Guest review by

Sacred Reich's fourth offering (and second full-length), The American Way was yet another step forward in a more socially conscious direction, with lyrics emphasising the importance of such issues as pollution, apartheid and (supposedly) music-influenced suicide. In a way, Phil Rind has made the lyrics more understandable for the listener here, yet remaining coarse and hateful as he ever was with his voice.

  A very nice thrash album. Even if the album could be a little bit more complex, i like so many songs on it.

  This Album is plain awesome. But i feel its a bit too short.

Rating: 9 One of my favourite albums of this era.

Every song a winner, phenomenal riffage, awesome lyrics, great bass and Phil Rind's awesome vocals.
