Staff review by

Suicidal Tendencies was one of the more influential and important bands of the hard core/thrash cross over. Their first two release - the absolutely ripping self titled debut and the decent "Join the Army" were punk records with decidedly metallic influences.

Their third release, 1988's "How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today?" saw them cross over to the thrash metal side of the fence.

Guest review by

How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today is Suicidal Tendencies' third studio album and their departure from their previous hardcore punk era which was heavily featured on their self titled debut and their second album Join The Army. Here, the band is starting to transform, and Suicidal Tendencies is one of if not the most important and influential band in the genre of crossover thrash.

Rating: 9 Even though my interest in thrash has, Sylosis aside, just about disappeared since the genre pretty much helped get me into metal, I continue to return to this album, due to the well-written songs, great lead guitar work and most of all the general fun atmosphere about it. The Miracle and Suicyco Mania are perhaps slightly lacking, but the first few and last few songs (including Surf And Slam, which is hugely enjoyable) on the album are almost entirely crackers. Aside from perhaps Sabbat's History Of A Time To Come, this is probably the 'old' thrash metal album I listen to most these days.

  I like this album but Lights... Camera... Revolution! is better to me :0
