2.0 out of 5 stars Not the classic they say it is, 13 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Among The Living (Audio CD)
Anthrax? Hmm - Bought their first LP on vinyl 23 years ago when I was 19. It was fast and energetic with some great tunes. A couple of years later, with a couple of personnel changes, Anthrax released Spreading The Disease and they joined the "elite four" at the top of the thrash spectrum. They supported Metallica on the 'Puppets tour in the UK and I thought they were excellent. Then came Among The Living... I Am the Law had whetted the apetite but the LP (as it was then) was disappointing. Belladonna's vocals never seemed to suit the brutal riffing and he looked a prat on stage. Indians, Caught In A Mosh, NFL..Sorry just didn't float my boat. Anthrax went from average to bad after that until they finally came to their senses - ditched Belladonna and moved into the future with John Bush. You know the rest - They released their four best CD's before bowing to the money men,losing all integrity and respect and bringing Belladonna back for a live tour - He was just as awful as ever. Cry for the Indians - No thanks.

the ones with bush their four best cd's? *lmao*
"Sound Of White Noise" is great, "Stomp 442" is ok, Volume 8 = boring & cheesy through and through, WCFYA has 2 great songs "What Doesn't Die" & "Any Place But Here", 1 good song "Black Dahlia" and many fillers.

spot on. Bush era was great and underrated.

''They went from average to bad when they got John Bush'', ''they then released their best 4 cd's with John Bush'' and ''when they brought belladonna back they lost all integrity and respect''... wow... sorry there is just too much irony in that review, oh god damn the irony... thanks for the laugh though.

Bush imo was far better. Totally subjective. An argument that continues to split fans. Wcfya is my favourite thrax disc. Yeah it'll make some thrax fans cry laughing, i don't care. However among the living is a thrash classic. For me it is and will always be guitars that float my boat not the moot point of who is the current frontman. This album is thrash rhythm heaven.
