4.0 out of 5 stars Almost brilliant, 21 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Greater of Two Evils (Audio CD)
I wanted to love this - I really did. On paper it looked amazing. John Bush would stamp his own authority onto songs sung by the previous Anthrax vocalists. The debut LP from Anthrax, Fistful Of Metal is a great start for a young band, all the songs are great and vocalist Neil Turbin had an incredible capacity for hitting the high notes. When listening to this CD I find myself wishing Bush could hit those notes too. The other tracks are reworks from Spreading the Disease, Among The Living and State of Euphoria. Seeing as Bush is a million times more competant than Joey Belladonna, most of these songs are an improvement on the originals. Still don't understand what people see in Among The Living, and a couple of the songs covered from that release remain as awful as ever, including the title track itself. Have to admit that Indians is a vast improvement. So - some good some not so good. All the musicianship is incredible, its just that fans of the original songs, whilst appreciating the revamped versions might still prefer the originals. Sad too that this should be John Bush's swan song as I doubt he'll perform with the band again.

'Still don't understand what people see in Among The Living' - I totally agree with this comment, despite being a huge Anthrax fan myself during this era. I think press hype and impressionable teenagers were to blame. Joey was touted in the press back then as a great 'thrash singer' clearly, years on, looking back, he was not. I think that many people got so into Anthrax back then (me included) on the back of their 'comic book' image, the shorts, the skateboards, the Judge Dread and Steven King references. I entered the hype during the Spreading the Discease album after hearing Medusa on the Friday Rock Show, this isn't a bad album and better than ATL but not as good as their later stuff. The actual music was still tight but perhaps no better than other bands of the time which didn't make it. Bush by comparison is a fine vocalist and perfectly compliments the music. Sound of White noise being a particular fave of mine.
