The best of all Slade's albums,
By A Customer
This review is from: Slayed (Audio CD)
Slade at their best. From the moment HOW DO YOU RIDE bursts in until FEEL SO FINE ends with the classic Drum smash -SLAYED? is the finest of all their 70's Rock albums. I remember listening to this LP (stolen from my brother's vinyl collection)in my parents front room trying to mimic Noddy's tortured vocals. 20 years later I bought the CD and I was instantly reaching for my Doc Martin's.
GUDBUY T'JANE and MAMA WEER ALL CRAZEE NOW are the singles from the album. The remaining 8 tracks capture Slade at their finest - hand-clapping, boot-stomping, screaming vocals, hard guitars and crashing drums.
Highlights are MOVE OVER , I WON'T LET IT APPEN AGEN and I DON'MIND.
This CD sees a more raw side to Slade before they became the 'good time' band and went for the more POP numbers FAR FAR AWAY, MERRY XMAS,BANGIN MAN etc. If you own the Greatest Hits CD buy this. If you've got the vinyl up in the loft buy this. If you want to listen to 45 minutes of a group who want to entertain buy this - NOW.
