Death- 'Lack Of Comprehension'

Biography

Unquestionably one of the most important and influential death metal acts to have ever emerged from the North American continent, Florida's DEATH came together in late 1983 when guitarist/vocalist Chuck Schuldiner and guitarist Rick Rozz (real name: Frederick DeLillo) got together with drummer/vocalist Barney "Kam" Lee to form Mantas. Drawing musical inspiration from Venom and ... Read more in Amazon's Death Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Drumming May 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
None of the reviews that I have seen on this page to date make any mention of Sean Reinert, the drummer on this album, so I felt I should write something. He is one of the best drummers in the scene, and deserves some recognition. For me, a review of Human that does not mention the drumming misses the point.
For people obsessed with speed alone, his performance is the fastest I have ever heard. A decent standard for a "fast" beat would be something like Slayer's "Angel of Death", which clocks in at about 210 beats per minute (BPM). It is impressive because the feet are doing 16th notes of this on the bass drums, which makes the section sound quite intense. On Human, however, most of the songs clock in between 230 and 240 BPM. He maintains this performance for a majority of the CD as well....
But suppose we ignore this. Sean himself seems to know that musicianship is more than speed alone. A lot of drummers in the scene have speed, but their playing sounds very angular and predictable. Sean brings in the influences like Vinnie Colaiuta and Stewart Copeland to give the music a less predictable feel. His ability to syncopate and turn the beat around keeps this CD interesting, and he has a great rhythmic vocabulary.
Any drummer caught in a rut looking for someone to inspire them should check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent July 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Death was unquestionably one of the, and arguably the primary innovators of the death metal genre, but it was with this album that Death truly built their legacy as one of the greatest metal bands ever. This marked a new phase for Death, turning them from a band into essentially a Chuck Schulinder solo project, with every song on this album, and all future Death albums, being written by Chuck alone. This also marked the beginning of a series of releases of rare, extraordinary quality culminating in the release of the phenemenol Sound of Perseverance, which I consider to be the best Death album, and one of the few greatest albums ever recorded by anyone. If you haven't heard any Death, that is perhaps a better place to start, but this fantastic release still belongs in any metal fans collection, and is probably my second favorite Death album.
Though Death was initially a pure Death metal band, this release and all future Death releases are better described as progressive death-thrash, perhaps leaning a bit more towards the thrash side. It's difficult to say why this is, other than to say that it feels more like thrash than death, to me anyway. Though it maintains much of the increased brutality of death metal, the riffs are very thrashy structurally, and they are always clean and crisp, not blurry and noisy as they tend to be in fast death metal. As a whole the riffs come a cross as a stylistic melding of those found in Reign in Blood and Beneath the Remains. Similarly, the drumming tends to be more thrashy, avoiding the blast-beat style drumming also common to death metal. Speaking of the drumming, Sean Reinert of Cynic is a fantastic drummer, though I prefer the later work of Gene Hoglan and Richard Christy. Sean doesn't seem to have as much personality stylistically as do those 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotive,thoughtful classic.. June 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Spiritual Healing was a good album.Having said that,Death's fourth album Human is light years ahead of Spiritual Healing and Leprosy lyrically and technically.Human is what got me to love Death,and show me that there was more to metal than generic satanism.Though Death isn't my favorite band,Human is one of my favorite metal albums owing largely to its focused drumwork,dynamic guitar and intelligent lyrical content.Songs like Lack
Of Comprehension and the beautifully prog flavored Cosmic Sea offer up a depth of not only technicality but also emotion.Human expanded my musical and intellectual horizons and showed me that metal could indeed endeavor to be more than escapist fantasy.For fans of this subculture,prog rock or hardcore devotees,there's always something ripe for the picking in this masterpiece.Thank you Chuck for the inspiration and emotion.I'll never forget what you gave to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. May 26, 2003
By Dan
Format:Audio CD
Some may be turned off by the pounding double bass, detuned guitar riffs, and of course, the growling/screaming vocals, but I love every second of this album. Chuck Shuldiner and Death have developed so much since the days of "Scream Bloody Gore". While SBG had simple riffs and gross lyrics, this album features much more technical and progressive songwriting and excellent lyrics. Mind you, it's still heavy as hell, and unbelievably fast.
Chuck Shuldiner was truly an outstanding guitarist. The riffs he wrote for this album are amazingly melodic and precise, yet complicated and very fast. His solos are fluent and melodic. The musicians accompanying him were the best he had worked with up until this point. Sean Reinert and Paul Masividal from Cynic joined on guitar and drums. If you're familiar with Cynic, you should know they're amazing. If you're not, you can trust me on that one. Steve DiGiorgio is a bass god, who has worked with Sadus, Iced Earth and others. He plays those incredibly fast riffs with his fingers. Whoa!
Chuck's songwriting took a more progressive and technical turn here, but it's still very much a straight Death Metal sound. "Flattening of Emotions" is about the best song ever, with it's incredibly fast double bass and awesome trade-offs between Chuck and Paul during the solo. It's also filled with Chuck's powerful growl/yell, which has always made him my favorite death metal vocalist. The album's fault, if it has one, is that it's not that diverse. I don't mind though, when the material is this good. "Suicide Machine", "Together As One" "See Through Dreams" and "Secret of Face" are all stand-outs as well, which feature excellent riffing and amazing guitar solos. "Lack of Comprehension" is an awesome song too, with it's awesome jazzy opening.

It's a superb album, and would deserve 5 stars. However, the digital download of "Suicide Machine" has a mixing error in it 2x (listen to the voice). That's a real shame.

This is going to be great
I'd stick with the original. I'm sure they will make this too loud like other metal remasters and ruin the dynamics.
