Guest review by
There it is the fifth album of Death in six years. The band hasn't had an album the year before releasing this one and they didn't waste their time much, touring the world, being kept busy as hell throughout the whole time. It is explainable then, that this would be probably Death's weakest album. Not that it is a bad album. It is just that Death are so good, that this release is not one, which could go into one's collection of Death albums on the top shelf, it will go on the lowest one.

Angry with all the crap evolving around Death (not being able to do the UK tour in the height of the Extravaganza tour of Europe due to financial irresponsibility of people "who did business in the band," then as a result a $14,000 debt, and just all those mendacious and greedy people in the music industry), Chuck teamed up with King Diamond guitarist Andy LaRoque, ex-Dark Angel drummer Gene Hoglan, and the fretless bass maestro Steve DiGiorgio (who also performed on the previous album Human) and recorded a masterpiece called Individual Thought Patterns.

Death the band died musically, for me, when they stopped playing death metal. So that would be after Spiritual Healing

Hey, isn't Human actually a very death metal record?

Borderline I would say, borderline at most.

One question i read in this website "" about the "The Philosopher" meaning lyric and someone wrote : "I never thought about it before, but this song very easily be against Paul Masivdal. Paul is a philosopher, and many believe he is homosexual. I just can't picture Chuck getting mad at a guy like Paul..."
is this could be true ??
anyway i love this album specially THE PHILOSOPHER .....

Paul is a philosopher, and many believe he is homosexual.

There is no guesswork anymore. Paul and Sean Reinert both publicly came out as gay in May 2014.
