Big Hits and Nasty Cuts: The Best of Twisted Sister

Rated 4/5 (80%) (9 Votes)

This is Twisted Sister's first greatest hits compilation, released a year after their last album Love is for Suckers. What makes this release stand out over others are two things: a) the song selection and b) the live performances found here. Although "Burn in Hell" and "S.M.F." are absent, Big Hits and Nasty Cuts is a perfect substitute for their discography making owning their other stuff almost useless (most of them are played in their concerts). The last 6 songs here are songs taken from a live performance at the Marquee in London. That is where we see Twisted Sister at their best, in a live setting. Dee Snider proves that he is an amazing frontman and the rest of the band is on fire as well. Also it is curious to see that they opened the show with the same song back then as they do now. Bottom line this is one of the best CD compilations out there, so if you don't have any material by them (as incredible as that might sound) this is the only material that you'll ever need.
