Another Testament album being number three by Megaforce/ Atlantic Records. Twenty-fives years after its first release, it is still one album that will blow many metal fans away. This album provides an array of guitar tricks that Alex Skolnick and Eric Peterson do. Whether it is sweep picking and dual guitar solos, these two guitarists can show the good musicianship they have. Tune “Practice What You Preach” is heard with solos that are connected with guitarists from Brian May to Yngwie Malmsteen. Even more amazing are the riffs/ power chords developed to create such an astonishing highway of melodies going through the listener’s ears. With “Greenhouse Effect,” an identifiable solo mixed with Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. “The Ballad” frames a piece of Ozzy Osbourne’s own Randy Rhoad’s famous solo in “Crazy Train.” Once again, the incredible Chuck Billy shouts out about social issues and political corruption. This album will please the average person listening to thrash metal albums like this one. And even anyone trying to listen to any subgenre of heavy metal such as thrash.
