Exodus
The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A

Company: Nuclear Blast
Release: 2007
Reviewer: JP
Rating: 3.5



Exodus has been on quite a destructive rhythm since they signed with Nuclear Blast, steamrolling out three straight quality thrash cds in a row--Tempo Of The Damned, Shovel Headed Kill Machine and the new The Atrocity Exhibition: Exhibit A. Now, this isn't the "Toxic Waltz" of Exodus' bygone days or the out-of-control, blitzkrieg thrash of current tour openers Warbringer; this Exodus is controlled, modern thrash that benefits from a beefy production and the fat, brutal guitar grooves that compliment the rough-tinged vocals of Rob Dukes. No doubt producer Andy Sneap's laying on of hands has kept these guys at top level while band members rotate about. It's longer format of songs aren't on the level of this year's Machine Head CD in terms of presenting a new take on the familiar, but Exodus is showing that they can keep up with the times and themselves. Exhibit B, we await.

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
