3. They’re Obnoxious
Acid Reign may have originally been active for only a few short years but they were responsible for one of UK Thrash’s greatest albums, the sorely underrated Obnoxious.
Released in 1990, Acid Reign reined in their lunacy on Obnoxious and the result was an album that embraced a previously untapped progressive edge and a flair for intelligent and complex Thrash.
“Thoughtful Sleep” remains the album’s highlight, a technical excursion into a story of child neglect which surprises with its schizophrenic myriad of time changes and personalities. A highly original composition, in an ideal world this song alone would have elevated Acid Reign into the big leagues in the early 90’s but, as it turned out, they were unjustly overlooked.
If you missed this underrated classic the first time round, make amends fool! Your second chance has arrived!
