Skid Row’s “Slave to the Grind” is SKID ROW at their best! On this album the band was clearly working together as a unit, and the styles of the various songs are diverse as the personalities that formed this incredible band. Sebastian Bach once again used his impressive voice to deliver the goods. Overall, the sound on this album is more aggressive than SKID ROW’S first effort. At times the lyrics seemed to focus more on negativity than rebellion. Still, overall, the album deserves a place in every collection. I know it will always be high on the “play list” in my own collection. Any fan of Sebastian Bach’s vocals will especially appreciate this album since now, ten years later, they can listen to his first solo effort and hear him sing six of the songs from this album again, live, and better than ever.
