Anyone who likes metal or punk or any music thats fast, aggressive and angry needs Napalm Death! This album of there's does nothing to lessen their image and proves they can be progressive with their own sound without loosing any if the soul that makes their music awrsome!!! Highlights for me include: Work to Rule, Brink of Extinction, Time Waits For No Slave, A No Sided Argument.

Most bands mellow out as age creeps up on them, but not Napalm Bloody Death! This is the heaviest, most violent assault on the ear drums yet. I can only play it at half volume on my iPod, it's that feckin' loud! Buy, listen and enjoy. This sorts out the men from the boys where bands are concerned. Over.

If you've never given Napalm Death your time, then NOW is a good time to do so. Time Waits for No Slave has depth and moments of grandeur without ever losing it's format or path. A very compete album with some instantly accessible tracks. 8.6 rating.

Napalm Death have been playing incredibly loud and angry music since 1981, evolving from a essentially very noisy hardcore punk band, to influencing a thousand grindcore acts with their first few albums, then evolving into essentially a death metal band and later going off on an experimental tangent for a few albums until finally hitting their stride again and settling into a sound that has served them well for an entire decade. Over their career they have been true pioneers and released some incredibly memorable and influential songs and albums.

2009's Time Waits For No Slave, the band's thirteenth studio album overall, is the fifth album to feature their new modern style which they initially introduced with 2000's Enemy Of The Music Business (arguably the band's best ever album.) All the albums which followed have had a similar sound as a rule; The mixture of blasting, hardcore influences, death metal influences, groove metal influences and a modern twist, along with the one or two obligatory slow tracks are all still present on Time Waits For No Slave which delivers more quality metal as you have came to expect from Napalm Death.

This isn't an album of strong highlights and then weaker tracks, the whole album is pretty much consistent in every way from beginning to end, stylistically as well in quality. The only exceptions really being the slow songs, as on their previous two records, although which is something that harks back to their debut album Scum.

In truth, for some listeners the formula may be wearing a little thin now, after five albums of increasing perfection but therefor diminishing character, another 14-16 tracks of similar material isn't going to make your jaw drop and proclaim this the bet release ever.

This is the only flaw with the album however, and if you haven't heard all of the band's five most recent albums then it won't even be a flaw at all. This is top notch, utterly professional, heavy and fast extreme-metal from one of the entire metal genre's finest bands.

Napalm Death fans should all consider picking up a copy of Time Waits For No Slave; unless of course you thought that Smear Campaign was too similar to The Code' and so on. Otherwise this is a fine and virtually perfect set of Napalm Death songs and will give you more of what you want.

Napalm back again.They certainly are as grinding as ever on this,their thirteenth album.Another grab bag of grind excellence.
I love the fact that as they get older they show no signs of mellowing out and can still make most other grind bands sound like the Sylvanian Family on a summer picnic in the woods.
Napalm have always occupied a strange place in the 'metal' world,rubbing shoulders with many a nihilistic death metal band whilst sticking to their humanitarian punk roots and they have always been influenced by bands outside the grind/metal spectrum as well,such as young gods,swans,skinny puppy,my bloody valentine and sonic youth.Their music does bear some subtle differences that bear this out although it's hard to pinpoint exactly what.
I always wonder if they will adopt a more truly experimental approach though,not like their mid-period but just something really abstract and ground breaking.They have proved time and time again they can out grind all comers but they could also,on the odd track do something really different.I'm sure it would be good.
I just got the standard cd as the digipack was £4 extra for just two extra tracks.I miss the days when bands like this would have a pay no more than sticker on their records and one version.I mean £4 for two extra tracks when you're one of the few that still buy the cd.If those tracks are good tracks,doesn't the band want their fans to hear them?If record companies really want to survive they really should be a bit more generous to us.I heard there was a credit crunch happening or something.
