Review Type: 

Skid Row is an American Hard rock/metal band, and was formed in 1986 in New Jersey. They were very successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their first three multi-platinum albums. In their years of greatest success the band consisted of Sebastian Bach (vocals), Dave Sabo (guitar), Scotti Hill (guitar), Rachel Bolan (bass) and Rob Affuso (drums). As of 2010, the band consists of Sabo, Hill, Bolan, Johnny Solinger (vocals), and Rob Hammersmith (drums). At the end of 1996 the band had sold 20 million albums worldwide

To date, Skid Row has released five full-length albums, an EP, a compilation album, and a live album. They became popular with their first two albums witch are often considered their best-known works to date. But unfortunately everything they released after the year 2000 didn’t do what is was supposed to do.

Now after 7 years of absence, the band is back with an album that does do what its supposed to do. But wait there is more, this record actually is made up out of 3 parts (chapters) this being the first and the other parts will be released over the year. So yes this record is a rather short one. Apart from that, it rocks. It’s so good that it’s over before you know it and you find yourself putting the album on repeat.
