  • As my title says, this was the first Suicidal Tendencies album I got. I expected it to sound punky, as everyone says they’re so good a punk band. I was surprised, and NOT the bad kind! This album is straight forward metal. The first two albums had a punk influence, but HCILTWICEST and everything afterwards was a metal album. This is one of the best albums of the 90’s. Mike Muir’s vocals are top-notch here. Rob Trujillo’s bass is great, the guitars from Mike Clark and the other guitarist (forgot his name…sorry!) are great, as are the drums. The album starts out with “Cant’ Stop”. NO, not the Red Hot Chilli Peppers song! It’s one of the longer songs, but it’s a great start to this great album. The next songs, “Accept My Sacrifice” and “Nobody Hears”, are my favorite songs on this album. I like all the songs on this album, but the above three are my favorites. Recommended if you like metal, speed metal, and Suicidal Tendencies.

  • When I bought this album I didnt get what I thought I was getting into. For awhile I was highly dissappointed listening to it, and to be honest I didnt like it to much. I gave ‘The Art of Rebellion’ some time though, and it grew on me. The lyrics can be a bit corny and annoying some of the time though, and that brings it down a half point – from a perfect five to a 4.5. Thats still really great, and perfect albums that truly warrent five stars are really far in between for me though. For anyone who wants an album they can listen to years for now (unlike those whiny emo bands who will be gone after the fad wears off), then pick up this album. You cant stop the run away emotions in me, you know… Never mind. Buy the album and you will know what I’m talking about.

  • This album is more like “Lights” than “How Will I Laugh” in it’s song writing style but done way better. The tunes are good, not dry like “Lights” and the album feels well-produced. You’ll find the songs high in content and quality but not that fast or thrashy. This is NOTHING like early S.T.’s but it is a good album nonetheless. I regard this as Suicidal’s last good album. Trust me, after this, it’s completely downhill in the worst way.

  • In 1991, when the world was held in the grip of Whitney Houston, Michael Bolton musical haze, Tori Amos, Nirvana, and the Seattle Grunge scene broke on the charts and unseated the mellow gods. In the wake of that wave, while all record companies were looking to sign the “Next Nirvana,” Suicidal Tendencies, long darlings of the skater set, masters of rage and anger, quietly released this most mature and stunning album. Had music’s attention not been focused elsewhere, it would hold a much higher place in the public eye, I’m sure. Focusing heavily upon a twin theme of depression and paranoia, the work moves with relentless grace through a series of incredibly orchestrated, well thought songs. It starts out angry and fast, with “Can’t Stop” and “Accept My Sacrifice.” Then in a decidedly un-Tendencies way, moves into the slower, sitting on the edge of sanity styled, “I Wasn’t Meant to Feel This/Asleep at the Wheel,” and gleefully topples over the edge into “Got to Kill Captain Stupid,” and “Hate You Better.” There simply isn’t a bad track on this one. The Tendencies show a lot of musical maturity as well, at this time, they were working on a number of side projects (as the band began to splinter,) like their Ska/Chilli Pepper inspired alter ego, “The Infectious Grooves.” They bring the knowledge gleaned from these musical diversions to bear on this album. Gone are the blindingly fast, quantity over quality speed chords of the early albums, and Muir’s voice has graduated from the near incoherent shouting of “institutionalized,” to a smooth honey glaze that slides through the songs like an undertow, allowing the intellegent lyrics and musical turns to do the ripping. At times almost unintrusive, but capable of crushing intensity, a worthy addition to any collection that include both Metalica and Tool.

  • I am 36 and have been listening to hard rock/metal since I was only nine. I own more than 1,500 hard rock/metal CDs. I am not bragging here, but rather trying to put things into perspective when talking about this album.

    This whole album is incredible. It’s easily ST’s best, but you got to let it grow on you for a while. This CD contains ST’s best song ever, and one of my top ten songs of all time: “Asleep at the Wheel”. I probably have listened to that song more than 1,000,000 times since this CD came out, and I still close my eyes and sing it out loud EVERY SINGLE TIME!!! It’s a very original song, impossible to describe with words. It’s magical, it’s mesmerizing (By the way, you may skip the first two minutes of the song since they are very forgettable and have actually a different name – “I Wasn’t Meant to Feel This”).

    Another great song is “Monopoly of Sorrow”, especially after the 3:37 mark. This has to be one of the best song endings that I have ever herad. That combination of fast pace acoustic and electric guitars is simply top notch.

    Anyway, get this CD and let it grow on you. You will not regret it.
