"Walk Among Us" indeed features the best material to come from the Misfits, but it's also one of the finest American punk rock albums of all time. Glenn Danzig's ungodly howl fuels fan favorite, classic tracks like "20 Eyes", "I Turned Into a Martian", "All Hell Breaks Loose", "Vampira", "Night of the Living Dead", "Skulls", and of course, "Violent World" and "Astro Zombies". This is the best the Danzig-era Misfits have ever sounded, and even the live take of "Mommy Can I Go Out & Kill Tonight" sounds great here. For classic punk enthusiasts, "Walk Among Us" ranks up there with Black Flag's "Damaged", the Dead Kennedys' "Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables", and Minor Threat's "Complete Discography"; real punk rock that wasn't fashioned or produced for radio play. If you are looking to get into the Misfits or just classic punk in general, you can't go wrong with "Walk Among Us".

It doesnt get much more catchy than this for sing-along-able anthemic Punk Rock.If you know the Misfits, and by Misfits I mean the Danzig era, sorry I dont consider the Graves era the Misfits, it's just not the same, then you probabl know that they recorded almost everysong at least twice and sometimes more. Walk among us contains some of the definitive versions of these songs.

I could sing(yell?) 'I turned into a martian' till my head popped off, same with 'Hatebreeders'. Those two in fact would probably have to be my favorites on the album. The best version of 'All Hell..,''Vampira,' and 'Night of the Living dead' available are here. And the Live 'Mommy can I go out and Kill tonight' which was recorded at the same Roxy show that much of Evilive came from.

Great guitar/bass/drum/vocals on what was the best engineered recording of the Glenn(true) era in the misfits evolution. Classic American punk rock about classicly bad horror flicks, how can this formula go wrong? Often imitated, never duplicated. If you are going to try out the Misfits, start out here.

The Misfits in their glory days represented the trashy, over-the-top, and campy side of punk rock in the late '70s and '80s--they were the anti-Minor Threat. They, along with The Cramps, also played up punk's similarities to the mindless fun of '50s rock 'n' roll and rockabilly, given a modern makeover through silly makeup, shocking lyrics, and B-grade horror.

Which is not to say that Glenn Danzig & Co. didn't rock with absolute fury; they certainly did (there's a reason why Metallica and later metal bands loved covering these guys). But they were also infectious and fun like few other punk bands. And Walk Among Us ably demonstrates the height of The Misfits' powers.

No one can talk about prime Misfits without taking note of Glenn Danzig's glorious "Dark Elvis" voice or his hilariously campy and often offensive (though to their credit they never try to come off as serious, unlike bands like Slayer) lyrics that will have even concerned parents singing along despite themselves. Songs about spontaneously turning into martians and zombies eating brains will never go out of style. It's too bad Glenn started buying into his own sp00k image after leaving The Misfits and became an unintentionally hilarious parody of himself, but no such worries here--it's just good, gore-stained fun for the whole family.

The music behind Glenn is an off-the-wall mix of rockabilly-informed punk with a metal edge (this would be even more prominent on the following release Earth A.D./Wolfsblood, which while good isn't in the same league as this album), insanely catchy harmonies, and blazing speed. Every song is a hit, with the manic 20 Eyes, melodic classic Hatebreeders, ragingly intense Mommy Can I Go Out And Kill Tonight?

There are not many albums in my life that could really be described as "life changing". The Beach Boys "Pet Sounds" (the album that got me into music), The Clash's "London Calling" (the album that made me a little more open minded), and this legendary album, the one that got me into "real" punk rock. At the time that I got this, I was listening to crappy skater punk like Anti Flag and Pennywise. This record really changed the way I looked at punk rock.

Onto the album: The songs are great, and some of the catchiest I've ever heard. In fact, the classics "I Turned Into A Martian" and "Astro Zombies" could very well be my favorite songs of all time. The Misfits were great because of their Ramones-esque simplicity, and because of their funny lyrics, which may seem a little shocking ("Collect the heads of little girls and put 'em on my wall"). However, the best part of this band is Glenn Danzig's amazing voice, which may remind you a bit of Elvis gone punk rock.

If I had one minor complaint, it would be this: I have to admit I enjoy the "Collection" versions of "Vampira", "Hatebreeders", "Skulls", "Astro Zombies", and "Braineaters" quite a bit more. There is just a certain passion on those versions that is not on these versions. Despite that complaint, this is easily the best Misfits studio album, and probably the best punk record of all time.
