Skid Row returns even bigger and badder for their sophomore slaughter-fest.

Taking all the momentum they gained from their vicious debut album, Skid Row does the exact same thing here, blowing up the speakers from the very beginning with the huge riff in "Monkey Business" and the downright colossal title track immediately afterward. "The Threat", my personal favorite on the album, comes next and is followed by a change in pace.

"Quicksand Jesus", "In a Darkened Room", and "Wasted Time" showcase the softer side of Sebastian Bach in the style of their hit single "18 and Life" from the previous album. Of these three, my favorite is "In a Darkened Room" as Bach's voice is simply divine.

This album accentuates the extremes of Skid Row, making the subtler songs more heart-wrenching and the intensities more amplified and epic.
