Hard to believe it but this brilliant (and divisive) album is 23 years old today. I still remember the first time I heard it (travelling on a bus to Melbourne from Adelaide for a job interview when I was 21 years old). I still have the original tape at home too. I know this album caused massive rifts in the Anthrax fanbase simply because of the manner (and shock) of Joey's departure but for me I think SOWN is simply their most complete album. Despite my disappointment at Joey being fired I had no idea just how brilliant this album would be. Zero filler. All great tracks. Bush totally kills it on this album. Superb production and just the complete package. POT may be my personal favourite but SOWN really tests that opinion for me many times. Only way I can described this album is lightning in a bottle. LOVE IT. And lets not make this a Joey v John thread (despite that being a rather relevant factor about this album). Show your love (or hate) for Sound of White Noise.
