I HADN’T BOUGHT A SKID ROW ALBUM SINCE 1992′S B-SIDES OURSELVES WHEN I PICKED UP 1998′S 40 SEASONS-THE BEST OF SKID ROW. I gave a listen to the songs from Subhuman Race(an album I had been told was bad. Follow yourselves people) and i was so impressed i bought the album the same day. WOW. Heavier which may upset the “I Remember You” crowd but this album is amazing. Lyrically, a major progression has taken place. Songs like “Frozen” and “Firesign” are great examples of that lyricism at work. “Breakin’ Down” a song written by “Snake” Sabo should satisfy the ballad crowd as should “Eileen”. The album is a bit of a departure for the band but is still down and dirty rock and roll, just like when the band started. Rock on MOTHER TRUCKERS!
