Most thrash records fail to interest me. However once I accepted that not all thrash bands were going to be as badass as Kreator, I was able to enjoy this more polished Bay Area style of thrash with the hokey singing, tight pants, and puffy shoes. Forbidden's Twisted Into Form is an exceptional album. It's vibrant, focused, and perfectly executed. Rather fun once in a while, especially on a road trip or a party, but still I can't help but feel that this type of thrash was just an awkward evolutionary step between Slayer and Morbid Angel.
