The statement above (the title) describes the lyrics of the album, which involve Chuck's views on various social issues such as the death penalty, cloning, and vigilante justice among other things. Due to this the lyrics are a step forward from the clichéd gore lyrics that were present on the first two albums. Along with the lyrics, the music took a change in direction on this album, beginning to go in a more technical direction with less focus on brutality, (a style which would later be explored further in Human and the future albums to a much greater extent) and although most of the past brutality remained, there was a step up in the quality of the song writing, along with improved musicianship, which was complemented with more complex riffing, many (meaningful) tempo changes throughout the album, and better guitar solos. And the addition of James Murphy as a second guitarist didn't hurt, either. The production gets the job done, but is somewhat flawed. The good aspects are that it's relatively clear, but not so too clean for a death metal album, nor does it sound sterile, the bass is too low in the mix, though. The main problem in the production is with the drums which are pushed too far back resulting in some of the potential power of the album being lost.

Personally, I find this album to be highly under-rated; even though it was a landmark for Death it lives in the shadow of the next album, Human. However it's also a great album.

The album starts off with Living Monstrosity, which is a great opening track.

Format: Audio CD
With their first two albums, Death established themselves as death metal pioneers. Their sound was raw and brutal, but with Spiritual Healing, they proved that there was more than meets the eye when it came to their music. Here, the band begins to add a bit more depth to their music and lyrics. There is a bit more melody as well, which would pave the way for their more progressive albums in the next few years.

We get off to an amazing start with Living Monstrosity. This is probably one of my favorite Death songs. I love the riffs in this song, and that melodic section around two minutes in is wonderful indeed. Definitely a hint at the melodies on their future albums! Amazing solos as well, with James Murphy taking Rick Rozz's place, the solos got about ten times better. My favorite lines are "Never knowing love or hate/ Only pain the drug creates." Now that is powerful. Altering the Future moves at a bit of a slower pace. However the song does pick up a bit around the middle and the solos are very melodic on here. Read the lyrics and you can tell how much better the songwriting is on here. Defensive Personalities picks up the pace. There is some killer drum work on this song. About two minutes in, there is a killer melodic section with more awesome solos. Spiritual Healing is the "epic" of the album, it clocks in at over seven minutes. It starts off with some killer riffs with a bit of melody thrown in. At first, the song has a slow pace but it soon picks up and gets heavier. The solos on this one are f*cking intense. They go on for about a whole minute! You gotta hear Chuck when he sings "No changing your mind, your life you should PAAAAAAY!" Truly a sickening scream. Low Life is a dark and angry song. Think of someone that you really hate and dedicate this song to them!

Format: Audio CD
The year was 1990, Death Metal had exploded onto the scene with countless bands trying to outdo each other's goriest lyric or fastest blast beat, etc. Death were already 2 albums in their career and already heraled as a leading band in the scene. So instead of putting out another gore-drenched, squaling lead, blast beated, general death metal album, Chuck Schuldiner put together a masterpiece for the thinking man's metal, a social commentary on the underbelly of society; Spiritual Healing. Instead of writing about the act of abortion, Chuck wrote about the actual issue from a different perspective, and continued touching topics from drug use in pregnancy, religious hypocrisy, human genetics, and public shootings. Apart for the lyrical advancements in the album, the addition of James Murphy on guitar also played a vital role. Up until then, Death had only good or average players, but Murphy could actually shred and write amazing solos and lead parts, which I think really had impact on Chuck's own growth as a player. Along with the great rhythm section of Terry Butler and Bill Andrews, Death had created the perfect storm that would solidfy them as one of the top-dogs of the genre and innovators for future generations, as in today.

So once again, Relapse has done a spectacular job reissuing this important album in the Death Metal genre. Out of all the Death albums, this one has been out of print the longest so I imagine alot of newer fans or some old ones (who may have lost or worn out their old Combat records one) may be looking to get a copy. Well, I can say with full confidence: this is the definitive version of Spiritual Healing. The remastering is crisp and pristine, no bottom end was lost or suffered and the guitars shine bright. It is well worth the upgrade from the orginal CD.
