    Probably LOG's best album as far as songwriting goes.
    I find the production on this album a little off. It seems so flat sounding. With Devin Townsend being the producer, I wouldn't expect it to sound like this.

    I must add Anathema - A Natural Disaster. This album gives me the fucking chills from the very beggining to the very end, flying and a a natural being the total peaks of "die lying in a fetal position" type of songs

    These are from the impact I remember on hearing them at their release time: (in no order)

    Metallica - ...and Justice for all. ("There's a song called One that goes for 7 minutes with sound effects", my mate said at the time, haha.)
    Sepultura - Arise. Straight-up Thrash. Brutal.
    Death - Spiritual Healing. I still remember counting the number of riff changes in the Title-track. Flanger or Phaser, what was that sound? I remember talking about James Murphy being the best metal guitarist in USA at the time.
    Megadeth - Rust in Peace. Apart from Poison was the Cure. Mustaine at his breaking-point.
    Obituary - Cause of Death. James Murphy again. No I didn't like all the album (maybe I was scared, haha), but the sheer brutality of it was amazing at the time. "Chopped in half, feel the blood spill from your mooouuuttthhh!"
    Cannibal Corpse - The Bleeding. Hadn't heard anything like that before. "Staring through the eyes of the dead" is still awesome.
    Deicide - Deicide. ALL brutal, ALL perfect. "White alert, white alert, the mercenaries are here......."
    Slayer - Reign in Blood. Start to finish, unrelentless.


    All time-relevant for me. I appreciate some more modern releases, it's just that these ones had such a huge impact at the time. Back then, you had to be quite good to get a record deal.

    I can't imagine a more modern release having such an impact nowadays.....or, I am just old now. :D

    Sorry for the ramble. :eek:
