Stick It to Ya [Bonus Tracks]

by: Slaughter

Commercial hard rock bands were still immensely popular at the end of the 1980s, when Slaughter (named after lead singer Mark Slaughter) recorded its debut album, Stick It to Ya. Mining the same territory as "corporate" bands like Bon Jovi, Winger, and Warrant, Slaughter soared to the top of the charts and sold millions of albums. Slick and not terribly original, much of this material comes across as very contrived and calculated. Nonetheless, hook-laden tracks like "Up All Night," "She Wants More," and "Burnin' Bridges" are fairly catchy. But as hot as Slaughter was at the dawn of the '90s, its success would prove to be short-lived when alternative rock became the rage a few years later. [The album was remastered and reissued in 2003 with the addition of four bonus tracks: original demo versions of "Mad About You," "She Wants More," "Up All Night," and "Fly to the Angels."] ~ Alex Henderson
