let's start by saying that i have owned over 2,000 different rock and metal cds and lps over the last 30+ years, and that i have been playing the drums for over 25 years, so i like to think i know a little about music. i don't like giving "best of" titles when it comes to my(our)music, because that is purely subjective, and one's own opinion. however, in this case, it seems i have some company in my felling that this may be one of the best metal releases of all time. i hate saying that, but it may be the god's honest truth. it really is hard to beat it. it is far and away the best of Trouble's career, and may be the best of the 90's, as it was released in '90. Down's Nola album from '95 is a close second. out of the thousands of titles i have owned, it ranks in the top 5. how's that for status? anyway, enough of the babble, just pay the money to get it, or borrow it, or whatever, just get it. i , fortunately, bought it new, and don't have to pay what it's goin' for, but i'll tell ya', it's worth it. really. it's that good. check it out. some things in life were just meant to be. this is one of those. peace.

I heard this album is going to be re-released soon so don't pay these crooks prices. Trouble have a new album coming out soon and their whole catalog is supposed to be re-released. This is their best album in my opinion and it will be worth the wait for the re-release!

This was Trouble at their best and coolest. These guy's vintage guitar tone is my favourite, it's like honey coated breakfast cereal with razors, crunchy, sweet and sharp. Rick Rubin gave them the production that was both retro 70's and 90's presence. He ironed a few rough edges out too, especially with Eric Wagner's vocals. Barry Stern provided the solid straight ahead back beat, something that they struggled with here and there.

The songs on this have driving doomy riffs and solos galore and come across like groovy Chicago blues meets Black Sabbath meets Judas Priest meets Deep Purple with a bit of Pink Floyd and an 80s metal influence. James Hetfield owes a lot to this band.

It's still as good 25 years after I bought the vinyl version.

Having read the other reviews, I am hesitant to concur that this is the best metal album of all time, or even the best Trouble album. However, I can certainly understand the latter claim, and don't find the former claim ridiculous. However, I'd say it is impossible to call anything the absolute best of any genre as diverse, multi-facted, etc. as metal.

That being said, without question, Trouble is one of the most underrated rock bands of all time, metal or otherwise. I have heard this album described as the perfect "bridge" album between metal and hard rock, and I think that's a good description. What might make one say it's the best Trouble album is that this is the album where they really start to hone their "chunky" throbbing guitar line which defines them. There is still plenty of Sabbath resonating here, but a bit more upbeat. The guitar work and time changes definitely mark an increased sophistication from the earlier work. I personally am a huge doom fan, and Trouble is possibly my favorite band ever, but I like the Skull the best (one many find to be their weak link) simply because it is their gloomiest, and lyrically most serious work. This album is definitely more sophisticated musically, but it merely has a doom "vibe" as opposed to embodying doom rock. The Pink Floyd experiment which began on Run to the Light is continued here full force with Misery Shows, a haunting song that will stick with you. The rest of the album rocks---it gallops more than plods,

but it never enters the "speed" zone. Every song is a good one.

The second half of the album captures the old gloomy feeling a bit more, particularly on RIP, END, and Black Shapes of Doom (an overlooked song; this song also shows the greatest Sabbath influence on the album).

I have been a hard rock/metal junkie for most of my 44 years and literally grew up on the sounds of Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Zeppelin, Motorhead and others...I grew to love the 'new' bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Metalchurch, Candlemass, Armored Saint, etc, but the one who has risen to the top of the hill in my opinion is the Chicago doom metal band Trouble. From their early Metal Blade releases to this masterpiece was a steady climb that certainly peaked, but did not end, with this release. This is 'the' cd that I can listen to every day and never tire of. I can load a stack of cd's for daily listening, and this one I still look forward to every time! From the pounding beats, the heavy steady bass, the dual guitar harmony rythms and leads, every song seems to be a perfect work of art, expertly arranged and played with a demonic frenzy, sometimes slowing down to explore some cosmic scenery (Sinners Fame, Misery Shows pt 2), other times speeding up for a downhill rush that leaves your brain numb trying to keep up (heaven on my Mind, Black Shapes of Doom), key changes and time changes so smooth you scarcely notice them, while the beat, bass and guitars keep up that synchronicity that seems to be so rare in todays 'metal' acts. Certainly the guitar riff in 'End of my Daze' ranks with the best of riff god Tony Iommi, who was in fact a huge influence on both Trouble guitarists. I can't say enough about how good this album is. It cost me over $40 to replace it on ebay when my original CD was stolen, and worth every cent. I also have it on vinyl, which seems to give the guitar sounds the extra warmth of a live club show, which is where this band was at its best.Read more ›
