3.0 goodTheNotrap | August 8th 11

Cool crossover stuff. Kill the Words is one of the best songs here.

4.0 excellentFirstStrikeIsDeadly | May 4th 14

My favorite D.R.I. album, and their most metal 80s album. Every song is memorable, either from awesome group shouts ("LABELED...UNCURABLE!", "YOUSAYI'MSCUMYOUSAYI'MSCUM", "AB! DUC! TION!", et cetera) or from fantastic riffage. This is probably the riffiest D.R.I. album, with Spike Cassidy jamming out awesome riffs-aplenty. The best songs in this regard (and the best songs overall) are Thrashard and the underrated Gun Control and Kill the Words. Kill the Words in particular deserves recognition as perhaps being D.R.I.'s finest effort, with a killer intro, spectacular riffs, a super thrashable "main" body, and an orgasmic mosh section. The riff at about 3:08-3:09 ish should go down in history as one of the heaviest freaking RIFFS recorded. But anyways, if you're looking for a fun little thrash album from one of the pioneers of crossover thrash, look here. A few songs aren't very memorable and sound a bit derivative, but the better songs more than make up for their shortcomings.

A very fun listen with lots of great riffs on board! Some of the songs could be a little shorter, but even being slightly overlong the album keeps it up pretty well.
