5 stars There are 3 death metal albums I rate by maximum points. Individual Thought Patterns will be always one of them. I saw Death live back in 1993 two or three months before this album was released. So still the latest Death album I heard back then was Human. I remember the concert was great but Human still doesn't touch me at all. To record this album Chuck invited King Diamond's guitarist Andy La Rocque and because Andy is one of my favorite axemen of all times I was simply over the moon. Promotional video was made to Philosopher and you can see Steve DiGiorgio with his fretless bass playing those amazing things. So it is on the whole release. With the first sounds of Overactive Imaginations. Andy played solo which sounds like something taken from King Diamond albums. In Human Form and Trapped In A Corner are pure prog metal tracks. Vocals changed a bit. Chuck doesn't yell like in the old times. His voice is still deep but more egdy. Production is clearer and stronger than on Human. Everything is better than before. Vocals, solos, melodies. This is purest excellence. Virtuosity mixed with heaviness. And it's still Death album not something completely different than their previous 2 or 3 releases. Just more technical and with better production. I simply love this album.
