This one probably needs a little explanation. How does a Cavalera Conspiracy album end up on a ?best of? list? My personal lists are based on two things: how much did I enjoy it and how often did I come back to it. It doesn?t have to be ground breaking or feature mind-fucking musicianship; it doesn?t even have to be a genre essential. This is a good thing, because that basically sums up Psychosis. Psychosis attacks with a thrashy ferocity that is singular in its focus, and relentless in its pursuit of the almighty riff. Just about every song launches at a breakneck pace, and rarely lets up from there ? except for the occasional slower sections (relatively speaking) that are basically thrashy breakdowns. Psychosis isn?t ground breaking or even all that original, and it certainly won?t win any musicianship awards, but the conviction and unrelenting focus makes this an album that I?ll continue to come back to.
