4 stars An original creation and the form that this band did from the flow of Thrash Metal and Black Metal at the dawn in the flow of the band that the derivation and the music character develop further might be indeed unique. It is necessary to be evaluated as a band that establishes one music character as a position of this band in the activity of the band of various Thrash Metal. The establishment of the music character might have had the part where it had been reflected in the work mainly that it was a part where the dash feeling and the technology had been valued. And, it will have been a band that exactly established one flow in the field of Death Metal. It had the part represented as a band that played the role to promote the flow of Thrash Metal to the part of the following development. Misgivings buried in the band where individuality and a large amount of active Death bred oppositely as a band that derived from the field of Thrash Metal and Black Metal, too might have been conceived, too. However, Death will be able to count the difficult time as a splendidly advanced by original directionality band even in the 90's. Death traced the transition and the history of the change in various forms and the music characters as a form of the band. And, it is likely to have ridden on the stream indeed with the development of the music character as a part as the Solo project. The band made the musician according to the music character and the perfection after "Human" that had been announced in 1991 and production and the originality of the employing album were made effective. The member who has been appointed with this album is Andy LaRocque of a guitar player who was active with Gene Hoglan and King Diamond of a drum player who was active with Dark Angel. The part where a unique musician was arranged respectively might be splendid. Progressing of music to listen by "Spiritual Healing" and "Human". And, it composes in the further arrangement of the key point of the dash feeling and the melody everywhere completing the composition and the route of the complicated tune as one result. The perfection of this album might be one result of exactly involving the dash feeling and an original estheticism and consideration to the part of the extreme. After announcing this album, Death dares the tour. In addition, the tour in Europe was dared adding Craig Locicero active with Forbidden.

In "Overactive Imagination", Riff of the guitar by original harmony and a complex rhythm are features. Complete, heavy Riff. And, rhythmically by putting fast and slow. Or, it storms about Blast Beat that flows from Solo of the guitar. The band boasts of a complete perfection.

The composition of an intermittent rhythm of "In Human Form" is impressive in original Riff and the melody. Melody and rhythm developed one after another. And, development of a unique melody and a steady rhythm might be splendid. The technical part that the band does is complete.

As for "Jealousy", the melody that develops with the complexity twines round the rhythm of six. And, the flow that the rhythm of 5 and 3 is emphasized from an original melody is splendid. And, Solo of a part that shifts to the rhythm of six and a complete guitar. The composition and the perfection of the tune are splendid.

As for "Trapped In A Corner", original harmony twines round the rhythm of seven. The rhythm that puts fast and slow continues. And, complete individuality is drawn out from the storm of the rhythm and Riff to emphasize the rhythm of two. Development and the idea of the tune have a splendid perfection. Guitar Solo in close relation to heavy Riff. And, rhythmically to emphasize 1 and 3. The tension has good atmosphere.

"Nothing Is Everything" has a rhythm that puts fast and slow in the basis and an intermittent melody. And, the melody of harmony with a more unique guitar. And, it shifts to the flow that multiuses the rhythm of six and the dash feeling is produced. The technology of the band and the composition of music might be considerably calculated.

"Mentally Blind" shifts to the part of the melody with a good anacatesthesia from the start including the flow with the dash feeling in Riff of a heavy guitar. Solo of the guitar considers beauty. This tune will have individuality. Individuality shines in an intermittent melody and the rhythm.

"Individual Thought Patterns" continues the dash feeling from the melody of complete harmony. Riff of a heavy guitar twines round a steady rhythm. The developing flow has the tension. A complex rhythm and the melody have individuality.

"Destiny" starts by the arpeggio of a beautiful guitar. The tension is continued attended with a complex rhythm and the melody. After the rhythm of 5 and 3 is emphasized from the part of an original melody, it shifts to the part of the rhythm of fast six. The composition is unique. And, an intermittent flow is accompanied from a steady dash feeling.

"Out Of Touch" rushes into the part of the dash feeling from Riff of a heavy solemnity. After the rhythm of 8 and 7 is emphasized, the rhythm of six is multiused. Steady rhythm and original melody. And, their good elements have gone out of Riff and Solo of a unique guitar indeed.

As for "The Philosopher", the rhythm of nine twines round the wriggling guitar. Complex composition drawn out from melody of heavy guitar. Solo of unique guitar. The line of Bass also contributes to the tune.

The creation of the original music that Death did in Metal Band that piles up various histories is establishment of the music character with a progressive part. And, it might have reached this album at last as one result.
