• suicidal tendencies Suicidal Tendencies (25th Anniversary Edition) (140g coloured vinyl LP, £13.25)

    label: Frontier

    Fast, furious and funny, Suicidal Tendencies' self-titled debut owed much more to hardcore punk than to the later hardcore/heavy metal hybrid they would become known for, but it's still quite possibly their best album. Mike Muir proves himself an articulate lyricist and commentator, delving into subjects like alienation, depression and nonconformist politics with intelligence and humour. The band behind him is aggressive and speedy, but never sinks into an overly fast sonic blur. Contains the classic rant "Institutionalized". Tracks: 1 Suicide's an Alternative/You'll Be Sorry, 2 Two Sided Politics, 3 I Shot the Devil, 4 Subliminal, 5 Won't Fall in Love Today, 6 Institutionalized, 7 Memories of Tomorrow, 8 Possessed, 9 I Saw Your Mommy..., 10 Fascist Pig, 11 I Want More, 12 Suicidal Failure
