If Metallica and Slayer invented speed metal, Anthrax brought it to the East Coast and imbued it with the attitude and excitement of New York hardcore. Among The Living is their finest hour--a roaring, adrenaline-pumped collection of flailing beats, precise, razor-edged riffs and shout-along refrains. Unlike most full-throttle metal vocalists of the era, Joey Belladonna chose to sing as well as shout, giving songs such as "Among The Living", "Indians" and "Efilnikcufecin" ("nice fuckin' life" spelled backwards) a decided melodic edge. Yet Scott Ian and Dan Spitz's buzz saw guitar flurries, and Charlie Benante's insistent drumming, prevented the songs from ever degenerating into the run-of-the-mill heavy metal they so despised. --Jon Wiederhorn

Along with Metallica, Anthrax were one of the first thrash bands I got into back in the early eighties and Among the Living is a bona-fida thrash classic, and easily their best album. Quite simply, along with Metallica's 'Puppets' it is the best thrash album ever released, and should be in every lover of Metal's collection. From the opening chords of the title track the groove grabs hold and doesn't release it's grip until the very end. There are no filler tracks here, each one is a mini masterpiece. The obvious standouts are of course the title track, Caught in a Mosh, I Am the Law and the moshtastic Indians. This re-mastered edition is worth every penny, and sounds so much better than the original cd release. The music really thumps and is much more in line with my old vinyl copy.
The bonus tracks aren't that special, but the bonus live dvd is great. The full live show from the Odeon back on the Among the Living tour. I was fortunate enough to be at the show, and had worn out my old vhs copy of this, so it was a welcome addition to the package. The transfer is not great, but still encapsulates what Anthrax were all about back in the day, and why they were the best and most entertaining live band around back then. Awesome.
Unfortunately, whilst their future releases have all been pretty good, they never again managed to capture this kind of form and consistency. But, with Among the Living, for a while there, they were kings of the thrash world.
Essential purchase.

This album I first heard when I was into Metal at the end of the eighties. It stood out from most metal albums, listening to it now I can see why. It still sounds as great as ever. Full of furious riffs, a dirty bass and great drums. With Joey Belladonna screaming his heart out on top. But above all its got the tunes, the songs are a cut above anything else ive heard from anthrax and hardly any other metal band of that era. 'Indians', 'NFL efilnikufecin', and 'Imitation of life' stand out as the strongest tracks but they're all brilliant. A good starting point for anyone interested in Anthrax or thrash metal in general.

Love Anthrax. This was the CD that got me into thrash metal when I was 15. Im 43 now and still bloody love it. Stage diving days are over :-). Caught in a mosh and I am the law still float my boat as much. Great to see the concert that I had on VHS!! Great memories that quite frankly Im not ashamed to say I will never 'grow out' of this music. Love it.

Arguably Anthrax's greatest moment - this album spits and snarls its way into your brain leaving you screaming,chanting and moshing your way from one unforgettable track to the next.Breakneck speeds from both guitar and rhythm sections never waver and the sheer musicianship of the band shines through.'Caught in a mosh' just about says it all.

Despite what you think or feel about this album, like Metallica's Master of Puppets, Among the Living is always going to be hailed as the pinnacle, the essence of all Anthrax is. And it's kind of true (if a little insulting), despite the fact that their best album lay a few years away. But Among the Living is a truly powerful and essential album.

The title track is an astounding monster that is possibly one of the best tracks they've produced. 'Caught in a Mosh' is a thrash classic, and very punky. 'I Am the Law'. What can I say? Judge Dredd. Chunky riffs. Job done. 'Efilnikufesin' - another thrash classic. 'Skeletons in the Closet' is not quite as good but only by a hair. 'Indians' is one of my personal favourites. Catchy, riffy and heavy. As is 'One World' and 'ADI' - the latter being a huge behemoth of a track that should get more recognition. The closer is just the best closer of a thrash album ever - bar perhaps a couple from Metallica(!).

It's not just great, it's wordlosingly great.

The Deluxe Edition of Among The Living has been remastered so it'll naturally sound a little louder in your CD player. What is there to say about it that hasn't already been said? A classic thrash album, one of the ten best ever produced. Full of concert staples even now - 'Indians', thrash anthem 'Caught In A Mosh', 'I Am The Law', 'NFL' ... melodic thrash helped considerably by Belladonna's vocal range, ably assisted by powerhouse drummer Benante, bassist Bello and the Dan Spitz/Scott Ian guitar partnership. This special edition has a few more cuts of the tracks ... although they're for completists only. There's a live version of I am the Law (previously released as the b-side on I'm the Man 12 inch) and oddball 'classic', 'Bud E Love Bomb and Satan's Lounge Band'.
The extra disc is a DVD of nicef*ckinvideo although it's picture quality betrays it's video origins. It's a London concert from 1987 heavily featuring ATL material. There are more extended glossy sleeve notes, at least, they're more than the original CD's notes ... there's an introduction by Brian Posehn and there are more band photo's. I'd give the album 5 stars but I've reviewed the package as a whole which is why I gave four stars. I got this for a fiver on Amazon. It's well worth that although I'm not sure I'd pay much more ... if you've already got it, think twice before paying a tenner for it.
