    I still remember waiting for POT to come out! My father drove me to the mall so I could buy it on cassette. I played it on the way home even though I knew he couldn't stand it lol . Just the way 'Time' started off at that time. I was thinking 'holy mother of fuck' this is awesome! :headbang:

    Why was that? Was there a reason behind it, or was it just the way they wrote the song?

    the only reason they hate on that album so much is because there image backfired and got alot of bad press for it,there just trying to distance themselves from that era.

    Pretty much the same story as mine. I waited for POT to come out, got the cassette and that clock ticking at the beginning and then into TIME which is one of my favorite Anthrax songs ever. POT is a masterpiece. it was 'different' sounding than the previous material but was still heavy and thrashy. it shows that there are certainly ways to stay thrash and not have to change to hard rock in order to 'evolve':headbang: Then out came SOWN and that was when i knew it was all over for anTHRASH

    When I first heard SOWN I thought it was kind of similar to POT, but less repetitive.

    How many more times are you going to tell us you don't like it? Just cry some more and be a little bitch about it.

    I finally listened to the whole thing. Not bad. I would say 6.5 of 10. Certainly not thrash, but a decent metal tune.

    Meh, 6.5 is a good rating for that song. Actually this song could as well be on the Damned Things record.

    SOE is probably my second or third favorite Thrax album. The song writing on that album is up there with POT or ATL. The only song off that album I dread hearing is Antisocial--just sick of it perhaps. But as most others have said the production sucks. Had Anthrax not gone off on tour and actually took their time with Alex I think it would have been an epic record.

    Thats what i have been saying all along. But I guess most people on here think it sounds like a great thrash metal tune like caught in a mosh. i don't get it. but to each their own.

    Who said this?

    You're the only person here who cries like a bitch about this new stuff not being thrash metal.

    I'll ask you again - who? Show us.

    Otherwise, shut the fuck up. I'm predicting no response (again).

    If you're going to whine about the direction Anthrax is going, just take Milano's advice:
    "Lots of good bands out there! pick several and have at it!"

    Some advice from me....>> SOWN, STOMP, Vol.8, WCFYA...these are on CD (I like these myself) so you can listen to them all day long if ya want :wave:
