Don't Cheer Me Up

Something about the title and cover art on this album strikes me as very odd. It fits the music perfectly though. Aftermath offer up a nice slab of power-thrash here and although some of the songs meander around and overstay their welcome at times, the end result is pretty satisfactory albeit a little strange. The bass playing is really outstanding on this record. I find myself playing this album over and over again without really being able to pinpoint a reason why other than Aftermath just changing it up enough to keep me coming back for more. I feel that they were onto something here and just came up a little short. It sure does make for a fun listen though.
