monster anthrax album,
By A Customer
This review is from: Stomp 442 (Audio CD)
The amount of attention shown by fans towards 'Sound of White Noise' is unbelievable because this clearly kicks its ass. More big riffs and better songs.
'Random Acts of Senseless Violence' just says it all really - the opening to the album is heavy and in-your-face. 'Fueled' follows and keeps up the pace a ferocity with its killer riff. 'King size' continues the trend and includes the killer line 'minimum effort, maximum gain!' - classic. Memorable lyrics like this make this and most of the other songs so much more memorable than material from their previous album. 'Riding Shotgun' is also very good making the opening 4 songs absolutely killer. 'Perpetual Motion', 'Nothing' and 'American Pompeii' arent quite as good, but still heavy enough to catch your attention. 'In a Zone' and 'Tester' are both stand out aswell. The closer 'Bare' is a good ballad (that's right, an anthrax ballad) but is ruined by the ending which doesn't quite fit.
Overall a very enjoyable heavy album by anthrax that should not be overlooked - why it recieves the very little credit it does is beyond me.
