Customer Reviews

This album is one of the BEST albums of metal.
Armagan Barut (leventm@superonline.com)
I also like Ugly Noise a lot and others, but this one really stands out as almost a perfect sounding Metal Record.
Christopher A. Pelissier
I wore the cassette version of this album out and replaced it with the CD so I could play it over and over again.

Flotsam and Jetsam will be eternally remembered as the band that supplied Metallica with a bass player. They should really be remembered for their music. This is the band's magnum opus, never to be approached even distantly ever again.
Flotsam and Jetsam were magnificent songwriters. The title track is a moving account of a disgraced samurai's final moments before absolving himself through suicide. It shows an empathy with the thoughts of such a character. The riffs, from the introduction to the finale, are original and memorable. Some of the subject matter for the remaining tracks on the album is a little lame ("I Live, You Die", "Misguided Fortune"), but even some of the thrash elite at the time were dealing in cheese of the stinkiest vintage at the time (anyone want crackers with Megadeth's "502" and Slayer's "Mandatory Suicide"?). Newstead was one of the main songwriters for the band before his departure, and his creativity, long stifled by the rampant egos in Metallica, shines through here, as he co-wrote the best tracks on the album.
Lyrics aside, the music is near faultless- the Egyptian sounding guitars and bass run on "N.E. Terror" are particularly impressive, the transition from the acoustic introduction to the power ballad-ish feel to the high velocity thrash out of "Escape From Within", the soloing throughout. The twin instrumental tracks, "P.A.A.B" and "The Jones" showcase some stunning riffs and solos without getting self-indulgent. As with many bands of the time, the drummer had a thing for showing his double kick drum prowess. In every song. Constantly. I like it! The production is sharp, clear and heavy.
What put many people off the band were Eric AK's seemingly helium fuelled shrieks.

I wore the cassette version of this album out and replaced it with the CD so I could play it over and over again. I can't imagine how any reviewer on this page that actually loves thrash metal could give this anything less than a four. I personally can't give it anything less than a five. This is one of the more perfect thrash metal albums from the hey-day of thrash metal in the late 80s, and I still listen to it to this day.

Man, those vocals. If only their later albums (while occasionally cool) had the operatic power of "No Place for Disgrace." At least they tried new things.

This album was hard to find for me, so I'm very pleased to have purchased it recently. So far it's the only Flotsam & Jetsam album I own, but that will change because these guys tear it up. This one seems to be a fan favorite, but I can't say which one's best because I haven't heard them all. This stuff is just as good as Anthrax, Testament, and Megadeth of the same period, so that's why I'm confused as to why it's not more widely known and appreciated. Any fan of old school thrash will love this.

This is a thrash classic that let you know FloJet was for real. The title track alone is worth the disc with some seriously fast riffage. "Escape From Within" is the most moving track on the disc, and a real treat to see live while the next three "Saturday Night" (Elton John cover), "Hard on You" & "I Live You Die" are FloJet showing their thrash excellence. Living in Phoenix, I get to see these guys on a semi-regular basis; I just saw them perform on 7/13/01, and let me tell ya, they still got it!!

Don't listen to that guy who says this album sucks,he probably like's crap bands who think there metal.This is Flotsam And Jetsam's second album,Jason Newsted is not on this album.

The song No Place For Disgrace is my favorite song on the album,the playing is amazing,during the middle of the song it turns into this ballad(amazing).

There is a couple of songs I don't like on this album,one being Elton John's Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting because it's an Elton John song and the other I am not going to say,you can decide for yourself.

Hard On You rules,listen to the lyrics it's about the people who put the Parental Advisory-Explicit Lyrics on the cover or the back of cd's,tapes......Not as good as Doomsday For The Deciever but still good.

No Place for Disgrace is a nice piece of old-school thrash which tends to remind me of classic Metallica more than anything else. But these guys certainly had their own vision which comes out well on this long, finely-produced album. Tracks such as 'I Live, You Die' and the title track are worthy metal songs, with some impressive riffing and solos. 'Escape From Within' is the ballad, and the tense cover of Elton John's 'Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting' is a highlight. Overall, a standout thrash metal release.

This album is like a sledgehammer to the head! I've recently revisited this "monsterpiece" after listening to the remastered version of Doomsday For The Deceiver. NPFD definitely needs the same remastering treatment as DFTD, so you could finally appreciate those pounding thrash riffs, beastly drumming, magnificent guitar leads, that flabbering bass, and Eric AK's to-the-stratosphere vocals! F & J definitely became a much more cohesive "killing machine" on this disc. I don't know what else to say about NPFD that hasn't been said already. I would without-a-doubt have to rank this as one of my top ten albums of all time. As a footnote, Metallica was supposed to take F & J out on the Justice Tour as openers, probably because of the Newsted/Elektra Records connection. Not surprisingly, they opted to take Queensryche instead. One listen to NPFD, you'll know exactly why Jaymz & Lar$ said, "No way, Jose!" In all seriousness, NPFD totally blows away ...And Justice To $ell! Unfortunately, F & J never matched the intensity of this outing, and sadly were relegated as the band that Jason Newsted used to be in! If you want to hear thrash the way it was meant to be played, you need to get this NOW!
