7. A Twisted Christmas (2006)

“If you are a metalhead who also celebrates Christmas you would be hard-pressed to find a better holiday album than this. Twisted Sister take these Christmas classics and gives them an awesome metal edge that (on paper) shouldn’t work but does. Highly recommended!”

6. Still Hungry (2006)

“Dee Snider can still sing his ass off, and the band is still solid as ever here. And the stripped down production really brings the music a lot closer to what these guys sounded like live (I saw them open for Maiden back in 1982, and they killed it). All the polishing that was done on the original album took away the edge that these guys had on You Can’t Stop Rock And Roll, and the original versions of Under The Blade. I have always appreciated a less polished, more realistic production…think Motorhead’s catalog…because the music exposes all the feeling of the players.”

5. Come Out and Play (1985)

“Great metal album from a great heavy metal band. I have been wanting to get this album for a long time and now I finally have a copy. I think this album sounds even better then Stay Hungry although I like that one just as much but it just doesn’t sound as hard as some of the tracks on this album. I think the band put a lot more effort and creativity into making this record. There isn’t anything I dislike about this record at all. I even like their cover.”

4. Love is For Suckers (1987)

“By now, it is common knowledge that this is not really a Twisted Sister album. Think of it as more of a Dee Snider solo project. According to stories on the internet, the only way the record company agreed to release this CD was to force it to be released under the Twisted Sister name. It is not clear if any other members of Twisted Sister actually played on this CD. To give you an idea of what the band thinks of this album, just try to find a Twisted Sister live show that contains any of these songs. The music on this CD sounds nothing like the Twisted Sister that created the Under The Blade, You Can’t Stop Rock and Roll, Stay Hungry, or Come Out and Play albums. The CD was produced by Beau Hill who produced many RATT albums and the sound of this CD is very similar to RATT in that it is geared to the pop style of metal which is a major departure from the other Sister releases. With all of that said, I still play the CD and somewhat enjoy the music.”

3. You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll (1983)

“This is a very serious Twisted a little less Sister album. First off lets start with Like a knife in the back, The power and the Glory, The Kid’s are Back, I’ve Had Enough, and You can’t stop Rock N Roll. All these are worth buying this album But there’s not a weak song on the album. There’s also 3 bonus tracks One Man Woman, Feel The Power, and my favorite Four Barrel Heart Of Love. Enough said buy the damn thing you won’t be sorry and you’ll make Dee Snider happy.”

2. Under the Blade (1982)

“Anyway, so the original version of “Under the Blade” is as raw & Primal as you can get, having a tiny budget to make the record had a lot to do with it. Full of fist pumping anthems about not really being apart of the mainstream & being constantly persecuted for it, which is why a lot of rock music fans could Identify with Twisted Sisters message. Extra tracks include the “Ruff Cutts” Ep which is demos of some of the tracks that would appear on “Under the Blade” (apart from “Leader of the pack”), but curiously these songs are more polished that the finished album You also get “Shoot em’ down” from their Reading show, great version but a little strange to have just one live song.”

1. Stay Hungry (1984)

“One of my main gateway drugs into the world of Heavy Metal, this Twisted Sister 1984 classic finally got the remaster it so badly needed and deserved. While the updated/remastered sound for the original album isn’t a monumental upgrade, definitely parts like the bass guitar & drums are now more in your face. The 17 track second disc though is the real treat, with demos while writing/recording Stay Hungry and some interesting treats left on the cutting room floor, as well as a new track recorded just for this re-release. This album is so, so, so much more than just “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock”, with tracks like “Burn In Hell”, “S.M.F.”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, and my favorite TS track ever “Horrorteria”, just making this a mid-80’s classic.”
