Twisted Sister were left in a strange position after the massive breakthrough success of their 1984 album, Stay Hungry. While the album contained more of a pop edge than their more raw preceding albums Under the Blade and You Can't Stop Rock n' Roll, the heavy metal masses worldwide still embraced the album, as did the the lucrative MTV/pop audience. So for its follow-up, the band was faced with a question: whether to continue in a more pop-oriented direction or return to its early heavy metal. As the resulting album, 1985's Come Out and Play, proved, the band pursued a little bit of both. Behind the boards was Scorpions/Accept producer Dieter Dierks, and the compositions ...

While the album contained more of a pop edge than their more raw preceding albums Under the Blade and You Can't Stop Rock n' Roll, the heavy metal masses worldwide still embraced the album, as did the the lucrative MTV/pop audience. So for its follow-up, the band was faced with a question: whether to continue in a more pop-oriented direction or return to its early heavy metal. As the resulting album, 1985's Come Out and Play, proved, the band pursued a little bit of both. Behind the boards was Scorpions/Accept producer Dieter Dierks, and the compositions alternated between the ambitious the title track, obvious ready-for-radio tracks a cover of "Leader of the Pack," "Be Chrool to Your Scuel", and songs custom-made for headbangers "The Fire Still Burns," "Kill or Be Killed". The aforementioned "Be Chrool to Your Scuel" contained such musical guests as Alice Cooper, Billy Joel, Clarence Clemons, and Brian Setzer, for which a humorous video was filmed, and ultimately banned by MTV. And although the album was certified gold shortly after its release, it soon slid from sight -- eventually leading to Twisted Sister's demise a few years later. When originally released on Atlantic, the cassette version of Come Out and Play included a bonus track, "King of the Fools," which was included on the Spitfire Records CD reissue in 1999. Strangely, the 1999 CD contained very muffled sonics.

    The Demise of Twisted Sister

    After their success of STAY HUNGRY the pressure was on for another great album. Although Twisted Sister came through with an album as good as STAY HUNGRY, they made a few mistakes in the marketing of COME OUT AND PLAY. They did a cover song, even worse it was a ''love'' song. As if this wasn't bad enough, they released it as single, then to make matters worse, it was the first single released from the album. Unfortunatly, this is the first and probably only impession they made on most of thier fans. If you can get over that and listen to the rest of the album, it is as good as their previous albums. Then the sisters and to give themselves the final bullet that killed thier career. LOVE IS FOR SUCKERS came out with mostly love songs on it. They built thier careers on having ''anti-social anthems'' then changed thier format to ballads. Dee Snyder then came back to the scene with a new band caled WIDOWMAKER. It was a very good album, if you don't listen to the ballads.
