5.0 out of 5 stars immense immense album 23 Jan 2010
By fgtrejo
Format:Audio CD
Another fantastic album from Destruction, minus the eternally poor decision of the My Sharona cover. Don't be fooled by this folly however, the rest of the album is unanimously excellent and is about as good a slice of pre-90s thrash as you're going to find - it's pure thrash, but with the riffs and composition Sodom and Kreator have often lacked in sacrificing coherence for speed; when it comes to the big teutonic 3, Destruction have always ruled the roost. It's nearly impossible to decide whether Cracked Brain or its predecessor Release from Agony is the better of the 2, which is an impressive feat considering the strength of the latter. If you're looking for the best way to spend your money, buy Cracked Brain. If you're looking for an even better way, buy everything by Destruction up to this point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Destruction at its finest despite critics 12 Dec 2002
By Jose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When Destruction lost its original bassist/singer Schmier due to internal conflicts, everyone thought Destruction was, well, 'destroyed'. When this album came out, it was given some unfairly low scores just because 'it wasn't the same'.

I frankly do like and recommend this album, and while Andre Grieder (Schmier's replacement) has a raspier singing style, I find it fits this CD perfectly. Every thing that metalheads like about Destruction is here. Brilliant guitar riffs and twin leads a la Iron Maiden, heavy pounding drumming, and solid music structure.

Yes, some of their lyrics sound rather cartoonish and funny, since some words are put on their songs just so that they rhyme with each other; for those who don't know, they are from Germany and their English has been better than average, but never perfect. The other thing that bothers me about this album is that the last two tracks ("No Need To Justify" and "When Your Mind Was Free"), while not bad, both are mid-paced and sound like each other. They should have shuffled them differently, so that we wouldn't have 2 similar tracks in a row.

However, taking these facts out of the picture, there is no denying that they have kept their musical integrity and intensity INTACT, unlike a certain band that starts with an 'M' that has 'Load-ed' and 'Reload-ed' fans with toned down, generic music that screams 'sellouts'(hint...they are lawsuit-happy).

I highly recommend this album for the first-timer, as well as for the veteran Destruction fan. Tracks to check out: "Cracked Brain", "Frustrated", "Die a Day Before You're Born", and a great, faster cover of The Dickies' "My Sharona".

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their best!!! 29 Dec 2005
By critico constructivo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is, in my opinion, the best album by the thrasher masters Destruction. The musicianship is over the limit here. Incredible twin harmony guitars, with memorable riffs, and no talk about the solos, very melodic. The vocals are great too, but obviously, is not Schemier, but fit very well in the genre. Try a spin on this, to a great thrashing madness!!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Different vocalist 17 May 2014
By Jonas Snell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This a really cool album, F***in' rocks:) The song "cracked brain" would be my favorite from this one. The cover they do of "my sharona" was nice, a little funny to see them choose that song to cover. My suggestion... Buy this album, crank up your stereo, then when your in the zone with what your hearing just shout F*** YEA after the first 10 seconds of each song while your listening through it:) ROCK ON !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shamelessly Underrated 18 Jun 2004
By C. Garces - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album was bashed a lot when it first came out in 1990 (I think). Legendery vocalist/bassist Schmier left and everyone automatically assumed that this album would be sub standard. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The guitar solos sound so fantastic, some of today's so called Heavy Metal guitar players could really get some lessons from these guys. This is a THRASH album!!! "Cracked Brain", "Time Must End" and "No Need To Justify" are some of the best songs the thrash genre has to offer. Its a shame that the songs on this album are hardly ever played live or anything because they are really quality songs. The guitar is the most impressing aspect of "Cracked Brain", so fast and melodic, they just dont make music like this anymore, a real shame. Shmiers replacement does an amazing job at the vocals, he even has a similar air to Schmiers style, so its nothing like a huge change, great gem this one, pick it up!!!!
