It's not that So Far, So Good... So What! is a bad album through and through - Into the Lungs of Hell, for instance, is one of the best thrash metal instrumentals out there. It's just that when it's bad, it well and truly shits the bed. The botched cover version of the Sex Pistols' Anarchy In the UK, in particular, is such a toe-curlingly cringeworthy moment that it largely ruins the first side for me - it doesn't help that Set the World Afire is a bit overlong. The second side makes up for lost ground to some extent, but overall the album is a bit of a huge mess, the product of lineup instabilities and out-of-control behaviour which meant that whilst there are some good songs on here, it simply can't hold a handle either to the two preceding albums or to the upcoming masterpiece of Rust In Peace.
