Who is Joe Kotas

"Scared to Dance should not really require a review. It should quite simply be in everyones collection or at the very least at the top of their shopping list. I was inspired to write this review after reading Joe Kotas's comment about no one ever having heard of the Skids. I don't know what age or nationality Mr Kotas is, but he is surely a cultural philistine.
As well as being one of the all time classic rock anthems of our time, Into the Valley, the opening track, has now been adopted by Sky Sports as their theme tune for Nationwide league football. Surely an indication of sorts that the Skids hold their own in mainstream music.
The title track follows and Stuart Adamsons immaculate guitar work still gives me chills after 23years of listening.
Every track creates an atmosphere that the listener cannot fail but to be caught up in. Stuarts "wall of sound" guitar interspersed with calculated and clinically executed riffs cannot fail to excite even the most reserved of listeners.
This collection is undoubtably one of those timeless masterpieces that will endure evermore.
Recorded when the band was in its youth, the album captures and conveys all the emotion and passion of the time.
Richard Jobsons vocal delivery is at the very least stirring and at best totally awesome.
Combined with an excellent rhythm section, giving real substance to the bands overall anthemic sound I cannot rate this work highly enough.
If you could only have one album then this is it.
If you don't have it, buy it now."

"Having been a fan of The Skids since 1978,this Album has to be up there with the all-time Punk albums from the same period.It stands out especially because of Stuart Adamson's brilliant and innovative Guitar riffs and Richard Jobson's Vocals.While thinking that Jobson wrote all the songs on this Album,an excellent piece of work is that of 'Charles',written by Adamson.It is amazing that this brilliant debut has remained largely unheard of in most modern-era Post-Punk circles."

"This is the Skids second best album. I believe their best is Joy which is only available on vinyl. The Skids were an amazing band, it's hard to believe nonone ever heard of them."
