This is the best album of the Steve Tucker Period, and a great Morbid Angel album in its own right, This and Gateways are at least on par with Domination to me.

I really like this album and agree with it being the best of the Steve Tucker era. I like it better than Blessed and Domination personally.

Its overlong and contains many unnecessary deviations. Some of the songs seem like they were thrown together without too much thought behind them. Other than these flaws some of this album is still great to listen to.

This album has more organic production than Domination, akin to that of Covenant, but most of the songs are aimless and just wander around trying for brutality. Don't get me wrong, still a fun album, but it's got its flaws. Most of the instrumentals are kinda crap, too, though "Hymn to a Gas Giant" makes for a good prelude to "Invocation of the Continual One".

"Nothing is Not" has a great opening riff and is overall a great track, though.

Totally agree with the above.

IMO FFttF was the start of Morbid Angel's decline.

Probably, but I still think that Gateways to Annihilation was a step up from FFttF. Sure, it had the overproduced sound of Domination, but it beats out FFttF in being more cohesive, and it beats out Domination by hitting a little harder. After that, Heretic was kinda ass, with only a couple good tracks and a bunch of stupid crap. We all know how IDI turned out, so I won't really talk about that one.

I agree that Gateways was better than FFttF in terms of the music.

I actually love Domination but found FFttF had some really awful "songs".

I'll need to give Gateways another try. My brother swears by that album.

And yes Heretic was ass. From memory it was like a shittier version of FFtF. I think I liked one song on that one.

Domination is great, too, to be sure. I just like Gateways slightly more. And I think the only track I really like on Heretic is the opening track, which is why I've never bothered to buy that album.

This is the best album of the Steve Tucker Period

I remember Gateways being better than this. Gonna have to re listen.

It could have been better than Domination but the last minutes are damn worthless.
By blood... Resurrection?
By body... Redemption?
By God... Domination?
By Pilate... Crucifixion!

Wow Nothing Is Not sounds like a Gojira song sooooo much! Morbid Angel must have been a great inspiration for them.
