The 'other' Swiss power trio have matured from their sophomore effort with leaps and bounds. Just to name a few; the production gives Tommy Barons' swirling guitar playing a true spotlight that he lacked in their previous, thinly produced albums. Markys' lyrics are much more deep and lacking in juvenile ranting, and while Rons' vocals are still the groups' sore thumb, his vocals are buried a tad under the mix. That small short coming is easily ignored though.

Rating: 9 I prefer the production of 'Mental vortex' and 'grin', but in terms of songwriting i would say this album iis definitely the best from coroner. Each and every song is so tight, and the last song is one epic way to end an album.

  My least favorite from Coroner. Lacks the edge of Punishment For Decadence and the sophistication of Mental Vortex. Too generic for me.
Die By My Hand and Last Entertainment are standouts, though.

Lols, if there is one thrash band with non generic albums (except their debut), it is Coroner. Oh well... Opinions I guess. I just think the term is wrong comparing the band with the rest of the thrash scene at that time and now.

Their best album for me.

And for me (even if Grin is very close)

Grin would be thrid for me.
1. No More Color
2. Punishment For Decadence
3. Grin
4. Mental Vortex
and then quite a gap to
5. R.I.P.

Downgrade Punishment to 4th position, upgrade Grin and MV, and you have mine

Yeah, maybe "generic" was a bad choice of words, but it still seemed like just another Thrash album to me. Doesn't have that spark that makes me say "Another fantastic album by Coroner." Maybe I oughta relisten to it.

I daresay that DOA and Read My Scars are the two best songs Coroner ever wrote. Oh well, two of the very best anyway

Rating: 10 I haven't heard Grin or Mental Vortex yet, but this one I really dig. Some really catchy tech thrash, 'Last Entertainment' is probably my favourite.
