Product Description


Influenced by New York punk bands like the Ramones and Dictators, as well as by traditional heavy metal ensembles, Twisted Sister created brash, simple songs that buzzed with subversive energy, giving the band the appeal of bad-boy cartoon characters. Their third album, Stay Hungry, featured the classic rebel anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It" as well as more uptempo tracks like "Burn in Hell" and "S.M.F." (which, in true metal fashion, stands for "Sick Motherfucker"). No one disputes Twisted Sister's competence level. Simply put, they couldn't play well enough to save their five-year recording career, but frontman Dee Snider's outrageous stage presence and accidentally hilarious lyrics ensured that their time in the limelight was thoroughly entertaining. --Jon Wiederhorn

Man has it really been 25 years? I can't -- no, I don't want to believe it! Yet it must be, since now there's a 25th anniversary edition. For whatever reason (legal, contractual?) when Twisted issued their series of remasters with bonus tracks back in 1997, Stay Hungry was not one of them. Then in 2004 the reunited band recorded an album called STILL Hungry, which was the entire disc re-recorded "the way they originally wanted it to sound". As a fan, I enjoyed it mostly for the new and unreleased bonus tracks, but was underwhelmed by the re-recording. It's impossible to exactly duplicate a song, especially when the singer can no longer hit the high notes in "The Price".

That was then, this is now, and Stay Hungry has finally been remastered and beefed up with a bonus disc of all unreleased material and one brand new song! (None of these unreleased songs were even heard on Still Hungry, either, but a couple were done by Dee on a recent solo album.) The album itself remains one of Sister's best (although my preference is to You Can't Stop Rock N' Roll) and the bonus disc sheds light on what the band was writing at the time.

The remastering and liner notes are excellent. The album sounds like it should, the way a pristine vinyl copy would sound back then. The liner notes reveal friction between the band and producer Tom Werman. Werman rejected a lot of what the band had written which makes up disc two. However, he was also a big supporter of their heavier songs such as "Burn In Hell" and "Horror-Teria: The Beginning", while disliking "We're Not Gonna Take It". Dee Snider, in fact, wanted to save "Horror-Teria" for a rock opera he was composing, but Werman wisely insisted it go on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars We're right, yeah... July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Many a Metal fan in the 1980s would tell anyone who would listen that all Glam Metal was for poseurs and any one of hundreds of different synonyms for homosexual. Glam Metal was for poodle haired cross dressers more interested in make up and picking up chicks than making music with any redeeming value whatsoever. By and large, this was true. Witness for example the excesses of Motley Crue, the effete foppery of Poison, the commercialised Pop/Rock of Bon Jovi, and the failings of any one of a number of other bands, like Faster Pussycat, Tiger Tailz, LA Guns, Bang Tango, Great White, Ratt, ad infinitum.
Occasionally though, a Glam Metal band managed to produce an album masculine enough to appeal to True Metal fans. WASP managed it with two or three albums, and Motley Crue almost achieved it with the rough and ready "Girls Girls Girls". "Stay Hungry" by Twisted Sister was another of these albums, and by far and away the most successful.
Pre-dating the decadence of the LA Glam Metal scene by a good few years, Twisted Sister moulded the hard rocking theatrics of Kiss and Alice Cooper to their own shape. While many bands forgot to learn the basics, like playing instruments and writing songs, with Twisted Sister, the music always came first. The outrageous image was merely a marketing tool. Iron Maiden were also wearing multi-coloured Spandex in 1984, and no one was questioning their musical validity.
"Stay Hungry" will always be best remembered for the two huge singles it spawned, and their hilarious accompanying videos. 'We're Not Gonna Take It' and 'I Wanna Rock' are both lowest common denominator shout along anthems of simplistic teen rebellion at it's basest level, but damn it, they are just so addictive, and the fun factor negates their obvious commercial intentions.

Twisted Sister's third effort, 1984's Stay Hungry is famous for being home to the band's two biggest hits namely "I Wanna Rock" and "Were Not Gonna Take It". Those two songs are classics yes, but one would be foolish to overlook Stay Hungry thinking only those two songs are worth the price of admission. Truth is I think they're not even the album's best songs but they are catchy (and MTV heavily rotating the videos for those songs helped Twisted Sister gain popularity) and still played today on the radio and in sporting events. I have to give credit to Dee and the guys; there is not a bad song on Stay Hungry and even the album's only ballad "The Price" rocks. Twisted Sister were heavier in their pre-MTV hits days with their first album Under The Blade but Stay Hungry has teeth and isn't what one would call a "soft" record. 20 years after this album's release, 2004 saw the band re-recording Stay Hungry in its entirety but in my opinion the original is still where its at.

"Stay Hungry" the title track is a heavy rocker that starts off the album with a bang, it's heavier than one would expect for Twisted Sister and there is nothing wrong with that. Next up we have the popular single "We're Not Gonna Take It", a strong youthful anthem on rebellion that I'm sure you've heard before or perhaps are familiar with. Perhaps a bit overplayed but still a great song on a topic that never gets old, pure Rock'N'Roll. This song also had a very memorable video. I must admit the first time I heard "Burn In Hell" it shocked me. I bought Stay Hungry thinking it was going to be full of anthems like "We're Not Gonna Take It", I was impressed at the sheer heaviness of this song. I think the breakdown part in which Dee sings "Hear no evil/don't you see no evil/ don't you lay no evil down on me..." is brilliant.
