Whether or not you disregard it for a thrash-prog experiment gone wrong or just the album that featured the two guys from Primus (Les Claypool and Larry LaLonde) before forming that band, it won’t really matter
Not surprisingly, it's usually Sane Asylum's by-the-book thrashings that come off forced - not its more experimental moments, and one can clearly appreciate why its members eventually had to go express their interests elsewhere. However, as one of the Bay Area thrash scene's most original, if flawed documents, Sane Asylum remains worthy of pursuit for serious thrash enthusiasts.
