They go on tour with Pantera for a while and they all of a sudden try to be them! Sad album. Slave is still the best!!!

From: metal_man73 Date: October 31, 2001 at 17:55
Can you say Def Leppard 'Slang', Dokken 'Dysfunctional' or Motley Crue 'Generation Swine'??? All the greats have done it but needless to say, they are alright albums if you forget their past ones!

From: koogles Date: January 1, 2002 at 18:22
A career-killing album. Ancient Chinese proverb: stick to what you do best, not to what others do best!!

From: Nuno(Hollywood) Date: April 24, 2002 at 13:47
Good Fuckin' album...Skid meets Pantera...but fuckin' great....Breakin' Down n' Into Another kick ass....N' My Enemy, Firesign n' Face Against My Soul are fuckin' great...Not hard rock but very good...

PENOSO,LAMENTABLE Y VOMITIVO.Si no lo tienes ni te acerques y si lo tienes QUEMALO!!

From: el colebrom Date: July 6, 2002 at 23:41
Eu concordo com 9 champions a 1.Este disco é estranho,penoso e não é SKID ROW.Parece mesmo PANTERA por isso eu o detesto.

From: Chris Date: August 12, 2002 at 22:11
Good album, one of their best. It really showcases Sebastian Bach's awesome set of pipes. Buy it, you will not be disappointed!

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: August 12, 2002 at 22:17
'Awesome set of pipes?'.........Chris, Chris, Chris.......... I take it that you have never seen Sebastian live? Believe me, you don't want too.

From: yana_rock Date: August 13, 2002 at 7:56
I don't fuckin care that some guys don't like that album. I am a real Skid fan and love evrything they do. There are some really cool songs here - 'My Enemy', 'Eileen', 'Frozen', 'Ito Another'... I love it, as everything else Skid Row used to do while they were still the best with Rob and Bas. SKID ROW RULES! That's what I say hehe.

From: rocknutter2001 Date: August 15, 2002 at 9:53
first of all i thought this album was average but when i listened to it a couple of times it just got better and better and in the end i thought this album really kicked ass and anyway skid row with sebastian bach cant do no wrong

From Mallorca. Es una puta mierda. No se a que viene esta bazofia. No lo compreis.

From: The Fizzy One Date: September 22, 2002 at 21:42
What a disappointment, in the musically hellish year of 1995, to find that Skid Row was coming out with a new album, and to wait eagerly to get it ... and it's so mediocre. You can tell Baz is doing his best to seize control on this one, and the songs suffer. They try so hard to be Pantera, and Baz screams his balls off every chance he gets, far too often. THe good songs are 1, 5, 9, 11, and 12. One good thing is the production which is as good as on Slave to the Grind, if a little more polished

From: Anthony Wild Date: September 24, 2002 at 0:01
I have to agree with Fizzy on this one! BUT they did a even better Pantera record than Pantera could do! (not including 'cowboys from hell', when Phil was still 'singing':-) Skid Row = all-time favorite (w.Sebastian offcourse) Does anyone have the site to Sebastian Bach???????

A totally new and very controversial Skid Row! No matter good or bad, after their former albums at first this really creates a shock! Because there is the domination of dark metal and alternative-rock here. No hair, no hard-rock at all. Some people will love, die for it and some will disgust! I'm neighter of them but I have to admit sth: Even if alternative is not my kinda music, it's so strange that this is a pretty good album, even better than the real damn grungers!

From: ARXONTAS Date: January 11, 2003 at 10:36
Skid Row going thrash metal?Thats right.Every self respecting hard rock group trying to find its routes in the big Heavy Metal family.Sometimes they try to be like their idols,groups that they love to heard when they were kids.Thats not fault.The fault is to 'sell out' for some dollars more and trying to be the new Nirvana or the new Backstreet Boys.Frozen's mind-tempo thrash metal and excellent balland Eileen will crush your skull...Absolutely No Alternative

If I'm not mistaken, this came out after they had toured with the likes of Anthrax, Pantera and other heavier acts. It seems to have definitely influenced the release. Definitely not a consistently great disc, but there are some real ass-kickers on here.

From: Frank Venom Date: February 17, 2003 at 0:00
Un buen disco q´ no tiene nada q´ver con sus otros discos si lo comparas con el primer LP parecen dos bandas diferentes hata su himagen cambio.Tal vez en 1995 se quisieron colgar del exito de badas como Pantera y edurecieron su sonido. El disco es sucio,fuerte y en ocaciones parece una banda Thrash.Si te gusta Hard Rock no lo compes pero si te gusta el Thrash ,la musica fuerte y estas buscando algo diferente te lo recomiendo.

From: robert Date: February 17, 2003 at 14:43
Nada q ver con sus 2 primeras maravillas, en este para mi solo se salvan algunos temas sueltos...una pena!

From: Fred Date: February 17, 2003 at 17:20
Horrible album; too much of an alternative spin.

From: Dani Date: March 21, 2003 at 11:44
El mismo día que lo compré, se lo vendí a un amigo. Un disco absolutamente insoportable. Si de verdad te gusta el Hard-Rock, odiarás esta mierda. Cayeron muy bajo intentando imitar a los grupos alternativos del momento. 0/10

I AGREE WITH YOU rocknutter2001

From: fernando Date: May 31, 2003 at 18:46
soy un seguidor de toda la vida de esta gran banda..............................a pesar de este ¿disco?,que decepcion, despues de slave no me esperaba esto.slave es un disco antologico y el 1º es un buen disco.de todos modos no sé q pasa con las grandes bandas de los 80 y ppios 90,ahora hacen 'musica' horrorosa,lamentable!no me puedo creer que sean tan malos¡,luego a bucear en los gloriosos tiempos.from santander

From: Slap Maggie Date: June 25, 2003 at 13:47
Skids does it again.Again, they make a right turn toward individuality when evey other band turned left toward the white shirts.First listen I was with everyone else and thought it was a Pantera clone.No?It actually sounds heavier than it is.A bit more than Slave, but not quite Cowboys From Hell.I liken it to a smarter STP.Bach's voice is even better on this release as he hits ranges few can do, gutteral to screams (you have to love the screams).This grows on you after a few, so give it a shot.

From: vikingo666 Date: September 4, 2003 at 6:04
cuando me lo compre me quede flipado se me cayeron los webos al suelo, no es que sea malo ni mucho menos pero no me sonaba a skid row, me sonaba mas bien a pantera con seb bach a la voz,los unicos temas que son algo decentes son 'breakin down' y 'elein' los demas son como si fueran canciones desechadas de pantera,una decepcion mas en los 90 desde luego la decada mas esperpentica de la historia de la musica,los 90 fue como un virus para las grandes bandas de los 80,acabo con casi todas.

From: Gar Date: September 18, 2003 at 17:49
'Slave to the Grind' saw Skid Row adopt a heavier and more aggressive sound, while still churning out great anthemic songs. 'Subhuman Race' continues with the heavier style, but unfortunately doesn't deliver the musical goods like its predecesors did. There are a few strong tracks on this(in particular 'Into Another'), but the rest are bland 90s metal. Heavy? Yes. But it lacks the personality and charm of their previous releases.

From: King James Date: September 23, 2003 at 5:01
This one isn't as heavy or as metal as Slave To the Grind was. Too bad. Still pretty good, though. There's no heavy metal band better than Skid Row!

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: February 17, 2004 at 1:50

From: Lullä Milanese Date: April 25, 2004 at 15:06
I agree with someone who told that they tried to be Pantera. And album by album (skid row, slave to the grind and subhuman race) they got heavier and heavier. I almost could see them reaching Death Metal field hehehe

From: Rockhead Date: May 14, 2004 at 12:39
The reason this Cd did not sell is because it is uniformly shite from pretty much beginning to end. It has nothing to do with selling out it is a matter of taste-to which Slik has little based upon the deranged warblings here. I am sure many are quaking at the thought of upsetting you.

From: Brandon Date: May 15, 2004 at 18:36
Not a bad album although hardly their greatest. Some songs absolutely rock but some are kinda shitty. This is by far their heaviest album. Too bad this album didn't come out a few years later cuz it coulda been huge! This album deserves about a 7.5-8 rating (as it currently is).

From: jack Date: May 24, 2004 at 5:41
Prefer slave to the grind than this album! This album is so 90's compare to the previous two album. I wish skid row would produce songs like 'forever','youth gone wild' or 'rattlesnake shake' again!

From: Slik Vicc Date: May 24, 2004 at 9:57
Totally cool heavier sound from the Skids this time around. Might take a few spins to grow, but its worth the effort!! However not really something I'd recommend to the Michael Bolton fans of the world....ya mean!!

From: Sue-Donim Date: May 24, 2004 at 10:45
If you like loud, de-tuned guitars and songs that have little melody then this is the album for you. A total sell out influenced by the Pantera's of this world (Halford's Two anyone) and pretty much alienated 95% of their fan base, hence the very poor sales. It took years for the band to recover from this. Good as the production is a class album needs songs...this lacks them.

From: jack Date: June 15, 2004 at 9:23
A very poor effort by one of my favourite sleaze/glam metal bands of all time. Slave to the grind and their debut album is much better than these one. Unoriginal(pantera like sounding) and lack the feel that makes the such a great band in the late 80's and early 90's. Such a shame!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 0:55
This one will turn off a lot of fans, and I don't blame you, but if you give it a few listens it does show that it is a strong disc. The hooks are not as immediate, but after a while you will begin to realize the quality of some of these songs ("My Enemy", "Frozen", "Breakin' Down"). 7/10

From: jack Date: July 20, 2004 at 1:30
I don't think hooks will be that noticeable here! LET'S face it,its the 90's,not the glorious 80's era where hooks were everywhere around any poison,motley crue,wasp,quiet riot,ratt,scorpion and yes,skid row album. You will never find a 90's album as 'hookier' as ratt's out of the cellar album.

From: Geoff Date: September 10, 2004 at 3:09
Wow, that rating is really harsh! Although the band sound far inferior musically to earlier releases (What happened?!), this is still a good heavy metal album. 'Eileen' is brilliant, 'Into another' is cool hard rock and yes, I am being honest, 'Breakin' down' is sincerely one of my favourite songs ever. A gem of a track. I also really dig 'My enemy' and the rest is good metal. The band sound nowhere near as good or solid musically as they did 'Slave to the grind'-era, but it's a good album!

From: Kip Date: September 10, 2004 at 21:38
I actually agree with the rating. To me the only song I like is Firesign. The rest is just too edgy and not enough hooks or catchy tunes. It's boring heavy metal. 3/10

From: Brandon Date: October 29, 2004 at 18:24
Supposedly After this Disc Skid Row released another album called Razor Sharp. I really know nothing about the Album. supposedly it came out in 1996 and the songs on it look like stuff the Skids would write. If anyone has any info on this disc please let me know.

Champions escribió:"PENOSO,LAMENTABLE Y VOMITIVO.Si no lo tienes ni te acerques y si lo tienes QUEMALO".Bueno,pues por una vez estoy en total desacuerdo.Subhuman Race me parece ACOJONANTE!Qué pasada de sonido,de actitud,de enfoque...difícil de escuchar pero totalmente consistente y desde luego tan bueno como cualquiera de sus anteriores trabajos.BobRock redondeó un álbum de hard-pesado como ya hiciera con MotleyCrue.Si te gustan los 90 o te hartaste de pelos cardados...8'5/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: howe Date: December 18, 2004 at 18:01
I love this album! "Breakin' Down" is one of the best songs the band ever wrote! Also, you can't miss "Into Another" and "Eileen." Good 90's Hard Rock! 8/10

Music is great, sound is great, vocal is great. Here is all power of all music whatever it has been!!! (metal_man73-suck)

From: visitor Date: August 29, 2005 at 8:06
*Sigh.* Just paid 7 euros for this in a local store, listened it through once, and if it wasn't for Bach's divine voice I couldn't possibly have guessed I'm listening to Skid Row. Nothing stuck to my ears; no melodies, no choruses, no hooks, no nothing. OK, many people here have told to give it a few tries before it grows on you, but sadly this just isn't the kind of music I like. The production is fine but doesn't save the day in my books. I want the Skid Row of the first two albums. Not this.

From: Beikes Date: September 14, 2005 at 17:50
What's wrong with you people?? This is one of the best albums of the decade (not that it says much really). It deserves a couple of more spins, but then it really grows on you, and you'll be able to tell thatt this is a true Skid Row masterpiece. Not as good as Slave To The Grind, but equally as amazing as their debut! Melodic, aggressive and classic! 9.5/10

From: mauricio Date: November 8, 2005 at 12:25
hi-from COSTARICA,en efecto este disco fue una de las grandes cagadas de hace 10 años.lo compre en cassete (por dicha no malgaste mi dinero)pero el gran responsable de esta SUPER FIASCO fue BOB ROCK gracias a el salio este odioso disco del cual solo rescato solo 2 temas y quizas los 2 mejores MY ENEMY-INTO ANOTHER el resto es de relleno. lo mas agradable del caso fue que vendi el cassete 1/10 muy malo y pobre

From: rockhardrock Date: July 18, 2007 at 7:36
i hate to critisise, but here i will. i listened to that album and it just couldnt grow on me.1995 is the year when hair metal was not very popular and that cd is far from being a hair metal album,that is why i dont like it. the only 2 songs that i like are "Into Another" and "Breakin' Down". but thats only my own opinion.

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 11:57
This is pretty good CD and possibly their last good one.

From: GlamSlam Date: September 6, 2009 at 8:11
Not like two earlier albums, but really good album, catchy songs n really ass kicking attitude yea!

From: hair metal again Date: May 16, 2012 at 2:08
great hard rock release by SKID ROW in a certain heavier approach but still with a rockin vibe and attitude!all the songs are fine,the guitars are awesome and Seb sings amazing!much energy and raw power is what you get but in their slower moments they re still excellent!enjoyable release which i must say that you need a few spins to dig it!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: April 23, 2013 at 20:12
Skid Row were my Favorite Band back in the day, but by 1995, I had about given up on hearing new music from them. Just seemed too long since Slave To The Grind. So imagine my delight when this disc came along. Actually, I don't remember thinkign it was all that great at the time, and not because of the heavier direction, which I liked. I just didn't feel the songs were that strong. But Subhuman Race is a definite grower. Skid Row didn't disgrace themselves at all. Nope, "Youth Gone Wild" and "18 And Life" are long gone, with virtually nothing remaining of the sound from the debut. It might not be heavier than Slave To The Grind musically, but it feels that way because there aren't as many immediately catchy hooks, and the mood seems a tad less angry in places, but also darker. Favorites would be "My Enemy," "Beat Yourself BLind," "Eileen," "Frozen," "Into Another," "Medicine Jar," and the vicious "Ironwill."

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 12, 2013 at 20:53
The Skids couldn't escape the temptation of recording an album with the sound of that moment(grunge/alternative)and some fans were dissapointed obviously(they sound here like a more metallic version of Soundgarden)...the album itself is not bad or could be,better said, appealing for open minded listeners(if you are one) but if you are into early SR then you'll puke 4 sure..."My Enemy","Bonehead","Beat Yourself Blind","Subhuman Race","Breakin' Down"(nice semi soft)& "Iron Will"(with that funny hidden track in it) are my faves...70/100

From: Chris Z'nuff Date: March 31, 2016 at 5:03
Very disappointing album 4 me! This is grunge era album and i don't like this! This is not a Skid Row that we know. Feels influence bands like Alice Chains and Pantera. Only one song is worth mentioning, this is Into Another. Only in that song recognize old Skid Row. 3.5/10

From: Stixx Date: November 7, 2023 at 8:33
The very first comment "...trying to be Pantera" is unfortunately true. How a band can really get lost. The only killer song and sole survivor is "Into Another", which is awesome. It's OK to develop, but sometimes artists can take it way too far, following trends and forget their core, that was great choruses all over the first two and the only great albums they ever did.
