SKID ROW – Revolutions Per Minute [Skid Row Records 2021 reissue]

Sometimes planets crash, and this is the case with SKID ROW‘s last full length album “Revolutions Per Minute“. SKID ROW has recovered the rights of the album from SPV/Steamhammer Records, and reissued ”Revolutions Per Minute” by themselves (via Skid Row Records) last Friday 25, 2021.
Ironically, one day after, Saturday 26, singer Johnny Solinger died at the age of 55 due to liver failure.
Solinger joined SKID ROW when it reformed in 1999 following a three-year hiatus, replacing Sebastian Bach. He was a member of SKID ROW from 1999 to 2015, and appeared on the “Thickskin” and “Revolutions Per Minute” albums, as well as the “United World Rebellion” and “Rise Of The Damnation Army” EPs.
While renowned Michael Wagener – who co-produced the band’s celebrated second album ‘Slave to the Grind’ – returned to produce “Revolutions Per Minute”, the album received generally negative reviews.
Now 2021, fifteen years after its original release, and listening to it again, we can say “Revolutions Per Minute” isn’t a bad album at all, you just need to appreciate it as a ‘different SKID ROW’.
The key to re-discover “Revolutions Per Minute” is quite simple; don’t think…
