Product Description


Skid Row distinguished themselves from the legions of pop-metal bands of the late '80s and early '90s chiefly by their attitude, which was closer to Guns N' Roses than to Bon Jovi. They're also distinctive these days, mainly because they're still around. Though their debut is the most radio-friendly and least musically mature of their albums, it does have some excellent songs on it, including the slow but edgy "18 and Life" and the anthem (every metal album must have one) "Youth Gone Wild". Musical talent and vocalist Sebastian Bach's over-the-top delivery made this band stand out from the crowd, although these days the material on this album does sound dated. -- Genevieve Williams

4.0 out of 5 stars I Remember You Skid Row! March 15 2010
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Skid Row was never one of my favorite bands but I always liked their music and particularly their 1989 self-titled debut album. It's a collection of strong ballads, heavy and rocking songs with great energy, I wish they could still do this. It has this kind of energy only musicians their age (on this album) can have and that's why it's so good. As another reviewer said, it really is youth captured on "Skid Row". Their moment of fame didn't last long after this album sadly but I still enjoy listening to this one frequently even today.

I love Sebastian Bach's vocals, I feel he has one of the best voices in his genre and he is underrated. The guitars have a great rocking sound to them and make this album much edgier and give it much more attitude than the average hair band did. They certainly have fun songs but they are heavier than usual, that's the thing about skid row. Here Skid Row made rocking songs, heavy songs and I must say excellent ballads. "18 and Life" and "I Remember You" are two of my all time favorite ballads, there is just so much passion in them. Some songs found here may sound cheesy today, particularly "Can't Stand the Heartache" and "Rattlesnake Shake" but others like the hard-rocking "Big Guns" and the anthem "Youth Gone Wild" kept me rocking to this album. There are also some underrated ones like "Here I Am" and "Midnight Tornado" who deserve a listen.These songs captured the feeling of an era and bring back great memories to many.

If you're a new fan or a just curious about Skid Row, their first and self-titled album is the one to get. I would favor this over a greatest hits album, pretty much all the songs are great and this was the band's heyday.

By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Besides Warrant's Cherry Pie, Motley Crue's Dr. Feelgood, Guns N' Roses Use Your Illusion I and II and Metallica's the Black Album, this was one of the best hair metal albums released in 1989. Skid Row produced a powerful song in 18 & Life and the ballad, I Remember You is a classic power ballad. When I think of power ballads- Skid Row's I Remember You comes to mind. It is one of the best power ballads to be released. 18 & Life is the best Skid Row song. It had always been my favorite. Youth Gone Wild is a great anthem for the youth in the late 80s and it is no surprise that they used this for the follow-up, Slave to the Grind.

This is the best album from Skid Row.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent debut album June 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Skid Row (1989.) Skid Row's debut album.
In the eighties, there were a number of excellent hard rock and heavy metal bands that emerged in the United States, but sadly, only a few of them got the proper recognition. Although Skid Row was, indeed, an excellent band, they never really got the proper recognition they deserved, because they arrived on the scene so late in the eighties metal movement. Still, the band achieved moderate popularity, and their most popular album remains their 1989 self-titled debut. How does this album measure up? Read on and find out.
Let me start this review my saying that, while they were an eighties metal band, they were NOT one of the many glam/hair bands that pretty much dominated the genre. These guys were much closer to, say, Guns 'N' Roses or Motley Crue. They were a HEAVY heavy metal band, plain and simple. Hard and heavy is the way metal was meant to be played, and these guys demonstrate that point a number of times on the album. The big hits here are the hard rock anthem Youth Gone Wild, and the semi-melodic rocker 18 And Life. These two tracks would become extremely popular, and why not? But, it doesn't just stop with the hits. There are a number of rockers exploring a plethora of styles, and every one does its job excellently. And, as with just about any eighties metal album, there are even a few power ballads. In the end, this is widely varied and excellent heavy metal album.
Currently in America (as of June 8, 2004) the only version of this album that is readily available is the original CD issue. It's good that the album is still readily available, but I think it could use a rerelease. The sound could use some remastering, and some bonus tracks and expanded liner notes would be cool. Let's hope such a reissue takes place, eventually.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of the Best Hair Metal Albums Ever May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first time that I heard Skid Row was when i was downloading music that I though my brother would hate onto his computer. The first time that I heard 18 and Life to Go and I Remember You I fell in love with Sebastian Bach's vocal delivery. I continued listening to these two songs until I decided that I needed to get the actual album. I got the CD and found that the rest of the songs were just as good as the two songs that got me into the band in the first place.
Basically this album does have some superfluos filler materail but it is overall a very worthy album. This album features some very formidable guitar solos and superb song arrangements. Even when a song has inane lyrics it is still listenable because the musicianship is very good. Furthermore this is one of the less cheesy hair metal albums. On it is none of that Cherry Pie or Every Rose has it thorn Crap: only powerful rock music.
