State Of Mediocrity
on 18 May 2003
Anthrax, while not as popular as fellow thrashers Metallica & Slayer, are among the finest speed metal bands you are ever likely to here. This album spaned some classis tracks which helped 'Thrax win over their enormous fanbase,(ie-"AntiSocial","Make Me Laugh","Out Of Sight, Out Of mind" & "Misery Loves Company") but for the most part this album does not display the capabilities of Anthrax, the first handful of songs go well & the middle portion of the album is decent, but by the time you've reached the closing few songs of the record it's all began to sag a bit, like a bottle of soda gone flat.
While it can be bought off the strength of the classic tracks I mentioned previously,especially "Anti-Social" which is a metal classic in it's own right, a newcomer to Anthrax would be advised to check out an Anthrax compilation rather than shell out for this harrowingly average record.
