1992,a year after metallicas black metal and the grunge revolution was killing metal and heavy rock,i had listened to skid rows debut at least 200 times before this was released and when my parents got it for me i threw it in the tapedeck,yes tapedeck folks,no cd players at this time, and i waited and the opener' monkey business 'blew me away,it seemed heavier and angrier than anything on the self titled debut,i was going mad and screaming,thats how excited i was but nothing prepared me for the next song,that song was the self titled song 'slave to the grind',it just tore me to shreds,it was so heavy and thrasy and so different to the skid row sound,it was just so chaotic,i ran to tell my sister,she didnt care,i knew no other metallers so i was left alone to know that i just heard one of the best songs ever,the entire album doesnt remain in the same heavy tone but it is a classic,i remember dad shouting at me for listening to the song 'get the fxxk out' and i knew i had a special album here,mindblowing,life altering brilliance,we all have albums of our youth ,this is one of mine and i still love it today

How do i write a review for an album that i still scream along to now...10 years on.. in my car!? Its worth the entrance fee just to experience the powerful opening track with a gorjuss intro (stop me if i get over the top) that is "Monkey Business". The groove that is laid down is so infectious and you just get compelled to sing along. The next two songs fly by with some great riffs and outstanding vocals ("Slave to the Grind", "The Threat") and then we come to what i consider to be the best song the Skids have done. "Quicksand Jesus" is what some call a power ballad but the power of the transition from acoustic to electric is so powerful and coupled with Sebastian Bachs' unreal vocal performance and the usual thought provoking lyrics(very evident on the entire album)it creates a memorable song. The album continues on with the good "Psycho Love" and the crazy "Get the F*ck Out" only to be followed by a very groove laiden- "Living on a Chain Gang"..impressive twin guitar solo here. "In a Darkened Room" follows "Creepshow" and is another ballady track with a great guitar melody(repeated by Bach in the song) and more strong vocals. A more pacy "Riot Act" provides some head banging relief before a crunchy "Mudkicker follows it. The album finishes with a tale of grief on "Wasted Time" and rounds off a rollercoaster of an album that i recommend to any self respecting metalhead who appreciates someone who can really sing and prefers songs with melody and deep lyrics.

Skid Row were a band I first heard on the radio with the brilliant rock ballad '18 and life' which seems a lifetime ago now,but I never had any material so decided to give their 1991 album 'Slave To The Grind' a go.
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.

Skid Row's second album has a lot to live up to in order to match the bands debut effort, however this album almost suceeds in doing it. This album is heavier then 'skid row' but it still manages to be quite melodic at the same time (possibly one of the reasons why it is so good).
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).
