EDITORS’ NOTES

In keeping with the grindcore icons’ uncompromising M.O., Napalm Death’s 15th record is a torrent of deafening gore and radical politics that, upon prolonged exposure, reveals finely rendered intricacies and bold stylistic fusions. “Stubborn Stains” pivots on a Mitch Harris guitar part that shifts breathlessly from technical precision to whirling thrash. Violently plodding and creepily psychedelic, “Dear Slum Landlord ...” is a death march and chant that eviscerates greedy slimeballs. As for “Smash a Single Digit,” it’s beyond impenetrable, like a half-dozen screamo and hardcore ragers all crammed in one monstrous moshfest.

One of my favorite albums

I listen to anything and everything, from alternative to rap, and pop to grind, this is a great album. If you don't like the nature of the lyrics of typical grindcore, but like the style, you'll like this. All the lyrics are politically charged and won't gross you out if you look them up. Great album

Reasons!

This album is great. Thats my review. Itunes decided to remove this album to adjust or update and removed it from my purchases. Contacting itunes they confirmed it was removed but will not refund or let me redownload this album. They claimed I should have backed up my purchases. Ok, guess i should not purchase through itunes. A band as old as this needs to stay alive. Excuse me for wanting to support. This album is good, not $20 good. I spent my money on their next NY visit. I know this effects no one but seriously, I'd rather buy tickets and keep the magic alive. Stream or pirate anything else. Bands make more money on over priced merchandise anyway. Negativity!
