The Skull - FTWAA
« on: November 07, 2014, 05:22:21 AM »

For those which are asleep is one bad ass album! Doom riffs galore...so good; so despondent. You can feel the depression and frustration! The swagger is back...the lyrics are dreadful, but in a good way that make you question the fairness of existence. "Sick of it all" and "Till the sun turns black" are easily two of the greatest Trouble songs ever! Eric and Oly shine...and the guitar distortion and riffing and feedback are near-perfect! THIS is a classic doom record!

It's like Trouble with even heavier guitars.

I would agree with that.

I just got this today. The Trouble with heavier guitars description is dead on.

I'm on my 2nd listen and really digging this a lot.

"Send Judas Down" &  "For Those Which Are Asleep"  are my favorites.

Stellar cd purchase.  3/5 trouble plus those two was one of those greater than the sum of its parts type situation.  #11 by a hair.  Real big badass 70's sound, balls for miles, then that beautiful twin guitar riff stuff, and the rhythm section know just what to do.  Great, great record that really updated the classic Trouble sound to new heights.  Looking forward to the follow up more than blackfinger OR trouble.

Picked this up at The Skull/Mothership/Witch Mountain show last Saturday (10/05/19). Got this one for $10 and the new one for $15. Really good musical structures and playing. I kept waiting for the letdown, but it never came. Very consistent album.
