Editorial Reviews

One of the last great metal hair bands to have major mainstream success, Skid Row was formed in the late '80s by former Bon Jovi guitarist Dave Snake Sabo and bassist Rachel Bolan. With flamboyant, photogenic and controversial frontman Sebastian Bach on lead vocals, the group had a breakthrough smash with 1989's 18 And Life, a #4 Billboardr single. The same year, I Remember You hit #6, and the video for Youth Gone Wild would soon become an MTV sensation.

When it comes to Greatest Hits albums, there are many that seem to fall short of capturing the essence of the band and what it is they accomplished. In the case of "40 Seasons: The Best of Skid Row," while it too is not perfect, it comes very close.

1. Youth Gone Wild - This is how to begin an album! Heavy guitars, powerful vocals, and a message that being a youth is all in your heart and you CAN stay young forever! A true rocking anthem that will have you banging your head with madness! 5/5

2. 18 and Life - many people may know this song very well. One of the bands biggest and best hits. A great song with a great, dark and sad story. Seems to be a bit of Ricky inside us all! 4/5

3. Piece of Me - Right back into the heavy rocking non-stop action that we know Skid Row for. I wasn't a big fan of this song at first but it does grow on you. Great song when performed live as well. 4/5

4. I Remember You - This is usually the song that everyone knows and associates Skid Row with. The ballad of the album, the band, and perhaps even the ballad of the decade! The vocals are strong yet peaceful, and the guitar work is perfectly matched with the harmony of the tune as well. 4.5/5

5. The Threat - This song I find to be very much like "Piece of Me." Again this is a song that didn't grab me right away but has grown on me with time. Hard and heavy hitting off the heels of the ballad. 4/5

6. Psycho Love - Again, might take a couple of listens to really enjoy, but this definetly is a pretty rocking song! Powerful vocals and awesome guitar work by the man Rachael Bolan! In the linear notes the band states they are still waiting for a movie to be made from this song! Pretty cool idea! 4/5

Skid Row was one of the most talented "hair" bands to come out of the late 80's. They stuck around til the mid 90's and they still have quite a following, with Sebastian Bach's new role on Broadway and solo projects.
With that said, this album is sadly missing perhaps Skid Row's best 2 songs of all-time, in "Wasted Time" and "In a Darkened Room". Why they left these two tracks off is beyond me. Instead, they put a terrible "Beat Yourself Blind (LIVE)" and a mediocre at best "Psycho Love" in their place.
I liked the fact that they threw a few unreleased tracks on there, but to leave off "Wasted Time" and "In a Darkened Room" was the ultimate of sins. In my opinion, here were Skid Row's greatest Hits:
1. Youth Gone Wild 2. 18 and Life 3. I Remember You 4. Midnight/Tornado 5. Monkey Business 6. Quicksand Jesus 7. In a Darkened Room 8. Wasted Time 9. Firesign 10. Eileen 11. Into Another 12. Breakin' Down 13. Psycho Therapy
No need for any other songs, because none of their others are "greatest hits" worthy. They had some other good songs, but these should undoubedly be on the album. In addition to the two songs they left off that was ridiculous, they should have also included "Midnight/Tornado", "Firesign", "Eileen", and maybe "Psycho Therapy" (I liked it).
By leaving off so many key songs, I can't give this album more than three stars.

This is definitely an excellent compilation of Skid Row's best hits, but I don't understand how they (apparently Rachel Bolan) could have left off "Wasted Time". Perhaps it is just personal preference or my own taste, but that is my favorite Skid Row song. It's a hard-rocking song that tugs at you like a ballad. It was a big mistake leaving this off of the album!

I've just recently bought this, along with Dokken very best, and I choose to review them at the same time because they have a couple of things in common, some different things, and certainly, different impact on listener. First of all, I have to say that I was a MAJOR fan of Skid Row (i no longer support their updated, Bach-less line-up), so I have all their records and like them all (even if Slave To the Grind remains not only my favorite, but also one of my top 10 favorites altogether). So I HAD to have this compilation. After a week of continuous listening, here are my observations, itemized, of course:

-"Best of" vs "Greatest Hits": even thought most record label execs are brainless enough not to know the difference between the 2 (other than semantics), the fact remains that both are different: a "best of" includes the band's favorites, a "greatest" includes whatever hits they had on the radio. On that regard, "40 Seasons" lies closer to a greatest hits.

-Running order(chronological vs. impact): this compilation is horrible in that respect. Records, whether they are live, studio or compilations, MUST have a running order that grabs the listener by the throat. Dokken's is brilliant! This one is horrible: even if i love "Youth Gone Wild", it is not an opening song! Not only that, but that song was THE closing song on a nightly basis during the band's career! It is almost blasphemy!! And to follow that with "18 and life"...c'mon, give me a break! This compilation should have had a random, impact based running order, and "My Enemy" or "Monkey Business" should've been the opening songs...
