Their second best album, in my opinion. Only a couple of tracks hold it back from being tied for the best. Oh yeah, Warren Haynes also makes a guest appearance! The CD was first released on September 26th, 2000...

And a later (2016) grey vinyl release that will make you dizzy if you follow the advice of the track title with Warren Haynes on it (A3) while playing...

R-8800781-1471266811-4432.jpeg.jpg

 

Musically, I think that this was tied (with Fear of the Dark) for their best effort since Number of the Beast. The problem was the production end of things, specifically on the CD release. That release (as well as the iTunes) was one of the worst offenders of the "loudness wars" (along with the Slayer release from yesterday). Beyond just the lack of any dynamic range to the mix, the CD mastering was recorded way too loud, and the entire album is filled with clipping, to the point I can't listen to it at all. Thankfully, the vinyl masterings were done sanely, do not clip, and actually have some dynamic range to them. From May 30th, 2000...

And...

R-1553386-1228136697.jpeg.jpg

 

This is mainly a make up for missing #90, #91, or #94. It isn't bad, but I feel that it just can't compete at the same level as those three. From March 14th, 2000...

Dax Riggs band. Harder than the solo albums, but softer than Acid Bath. Transitional between the sludgy/doom metal of Acid Bath, and the bluesy/folk rock of the solo stuff. First released on CD on January 25th, 2000...

R-11097466-1509809682-2571.jpeg.jpg

And a later (2017) vinyl release...

R-10581987-1500329595-2416.jpeg.jpg

 

And since I didn't cover any of their stuff in this countdown, I will use this as a make up for #93 and #95 (I didn't forget the others, these are my favorites, though)...

Or maybe more specifically...

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the countdown thread, but especially to @Feeling Froggy, @Duquesne Frog, and @Lyle Lanley IIII for their extra enjoyable efforts! We all love this thread every year and it sure helps to pass the summer days while waiting for the season to get started. But, NO MORE WAITING, FROG FANS! WOOT!!
