      If you buy one Twisted Sister album - get this one

      Under the Blade is Twisted Sister's debut album from 82 and it shows the New York rockers in quite a different light to their MTV years. I have a lot of time for Twisted Sister despite the hideousness of the whole band but in particular singer Dee and their later albums being mince more or less, they made some excellent stuff in their early days and actually showed talent which is quite the opposite from later albums.

      This is often forgotten or not known, this album is full of rocking tunes that really embrace hair metal at its best, the songs have a lot of rythm, power and plenty of great solos - the way the chorus in particular is belted out, give it that real arena anthem feel and even the fussiest of listeners will find themselves tapping their foot or about to sing along even if they don't want to.

      The title track in itself, is quite quirky and starts off with quite an experimental sound that you certainly won't hear on later albums, generally it's a pleasant mixture of hard, glam rock and hair metal but there's also Run for Your Life which starts off in an incredibly ballady way before turning in to a Queen like song.

      What You Don't Know (Sure Can Hurt You) and Bad Boys (of Rock N Roll) is definitely the best possible way to start the album, they are two powerhouses of songs and the best ones on there, they are incredibly catchy and some of the best songs made that year!

      1. What You Don't Know (Sure Can Hurt You)
      2. Bad Boys (Of Rock 'N' Roll)
      3. Run For Your Life
      4. Sin After Sin
      5. Shoot 'Em Down
      6. Destroyer
      7. Under The Blade
      8. Tear It Lose
      9. I'll Never Grow Up Now!
      10. Day Of The Rocker
