SKID ROW Revolutions Per Minute
SPV 80001014 (2006)

Continuing on the course started by 2003's 'Thick Skin' album, Skid Row are about to release new album 'Revolutions Per Minute'- a modern sounding album that sits nicely alongside their familiar back catalogue.

Indeed there are a number of tracks that would fit nicely on their earlier albums - 'Nothing', opening track 'Disease', the crunching 'Another Dick In The System' and my favourite track on the album 'Pulling My Heart Out From Under Me'.

There is also an outstanding cover of The Alarm's 'Strength' that is well worth checking out.

With the band sounding fresh and with vocalist Johnny Solinger more than capable of filling Sebastian Bachs boots, the only downside to this album are the 'tongue in cheek' sounding tracks. Whilst 'White Trash' gets away with it and countrified (buts gets louder!!) bonus track 'You Lie' just about getting away with it, there is also the Pogues-like, Celtic sounding 'When God Can't Wait'- I'll think you'll find he can!!
