Death's second album is very similiar to the first yet much more mature. The comparison between these albums seems to define perfect progression, and something most fans would crave for. A proper line up has also been established this time around, with Chuck recruting old mate Rick Rozz for the other guitar spot. Basically, this time around the songs are no less intense or heavy, but much more memorable and well constructed. Tighter musicianship and production this time as well, plus there's more leads, and these tend to be classic. Lyrically, its still dark and morbid, but improved since Chuck doesn't seem to be as vulgar. Songwise there isn't a lot of variation, or much worth commenting on the title track and "Choke On it" are probably my favorites, they're all of about equal quality though, and there are some killer leads (like in "Born Dead").
