5.0 out of 5 stars A huge return to form 30 Nov 2002
Format:Audio CD
When those Brummie legends Napalm Death (actually only two-fifths Brummie these days, but it's still how everybody thinks of them) left Earache Records after over a decade and eight studio albums, it was not a happy parting of the ways. The label accused the band of rushing out sub-standard material to get out of their deal as quickly as possible, and because of this these records were not selling well. The band accused the label of doing absolutely nothing to promote their product once it was released so there was no chance it would sell well anyway. It was a split of the most acrimonious kind.
In fact, it bothered the world's foremost grindcore band so much that they wrote a whole album about it. With songs like 'Thanks For Nothing', 'Can't Play, Won't Pay' and 'Vermin', virtually the whole album is a vitriolic attack on their former employers. It is something of a return to form for the band, whose last couple of albums on Earache were a bit weak to say the least. In fact, it is a return to the glory days of the early '90s when Napalm Death were the most extreme band in the world, and is their best album since the career best of 1994's 'Fear, Emptiness, Despair'. Fans of Johnny-Come-Lately bands like Slipknot or (God help us) Papa Roach should take a listen to this to witness a band who were putting the fear of God into the world of music whilst those bands were still at school, and can still wipe the floor with them today. Superb. And the new album's even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Napalm Death- Enemy Of The music Business 7 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
Before this, I only had Harmony Corruption, Scum, and Leaders Not Followers to go on for Napalm Death, but there reputation always precede them.
I heard a few of the new songs on various radio programs, and covermounted CD's, and I must say that this is a welcome return to form for them.
The last couple of albums have had a slight problem of not being brutal enough, but this was sorted with this, their first full album for Dreamcatcher. The riffs are back to the glory day's of their youth, with lots of fast brutal notes, but it still shows that they have matured, as they have a decent level of technicality to them that really makes them that much better then anyone else.
Jesse and Mitch are both excellent guitarists, and this is shown by the sheer weight and impact of the twin assault, even though there are no solos (but that's part of what makes them a grind band), and Shanes bass, follows underneath with that all important anchor link between the guitars and the drums, and this lets the 2 guitarists flow into higher notes, while the drums pound along in varying styles, and not just all blast, but with some excellently timed beats that also ollow the main riff of the song. Add to that the wonderful growl of Barney, with just a little screm thrown in, and the beast that is Napalm Death showcaese exactly why it's reputation precedes it so readily, even after 10 years.
The lyrics, in typical napalm style, cover a lot of politiacl themes, as well as a few rants at people in the music bizz (Earache maybe??)
The bonus track at the end has to be heard to be believed, and shows that, as well as making an excellent return to form, they're enjoying it too!
Possibly the best album I'm going to hear all 2000

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a grind great grindcore that every metal fan should own. It is suprisingly melodic, before I heard any of Napalm Death's songs I thought they were just another grindcore band that just created pointless noise.
I read some of the reviews of this album and all of them gave it 5 stars! So I decided to take a chance and buy it. When I put it on my C.D player I was blown away buy the very heavy yet melodic riffs.
The famous blast beats that napalm death were renowned for are very effectivly used. Barney's vocals are extremely angry yet they also have some humour in them. Before I bought this album I couldn't stand screamed vocals but this changed me forever. This album grows on you every time you listen to it. There is not a bad song on the album. I like every one of the 14 tracks. as the album progresses the tracks just get better and better.
My favouite tracks are probably contitutional hell, neccessary evil, mechanics of deciet and can't plat won't pay. Can't play won't pay is funny as hell because N.D have a massive go at earache. I would give every track on the album at least 9 out of ten.
Anyone who likes metal should own this album. If you don't you should be ashamed of yourselves. I now love grindcore and I don't know how i've lived without it. Just take my word for it and buy this album now!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen if you like... 19 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
I heard about Napalm Death from a friend whose music taste is getting progressively heavier. If you have started out Metal with bands like RATM and Soundgarden (Audioslave don't count), then found you like NIN, and have recently found that despite liking loud Tribal Thrash such as Sepultura or Soulfly, it just doesn't do it for you, then Napalm Death is the next step up.
It works from System of a Down as well.
From the first note of "Taste the Poison" you know what you've got yourself into. From being used to "Roots, Bloody Roots" or "Ambush" on full blast, I had to halve the volume at first to get into Grindcore. The music is loud, fast and makes you want to jump around and break stuff with a manic grin on your face. Just don't headbang. You'll get whiplash.
If you like your bands whose lyrics you have to read whilst listening to the track to discipher the words, this is for you.
Although the music is argued an attack on society, it is much more fun to listen to than other political bands, as the lyrics are scattered and probably written on speed. The point is, Napalm Death are both good for a giggle and for a serious rant.
