From: Rycheage Date: September 18, 2001 at 19:46
Competent follow-up to "Stick It To Ya". "Reach For The Sky", "The Wild Life", and both versions of "Days Gone By" highlight this disc. I would recommend it because it can be bought cheap on eBay.

From: dariosapi Date: January 10, 2002 at 10:57
"Real love" - the best song I've ever heard!!

From: dokken6008 Date: April 8, 2002 at 11:57
Of course 'The Wild Life' sure as hell doesn't amount up to Slaughter's first record but it is--as best put by Rycheage--a "COMPETENT follow-up". There is enough here to keep the listener interested. And yes, you can buy 'TWL' DIRT-cheap no matter where you go. My old man got me mine for three bucks.

From: Tony Date: April 11, 2002 at 4:21
Sorry man but I can't think of this album without thinking of the video for "Real Love" which just might be the WORST hair band video of all time and the fact someone didn't serve jail time for foisting that thing on the American public is a injustice that can never be fixed. That being said this album is extremely mediocore and hey I dig these guys.

From: ted Date: April 12, 2002 at 17:56
gran cd de hard rock americano con unos temas impecables quizá el mejor disco de mark slaughter y compañía

From: TIM Date: June 1, 2002 at 13:03
It's not their best, but it's worth getting for a few songs like Rycheage said.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 1, 2002 at 13:31
I really liked this album. Its rockin striaght-forward rock music, with a little filler but overall a solid album from these guys. These guys are animals, you can tell from just listening to this album.

From: Baris Date: September 16, 2002 at 5:08
A more balanced follow-up. This is not so impressive as "Stick It To Ya" but quite satisfied me also. A very nice intro by "Reach For The Sky" and other songs rock well enough. There are also good power ballads here as in the first. So although not being a "Stick It To Ya" I liked this album because it's just a Slaughter thing.

From: nitrodoll Date: September 19, 2002 at 6:41
i was in highschool when this came out...not all songs are great but it has its moments of glory.. i do remember the video for 'real love' with this beautiful girl from beverly hills 900210 in it... wish i could see it again.. nitrodoll the song 'move to the music" was also used by the semi japanese band vow wow.. c ya

From: robert Date: October 20, 2002 at 15:11
este es mi favorito d ellos, gracias a temazos como:REAL LOVE, STREETS OF BROKEN HEARTS, DAYS GONE BY, son temas increibles y alucinantes, llenos de garra, pasion y otras cosas, un pedazo de disco ya lo creo...

From: JT Date: April 28, 2003 at 8:23
This has one of my favs of all time with Days Gone By...other than that it is one of the best Slaughter albums of all times. I would recommend this CD to anyone who is a fan of rock music

From: Rocker65 Date: May 6, 2003 at 18:23
Real Love is realy great - it is intersting how can one song hat is so simple be so great. Now that's genius!! But It Wouldn't be so great if there weren't Mark Slauhter ;>

From: Reno Date: May 17, 2003 at 9:28
Capitol Records is re-releasing the first 2 Vinnie Vincent Invasion and first 2 Slaughter albums with new linear notes by Dana Strum and bonus tracks. They'll be out June 24th, 2003

From: visitor Date: August 24, 2003 at 14:27
One word - versatility! So many different kinds of songs on this album. Hard rockers like Reach for the Sky, the title track & Shake This Place. Party tracks like Dance for me Baby & Move to the Music. Medium-pace songs like Days Gone By, Streets of Broken Hearts & Real Love (yes, that is such a great song!). And Old Man - well, that´s just fun! I love this album for all the diversity it offers!

From: Rocker76 Date: November 20, 2003 at 15:40
Overall this is a great follow-up to "Stick It To Ya". Good consistent hard rock. Mark Slaughter has a great voice and Tim Kelly's guitar work continues to be killer. Real Love, Days Gone By, and The Wild Life are stand-out tracks. Like everyone else has said, you can find this cheap on Ebay or a used music store. You can't go wrong with this one. A great investment if you're into melodic hard rock!

From: Big Mike Date: April 7, 2004 at 16:11
This is one of their best albums along with "Fear no Evil". much better than their first album for mine. Good songs and no filler insight which unfortuately became standard on their albums after this. Snaffle a copy.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 3:36
I like this one more than "Stick It To Ya". The band adds some, dare I say it, Queen influences, especially on the ballads like "Days Gone By". Like the first album, there is some filler toward the end, but an enjoyable first half salvages the album. 6/10

From: Lucas Date: August 2, 2004 at 16:33
Si hay algo que hay que destacar de Slaughter es que en TODA su discografía mantiene un excelente nivel de profesionalidad. "The Wild Life" mantiene un sonido impecable, “Reach For The Sky” es una canción bien completa con muy buenos arreglos, “The Wild Life” tema que le da nombre al CD, es otro verdadero hit, “Days Gone By” es un soft ideal para tardes de lluvia, donde la banda baja sus decídeles eléctricos y se ponen románticos. Slaughter logró incluirse en la oleada del Hair Metal en su mejor

From: Lucas Date: August 2, 2004 at 16:35
mejor momento, y este disco a pesar que ya salió en el 92’ donde el Glam fue dejado de lado por el negocio musical, escaló con buenas posiciones en los charts de Billboard con el hit “Real Love”,el cual incluye en esta nueva edición una versión demo.Esta nuevo lanzamiento esta remasterizado,también viene incluido“Perfect World”,tema que solo se adjuntó al lanzamiento internacional. Su libro incluye una gran cantidad de fotos y datos.lhgordo@yahoo.com http://personales.ciudad.com.ar/rokkker

From: Geoff Date: September 14, 2004 at 2:36
Not as good as the debut, IMO, but a very good CD anyway.'Days gone by' is a beautiful ballad, 'Times They Change' is a killer rocker, 'Real Love' is a melodic gem, 'Streets of Broken Hearts' is an awesome pop rocker, 'Hold On' is cool hard rock too, and my fave 'Do Ya Know' is great too. Actually, when I look at it like that it's nowhere NEAR as good as the debut, but still a very good album. A few fillers though...

From: run2u Date: November 1, 2004 at 18:25
BASURA.Entendedme,el sonido es sobresaliente(como en casi todos los episodios de la era hard rock USA),y gente como Mark Slaughter o Dana Strum son músicos experimentados que saben hacer cosas competentes,pero...esto no funciona ni por asumo.Canciones sin gancho ni talento ni virtuosismos,voz chillona rozando el ridículo,sensación de"vacío"total.En fin,si te gusta este estilo debes tenerlo y darle una oportunidad(yo lo hice),pero no es un valor seguro ni mucho menos. 3'5/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: Hairball John Date: November 26, 2004 at 21:49
I would play the song "Wild Life" during every show if I could. It absolutely rocks. FYI: There is an audio interview available with Mark Slaughter that was conducted for The Hairball John Radio Show from mid 2003 at www.hairballjohn.com Listen to The Hairball John Radio show each week for lost classics, artist interviews and new releases. www.hairballjohn.com - the past is back to kick your ass!

From: C.J. Scheck Date: December 31, 2004 at 12:08
Nitrodoll I was also in high school when this came out!! One of the first times I ever skiped school was the day this tape came out. Those was the days! I will always LOVE this cd!! saltydog419@webtv.net

From: luis Date: January 28, 2005 at 10:40
i dont like this record , only the song "real love" stands out , glad it was cheap on Ebay .Stick to ya is a much better record.

From: Lovedrive Date: May 24, 2005 at 8:41
No me apasionan Slaughter, pero cuando le pillas el "truco" a la voz, engancha que no veas. Este es mi favorito, y el anterior tambien es muy chulo. Y Reach for the sky, un trallazo!

From: Mediaab Date: December 18, 2005 at 17:22
Some really good songs on this one, but also some not so good. Mark Slaughter's voice is rather annoying, a clear minus, but solid drumming and cool riffs are on the plus side. Sometimes the endings of the songs are way too long (irritating), not consistent enough song quality wise. Production is much better on the debut, not so good on this one. Quite disappointing release overall I'm sorry to say.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 23, 2006 at 14:06
MALDITA SEA Amarilla hijo de tu puta m... no es posible otro partido robado de otro arbitro sudamericano de porqueria PORQUE!!! convocan estas porquerias de arbitros al mundial solo deben ir Argentinos o Brasileños ESOS SI SON ARBITROS, pobre Tunez merecio ganar un penal tan claro como el agua que el hijo de pu... del arbitro no vio.. entonces eres un ciego basura una expulsion que no existio, le dio el pase alos Ucranianos que ni se lo merecen no merecen estar en el Mundial...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 23, 2006 at 14:16
cobra un penal a favor de Ucrania que ni existio, me importa una mierd.. que despues en octavos Tunez caiga derrotado pero debe pasar el que se lo merece, el defensa de Ucrania en el tiro libre se creia vivo alza la mano y la basura de amarilla no cobra el penal me llegan al huevo al igual que Rafa Marquez que se quizo pasar de viviri y le cobraron el penal por baboso, paises como Ucrania o Francia no deberian estar en octavos porque no se lo merecen

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 23, 2006 at 14:21
y sobre este album que felizmente para mi lo adquiri solo en casette por el 93 y esta banda apestan una voz que da dolor de oidos al igual que esos arbitros de porqueria del mundial no valen un pepino

From: jean slaughter Date: July 19, 2006 at 18:54
si se pide buen hard rock, entonces SLAUGHTER es la respuesta. felicito a todos los fanaticos por apreciar la buena mùsica.y me da lastima el pobre cagado y perdedor de Rafo Phoenix q no sabe nada de musica. mas parece un futbolista fustrado. QUE VIVA SLAUGHTER!!!

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: August 3, 2007 at 20:24
Aqui se confirma en gran nivel por el que pasaba SLAUGHTER con este regio discazo, ahora practicando un estilo mas maduro y contundente. Este fué de los primeros discos que escuche de niño y no dejaba de ponerlo a todas horas, gracias a esos temas tan melódicos y contundentes como la aplastante "Reach For The Sky"; la prendidisima "Out For Love"; la contagiosa "Wild Life"; la lenta "Days Gone By"(que temazo); la ritmica y alegre "Dance For Me Baby"(ya les digo, cada tema me gustaba de este...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: August 3, 2007 at 20:28
disco, cuando era un crio jeje); "Times They Change" de estructura musical algo mas compleja para lo acostumbrado en SLAUGHTER, gran tema; la bellisima balada "Real Love" con un coro increible; otro baladón increible es "Streets Of Broken Hearts" con esa voz dulce de Mark Slaughter y unas guitarras cristalinas; la trepidante "Hold On" y por ultimo "Do Ya Know" otro gran tema de Hard Rock Melódico. En fin, un disco maravilloso... RECOMENDADO!!!

From: DanDare Date: September 15, 2008 at 14:50
Listening to this album was like standing in a lift and hearing the guy (or girl) standing next to you fart - needless and unpleasant for anybody that has to hear it. And it's too long as well. All this is showing off, who needs 14 songs that all sound the same with the same guitar solo in each of them. Silly men. 30/100

From: pie75 Date: August 8, 2010 at 9:42
dandare did you have ear plugs in when you listened to this? what a silly comment the songs don't sound the same at all anyway good follow up like reach for the sky,the wild life,dance for me baby,real love,streets of broken hearts,hold on and old man is a nice old blues number

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 11, 2011 at 21:55
This album somehow defined what Slaughter was gonna be...a band for the masses(especially teens)...catchy rocking songs and an eternal loving ballad in "Real Love" but with a chessy video that for me is at the end is a big shot(my fave song of them undoubtebly)...about the rest of the tracks we have goodies such as "Reach For The Sky","The Wild Life","Days Gone By"(nice),"Dance For Me Baby","Move To The Music"(great groovin' sound),"Shake This Place","Streets Of Broken Hearts"(AORish mid tempo)& "Perfect World"(nice B/T)...recommended if you like the "poppy side of rock"...i quite dig it...90/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 12, 2021 at 19:06
There were times in the first half of 1992 when you could close your eyes and pretend it was still 1990. Slaughter's second album is one of those times, as the band goes back to the well for another batch of party-hearty songs made for summertime cruising. The trouble with Slaughter has always been that their songwriting just isn't consistent, and so we get another mixed bag of the good, the bad and the truly awful. The sound is a little drier, as the drums don't have that electronic, Def Lep-like BOOM as on the debut, and Dana Strum has backed off some of the sound effects. The disc opens just like the last one did, with a building intro into a heavy, lumbering track in "Reach For The Sky." The title track was the first single, and when I first saw the video in April, I thought, "Yep - all's right with the world!" "Shake This Place" and "Dance For Me Baby" keep the party rolling all night. "Real Love" was a bad choice for a follow-up single - a shrieky, hookless ballad that stiffed.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 12, 2021 at 19:12
Another ballad, "Days Gone By," has that whole Desmond Child "big power chords fading down to just piano and vocals for the verse, then building back for the chorus" thing going on, but it's no "Angel." I actually liked "Times They Change" quite a bit, even if it is a bit too long. "Streets Of Broken Dreams" is another good mid-tempo semi-ballad i the style of "You Are The One" off the last album. But, like the debut, there are just too damn many songs here, and the fun runs out before the disc does, closing finally(!) with the plodding 'Do Ya Know" and then they try to get all bluesy and do their own "Hangman Jury" on "Old Man." Again, these guys are not Aerosmith, even the sober version.
