5.0 out of 5 stars One dirty monster
This is a dirty, snarling monster of an album, the illigitimate son of Motorhead's attitude and the birth of thrash. Guitarist Dimebag does more with his guitar than many bands do with a two-guitar attack, with heavy riffs and deadly hooks.

Vocalist Phil Anselmo crawls filthy from the gutter with the sole intention of making your ears bleed with his diatribe...

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven template.
Pantera's - Far beyond driven is an album that I have always felt has been considerably overrated. The first three of the four songs on the album are iconic classics. "Strength beyond strength, 5 minutes alone and I'm Broken", are but contrasted by the averageness of "Becoming, Slaughtered, Use my third arm, throes of rejection"; and then there is the disasters of "Good...

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy, intence and agressive If you like slipknot get this., 14 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Far Beyond Driven (Audio CD)
Panteras third album is one of the heaviest they have ever done. ditching the ballads and soft melodys of earlier albums for crushing riffs and heavy drum beats. Phils Vocals give all of these 'nu metal' shouters a run for their money. if you like your metal heavy noisey and intense buy this now. Recomended Songs: Slaughtered, 5 minutes alone. i,m broken.

A classic album filled with the stuff to get the mosh pit going. Dimebag shines, Vinnie shines, Phil shines, the bassist (I can never remember his name) shines. It's just fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Angry and brutal - Pantera's second heaviest album, 1 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Far Beyond Driven (Audio CD)
This rocks! Fury and aggression pour out of the smoking speakers just as 'Strength Beyond Strength' roars into action. Thrash metal, heavy metal, death metal - whatever. It is damn good. Bruising sledgehammer riffs dominate the record. It's better than 'Vulgar Display of Power'. It's grinding and soulcrushing. However, there is a nice little cover of 'Planet Caravan' tagged on at the end, which is pleasant and soothing.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first Pantera Album!, 12 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Far Beyond Driven (Audio CD)
Quite simply put Far Beyond Driven is a great Metal album. What first attracted me to Pantera was their sceaming but rythmic vocal style mixed with REALLY awsome riffs, which, together, just kick ass.
The first song off this album gets you straight into the action followed by Becoming which is one of my favourites with great vocals. Then 5 minutes alone which is an outstanding track followed by (The best track in my opinion) I'm Broken, which is a great song with Chucking riffs and a jaw dropping solo. Next comes a downfall in the album (in my opinion) Good Friends And A Bottle Of Pills, which I think is the worst on the album, but the rest of the tracks (Slaughtered, Shedding Skin and Planet Caravan in particular) are very good.
I would recommend this album to anyone. Really good, REALLY heavy and a great listen.
P.S Dimebag Darrell can really kill his guitar
