5.0 classicFirstStrikeIsDeadly | September 13th 14

Catchy, uber technical, and more than headbangable, Toxik's Think This is a progressive thrash album that'll leave your pants soaked with semen and/or vaginal fluids for days. Thrash out to Spontaneous, wrap your head around Technical Arrogance's complexity, never forget the mega memorable chorus to Machine Dream, or check out the amazing power ballad There Stood the Fence. And not only is the music good, but it's all (mostly) held together by the concept of society and the media, and the way the media reinforces things in society, and the occasional hypocrisy presented by society/the media's messages...and stuff. This framework is brilliantly reinforced through the use of ads. For example, "Shotgun Logic", about substance abuse/addiction, begins with the classic "This is your brain on drugs" ad, followed by a beer commercial, showing our culture's clashing attitudes on things like drugs and alcohol. Another song, "Machine Dream", is about how advertisements reinforce certain beliefs about body image and self worth. A cookie commercial is played, followed by the sounds of one of those old fashioned exercise tapes, to demonstrate the innate hypocrisy of the advertisements you see and hear on TV and the radio...and stuff. With lyrics that are still relevant today (Well, maybe "Spotaneous" and "In God" less so, for the most part anyway) and music that'll ALWAYS rip, Toxik's sophomore album is a timeless classic for any fan of thrash or progressive metal.

This is insanely good. Very progressive, yet very catchy and very original. Puts a large amount of metal, let alone thrash, bands to shame.

First time I heard this I was blown away. 20 years later I'm still picking up my pieces off the floor.

4.5 superbJeremy Wolfers | March 31st 11

This is one of the greatest thrash metal gems I've found in my life. I'd given World Circus a listen, but this album manages to be immensely progressive and also very disturbing at times like the title track. Overall this is one of the best thrash metal albums you've most likely not heard of.

5.0 classicwesterndragon | May 2nd 15

A technical masterpiece. Immensely futuristic in its composition and yet still retains the charm and tone of the 80's.

3.5 greattitanslayer | March 30th 15

Pretty cool album. could be a 4 if the stupid ads were taken out, their distracting and kind of annoying. Also I'm not really a big fan of the vocal style on most the songs, he sounds really good in the ballad though

Musically spectacular and politically charged, Think This is the definition of what one would call thinking man's thrash. With that, Think This is more than qualified to share the top three thrash pedestal with Mental Vortex and Victims of Deception.
