Album Review

Though they had recently lost lyricist and principal songwriter Jason Newsted to Metallica, Arizona thrashers Flotsam & Jetsam neatly avoided the sophomore slump with 1988's No Place for Disgrace. The album basically repeats the formula of their debut but benefits from a cleaner yet still-in-your face production job. And while Newsted collects a few co-writing credits, guitarist Michael Gilbert takes over, guiding the band through the excellent title track, the morbid "Dreams of Death," and a chaotic version of Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting." "Escape from Within" is one of the album's two standouts, slowly building from its melodic intro into full-on thrashing intensity, gliding toward an apparent finale, then exploding again. The second standout has to be the brutal "I Live You Die," which gallops along on its massive bassline, twin guitar harmonies, and abrupt start-stop dynamics.

Customer Reviews

Flotsam & Jetsam at their best

Flotsam & Jetsam outdo themselves with "No Place for Disgrace". This album goes further in what was heard on "Doomsday for the Deceiver" and goes all out thrash and melodic in every track. Best songs are the title track, I live you die,escape from within, misguided fortune, and saturday night's alright. But if your your like me or are really into this band you'll get the whole album here or at your local record store.

Flotz til eath

One of, if not THE most underrated metal album of all time, and i go back in metal 30 years. When this came out, i thought it actually out-performed Master of Puppets, and ranked up there with Rust in Piece and Reigning Blood as the best thrash albums of all time...mike

classic

First concert ever, 198? , Flotsam opened for King Diamond. First song was Hard on you*.I was hooked. Ive had this tape and CD in my collection ever since.
Great heavy , thick, quick riffs. Never disappoints.
