Genre: Heavy Metal

On their second album, Skid Row (like many other bands during this time) shed all their glam metal influences (like they were many to begin with), and create one of heavy metal's greatest albums on all time, not to mention the first heavy metal album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200.All five members (Sebastian, Rob, Rachel, Scotti, Snake) reach the peek of their careers on this album.The guitars scream, the drums are explosive, the bass thunders, and the vocals are some of the best on any album period.Standouts include the totally underrated ballad "Wasted Time", the metal anthem that is "Riot Act", and my favorite Skid Row song, the balls-to-the-wall title track.

Standout Track:
"Slave To The Grind"
6/28 - Def Leppard/Styx/Tesla
8/29 - Rick Springfield/Loverboy/The Romantics
8/30 - Motley Crue
