This is regarded as a metal classic not only because it features and was written by metallica`s Jason newsted but because it is what thrash was all about. It is faster than anything and has such a pounding aggressive bass sound and subtle mellow sections within the songs it will keep your attention right through from the pounding Hammerhead and Desecreater to the exellent and classical sounding title track.The metallica influence is there but the only thing to complain about is the sound recording quality but hey remember this was 1985/86 on a cheap budget so as a debut its cool.

Thrash metal by numbers perhaps? Frequent screaming vocals. Riffs freely borrowed from Maiden and Metallica? Using Metallica's first three albums as a template ? Oh, and while on the subject of Metallica--Guess which band F & J's bassist ended up with? Hell, there's even a song called Fade To Black on the record too.
Flotsam and Jetsam may have used every thrash metal trick in the book and followed it meticulously. This album does get a bit repetitive and samey after a while, but at least most of the songs are good. She Took An Axe is the best of the bunch and written about an infamous axe murderer (was it Lizzy Borden ? Not 100% sure 'bout that), while the title song has a good acoustic intro, and soon, quite naturally, speeds up.
Despite being quite popular back in the day, Flotsam & Jetsam were never going to become giants of thrash. Their songs were just too basic for that, so were forever destined to be a second division act, thou they managed to continue up to 1993 when they decided to call it a day.

This album has blown my mind,, and I'm very happy it has.. Pleasant surprise to find out that Jason Newsted ex Metallica,, co founded the band, played bass and wrote all the lyrics.. The singing in this album is insane,, highest notes you'll hear from a man... And if you're wondering whether to buy this album, listen to Desecrator.. All in all an album for true metalheads and anyone that appreciates well written and constructed music. :)

I bought this when it was first released and I forgot how good it was until recently when I heard a couple of tracks. I'm glad I have a chance to listen to this stuff again. Brings back old memories.

Fast and furious metal performed and sang with real urgency from the mid 80's, very distintive of the time but has stood up quite well against the advancing years. These guys were very young when this came out, very serious about what they were doing and put together an exceptional debut album with diverse subject matter with lyrics curteousy of Mr Newstead. Newstead was promptly nicked by Metallica, although the 2nd album without him, in my opinion still ranks well.

So, what of this album? Its exceptionally good, fast metal, chucks of twin guitar Maiden ( Fade to Black ), vintage Metallica ( acoustic intros to the title track and Der Fuhrer before the electric guitars kick in like chainsaws ) et al, nothing too much to disappoint you really if you like this scene, perhaps the vocal wails could be a tad tiresome to a few listeners but this is offset greatly by the ludicrously ambitious number of words crammed in to the lyrics in places.

It is obvious that this is recorded by a keen young band giving it their all - just check the DVD live performances. The DVD is a little throwaway, to be honest, looks to have been put together on a home PC, the content itself is also obviously old camcorder bits and pieces pliced together.

The remixed and remastered disc shines the album up really well as the original was a bit muddy. This is the version I will be listening to. The extra tracks are not startling and plainly show a fledgling band demoing but you wouldn't buy this for them alone would you?

Vintage thrashy metal done well, probably a 3 and a half stars for me.

This cd ain't bad! At times the songs tend to be a bit overlong - the title track for example - and can seem a little aimless, but great bass playing by Jason Newstead (of Metallica fame), lots of manic guitar solos and, at points, some hilarious high-pitched vocal shenanigans (check out the end of "she took an axe"). The drumming hasn't much in the way of personality but IS solid, and honestly some of the lyrics are actually a bit daft ("hammerhead" for example - could've been written by Beavis & Butthead really). On the whole though it's fast, furious and pretty much of it's time; It's OK! A fairly enjoyable listen worth chucking a couple of quid at. (But no more than a couple of quid!).

Historical album, I prefer No Place For Disgrace though.
