAKTHROUG RECORD DEAL WITH THIS MAJOR LABLE. THEIR 1ST ALBUM WAS UNDER THE BLADE RELEASED IN 1982 ON THE INDEPENDENT PUNK LABLE SECRET X9 RECORDS (LATER RELEASED ON ARMOURY)
YOU CAN'T STOP ROCK & ROLL INCLUDES THEIR SMASH HIT YOU CAN'T STOP ROCK & ROLL WHICH HAS A REALLY GOOD VIDEO CLIP TO ACOMPANY IT! UNLIKE KISS - TWISTED SISTER LET YOU SEE THEMSELVES IN STREET CLOTHS WITHOUT MAKE UP. THIS IS A REALLY GOOD SOLID ROCK ALBUM WHICH INCLUDES THE GREAT BALLAD YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
IF YOU BUY YOU CAN'T STOP ROCK & ROLL MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RE-RELEASED VERSION CD ON SPITFIRE RECORDS AS IT CONTAINS 4 EXTRA BONUS STUDIO RECORDINGS .
BUY THIS CD PUT YOUR BLONDE WIG ON / CRACK THE VOLUME UP & SHOW THE NEIGHBOURS THAT YOU REALLY ' CAN'T STOP ROCK & ROLL!
ENJOY!

Buying and playing this album again brought back a lot of great memories, and I'd forgotten just how good this album is. Every track is a winner. Sure, it's not the most intelligent rock music available but then it was never meant to be. If you want high quality, tight, well written, powerful hard rock then this album certainly delivers on all fronts.

Personally this is one of my favourite Twisted Sister albums, and now with the inclusion of 3 great bonus tracks that do not diminish the overall quality at all. I've found myself playing this album again and again, something I haven't done since the 80s.

This is one of those albums where every song is a classic (even the bonus three at the end). Without a doubt the best TS album released. Stay Hungry got all the media hype the following year, and achieved multi platinum status, but to me You Can't Stop... sums up what TS was all about.
