TGSTK is a collection of songs which sound like REAL anger. From the opening title track, throughout to Sandblasted Skin, this feels like pure real, raw emotion.
War Nerve, two tracks in, is the angriest one of the lot. "F*** this world, for all its worth, every inch of planet earth". A great song and one to put on if you need to release some aggression.
There is utter filth here as well. Drag the Waters is nasty as you can get, with a sinister undertone and great riff.
10's is slow but no-less dark. Spacious and not really heavy, this song slides along and also has some of the best vocals from Phil on the album. A gorgous solo later, and we have had the standard mid-paced song done.
Suicide Note Pt.1 is beautiful and mellow and not at all in keeping with the remainder of the album. Pt 2. is the opposite, and another true song of anger.
Living Through Me has a great driving riff and one of their greatest ever chorus sections - southern blues metal at its best.
The Underground In America is one of Pantera's most under-rated songs ever. All of the above with more groove than a groovy thing on National Groove Day.
Also worth paying attention to Phil's lyrics on this album. Clever, well written, taking no prisoners.
