This is a soundtrack to the only movie Slade made (which by the way for a juke box movie was great). Slade streched out a lot on this record. The opening track "How Does It Feel?" is worth the purchase alone. This band never really broke in North America but a lot of their songs were covered by 80's bands. If you like upbeat rock music. You know stuff like Nazareth you should find this band very interesting if not just plain great. Lemmy from Motörhead once said " you can be the best band in the world but if you are not in the right place at the right at the right time it doesn't matter". This is what I feel happened to Slade in North America ( actually T Rex was the same! Another group huge in the UK and europe but not over here).
This is (in my opinion) their best record. But they have a lot of other great ones. If you want to check them out start with one of these. "In Flame", "Sladed?", " Old New, Borrowed and Blue" or the great two CD "Live" collection. This takes their three live albums plus their famous set at "Reading Festival" in 1980.
"In Flame" is just great rock record that should be in every music lovers collection!

Como estas chickadee Aug. 3 2011
By Kil Roi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Slade "In Flame" is indeed one of the better albums to come out of the 70s. It is, and will remain, in my top 10 of all time. It's a collection of infectious songs that transcends anything this great band ever did.

Why only three stars? Well, when "In Flame" was released in the United States in 1974, it featured two stunning rockers--"Bangin' Man" and "Thanks for the Memory." The album's UK version, which is the only one available now, does not feature those twin jewels, but instead offers "Heaven Knows" and "Summer Song (Wishing You Were Here)." I'm docking it two stars for leaving off "Bangin' Man" and "Thanks for the Memory." They could have at least added them as bonus tracks. For the record, "Bangin' Man" can be found on "Get Yer Boots on: The Best of Slade." "Thanks for the Memory" was put on "Nobody's Fools." Go figure.

I have the US version LP and played it endlessly, learning every note, lyric and snare snap. I saw Slade perform in 1977. Loud, showy and boisterous, they ran through their concert staples, "Gudbuy T' Jane," "Cum on Feel the Noize" and Mama Weer All Crazee Now." And much to my enjoyment, they played quite a few songs off "In Flame," including "Bangin' Man" and "Thanks for the Memory." I can still picture Noddy Holder, bushy red sideburns, silly hat and looking more like a deranged auctioneer than a glam-band frontman, wailing out the near-nonsensical lyrics to "Thanks for the Memory" ... "Como estas chickadee, have a housemaid on your knee ..." while Dave Hill, in platform boots, climbed atop the speaker stacks to play the biting guitar licks in a white follow-spot that made him look so real, yet so otherworldly. My ears rang for three days. The images still linger.

I'm not trying to discourage anyone from buying this classic. The rest of the tracks are glorious, from "Far Far Away" to "OK Yesterday Was Yesterday," to the beautiful "How Does it Feel."

And don't let the cheesy album cover fool you. The foursome does not look good dressed in white with their legs aglow. And that flame logo, well, it looks like a decal peeled off a Hot Wheels car.

But truly, it's what's inside that counts.

A Forgotten Gem from the Glam Rockers May 22 2009
By Best Of All - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is the forgotten gem for Slade, since it ended a dominance on the British pop charts - the first single, How Does It Feel? stalled at #15, ending a string of 12 top four hits - but has a number of very impressive arrangements and solid tracks.

Released in November 1974, the movie soundtrack reached #6 on the UK album chart, while a second single - Far Far Away - peaked at the #2 slot. Produced by Chas Chandler, there is more brass and keyboards than found on prior albums, but the new focus bolsters the artistic vision.

Drummer Don Powell seizes the spotlight on Them Kinda Monkeys Can't Swing and lead vocalist Noddy Holder is in incredible form on O.K. Yesterday Was Yesterday. So Far So Good is truly a classic rocker. A pair of British A-sides replaced Summer Song (Wish You Were Here) and Heaven Knows on the U.S. album, but they appear on this release.

The departure from the formula that brought the band phenomenal success delivered some of their best work, which remains vastly underrated.

Idiot Culture as High Art March 29 2010
By William R. Bettler - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Once again Salvo delivers with a sterling remaster of a classic British rock album. Slade were not content with being the #1 singles band in Britain by 1974. So, in conjunction with their manager, Chas Chandler (former bass player for The Animals and manager of The Jimi Hendrix Experience) they produced their own film with this accompanying soundtrack. The film surprised their fans (and detractors!) with its gritty, realistic approach to working class life in early 1960s Britain. The soundtrack album revealed new depth to the Slade sound, with emphasis on piano, acoustic guitars, and horn arrangements [!], but the gonzo riffs, stupidly singable choruses, and general joie de vivre are still spades! I was especially surprised by how similar the production, and especially Noddy Holder's vocals, are to Alice Cooper's music from the same era. Both Cooper and Slade combine the glam-slam guitar crunch with catchy pop songcraft. If this is your bailiwick, then check out this album. Perhaps it's paradoxical to seek "depth" in the music of Slade (and if you think that's true, you should probably stick with their earlier albums, which are fine examples of the fusion of hard rock and pop); but if you are at all curious, check this one out!

Slademania had hit its peak by the middle of 1974 and like many successful rock bands Slade entered the world of celluloid with their feature film debut `Flame' by the end of that year. Of course a movie needs a soundtrack and `Slade in Flame' was released in November 1974. The album was a departure from the band's recent success as it seemed much more serious with little if any of the gimmicky song misspellings or stompers that signified the band's heyday. Not that `in Flame' doesn't rock in places but opener "How Does it Feel" seems melancholy and retrospective and "Far Far Away" also seems to strike a less than celebratory mood. "So Far So Good", "Them Monkeys", "Lay It Down" (do you think Gene Simmons knows this song??) and "OK Yesterday Was Yesterday" rock convincingly in the Slade tradition but again the mood makes these songs seem like the exceptions rather than the rule. In retrospect, many critics and musicians hail `Slade in Flame' as the band's ultimate triumph but I feel that the bloom had started to come off the rose and evidenced by the lack of single success (though "Far Far Away" did hit No. 2) it seemed that the lean years were just around the corner. Fans will enjoy `in Flame' but I do feel that after `Old New', Slade's salad days were over.
This is a great rock 'n' roll album Nov. 3 2014
By Bassman - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great rock 'n' roll album. Bought the vinyl copy when it first came out and played it to death. Them kinda monkeys can't swing has to be one of the best fast rockers ever. I would say this is their best album but I like all their albums as Slade rocks like nobody else. They are just a brilliant combination of musicians who thankfully found each other and produced great music. This album is definitely up there with some of the best rock albums produced. The remastering really brings this little treasure to life, it's like listening to it for the first time. What's not to like, buy it!
