4 stars I bought this album as a teenager, and I recall I enjoyed the fast and aggressive elements of this music back then. Somehow the album still sounded quite complicated when compared to music other rock groups I listened then, Napalm Death, Carcass, Sepultura etc. As I returned to this record later as an adult, I found it as truly refreshing listening experience. There are lots of very interesting and skillfully played rhythmic ideas on the disc. Also, as I am not particularly a fan of "progressive metal genre", I enjoy this much more as Death's music lacks many annoying elements which I believe are the foundation of that style. There are no relations to neo prog vibes, and the lyrics contemplate about people's social problems instead of mighty dragon slaying warriors. I respect this highly. Most memorable tracks are the opener "Flattening of Emotions", which has some very peculiar different timed drum and guitar parts. Also "Together as One" is a great heavy composition, and the instrumental "Cosmic Sea" is also fine, having the only few seconds of softer playing on the whole album as a contrast. Warmly recommended, if you are not allergic towards aggressive music.
