Better late than sorry!

"I've always been very dedicated to the metal of Flotsam and Jetsam. This album is roughly somewhere in the middle of their period, counting backwards from now. If you've never heard about them before and you would like to begin a flying start. I would strongly recommend "Drift" as I believe this is one of their strongest (if not the strongest) album ever! Everything adds up for these guys! The tracklist consists of 10 songs. Normally when you decide and opening for an album you would like a track to catch the listener from the start. I believe the discussion in the Flotcamp took ages! Glad i'm not to decide! All 10 tracks are simply highest standard! Truly solid quality!"
It really is that good...

"One reviewer said this was the best heavy metal album ever. That's a pretty bold statement but he just might be right. I bought this album the day it came out back in 95 and I still listen to it all the time. The lyrics are much better then your typical metal fare and Eric A.K's vocal performance is truly amazing. The production captures the energy of the band perfectly. It may take a few listens to catch all the nuances in the songs but I think that's a sign of a great album. If your a fan of heavy metal and don't have Drift then there's a problem."
Drift - The best heavy metal album ever

"Drift, quite simply, defines heavy metal. Every track on this album is a piece of art. This is the best heavy metal album ever - and if you are a fan of the excellent Momentum by Enertia, you'll know what you are getting - straight up vanilla metal delivered with precision and power.Flotsam and Jetsam's 5th album, this is also far and away their best release. Eric AKs vocals throughout must surely grant him "The voice of metal". The song writing is excellent, and as you'd expect from Neil Kernon, production is awesome. The album builds on the sound that was started with Quatro - but goes much further than Quatro did in defining everything that is great about heavy metal.Lyrics throughout are striking - the whole album screams defiance in the face of adversity. And the clever and catching riffs keep everything moving at an energetic pace. There's also an interesting blend of sounds - with the mystic eastern flavour of the intro to Empty Air, through the melodic power of Missing, to the thundering Smoked Out.Flotsam and Jetsam have produced a number of great albums, and two complete classics (Drift and their awesome debut Doomsday for the Deceiver - now nearly 20 years old and still sounding as fresh as ever). If you are into metal, you owe it to yourself to buy Drift."
