Obituary has Done better...But hey...The cover is cool :)

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This CD does not belong in the same room as Cause of Death or World does not belong in the same City.THey tryed to make a catchy hardcore death metal albumn but they failed.It almost seems like they rushed this record just to finish their Contract and move on to other things.The riffs are choppy and Boring.The drums are not up to par.And even Tardys vox seem off.If you are buying an Obituary CD for the first time Get any one but this one.This is Obituarys swan song...they broke up after the tour for this CD,and maybe that was a good idea...."
Doesn't come close to Obituary's past greats

"1997's "Back From the Dead" was a step down from the past masterpieces that Obituary fans came to expect from "Slowly We Rot" and "Cause of Death". There isn't much diversity here, but the band's patented pummeling drum assault and John Tardy's great vocals save "Back From the Dead" from mediocrity. Opening track "Threatening Skies" is superb and an Obituary classic, while "Platonic Disease" and "Feed on the Weak" are solid. As a whole, the album is shorter than one would hope, and long time Obituary fans who grew up on the previously mentioned albums will be very disappointed here. New fans to the band are better off checking out "Cause of Death" and "Slowly We Rot" first before checking out "Back From the Dead", and hear first hand one of the greatest death metal bands of all time in their prime."
Definitely underrated !!

"I don't understand the lackluster reviews for this album because I definitely consider it as one of their better albums. Instead of the constant slow/doomy sound the band is known for, this CD is more fast paced which makes for a much better listen. As for John Tardy's vocals, I think they keep getting better as each CD is released (I can barely stand his vocals on 'The End Complete'!!) If you like their latest comeback release 'Frozen in Time' then I would recommend this CD without a doubt!"
