Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Bored at work and was just wondering if anyone ever reads this?, 31 Jan. 2008
This review is from: We've Come for You All (Audio CD)
I've been listening to this album again recently. I bought it in 2003 when it was first released and fell in love with it immediately. It probably hasn't been played much over the last 2 years, but it's been promoted back to the ipod and given me an instant recollection of why i love it so much.

There is a tinge of sadness to this album though, because it's the last original to include John Bush. The man's vocals hit perfectly halfway between aggression and melody. I guess you could say that about the album too. Some of it makes you wanna beat the crap out of something (What Doesn't Die), some of it brings tears to your eyes (Safehome), some of it can make you get out of bed in the morning when nothing else can (Cadillac Rock Box). For me, this is one of Anthrax's top three albums, and just for the record, i like their 80's output just as much as i like everything they DID with John Bush.

Did?? You see. That's the problem. He's no longer the Anthrax singer anymore. I think that's an absolute travesty. I like all the guys in Anthrax, they seem really grounded and funny, and they've made kick ass music for 25 years. But John Bush gave them another dimension and really added emotion that was probably lacking on their Belladonna releases which were; Heavy? Yes. Good? Of course. But emotional? No.

Thrash has been around for a while now, and people talk a lot these days of 'Classic lineups'. I guess most people consider 'Among the Living' as the Anthrax classic. I offer an alternative viewpoint, the lineup on this album is the best, and because the chemistry is so great between the guys, the music goes from good, to great. When 5 musicians can play as exceptional as Anthrax, the music goes from great, to exceptional.

If you have this album already, most of you will know what i'm talking about. If you don't, have a listen and join me in mourning the loss of John Bush from Anthrax. I hear he is doing voiceover commercials for Burger King now. John, please reincarnate to your rightful place. Front of the stage with Anthrax.
