This was by far their best cd. Every song throws you back (Bach) in your seat or off your feet. I love to jam to this one in my car, or at home, or anywhere there is a cd player. No Hard Rock collection would be complete without this cd.

The scarecrow wanted a brain, the Tin Man wanted a heart and the lion wanted courage. I wanted to have a voice like Sabastian Bach!!!Damn can that guy sing! This album proves it! "In A Darkened Room" "Wasted Time" and "Quicksand Jesus" are 3 of the most powerful ballads I have heard!!!Bach is one of the coolest rockers around! I just have 3 words for ya, GET BACK TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!

From: Rycheage Date: December 24, 2001 at 13:09
I have to agree. Bach has one of the most powerful voices in metal. This is the best Skid Row CD. If you don't have it, get it.

The best album ever to me...The best vocals ,guitars n' stuff...Simple the fuckin' best kick ass album of all times...Sebastian Bach on his best moment!

From: Altay Date: June 3, 2002 at 15:35
this cd is one of my greatest.sebastian is the best i've ever heard.he's the most talented musician,but also the most untalented musician and human being.i can't believe my vocal god is a dickhead.very sad.he could be much bigger .

"Slave To The Grind" is the best Skid Row album, I think...! Wild, crazy, amazing, PURE ROCK! My most favourite hard rock album ever! Sebastian fuckin' rules! Just listen to "Mudkicker", "Psycho Love" and "Monkey Business"... it's SO wild, crazy and amazing! SKIDS RULES WITH BAS! Hope he will come back, coz Skid Row is not Skid Row without him. And , ah yeah - Solinger, fucker, you can kiss my ass! BAS IS THE ONE AND ONLY!

From: Date: August 12, 2002 at 23:47
Picking up where "piece of me" and "youth gone wild" left off on their debut - this album is the very definition of hard rock. At the time this came out Guns and Roses were the defacto kings of the rock world - but Skid Row were the crowned princes awaiting top spot glory. Alas, the world moved on and internal strife tore them apart before they could achieve what they had laid the groundwork for. Sebastian is -the- best vocalist out there, Snake/Hill/Bolan are amazing. Affuso always sucks.

From: rocknutter2001 Date: August 15, 2002 at 9:45
well what an album the debut album was outstanding but this is just a masterpiece excellent drummer outstanding guitaring and bass and well sebastian bach is without doubt one of the best rock singers anywhere i dont think any vocalist coyld sing these song the way sebastian did if your a rock fan and dont have this album as the judas priest song goes your breaking the law

From: The Fizzy One Date: September 15, 2002 at 23:07
Definitely in my top five of all time, probably top three. Actually, my copy has "Betggar's Day," my mom wouldn't let me get the one with "Get the Fuck Out." I was ten. The heavy songs on here make you wanna go out and kill somebody, and then the ballads? I would spend hours just rewinding that tape to hear certain moments of those three ballads, and holy SHIT, the guitarwork on "In a Darkened Room" is EARTH-SHATTERING!

From: Blue Tequila Date: September 22, 2002 at 23:01
Was at the pawn shop last week and what did I happen to stumble upon? Slave To the Grind (with Get The Fuck Out) on cd for $4. I had the tape when it was first released but being a senior in high school who grew up on Headbangers Ball Hair Metal(with Adam, not Rikki)this album just didn't do it for me at the time. But I had read the great comments here about it and I'm glad I got it again because it does really rock! I think that's called hearing it again for the first time.

From: Anthony Wild Date: September 23, 2002 at 23:57
Every cd with Bas voice does it for me:-) Skid Row = all-time favorite (w.Sebastian offcourse) Does anyone have the site to Sebastian Bach???????

What can I say? It's another must-have album in your collection of rock n roll!!! The guitar riff in A Darkened Room is so memorable that I'll always do sound check with the song. Have to agree, Sebastian Bach is a powerful vocalist!!! Keep on rockin'...

From: Labrie Date: March 10, 2003 at 17:05
Otra joya más del makarreo pero eso si objetivamente peor que el primero aunque hay que decir que aquí encontré una de los medio-tiempos q jamás he conocido y me atrevería a decir que superior a 18 and life esta grandeza irreversible es wasted time.Un disco más para la estantería de los clásicos

From: fernando Date: May 31, 2003 at 18:27
el mejor con muchisima diferencia.Mucho mejor que el 1º pq es mucho mas heavy que este.Ademas tiene muchos mas matices y es mucho mas complejo(lo cual no tiene pq ser siempre +,pero en este caso si).Bach ofrece todo tipo de registros(wasted time es el paradigma de lo que es empezar "tranqui" para acabar con unos gritos que destrozarian la garganta a cualquiera).por otra parte las quitarras adquieren en canciones como quicksand jesus que me encanta.en definitiva,basico,de subhuman race prefiero n

From: Trick Taylor Date: June 25, 2003 at 10:25
Actually SCANDINAVIA, here is an example of a band that went LESS commercial with each successive album. I think SLAP MAGGIE has a point in that PAIN/GIRLS/FEELBAD era Crue was basically a pop music creation. Watered down and pre-packaged ideal of what the record companies thought nasty music should be. Nikki knows it. Why do you think he is always trying to form a band that gets back to the SHOUT roots? Again, MAGGIE is right on. Who listens to the Crue anymore?

From: Scandinavia Date: June 25, 2003 at 10:33
Hi Trick Taylor. Yes, you're right! I'd completely forgotten 'bout Skid Row...Good example! But you ask who listens to the Crue??? Only a big part of all the nostalgics in here...Face it, although there are many "new" bands posted in here it's mostly a site for all those loving the hard rock/Aor scene pre-1992 or so...I get you're point 'bout the commercial Crue albums. I don't like Theatre and Girls 'bout in my opinion Feelgood was a return to their roots (Before their debut). Sure it was..

From: Scandinavia Date: June 25, 2003 at 10:37
..commercial but so was the whole hardrock scene at that time...For me Motley Crue was always about Rock'n'roll and I've never really considered them as a metal band. As an album I think Feelgood is their best effort ever. It was time for them to stop fooling around on their instruments (Mick Mars in particular) and create some really good music...And they sure did!

From: Scandinavia Date: June 25, 2003 at 10:39
Sorry 'bout the spelling errors...It went a bit fast...Hehe

From: Scandinavia Date: June 25, 2003 at 10:50
To Trick Taylor: But as I wrote to "Slap Maggie" it's those taste differences that make it exciting...I like commercial Crue(Actually I think their debut and Feelgood were their best albums), some like "Metal" Crue and that's just fine. For me it's the other way around regarding Bon Jovi. I don't like his commercial stuff as much as I like his debut for example...Again: Taste differences...But what are you into? You don't sound to crazy 'bout ol' Crue...

From: Slap Maggie Date: June 25, 2003 at 13:41
Right on Trick!This album by Skids is one of my favs of all time.Here is a band, with one of the ultimate singer/screamers the genre ever witnessed, that steered away from commercial success and drove toward their own tastes.Here is a release that crossed lines and spoke words, all the while being in your face metal bordering thrash at times.Skids even walked that fine line of slowing down without throwing up a ballad.Too bad it was marketed by a monkey.See Subhuman for more.

From: Harvey Date: June 29, 2003 at 9:43
Just how ahead of its time does this music sound? Listen to Staind, Nickleback or Linkin Park and hear the same style, sound and lyrical agression executed 10 years earlier, by a better band. Try this: make an unmarked recording of 3 sample songs and give it to your 13 year old (Linkin Park loving) nephew. Wait for him to ask you who it is and where he can get it. Fantastic...And any time you've had a shit day at work listen to the title track...a revelation.

From: ED Date: August 26, 2003 at 16:27
This album rocks! My favorite hard song, "SLAVE TO THE GRIND" and my favorite power ballad "WASTED TIME". Is a great album from beginning to the end! If you are looking for SKID ROW at their best get this one!

From: vikingo666 Date: September 4, 2003 at 6:09
el mejor disco de skid row para mi gusto con 3 autenticos baladones a cual mejor no se si quedarme con quicksand jesus o wasted time y que me decis del temazo de monkey business o livin on a chain gang,buenisimo disco un 10

What a change in music from their Fantastic debut cd. . . I thought 2 songs were ok but the rest is erratic noise. . . It's actually embarrassing to tell people this is the same band who played all those cool songs from the debut cd.

From: James Date: October 10, 2003 at 10:00
Agree, I don't like this cd near as much as people say I shold like it. Too Aggressive for my taste,not enough melody. I'll stick with the first cd by these guys.

From: Gar Date: October 10, 2003 at 11:39
Their debut is still my favorite, but this is one hell of a followup. The title track alone is guaranteed to get your heart pumping, but there are also some great ballads lurking around as well. "Wasted Time" & "Quicksand Jesus" are 2 of the best songs the band has ever done. While the debut pretty much sticks to the late 80s metal formula(albeit they do a better job than most), SLAVE find the Skids unafraid to experiment a bit. This disc truly stands the test of time.

From: King James Date: October 11, 2003 at 18:28
Anyone who can't enjoy this amazing CD isn't a true Skid Row fan. I know I sure can!

From: Dean Date: October 11, 2003 at 18:44
From a commercial standpoint i can see why people like the first one better but for me there is just no comparision-this album defined pure hard rock when it came out. The lyrics are awesome and Sebastian's vocals are top notch. I remember the day when this came out and shortly thereafter i saw them play at Alpine Valley with G-n-R and the band was as tight as hell. Skid Row had a blast playing music and it always came across in the tunes.

From: TIM Date: October 11, 2003 at 21:13
Although I favor the debut- I love this one. Monkey Business, Slave To The Grind, Psycho Love, Get The Fuck Out, Mudkicker, and Beggars Day all kick ass. The whole damn thing is great though.

From: Elton Braga Date: October 28, 2003 at 15:34
Sem dúvida,esse álbum é FODA!!!!!!!! Sujo,rápido,agressivo,com letras muito bem pensadas,instrumental magnífico,e se é que eu preciso dizer,Sebastian Bach canta muito! As 4 primeiras músicas dizem tudo!

OH MY GOD, BACH RULES!!!!!!! THIS IS A MASTERPIECE. Dont get better than this!!!!!!

From: Bizkit82 Date: January 18, 2004 at 17:46
I remember thinking how heavy this CD was after listening to the debut. If these guys put their shirts on, cut their hair, grew goatees and dressed like bikers, you could call 'em GODSMACK!! My point? Skid Row = GREAT BAND. If you look closely at metal today, it's there, just repackaged with a different look, and a different attitude. The days of worshipping the band as "conquering pirates" are definitely over, and the attention span of CD buyers is really short. That explains all the 1 hitters.

From: keepthefaith Date: March 17, 2004 at 10:38
este desde luego es el disco de las baladas(Quicksand Jesus,Wasted Time,In A Darkened Room),sin desmerecer a canciones como las dos primeras(Monkey Business,Slave To The Grind).descatable sin duda la voz de potencia sobrenatural de Sebastian Bach,desde luego mete unas vaciladas de virtuosismo.....

From: ppfinder Date: March 19, 2004 at 15:49
One of the best hard rock albuns ever made. I've this on LP and CD, but i'm still looking for the single Wasted Time, who has a powerfull live version of Get The Fuck Out.

From: Cruise Date: March 29, 2004 at 4:48
Fizz, 34 Hours is an Irish band called Skid Row. They played prog. jazz rock and featured Gary Moore when he was 16. Nothing to do with this Skid Row. Love this album btw. Total classic.

If you crave some heavy rockin tunes, this record has your fix. Unless you don't have a pulse monkey bussines will get you going every time. But this in not just all hard rockers, there are some killer ballads too quicksand jesus(what a name!) and wasted time will do it for you. I have not heard the new singer.I don't need too, I know he's not sebastian bach.

From: fernando-spain Date: June 4, 2004 at 9:00
i can say this is the album that for me definies what hard rock/heavy metal is all about.i´ve listened to this album 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000...............and i still love it. i saw the band at alpine valley in 1992(plus love/hate, megadeth and pantera)and i have great memories of it i guess that music won´t never came back

From: c-rocks Date: June 16, 2004 at 7:12
There aren´t better ballads like quicksand jesus, in a darkened room and wasted time, simplemente perfectas. No busquéis otras baladas, y si las buscais las vais a encontrar en el primer disco: 18 and life y i remember you.Cuando lo escuchas unas 15.000 veces empieza a aburrir un poco.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 0:51
There are few hard rock and metal albums that can touch this one. Skid Row sound like they are playing what they really wanted to in the first place with this one, and that is pure heavy metal. So many great tracks, with my favorites being "Monkey Business", "Slave To The Gring", "Riot Act", and "Wasted Time". 10/10

From: Warhead Date: August 23, 2004 at 23:34
This is one of those rare cd's. Not all, but almost every song is solid. I remember when this was released. It shocked the jeepers out of anyone who watched MTV or listened to a rock format station. No wonder why they toured with Metallica w/ this disc. I highly recommend a nonSkid Fan, but someone who loves edgier rock/thrash/metal to check this disc out. A rare gem. If Skid was a new band and this was released today it would still do extremely well. Song stand the test of time.

From: Geoff Date: August 24, 2004 at 2:43
On eof the most solid hard rock CDs out there, with first class songwriting. 'In a Darkened room', 'Quicksand Jesus' and 'Wasted time' are three of the best ballads of any genre, 'Monkey business' is one of the best heavy rock songs of all time, 'Livin' on a chaingang' is also up there with the best, and the rest are great in your face hard rock / metal tracks. A brilliant CD in anyone's books.

From: Kip Date: September 10, 2004 at 21:44
Totally disagree here. I've had this CD since it was released and I never got into it the way i did the first one. They went for a harder, less melodic edge and I don't like that. Wasted Time is a carbon copy of I Remember You (But who cares!) And its the best song here. Get The F*ck Out was a cool fun song to play when I was a teen when my mom would bug me in my room. Slave To The Grind was the only other song I liked even a little. 3.5/10

From: Artie Date: November 19, 2004 at 5:15
Warhead, I don't think that Skid Row toured with Metallica. It was Pantera. They "may" have toured with Metallica, but I don't believe so, and I don't care to do a Google search on it either, which would be too easy. It would also be too easy to call Kip above an idiot, but I'll respect his opinion, even though he's wrong about Wasted Time being a carbon copy of I Remember You. I'm sure if you overlap any two songs, you can find certain beats and rhythms kind of sounding the same. So what.

From: hitchcock Date: November 21, 2004 at 20:22
Along with Appetite For Destruction from GNR is one of the masterpieces of hard rock. That album can change ones life (or mind)forever like they did to me. Good times!!!!

Unreal melodic metal album. Bach and friends are so in synch on this one it's not funny. "Slave To The Grind", "Monkey Business" and "Psycho Love" shows the real power of this band. They really should put their feelings aside and reunite. This band was just too powerful. "Wasted Time", "In A Darkened Room" and "Quicksand Jesus" are extraordinary in their own right. Put them all together, you have a classic on your hands.

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 16:43
The first time I put this one on it plastered me to the wall. Took me a week to peel off of the wall and another week to recover. This disc is full of excellent musicianship, as near perfection as one can get.

From: Artie Date: December 14, 2004 at 19:07
On the 'Clean' version of Slave to the Grind, "Get The Fuck Out" is substituted for "Beggars Day", which rocks just as good and hard as the other songs on the album. For those who haven't heard it, pick it up on WinMX or SoulSeek or any other P2P program.

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 22, 2006 at 11:05
I just recently acquired this one on CD as my cassette copy finally gave up the ghost... and y'know what? This album STILL kicks my ass up and down the street every time I hear it! Some folks like the debut better but IMHO "Slave" dusts everything else in their catalog. The entire band (especially Bach) gives the performances of their lives on this CD... a classic that everyone should own!!

I used to be one of those people who liked the debut over this one. That has changed over the years. I have the Japanese version which has both 'Get The Fuck Out' and 'Beggars Day'. I'd have to say 'Quicksand Jesus', 'In A Darkened Room', 'Slave To The Grind', and 'Monkey Business' are all stand out songs for me. 'Wasted Time' is my all time favorite track on here though. Yep, this is one asskicker of an album.

this album is the best for me, because they have my song: monkey busines, slave to the grind,in a darkened room, Quicksand Jesus. This is probably the best Hard Rock/Metal album of all time for me and also album skid row ( 1. album of skid row, where they have my beautiful and wonderful song and this is: 18 and life!

This is one of the best cds I've ever purchased. I remember freaking out when I heard 'Monkey Business' for the first was so fucking heavy compared to he first cd! The best cd of their career for sure! Not a bad note on this cd! The ballads are some of the finest I've ever heard. I saw them on this tour (Pantera opened) and they SLAYED the place...left it in a shambles! It's a shame they can't put aside their differences and get back together with Baz......

No de lejos, pero que duda cabe, es mucho mejor que su disco debut. Ya con "Monkey Business" se intuía lo que venía y lo corroboraba con "Slave To The Grind" Totalmente asesina!! luego están "Riot Act" y "Livin' On A Chain Gang" entre los Hardrockers y las baladas pues que mas, tenemos 3 totalmente imprescindibles, quien no las ha cantado con sus amigos me pregunto? THE BEST. 9.5/10

on May 2, 2007 at 14:38 my sister wrote comment,that one is mine: this one is no.2.,no 1. is their debut.this one is much heavier than their 1st but still great."Monkey Business"kicks ass for sure."Slave To The Grind" is very heavy, but it has great riffs."The Threat" is very good rocker."Beggar's Day" is way much better than "Get The Fuck Out" and is one of my fave. from that album."Quicksand Jesus" and "Wasted Time" are 2 beautiful power ballads that can compare with 2 from their debut.

This is another great one,buy it and their best.

From: edwithmj Date: July 24, 2009 at 21:05
Definitely not as good as the debut. The debut got me hooked from the first listen while this takes much longer to get into if it's possible. I find myself getting very bored when I listen to this but it's still OKish when the debut gets listened too much. A big disappointment.

like first album 100/100 every song rocks, Sebastin Bach is the best singer ever n´ Skid Row is the best Hard Rock band ever.

From: lancer2430 Date: April 27, 2010 at 0:54
Among my top 20 best album ever. No bad songs. You always wanted to sing a long and shout it out load everytime you hear Sebastian Bach singing. I give it 10/10.

From: ace66 Date: April 29, 2010 at 2:38
Yup....just superb,angry and brutal HR/HM.

From: pie75 Date: August 22, 2010 at 3:25

Along with Appetite For Destruction, Slave To The Grind is probably my favorite album of all time, and had a huge influence on my musical tastes growing up.I loved the debut, too, but Slave came out and completely blew it away. To me, Slave still sounds fresh and vital, while the s/t sounds a little dated, with that reverb-y '80's drum sound, and a few songs that are a bit too cheesy. If the band's personalities hadn't gotten in the way and caused them to implode, Skid Row is one band I could see carrying on and surviving the lean years. As for this album, well shit, you get the fist-to-the-nose ccrunch of "Monkey Business" (including Baz's iconic intro scream), "The Threat," "Psycho Love" and the oft-overlooked "Livin' On A Chain Gang," and the pure thrash of the title track. And then you get these three ballads, all different from each other, but all fantastic, and each with something to say, not just throwaway, the-label-said-we-needed-a-ballad, slow-dance-with-your-chick fare.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 23, 2010 at 10:10
And yeah, "Get The Fuck Out" is kinda stupid, and so is "Riot Act," an obvious nod to Rachel's love of punk, but when I play this disc, I skip neither of those tunes.

hard rock masterpiece by SKID ROW that marked the golden era of this genre!there will never be so much talent and class in hard rock music as in the late 80 s -early 90 s!Slave To The Grind is perfect and an all time classic!100/100

This album doesn't make any compromise at all. Either it kicks your ass with its aggressive hard n'heavy songs with street attitude or disarms you by absolute top-class ballads. This is the original so if I had to compare to something I might crossbreed Danger Danger with Judas Priest and add a few Steelheart's genes (IMO). On the other side, for me a bit aggressive with one filler (#11), but still high enough above the others, even better and more mature than the debut. 90/100.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 26, 2017 at 11:48
I dunno if this one is a more "mature" album but hell yeah is "heavier" than the band's debut for sure fave tracks are 3,7 & 11.The "thing" is that still misses to have the great cheesy mid tempo kinda song like the one "I Remember You".85/100

1991 produced great albums by Shotgun Messiah, Thunder, Tuff, Mr Big and others, but Skid Row's Slave to the Grind really shook up the establishment. Designed to rewite their image after being "labelled" following their debut, Skid Row released a pure metal beast. The opening one-two punch of Monkey Business and the title track is urgent and heavy as hell. There are other great tracks too like Quicksand Jesus, Psycho Love and Wasted Time. Sebastian Bach was barely holding his ego in check by this point and bad press started to plague the band. But, this is a hard masterpiece that is overlooked by snobby metal fans with narrow minds. GRADE A grind.

This one is seriously stretching the boundaries, but it's my pick for best sleaze-rock album of 1991. It fits the (admittedly nebulous) definition of sleaze-rock on attitude alone, as the music is pure metal. Just a ferocious, snarling record, whose lyrics expand on the decaying world GNR introduced us to on Appetite For Destruction, with tales of drugs, abuse, spiritual and societal malaise, murder—and trashy daytime TV. Themes that were right in step with the times, yet handled with almost none of the subtlety the emerging alt-rock scene was so lauded for, and paired with music that was like Cowboys Halfway To Hell. And yet, Scotti Hill does his best, soaring soloing ever on "In A Darkened Room." Lost to history is "Beggars Day," a damn good song that was only available on the "clean" version, in place of the blatantly misogynistic (even for its time) "Get The Fuck Out." Up to this point in my young life, hair-metal was about all I knew. I'd bought And Justice For All the previous ye

... year, and didn't get it. Slave To The Grind was something else entirely, and was my true gateway drug to the heavy stuff.
