This album is clearly Flotsam & Jetsam’s Magnum Opus. The songs all flow coherently and with a precision rarely seen in any genre. The fact that this album was so badly overlooked is indicative of the early 1990’s when all the music critics were completely addled with the grunge movement. The music and the lyrics on this album are still current today.
I remember the first time I saw the video for “Wading Through The Darkness” on Head Banger’s Ball and the subsequent interview that went along with it. I was amazed and knew that I had to go buy this album immediately. If you appreciate truly excellent metal music that is masterfully written, played, produced, and lives outside of time, then “Cuatro” is for you.
