Once upon a time in a far-far away land lived innocent people guided by their beloved divinities - Gentleness, Kindness and Softness. These people lead pastoral innocent life, shared intimate closeness with nature and with themselves. Everything around them was a pretext for love and kindness. But, as they grew in number, they discovered they had to import goods from the other lands surrounding their peaceful country. And thus they did , at first afraid by the ignonimous stories about the barbaric habits of "the outlanders", but finally, reluctantly releaved as they were by the precise advice from their divinites on the specific goods and countries to get them from.

Pantera. A band that self put out four albums in the 1980's. Most people who listen to them probably do not know that about them. With the 1990 release of Cowboys From Hell Pantera moved from their glam/speed metal to a heavier groove thrash. And after the release of their powerful Vulgar Display Of Power they seemed to be on top of the metal community and many fans thought they could never top that album.

Rating: 8 Although this album is mostly great, "Good Friends And A Bottle Of Pills" is without doubt, one of the most ridiculously pointless "songs" Ive ever heard. And is IMO Pantera's worst ever song. Even a lot of their songs from the glam days slay this one!

Anyways, songs like "Strength Beyond Strength", "Slaughtered", and "5 Minutes Alone", show Pantera at their punishing best. xD My 2 fave songs on this album though, are the cruelly underrated "Shedding Skin", and the awesome "Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks", which contains another of my fave Dimebag solos. Another couple of fillers like "25 Years" drag the album down, even though none of them are as woeful as "Good Friends"... But then not much is! lol

It's funny how this and Sarcofago's Hate were released the same year. Both have a pointless cacophonous track (for Sarcofago, it's The Beggar's Uprising).

Otherwise I agree somewhat, except that the groove style gets a bit stale after a while.

Ive never heard that song, but if it's anything like "Good Friends And A Bottle Of Pills", I dont want to! Phil must have been totally off his face when he wrote those lyrics, or I hope he was.

I think any style gets stale after a while... I listen to lots of different styles anyways, so I never have a chance to get bored with one particular style. lol

Nah, it's just that it kind of lacks something. I can't quite put my finger on it, but they seemed to have realized this when making TGSTK.

Rating: 7 I am not a fan of Pantera but this is the only album I can stomach. 5 Minutes Alone is awesome.
megadeath13 - 11.11.2012 at 18:15  
  Its not as great as the previous but its very good. "Strength beyond Strength", "Becoming" and "5 Minutes alone are awesome but the rest is not that great
Metropolis_Dream - 03.04.2013 at 19:29  
  Not as perfect as "Vulgar" but it kicks ass too. "Becoming" and "5 Minutes alone" are still one of my favourite Pantera songs.

Rating: 8 A great album from a great band.

Becoming, I'm Broken, Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks, Shedding Skin are all spectacular tunes and the rest are pretty good too! I also prefer the Pantera version of Planet Caravan to the original Sabbath one.

I would agree it isn't a "song" in the style of their songs. But that is one song I really come back to in this album a lot. I haven't heard any of their glam metal albums but I find that song addictive especially for the groove. Far from their worst song ever IMO.

Rating: 8 I like "Good Friends and a Bottle Of Pills." It sounds exactly like being maggotted (aka totally drunk/stoned whatsoever)


Some truly fucked up lyrics too.
