So I'm thinkin' "geez, I haven't done a poll in a while, what band should I do this time?" and I just happen to be listening to Twisted Sister's UNDER THE BLADE. I don't think they've ever been polled thus far, so here we go. Which of TS' studio albums is your favorite?

 

Though I love most of their catalog (I'm a little "iffy" on COME OUT AND PLAY and LOVE IS FOR SUCKERS...both have a few highlight tracks but are definitely not solid all the way through), I'd have to go with YOU CAN'T STOP ROCK N ROLL as my #1 favorite, followed closely by STAY HUNGRY and the aforementioned UNDER THE BLADE in the #2 and #3 slots.

 

Play it loud mutha!! :lol:

I went with "You can't stop Rock n Roll".

 

Great band and very underrated. The first 3 records are awesome IMO and "Come out and Play" would be up there if it wasn't for their stupid choice to record 'Leader of the Pack', but the rest of the album kicks ass. I can do without "Love is for Suckers", it does have a few good songs like the title track and 'Wake up the Sleeping Giant' but the rest of it was a sad attempt to try to follow in the footsteps of Poison and Motley Crue.

I'm going against the grain and picking "Love Is For Suckers". I absolutely love that kickass album. "Stay Hungry" is definitely right there too.

I went with Stay Hungry. Man, I listened to it alot back in the day. Not so much anymore. Not sure why but I just don't. You Can't Stop R&R is a damn close second.

I don't mean to be rude, but I think these guys were absolute shit. I've owned all these albums, sometimes for long periods, but only 'Love is for suckers' remains... and that's more out of pity than anything else. I do like 'Hot love' and the title track, but this band always just seemed so shitty to me. Sorry guys, to each their own... but these guys are definately not for me. :(

Your opinion on this matter doesn't count due to the fact that you like Def Leppard's "X". :P

I'll second that. Love Is For Suckers smokes, and although they have several albums that may be consistantly stronger, this album has a lot of sentimental value since it was one of the few tapes that seemed to be in my car constantly while I was in high school.

I understand your point. If I'm upholding my image I only comment on great albums like 'X' and I really shouldn't be wasting my time handing out opinions on trash like Twisted Sister. :P

Twisted Sister is not trash. :axe:

 

Go back to day dreaming about George from Grey's Anatomy, and leave the opinions on music to the professionals. Besides you don't even play an instrument so your opinion doesn't matter. ;)

:lol: You just pretty much arranged a meeting with me in an abandoned town out west. I'll see you at sundown... cousin. I'll play your face like a keyboard and then we'll see who can't play an instrument. :D

Of course I do mate. The reference to Sam. I'm with you, cousin. But don't think that gets you out of our showdown. I'll be there with a full holster (like I carry daily)... and a gat in my hand.

And now back to the poll question.... Great poll... I'm going with "Under The Blade" on this one. I'm a sucker for releases that sound like a band is hungry... and that is exactly what "Under The Blade" sounds like. Raw. aggressive and hungry. :banger:

I pulled out my "Ruff Cuts" EP the other day while browsing thru the old vinyl...and it sounded great. I haven't any of their albums though...although I know for sure I had Under the Blade...wonder what happened to it.

Well this made Me think damnit..*chuckles*

 

But I went with Still Hungry.. Just cause the remixed version of the CLASSIC Stay Hungry blew Me the FUCK away..*G*

 

Not that I don't like Under the Blade or you Can't Stop Rock and Roll, those would be #s 2 and 3 respectively.....

 

Even Come Out and Play had it's moments... Love is For Suckers?? Maybe one or two decent tracks, but the rest?? Yech..*L*

Not one of my favorite bands, but I do like "Love is for Suckers" and "Stay Hungry," in that order. A lot of people hated "Love is for Suckers" because of the blatant attempt at commercial appeal, but that is precisely why I like it--they went for the "bigger is better" approach, delivering big guitars, big hooks, big choruses, big vocals, big production...all things I love in my hard rock/metal.

 

As an amusing (to me, anyway) sidenote, when I was about 15 or 16, I had the youth pastor at my church totally convinced that the song "Burn in Hell" off the "Stay Hungry" album was a Christian rock song. I had the cassette single and he actually played it several times during our Friday night youth groups, until someone narced me out and told him who the song was by. Man, did I get in trouble...
