After a truly solid debut from Skid Row, one would ask, how could we expect them to top this? Yet they did.

All aspects of the band have stepped up a notch in this album, becoming more intense; less rock and more metal! The entire atmosphere is made more dynamic from the get-go. The intro to the opening track "Monkey Business" has a quiet bluesy riff with quiet vocals that give the impression that the album ahead is going to be weak - but out of nowhere Bach unleashes a scream that breaks into a full-on hard rock anthem, setting off the intensity that barely lets down for the next 45 minutes. Just as soon as you catch your breath after the intro track, a very thrashy title track kicks in with just as much blistering intensity.

What a mess of a post!
By the way, the three ballads of this album are great and I dislike power ballads these days, the exceptions are few.

I'd say it's harder than most of glam metal, wouldnt call this exactly Glam... more like Hard'n Heavy

Rating: 9 This album definitely has nothing to do with glam or hair metal. The debut did, but not this one!

Rating: 9 Damn I love this album! Superb heavy metal. And Wasted Time is probably up there as one of my top 10 songs of all time.

Ah, beautiful ballad that one! I always tear up when I hear that song, it's just amazing. Definitely one of my fave ballads of all time.
