|anyone who has never listened to the SLAMMIN'GLADYS song "CUM" has no idea what a FUN song is.Each time i hear it,I just go CRAZY:jump on my sofa,dance,sing aloud;it's the "slammin' gladys effect" as my doctor has explained to me.All the members of this band are great,especially the singer,BROOKS,he has a HELL of a voice:POWERFUL,GROOVY,FUN,and also full of EMOTION in the ballads.BROOKS appears also in the ERIK"WARRANT"TURNER project"Hollywood Underground" where he sings the song "CRY BABY"...

|J.J. FARRIS,the guitarist (FABULOUS solist),appears also on the WARRANT album "Ultraphobic" where he plays accoustic guitar on the (wonderful) ballad "STRONGER NOW".The SLAMMIN'GLADYS album has JANI LANE on the background vocals on two songs:it seems like WARRANT and SLAMMIN' GLADYS members know each others and have worked together in the past:I wish they would do it again!!!!

|I really miss these guys! I have no idea how I found this band back in the day, but I recently rediscovered them and I'm loving the album! I can't find any info on any of these guys after this album. Anyone got any other 'similar' bands/albums they would recommend that has the same sound/feel?
||Date: May 15, 2002 at 21:06|
|They have some good material on this album, but there is some that I thought was weak.
||Date: May 16, 2002 at 4:02|
|There's a couple of cool, funky songs but most of it is rather dull. Smashed Gladys is a 100 times better.
||Date: May 16, 2002 at 11:09|
|I agree. Smashed Gladys is a whole lot better.

|I found Slammin Gladys in 91 or 92, and they rock. I want to know where are they now? So all you guys in the band, I love you, make a come back, please!!!

|I was a little letdown when I heard their music. Oh well to each his own.
||Date: July 6, 2002 at 1:39|
|Saw this band live in late 92' while supporting this album... they were touring with Southgang. Incredible live act. Awsome bass lines, harmonies. Brooks was unsung David Lee Roth of the nineties!

|they brougth the funky element to the genre ..well, that's what i thought after seeing their video for bad attitude.., the song jani lane co wrote is also very good..an cool disc... rock on firstname.lastname@example.org

|I haven't heard this cd but I did hear their other one and I just can't imagine me driving thru town with their tune cranked called "Legs Up In The Air" . . . . That's the problem with the sleazy bands . . . Stilleto is another one with Cum in your mouth . . . . That is almost frightning cuz people would point and go tee hee . . . . . . . (And they wonder why the radio stations won't play their music) . . . keep the music unisex is what I say!!

|The video for "Bad Additude" you all have seen, was it edited or did it show chicks boxing in the ring topless, like the video I have??? I have the (single) unedited video (PROMO)!!!

|Yes, Warrant and Smashed did work together- I saw them in Jacksonville FL in 1992. I actually went backstage and hung out with smashed, played pool, ate at the Waffle House, and went back to his hotel to hang out- HA! Was I naive! I thought that's what he actually wanted to do. I guess he got pissed when I wouldn't give him any and when I was supposed to call him the next day to hang out his hotel room phone was busy. I know better now! He asked the bouncer to give me a backstage pass while I sl

|What is this crap ?--The unfortunate thing about the 80's/early 90's were these joke bands that came along,put out an album and thought they'd set the world on fire.When in essence they were below medicore and were a waste of studio time,sorry but this is one .
||Date: December 17, 2003 at 19:06|
|Yeh - there were never ANY bands in the 90's that were 'joke' bands , right??? HAHAHAHAA - YOU FUCKIN MORON. The ENTIRE 90's were a JOKE - shitty alternative , crappy-ass wannabe punk , and no-talent grunge-SHYTE! Now meet my friend SHADDA - yeh SHADDA FUK UP!!

|Hey you f**king dumb-ass !------You cannot compare sh*t like "Slammin Gladys" to bands like Xyz,Dokken,Ratt,Dio and Accept.I think you misunderstood the context of my comments.At no time did i say the 90's were great,i agree with you that they f**king sucked !!!!!!!!!!!

|I read good reviews when it came out so I bought it. Didn't like it at all. Gave it away, and listened to Hardline a whole lot more. to each his own!
||Date: March 2, 2004 at 16:58|
|I got this cd the other day, expecting a kick-ass, melodic, anthemic 80s rock band, but I was sorely disappointed. Not one of their songs is hard rockin, they try to dick around with funk metal way too much. And they sound a lot like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who just flat out suck.

|Just got this in the mail today...and I am blown away!! I LOVE this stuff!!!! Their version of "Piece Of My Heart" is awesome!! LOVE that song, anyway....and they just made it even better!!! Lovin' the song "Push"!! Hey...from the above comments, it may not be everyone's cup o' tea........but it suits ME just FINE!!!

|The Slammin Gladys and Warrant connection actually happened in Akron. Alley and Brooks were in a band called "Risque" which was one of the top bands in Ohio and Jani Lane and in the the opening act "Cyren". Cyren also included Johne Weakland who went on to work in AR @ Sony Music, LA...I was lucky enough to play bass for a while in Cyren, it was a blast to be around all those talented players...I got the Slammin Gladys cd while in Germany and I thought it was great it just came out @ the wrong t

|I really wanted to like this album. I picked it up in '95 after seeing Jani Lane was involved (I thought he had a hand in the production as well, maybe not). Unfortunately I expected a lot more than what was there. Despite a funk vibe that showed up at times most tracks were rather uninspired and unmemorable and after a few plays I realized it wasn't growing on me so I got rid of it.

|If you like Slammin Gladys, Dave Brooks has two albums out with Dave Brooks and A Cast Of Thousands. The albums are 'A Fine Mess' and 'Coulor Blind' Very good cds. You can check them out at www.jedtdog.com or www.davebrooks.net

|You knew that the hair band era was pretty much over when bands like this were able to realease albums in 1992. A weak display of funky hard rock. The first side is just plain bad, and the cover song (Piece Of My Heart) is one of the worst covers I have heard. Side two is better, "What U Need" is a good ballad and "Where Were U" actually mixes the funk and hard rock well. 3/10
||Date: September 14, 2004 at 2:25|
|I believe it is 'What u need' that is the ballad written by Jani Lane, or am I mistaken. I will have to look at the CD when I get home, but if I recall correctly there is a ballad written by Jani Lane and that track is good. The rest is the most average shitty hard rock you're likely to hear. Sorry, make that below average. Very poor CD, but the ballad is good.

|Pretty good cd, actually much better than I remember it being the first time I owned it. The big thing I really don't care for is the funk element the band utilized. I've just never been a huge fan of that in hard rock music. That being said, "Where Were U" does turn out to be a pretty catchy song. My favorite track is the ballad "Down On Your Knees" which was one of 2 tracks co-written by Jani Lane. "Bad Attitude" and the cd bonus track "Cum" are a couple other great tracks.

|One of the most killer melodic HR record from an unknown band !!! Please buy this one ! It has everything a classic cd must have to make you happy !! Too good to be ignored, many copies to bid on on e-bay ! Believe me, go and buy you won't never be disappointed or i understand nothing to melodic HR !! So great !!!!!!!!
||Date: April 23, 2009 at 16:37|
|i wouldn't say this record is a glam rock/metal, but more a combo of 90s hard rock, glam metal and funk rock/metal. this album has some fillers and some great gems and gems are: Bet Your Life, Down On Your Knees Lay Me Down and Cum (one of the best funk rock/metal songs i've ever heard)
