Of their early grindcore albums I prefer this album. While it doesn’t have as many memorable songs as Scum it does have consistency. It still sounds a little crappy but at least the same band recorded the whole album. It’s pretty brutal stuff so know what you’re getting into before you listen to this. To say you like one song more than another can be hard since they are mostly just noise. But it's awesome. I like Uncertainty Blurs the Vision
most just because it has such a warped guitar solo. I can't remember but I think it's the only guitar solo in the entire Napalm Death library, There are a few songs you’d still hear today if you saw them live. The title track is a staple and I’m pretty sure I saw them play It’s a M.A.N.S. World
once. The Curse EP is included with most pressings of the album and it has two of my favorite Napalm Death grindcore songs: Your Achievement?
. Your Achievement?
(six seconds) and Dead
(five seconds) are way better super short blasts than You Suffer
since they can almost actually be considered songs. Dead
pretty much sounds like how I feel most days. Shane Embury joined the band on this album, starting his tenure as the longest serving member of Napalm Death.
