Album Review

Falling somewhere between the glam of T.Rex and the hard rock of Nazareth, Slade's finest moments came with arena rockers "Cum on Feel the Noize," "Mama Weer All Crazee Now," and "Gudbye t' Jayne," songs specifically written to be strong live numbers that would get kids up off their seats. Sladest is a "best-of" collection that includes all of the material that helped the band sell tons of records and fill arenas in the U.K. in the early '70s. When Slade stray from their successful formula of catchy guitar riffs and big choruses — with soft rockers like "Coz I Luv You" and "Pouk Hill" — they tend to fall flat.

Customer Reviews

Classic album from back in the day.

This album was released when Slade were at their peak. It's easy to forget but in 1973 Slade were one of the biggest bands in the UK if not the world.
I can remember buying this LP from Boots (yes the chemist) in Bristol and playing it to death. It's a sort of Best of album with a few new tracks thrown in. I remember the sleeve notes giving a brief description of each song, which was interesting reading. I still have the original LP. I'll have to dig it out and reward the sleeve notes again.
Have a listen to this almost forgotten classic album.

Comprised of singer/guitarist Noddy Holder (born Neville Holder, June 15, 1946 in Walsall, West Midlands, England), guitarist Dave Hill (born April 4, 1946, in...
