4 stars This was the album that started Death's prog albums for me, such a sublime and aggressive collection of songs. Released in 1993 this was Death's fifth album and marked a more freeform/jazzy sounding drum tone, now mixed with really brutal guitar and bass sounds that can be quite a package, add in the late and never forgotton Chuck Schuldiner and Gene (Strapping Young Lad) Hoglan into the mix and its metal heaven. Now we have some fantastic songs on this album, standouts for myself would include TRAPPED IN A CORNER, OVERACTIVE IMAGINATION, THE PHILOSOPHER and IN HUMAN FORM although the rest of the album is simply brilliant as well. Production wise there was nothing really bugging me really except the odd time i had to turn it up quite a bit to hear some of the instruments as it was released quite a while ago, but we digress;

Overactive Imagination ? - 10/10 In Human Form ? 9/10 Jealousy ? 8/10 Trapped in a Corner ? 10/10 Nothing Is Everything ? 8/10 Mentally Blind ? 9/10 Individual Thought Patterns ? 9/10 Destiny ? 8/10 Out of Touch ? 8/10 The Philosopher ? 10/10

My Conclusion? now although its not their strongest album its still a classic example of a death metal band really reaching their peek and finally realising what there good at, highly reccomended.
