Flotsam and Jetsam - No Place for Disgrace (1988)
Flotsam and Jetsam's second album doesn't impress me much more than the debut to be honest. They still sound a bit like a second-rate Anthrax, mostly due to vocalist Eric sounding like Joey Belladonna at times. Their style of thrash metal is on the light side, slotting in comfortably alongside bands like Metal Church, only occasionally stepping up the aggression.
Things start off positively with the title track which is probably the highlight of the album for me. But throughout the rest, I find things ranging from mildly entertaining (N.E Terror, Misguided Fortune, P.A.A.B.) through to downright ordinary (Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting). Overall, I guess Flotsam and Jetsam just don't have the X factor for me. I don't find myself getting to the end of their albums (the ones I've heard) and wanted to hear more. It's a struggle to get to the end in the first place.
