Anthrax: Persistence Of Time (Island LP/Cassette/CD)

Jack Barron, New Musical Express, 1 September 1990

TICK TOCK, tick tock begins this album. Predictable or what? Then the bowels of the earth open up and you are farted via geetars and drums at light-speed into somewhere that isn't very cosy or rosy... namely Anthrax's bleak vision of life where everyone is a turd getting on their case and there is precious little satisfaction to be had in this scab-rat-infested alley called time.
