This is thier best so far,
This review is from: America's Volume Dealer (Audio CD)
I have read reviews on other sites that IMO just do not give this the justice that is deserves. Okay it is not their heaviest album. I accept that it is not just your normal mix of hard rock and metal, but it is still very, very good. Very varied, with exceptional musicianship.
This in in my top 20 albums of all time. It has variety and I completely disagree with the other 5 star reviewers as to what are the best tracks, but perhaps that means it is even better than I thought as each song is for somebody.
An album that gets played a lot (at home) from a band that you never hear on the airways.
IMO nothing that Down ever did comes close to this.
Just go for it. Make up you own mind as to what stands out as very good (hint: it will be most of it).
