Dee Snider
Never Let The Bastards Wear You Down
September 2000
Released: 2000, Koch Records
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Keith McDonald

This may be Dee's last album, according to Dee. Now, it's not a new studio album with material written specifically for it. What it is is a collection of songs written during his Twisted Sister / Widowmaker / Desperado days that never made it on any album. It isn't some throwaway songs that Dee is cashing in on, but a collection of well written songs. Opening with Hard Core, a tribute to Lemmy who helped Twisted Sister in the U.K. has a Motorhead feel to it. Call My Name is a more radio ready song that has the Twisted Sister feel to it with hooks and good harmonies. There's Desperado from his project with Bernie Torme that never saw the light of day. The rest of the album is solid with the tracks Cry You A Rainbow, Sometimes You Win and Ride Through This which is dedicated to his wife Suzette. There is also a cover of The Wanderer which is pretty decent. This project also includes ex-Twisted drummer A.J. Pero which is a nice nostalgic move and is well produced.

Dee Snider
Never Let The Bastards Wear You Down
November 2000
Released: 2000, Koch Records
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Pete

One of the greatest frontmen of the 80's (and probably of all time) has put an end to his music career. Aside from a Twisted Sister reunion rumored to happen, Dee Snider is going to be concentrating on other projects in his career, as movies, etc. To close the music chapter, he has released this disc featuring unreleased material from past projects such as Widowmaker and Desperado. Opener "Hardcore", dedication to Motorhead's Lemmy, bursts out of the gate, all double kicks and balls out vocals. No shortage of anthems either, as shown in tracks "Our Voice Will Be Heard" and "Isn't It Time." "Cry You A Rainbow" has the makings of a hit, with its warm chorus and catchy hook. Damn, this guy can write the type of melody line and chorus that can stay with you for days. There's also filler here, as in tracks "Call My Name" (with it's repetitive chorus) and a cover of Dion's "The Wanderer" (Yes, THAT 60’s/70’s song).



Sure it sounds 80's, but that's the fun of it. As for a final chapter, it leaves me wanting more. C'mon Dee, there's gotta be more material lurking around in the vaults!
