  • Cyco Miko and his crew go off on Lights, Camera, Revolution and the results are nothing short of a metal masterpiece. The first three tracks are probably the strongest that the band has ever strung together. You Can’t Bring Me Down is an anthem that completely jump starts the album in true cyco fashion. Mike Muir’s intensity and lyrics have never been better: “…you wouldn’t know crazy if Charles Manson was sitting on your front porch eating a bowl of fruit loops…” Lost Again continues to be one of my all time favorite Suicidal songs with a killer guitar riff and great lyrics, it’s a headbanger’s paradise. Alone is a little slower and captures the essence of Muir’s lyrics…depression, isolation, and hatred. Lovely is a funkafied classic that sounds as if it could have been included on any one of the Infectious Grooves albums. For anyone who thinks that Robert Truillo(sp?) is not one of the best metal bassists, I urge you to listen to this track. Give it Revolution is the heart of the album and rocks hard. Muir seems right at home preaching about bringing down the current infrastructure of America. Send Me Your Money is really another Infectious Grooves track packaged as a Suicidal song. It is a harsh condemnation of tele-evangelists and their ability to pry money from hard working citizens. Get Whacked and Emotion #13 are the weakest tracks on Lights but they are still far above average metal. Disco’s Out, Murder’s In is a classic Suicidal track, a fast paced assault on the senses as is Goin’ Breakdown. Taken as a whole this is undoubtedly the most consistent and focused effort that Suicidal Tendencies has ever produced(save for their self-titled debut). It is a modern metal classic. Highly Recommended.
