Listen closely at the end of this one for some hilarious studio bantering between Rick and Gary! If there's one thing that got better, though, it's the solos. At the beginning of the review, I mentioned the bad covers of Exodus albums, but the back of the CD version takes the bun.

Then theres "The Lunatic Parade" which is this albums exodsu to "The Toxic Waltz" it's very slow and grinding, by heavy as fuck, with some very catchy riffs and vocal lines, I'll skip to "Only Death Decides" which is another favorite of mine off this, great riffs, fast but catchy at the same time, and another very catchy chorus There are a few riffs on iimpact that range from familiarity to all-out plaigarism.
But the lyrics are not solely correlated to the reunification of Germany. And things end on an even higher note still with the punk-infused thrasher "Thrash Under Pressure", clocking in at under 3 minutes yet cutting heads with the same ferocity as its near 7 minute predecessor.

As always the bassguitar is hardly present. Which brings me to my next point: For the most part, this album is great from beginning to end. Just like its predecessor the album was once again filled with riff after riff only this time the average song was lenghtier. The title track of "BBB" had its slower parts, most notably the chorus, so what's the deal with criticizing this album for that element?

The crunch factor from the guitars and the irreverent snarls of Steve Souza meld together perfectly and, at times, almost sound like they might have influenced the handiwork of the two latest Overkill albums.
Heads They Win, Tails You Lose is a track that's so long it may take a few listens before you can appreciate it. Other than one almost accidental-sounding destroyer of worlds "Only Death Decides"iimminent is filled with angsty imminetn crap that would make the later Clash call shenanigans.
