Limited double album with gatefold cover and three bonus tracks These are your favourite Anthrax songs from the Turbin/Belladonna era Anthrax. You voted and we listened. So writes Scott Ian in the liners to The Greater of Two Evils, Anthraxs tribute to their past, their fans, and their present tense. Message board voters built the track list, and they did well, hitting on a mix of classics and fan favourites from the groups first five albums. But Two Evils also unites the bands early creative zenith with the resurgent promise of 2003s Weve Come For You All. That album wasnt a comeback, since Anthrax had never really left. But it was definitely a return to form after a few years spent casting around for direction. Hearing the 2004 line-up of Ian, John Bush, Charlie Benante, Frank Bello, and Rob Caggiano absolutely rip into cuts like -Metal Thrashing Mad and Caught in a Mosh — and have their passion matched by raw and thumping production — combines the thrill of returning to a great old album with knowing that the band's loving it just as much as you. Bush is particularly engaged for Indians, and Caggianos frenetic soloing to open A.I.R. is a perfect foil to the tracks near-hardcore bottom end. The beginning of Madhouse sounds like magnets ripping away iron plating, and I Am the Law and Gung-Ho are still clinics on thrash. Anthrax fans are sure to love The Greater of Two Evils, especially since they picked the tracks. But whats even better about the set is how vital it makes the band itself sound. Track listing: 1.
