Biography

Skid Row were one of the very last hair metal bands to hit the mainstream before grunge took over in the early '90s. While the band's self-titled debut employed standard pop-metal riffs and generic lyrics (albeit to great commercial success), 1991's Slave to the Grind and 1995's Subhuman Race broke away from the pop-metal mold with uncharacteristically hard, thrashy guitars and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Believe it or not, the new Skid Row rocks!! February 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Erase all your past memories of Skid Row because this is the "New Generation" as exclaimed by Solinger and company on the opening track. The song is propelled by a Marilyn Manson style riff. The industrial riffs are abandoned quickly, as "Ghost" is classic Skid Row metal. It's loaded with catchy hooks and a memorable chorus. The group proves that haven't lost a step when it comes to songwriting either. "Born a Beggar" starts off with a great twangy guitar intro, as the deep vocals of Solinger describe one's devotion to their significant other. The group goes in the opposite lyrical direction on "See You Around", a moving power ballad about breaking up. The chunky guitars of "Thick is the Skin" boast more of the updated sound, as does "Mouth of Voodoo". "Lamb" has a wicked baseline and a distinguished chorus. I'd be doing you a disservice if I didn't tell you how the remake of "I'll Remember You" is. The new up-beat tempo is better than the previous, but after hearing both versions, Bach's vocals would have been better.
Bottom Line:
Thickskin is one of my favorites of this year. It's heavy, the songs are well written, and the guitar hooks are memorable, and radio friendly. The band manages to keep their classic sound, but updates it to stay fresh. However, I don't think of Skid Row when I listen to this CD. I'm sure they needed the name to help promote it, but the music really stands on it's own. If the name Skid Row wasn't used on this album, I think the music would be able to tear up the rock radio charts. I can't believe the rock friendly record labels passed on this.

5.0 out of 5 stars fresh, but still skid row March 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is great, Rather than try and rehash an old formula just to sell records, Snake and the boys came up with a fresh new aproach that should still keep the die hards happy. From the first track "New Generation" you know what to expect. Heavy and energetic rock is back. No the singer is not Sebastian, But he is very talented in his own right. As was the case before, the song writing is what carries Skid Row. If bands never evolve, eventually they put out boring material. This is not boring at all. Buy this album! You wont regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesomw Awesome Album!!! January 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
You will not be dissapointed in this release by the new SKID ROW!

I am 42 years old, a former rock club DJ and part time WCMF radio DJ from the 80's.

I was there when metal oriented rock ruled the world, and it's unfortunate that today's crap is what's being forced down our throats. It's also unfortunate that this album isn't gettin' any attention.

I'm not kiddin' you when I say that this album is one of the best albums I have ever heard.

Yeah SKID ROW when they came out were great... Bach on vocals was perfect..... Yeah, yeah, yeah....

Solinger does an awsome job, and have you heard Bach lately? He's lost it!

Every song on this album rocks from start to finish, and would get airplay on my radio station... if and when I win that LOTTO!

I was a friend of Newburgh, NY's own Rob Affuso... but hearing Phil Varrone on drums doesn't make me miss Rob at all.

The song writing of Rachel Bolan & Snake Sabo along with Scotti Hill on the heavy-rockin "Hittin' the Wall" are great... simply great! Johnny Solinger helped out in writing "Mouth of Voodoo", and a couple of outside writers helped out in a couple of other tunes.

The boys are in the studio right now workin' on their follow-up to Thick Skin. I only hope that they now get some major label attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Success Without Sebastion? Maybe... September 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well lets see, Sebastian Bach, the front man that most of us 30 something people recognize. He was the voice behind one of the best hard rock bands in the late 80s. Most people forgot about them as grunge took over, even when they released Subhuman Race in the early 90s. I for one never forget. And what I also do is keep on open mind when one of my favorite bands decide to do a little changing of the order. Sebastian has moved on to other things. He still makes music and has appeared on Broadway in the lead of Jeckly and Hyde if I'm not mistaken. The rest of the band was not ready to call it quits. I can't blame them, when you love music and you have a passion for it, you can't stop. I'm a singer; I know those feelings.
Anyhow, when a band changes, some people are not ready to accept them as the same. Some people don't even want to really give the new project a chance. I've read some reviews so far, and the album is being ripped more than appreciated. I'm here to tell you, I appreciate it. I didn't look at who is the new singer just yet for I listened to the CD in a store on the way out. I was pleasantly surprised. Sure it's not Bach, but you know what? He was the front man of yesterday. Today is a new day, and the stlye of music has changed. It's become heavier, harder, deeper, and sometimes darker. I feel the boys of Skid Row have done a phenominal job at mixing in with todays artists and groups. Will they get radio play? Come on, Unless you're Bon Jovi or Poison and this is a pop station, no. They are Skid Row, they are 80's, and they will probably not be given a chance to show today's generation that they can still rock. Perhaps they should have changed their name instead. It doesn't matter.
