We Are The Ones is a complete transformation from ‘rock and roller’ to ‘radio friendly’ or contemporary rocker. One must approach We Are The Ones without any preconceived notions because after all; it’s not a Twisted Sister, Widowmaker or a Dee solo effort like any other before it. The production is punchy and there’s a lot of emphasis on the choruses and hooks. Dee Snider himself sounds spectacular on this recording. There’s no question this is the handy work of Grammy Award winning Damon Ranger who serves as album producer and songwriter for the majority of the material on the album. Ranger was the mastermind who pitched the idea to Snider to record a more ‘current’ sounding effort.
