Akin to their piers, Anthrax's debut is packed with NWOBHM influence, as the genre they would popularize was still in its embryonic stage. It's probably not even that controversial to say this is purely speed metal, considering today's standards. Regardless of classification, this stands as a good debut, with some tight instrumentation, especially the soloing. However, I do agree Joey's characteristic vocals do give this band a whole lot of charisma.

Ultimately, a more interesting record than its predecessor, though it inherits some of its sins, namely the awful production work on the drums and the excessive use of voice filters.

I did do this dirty, I must admit. I guess after hearing "The Black Parade" and expecting another concept album of such magnitude was too high of a bar.

Just let yourself get infected by the energetic instrumentation and sing-along inviting emo-pop choruses.

One issue I still can't overlook is this weird effect in Gerard's voice when he goes into higher notes ... read more
