5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent late 80's thrash 18 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
Acid reign mix their unique thrash/ punk style to create a whole new genre, theres no other band like acid reign. the highlights of this album are definetly the slow starting and creepy 'life in forms' which picks up a heavy punk sound. 'goddess' with its instant fast tremolo picking and guitar distortion is like being hit by an out of control bus speeding along at over 100mph.
As for 'motherly love' suspended sentence' and 'lambs to slaughter' they are too good to describe, the band has such a tight sound at this point that i do belive this could be one of the greatest thrash albums of all time. As their later albums (obnoxious and the worst of acid reign) showed the bands unique style, nothing can beat this album for intensity and variety

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the Fear! 10 Dec 2007
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Acid Reign's 2nd album 'Obnoxious' is a truly fantastic album, but nothing can quite beat the power of the debut 'The Fear'. Never mind 'Best British thrash album of all time', this is a serious competitor for 'Best thrash album ever', as it knocks the socks off 99% of bigger selling US acts of the time. Unfairly dismissed as a comedy band by some and lumped in with Lawnmower Deth and the like, in actuality once you get past the opening comedy fluff of the 25 second intro (which, despite whatever Amazon might say DOESN'T feature Ringo Starr!) it's a whirlwind of head-snapping riffing of full intensity - thrash songs that combine catchy hooks with killer riffs, and even the odd doomy moment (guitarist Gaz would leave after this album to form Cathedral).
The bonus tracks from the predeeding 'Moshkinstein' are a little more rough and ready, and the production features one of the buzziest guitar tones known to man, but the likes of 'Motherly Love' show early signs of the band's genius. The only downside is instrumental 'Freedom of Speech' isn't included on this CD set, so you'll need to track down the original vinyl for that.
You may well find that this CD is long-out of print and costs a bomb to get hold of, but if you love thrash metal you NEED this album, as it may well be the best of them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great band in their day 3 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
why this raw little band never got bigger is a mystery, like many talented UK metal acts they eventually dissapeared but left a legacy non the less

a raw almost punky at times sound but catchy & original, always loved the natural vocals and bass sound

don't pay 20 for it though as i think the CD's are being re-released and no doubt re-mastered, for old school metallers this is a must, seen them live in glasgows rooftops back in the 80's, awesome

5.0 out of 5 stars Applecore UK forever 15 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
One of the most underated albums of it's time, along with Holy Terror's 'Mind Wars' and never too far away from my stereo after all these years. Better than Master of Puppets by a long yard. That's praise enough.
