It's a rockin' piece of work for the most part,especially the opening few tracks but the real gems here are the ballads which few bands do so well as Skid Row.......songs like 'Quicksand Jesus',the dark and haunting 'In A Darkened Room' together with 'Wasted Time' all showcase Sebastian Bachs searing vocals and Scotti Hills beautiful guitar solos,overall it's glorious stuff.
This album gets a lot of airplay and rightfully so,it's just great.
The album is a mixture of haevy rock and some increbible power ballads. Singer Sebastian Bach has the best voice in the whole of rock and this is well demonstrated on this album, in reality even though bassist and guitarist Rachel Bolan and Scotti Hill write most of the lyrics, it is Bach who really brings the songs alive. His ability to make the hair on the 'bach' (sorry could'nt resist) of your neck rise on certain songs is something which is very difficult to find. You can see how Bach made the band what it was through listening to the album 'thickskin' (after he had left the band), the great lyrics are there but the band is just a shadow of it's former self.
The album itself is let down by a couple of poor tracks:-
Get the f**k out: is quite imature and doesn't really fit in with other songs on the album.
Physco love:- Don't really know what it is about this song but i just don't like it. It is quite a good song but is nothing compared to what the band can do. (Sounds more suited on thier third album 'subhuman race')
Apart from these the rest of the tracks are awesome. Slave to the grind, in a darkend room,livin on a chain gang and the threat are the best tracks. The part in 'The Threat' where the music stops and Seb screams 'to make me smile pretty for the wrecking ball' is unreal (listen to it you'll know what i mean.
Overall this album is unmissable for anyone who likes thier first album or 80's metal in general. It is also good for those who just like hard rock. Skid row were an incredibly underated band and were one of the best bands from the era (behind guns and roses and possibly Motley Crue).

I was about 5 when this came out and heard tracks on the radio for all this time. Finally bought it and what an album it is!Published on 19 July 2014 by Mr Bumbandstink
When my 15 year old niece was asking to borrow my skid row CD you know they have had a semi-decent musical upbringing! Glad a new generation will get to enjoy it all over again! Read morePublished on 23 July 2013 by Lynda Morgan
I had Skid Row's self entitled 1989 debut album for a while before I decided to buy the second one: 'Slave To The Grind', released two years later. Read morePublished on 25 April 2013 by Brit Boy
It is very raw, it is nasty, it is wilder and less melodic than the first eponymous album. For those who seek a more gentle side to the band, there are of course the rock ballads. Read morePublished on 24 April 2013 by Jiri
Just as good as I remember from my school days! Awesome blast from the past and classic metal rock music with feeling and crunching guitars. Read morePublished on 4 Jan. 2013 by Butch
