Flotsam and Jetsam - _Unnatural Selection_
(Metal Blade, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Well, it just seems to be going pretty good for Flotsam and Jetsam these days. Over the last few years, the band has managed to put out some quality material, breaking away from the generic sound of metal music and adding their own sound/style into the fold. Their last LP _High_ was a kick-ass record that fueled the intensity of their music with rampant sounds of complicated riffs meshed with a sinister vocal snarl. It was addictive. With _US_ we see F&J continuing on with their trademark sound, but venturing off just a tad bit with the material and not being afraid to add some eccentric ideas into the fold. Y'know? Make the music breathe some creativity every once in a while. The production is clear and, when mixed with a truly intense guitar sound, _US_ sounds top notch. Fans of the band will no doubt be pleased and other metal music fans will probably dig it as well.
