Great album like all the others, love all Death albums, can listening to it over and over and of course the art cover is awesome.
Just from listening to Chuck's voice it chill my bones and make me want to sing the lyrics with him,
and of course the instruments are awesome, what makes the unique sound.
Top songs are: 'Living Monstrosity', 'Defensive Personalities', 'Altering the Future', 'Spiritual Healing' but really all the tracks are great.
Highly recommended to all death and thrash metal fans and everyone who appreciate good music.

This album became an outstanding one for many people as i've gone through all the articles and reviews about it. Feels to me they just struggle to understand it. Chuck had the great musicians yet again. I cannot help it but i have to mention James Murphy who replaced Rick Rozz on guitars and let me say James is much more gifted than Rick. This is actually one of the first three albums that are also often called brutal albums by Death. So this is the last one from the brutal era and in my opinion people call it outstanding 'cause Chuck experimented more with the lyrics. He made a right decision to push it all forward instead of writing the lyrics based on low budget horror films etc. that was done by the other bands. That is what made him and all the band's music outstanding! I just love the sound of the album. guitar work is pretty fast and precise, solos are great and sound pretty hard to play. Both Chuck and James use tremolo picking to play the solos. For those who don't know let me explain what tremolo means- it's using the technique of picking the strings with extremely fast intensity. So they both use tremolo picking to play the solos instead of pull-offs and hammer-ons which people must have got bored of by the time. This album is a "milestone" in Death's sound, this album actually defined the sound of the band that was always singlehandedly led by Chuck and nobody else but him as a main lyricist and genius songwriter. That is why this album appears to be a breakpoint and the biggest step forward in defining the sound. Once you play it you will want to play it over and over again. The song compositions are very catchy. Can't help it but i need to mention Living monstrosity as an example of Chuck growing musicianship and making reality to be a part of lyrics where living monstrosity is actually a child that was born to a mum addicted to cocaine. What you might find a bit disappointing is the sound of drums but don't get confused by the other reviews drums might sound monotonous but actually they match the music. If you are a fan of proper and true death metal this is another essential one to your collection. So do not hesitate and go for it- get it!!! Support true death metal!

this was always my least favourite Death album. i greatly disliked the production or was it the mastering?

this remastered edition has brought something special to this album and i have listened to it everyday since its arrival. now this album makes sense. it is a fine balance between the earlier "brutality" and the later technicality.

all the elements sound good from the riffs and solos, through the gold of terry butler's bass and bill andrews' drums, to the vocals.

i wish my original copy back in the early 90's had sounded this good.

as a huge death/Schuldiner fan the bonus discs are a pleasure. to gain an insight into the development of the songs is a real thrill.

i sincerely recommend this remastered package.

When you buy a Death CD, you expect the best and that's exactly what you get, probably the greatest Death Metal band ever.
