Dee Snider – Never Let The Bastards Wear You Down

Reviewed: 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.
