Review

What makes this album a wee bit stronger than those before it (and most of those AFTER it, too!) is the strong melodic sense that they display throughout the record. Whether you're talking about the jolly bounce-around of "The Gathering" or the mindpunch of "Frenzy" and/or it's rejuvenating neighbor to the north, the psycho vibes just keep a-crunchin' through and through. Much more idiosyncratic than Killing Joke, much more succinct than what's THIS for...!, and much more energetic than Revelations, it's absolutely mindboggling that not a single one of these tunes would end up on the "best of" package. - 5/5
