King of the Fools Twisted Sister was 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 well as the lucrative MTV/pop audience. So for its follow-up, the band was faced with a question: Should they continue in a more pop-oriented direction or return to their early heavy metal? As the resulting album proved, 1985's Come Out and Play, the answer was 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 has been included on the Spitfire Records CD reissue in 1999. Strangely, the 1999 CD contained very muffled sonics. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide
