Whilst a slight disappointment, the album's variety is what keeps it interesting to listen to. First three tracks are especially great, plus the doomy "Like Father, Like Son". Would be a honest 4 had it not been a little too long. The two covers, while okay, don't really add anything to the album.
Fabulous Disaster is an amazing thrash gem filled with memorable tracks like The Toxic Waltz, Like Father, Like Son and specially The Last Art Of Defiance and Fabulous Disaster. Their debut is an absolute classic TM album but in my opinion this is probably even better. If Fabulous Disaster was released in 86 probably their career had been more successful.
fabulous disaster is pretty good in terms of accessibility frankly thrash was very popular at that point.It's got some variation from the bluesy slide playing of Cajun hell and their version of low rider and overdose is quite interesting.I always thought toxic waltz was a cheesy title or better yet cheesy idea altogether.However theirs some good thrashed out/balls out energy on tunes like last act and of course fabulous disaster my personal favorite.
While many disagree, I think this is the best thing Exodus ever did. While every other thrash band at the time was trying to be political and shit, Exodus were still singing about moshing and headbanging. Steve Souza is an amazing vocalist, and Gary Holt is definitely in the top five thrash guitarists ever.
