How does one top such a feat? Can it be topped?
Luckily for Bach, while the answer is no, this album does not top Angel Down, it does manage to hold its ground on an equal front.
Kicking & Screaming literally does just that as the title track launches the album into solid arrangement of new and old sounding rock tunes. Bach sounds better and more comfortable here this time around and quite possibly sounds the best he’s ever sounded.
I keep reading about Bach being asked about joining back up with Skid Row, and the truth is that he doesn’t need them. Back has always been the talent and without him, Skid Row is nothing more than a mediocre cover band.
Bach’s voice sounds better than ever and with the solid work found in these two albums, he should have a solid future ahead of him as a solo artist. Skid Row is the past and Bach is the future, people need to get over it and move on.
Album Rating: 4 / 5
