This album kept me sane 15 years ago as I attended High School. I spent an entire year with this tape stuck in my walkman. As I listen to it now, I’m still in awe of its power.
At Thrash Metal’s peak, when bands moved past the fastest-riff-ever and gothic tones to more meaningful topics and much more mature music, PWYP stands out in a small cluster of releases by an even smaller cluster of artists that to me, truly defined the power of the music and the message it could convey. I miss those days.
