Originally released back in 1995 now reissued via Suncity Records with 5 bonus tracks this album really showcases the wears of Kidd Skruff well. With a sound falling somewhere in between Bon Jovi and Skidrow, Kidd Skruff had all the right ingredients to make a huge impact, had it not been for the onslaught of the entire grunge movement.
Kidd Skruff started as a side project for then Lead Singer/Guitarist Jimmy Forest, and had he formed the band a few years earlier I truly believe that they could have been huge. Timing hey?
All the songs here show some great craftsmanship and excellent writing skills. It’s such a pity that the music world is so fickle, ohh well the world gets a second chance to hear the wonderful talents of Kidd Skruff thanks to this re-issue now.
The 5 bonus tracks are slightly more stripped down sound wise, a little heavier maybe, but still excellent all the same
