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.
