Just finished listening to POT without stopping - thoughts. OK, so I've just done some seriously long driving, and cranked out Persistence of Time on my trip. I was thinking about this stuff, and thought I should post some thoughts..... 1. Why does this record, with the obvious exception, get no love in the live setting???? Is it that there aren't many tunes on the record with a lot of crowd participation? What's the story there? Are the songs too long? Can understand this when the band has a 40 min set but what about their own headline shows?? 2. Adding to above, In My World is seriously missing from their setlists. How Medusa gets a nod before IMW on the big 4 shows is beyond me. 3. POT is Charlie's best work. Some of his fills on Time, One Man Stands and Discharge are just godlike. 4. Discharge is Anthrax's most underated somg ever. 5. I don't really believe that John Bush would've made this record any better. (And I'm a big fan of his). Joey sounds great (happy IMF09, ha!) imho. Comment please, but don't bash and slam. I'm over it! 6. I have a bootleg video from 1990 from Osaka Japan, where they played Intro / Belly in their entirety. Killer. Would love to one day hear that again. 7. POT is still my fave Anthrax record cover. There we go. Stuff I was thinking while driving and cranking and thought it was worth sharing. I was going to post this on the other POT thread, but it as usual turned into a complete Bush / Belladonna debate which isn't really what this is about. Your thoughts people??!!
