True thrashy, speedy, comical, humorous thrash metal!!! Anthrax may not have been as evil and fast and angry as Slayer or Sepultura or Sodom but they were just as good. The song "Antisocial" should be a thrash anthem right up there with classics like Slayer's "Raining Blood", Sepultura's "Inner Self", and Sodom's "Nuclear Winter". Anthrax was never as deadly of a band they took the more melodic end of the 80's thrash scene but they certainly weren't a commercial or trendy band. This proves that you dont have to be evil as hell (although that doesnt hurt) to be a succesful thras band. Anthrax!!

I was glad that I was able to find this CD and buy it, I had the cassette years ago, but wore the hell out of it. STATE OF EUPHORIA is metal classic that stands up there with anything released by METALLICA, MEGADETH OR SLAYER in the same time period. All these bands released albums the same years as this one, and ANTHRAX sometimes doesnt get the due they are owed. This album is filled with great lyrics, killer riffs and alot of energy. ANTHRAX has always been able to mix serious messages with some comical lyrics on their albums and they do here once again. BE ALL,END ALL, MAKE ME LAUGH, WHO CARES WINS are 3 songs that are serious but they just rock, FINALE is a funny song that with comical lyrics that also rocks. ANTISOCIAL is also a classic song that the band rocks out on. If you like fast furious music, then this is an album that u should own.

State of Euphoria is a high-paced, loud, and fun CD with many sarcastic undertones. In this album, the band's creative spirit is revealed, as they expound their liberal social theory. Each note on the album is carefully placed. The violently-fast pace of their music is never out of control. The band demonstrates their musical talents with quick, bold, and catchy riffs executed with near absolute rhythmic perfection.

This album is really a lot better than many give it credit for. OK, so maybe it's not my favorite Anthrax album, but it's essential in any Anthrax collection, lets just put it that way. You have to listen to it to know how cool it is, so why don't you just do that. I don't like reviewing stuff because I'm not good at it, so just buy this fun, unique thrash album.

In Joey Belladonna, Anthrax had one of the most distinctive singers in Thrash. The biggest problem with a voice as powerful and clean as Belladonna's was how the hell do you incorporate it into something as rough and ready as thrash? Well, it took the band three albums, but they finally hit the nail on the head with 'State Of Euphoria'.
Often criticised as Anthrax's weakest album, it is easy to see why many fans don't rate it. Production wise, it lacks the bite and punch of 'Spreading The Disease' and 'Among The Living', and is nowhere near as heavy as 'Persistence Of Time'. Scott Ian's signature rhythm guitar crunch has been strangled, and the drums are right up in the mix. It sounds like a bit of a mess, but it actually works, in an odd way.
Instead of the rhythm guitar leading the songs, as is more usual in Thrash, it's the vocals that point the songs in whatever direction they may be heading. Joey Belladonna's melodies shine through, and they are a pleasure to hear. Belladonna has an excellent vocal range and a clear voice, and easily pulls off a number of difficult passages and songs. Few other Thrash singers ever matched him, except perhaps Mark Oseguda from Death Angel.
The odd mix of the album make it far easier to appreciate Charlie Benante's drumming than on other Anthrax albums. While many Thrash fans worship Dave Lombardo and Gene Hoglan, Benante often ends up forgotten, rather unfairly.
Anthrax were called a band with a social conscience after previous songs like "Indians", and that aspect of the band was further developed here. "Who Cares Wins" in particular examines the plight of the homeless, and how easy it is for those living comfortably to ignore. Elsewhere, they take a poke at money grabbing evangelists, on "Make Me Laugh".

This has always been one of my favorite Anthrax albums even though it doesn’t get as much praise as their older releases. I’m a big fan of “Spreading the Disease” and “Among the Living” myself, but “State of Euphoria” has some excellent music on it. It’s a perfect medium between “Among” and the album they did after “Euphoria”, “Persistence of Time”. “Among” epitomized mid-80’s thrash with its fast, swinging style, while “Euphoria” brought Anthrax into more refined territory. And even though “Euphoria” is not quite as speedy as “Among”, the music and vocals are superb. I’ll never tire of songs like “Be All, End All”, “Out of Sight, Out of Mind”, “Now it’s Dark”, and “Misery Loves Company”, all tracks with the just the right mix of speed, riffing, and melodic sensibility. I also think this album and “Persistence” are the two best vocal performances of Joey Belladonna’s career. He had mastered the range between aggressive metal singing and that soaring falsetto that was nearly out of control at times on “Spreading the Disease” and “Among the Living”. If you want to hear one of the best examples of quality late-80’s thrash, give “State of Euphoria” a spin. Anthrax was on top of their game.
