|This band sounds similar to TYKETTO. Not as good, mind you, but the resemblence is there. You could insert a photo of this band next to the word "average" in the dictionary. It's banal without being bad, mediocre with being a mess, formulaic without being a flop. In other words, you won't play this CD too often, but when you do play it, it's not so terrible that you consider sticking bamboo slivers under your fingernails to take your mind off the agony in your ears...

|Bueno, no estan mal, yo les daria una oportunidad, pues sin duda intentaron mantener viva la llama d los 80', y eso se nota en las composiciones, quizas recuerden un poco a los LITTLE ANGELS,pero tiene temas q enganchan, y eso ya es algo. un 6 d 10

|This is a fine album, hardly a bad track on it they went on to make another great album called lucky but then started to dabble with grunge. Yeah if you like tyketto you'll like this. 'Tower of strength' is an all time favourite of mine

|I bought the limited edition version with a bonus CD & it just rocks. Shame the band changed styles so rapidly,they had something good going but totally blew it with a grungier sound that nobody bought into!

|Great album - Tyketto meets Thunder I'd say. Neville Macdonald has a great bluesy soulful voice and the songs are full of as much emotion as they are kickass classic rock. It's just great song after great song, each filled with an element that'll make you rewind it infront of your friends and go "just listen to that bit... awesome!". Just NEVER EVER buy anything that came out after this CD, they abandoned their style and talent after this... and Neville forgot how to sing.

|WOW!!! I'm sold with just two words in the above comments....TYKETTO AND THUNDER......two of my favorites!! Is this thing hard to get hold of, or fairly common??

|I just got this..and I have to say.....WOW!!!! I have a new CD to add to my list of favorites!!! This is GREAT!!! Ok.....I hear the Thunder references.. not so much the Tyketto... "Look But Don't Touch" (to me) sounds a whole lot like Mr.Big. All around.....NOT a bad song on this.....these vocals are damn near perfection.....to me!!!!!

|Glad you like it MJ. My girl gave me the album ages ago going "you're gonna love these guys" and sure enough I did, an absolutely stunning album; a lost classic released just WAY too late... Colour Blind is probably my favorite on the album, but the whole thing is stunning. It's such a shame Neville MacDonald threw his voice in the toilet after this and later on even used distortion on it. After 'Skin' they sucked to hell, don't even bother, just love & enjoy the album you've got!

|bueno, como he sido seguidor suyo del primero al último album solo puedo decir que son los más mejores (para mi), solo comparables a los Thunder en sus primeros años. A diferencia de Thunder, que fue suavizando su estilo con el tiempo, a Skin le pasó lo contrario: sus discos son progresivamente más duros. Un 10 de 10.

|For those interested the bonus CD version includes the tracks Unbelieveable (EMF cover),Pump it up (Elvis Costello cover),Hangin on the telephone (Blondie cover),Express yourself (Madonna cover),Funktified,Monkey,Should I stay or should I go (Clash cover),Dog eat dog (Adam Ant cover),Down Down Down,Good good lovin. Well worth finding just for the cover songs!

|Thanks to CC for the info on the bonus tracks.This is the band's best release and I was sorry that they did not continue playing melodic rock instead of the horrible grunge flavoured stuff on their later cds.This is an above average album which could have done with a few more hard rock songs.Check out Myke and Andy's other BRILLIANT band JAGGED EDGE.One of the greatest British bands of all time in my humble opinion.

|Saw Skin live a couple of times - blew my mind away. Such a shame they split up. Neville's voice totally rocks!

|Where were people like you when I tried to see this on ebay???!!! Oh well, it's gone now (for about usd$3.00) and I'm happy enough. I guess there are people out there who like this, but for me it was clear that Matti Alfonzetti bought the melodic edge to Jagged Edge, and Mike Gray bought the bluesy (boring?) edge. This is good if you like standard hard rock. To me, it's boring and lacks hooks or memorable moments. Just me, I guess.

|Terrible album este de SKIN, por cierto el mejor de su carrera por varios cuerpos, Neville MacDonald canta en este disco como si tuviese que dejar la vida en ello, esto es cantar con huevos! Sin necesidad de gritar o hacerse el malo. "House of Love" "Look but Don't Touch" y la bellísima balada "Which Are the Tears" son los temas sobresalientes aunque el resto del disco no baja el nivel en ningun momento. Cómpralo o te faltara una pieza importántisima del hard rock inglés!

|It's a shame this band never lived up to it's full potential, as this album comes closest to demonstrating what could have been. By far their best disc, everything following was an attempt at "relevancy" of the times (late '90s) by incorporating more Grunge/Alternative elements. Here they're delivering a hard-edged '80s radio rock with slight blues tinges. The band are all quite capable, especially guitarist Myke Gray (Jagged Edge) and drummer Dicki Fliszar (Bruce Dickinson). But the shining diamond here is Nev McDonald, a truly great and under-appreciated rock vocalist -- under better circumstances the guy should have been a star. (Check out "Colourblind" for one of the best rock vocal performances of all time.) It's just too bad he didn't have better material to work with overall. "House of Love," "Colourblind," and "Money" are the exceptions, with the stand-out tune being the catchy "Look But Don't Touch," which would have been massive had it come out ten years earlier. Otherwise th

|(con't): Otherwise the songs are pretty predictable/forgettable -- outside songwriting help might have perked things up a bit. Sadly, from here things didn't get any better, with only touches of bright moments throughout the remainder of their catalogue. Still, anyone who appreciates a great rock vocalist owes it to themself to seek out this album for Nev's performance alone. Nev: 100/100 -- Album: 70/100

|the singer is excellent he have a big mouth, the songs are great but not at my taste.this album sound too bluesy for me.the sound of the guitars (after several spins) is really boring too blues not many hard.not my cup of tea.

|Very good indeed. Bluesy hard rock with an excellent singer and very well-produced songs. Something for those who like early Whitesnake, Rockhead, Gotthard, Beggars & Thieves or some bands mentioned above (Jagged Edge...). 90/100.

|explosive debut for SKIN and among the best hard rock albums of the 90s!massive production by Keith ,a sweet blusy hard rock sound with a strong commercial edge and big songs with no fillers for an album that became easily an all time fav in my book!a classic of the genre
