This is the best and only good 90's Anthrax disc. Stick to the 80's stuff.

Realmente prefiero la voz en vivo de Joey Belladona, pero es un buen album...VIVA CHILE

From: StayHeavy13 Date: February 17, 2003 at 22:37
An excellent album, driven by the intense vocals of John Bush.

From: Martyr Date: March 9, 2003 at 23:13
Massive change in sound for Anthrax with this one. Belladonna is out, Bush is in. This album is heavier, cathier and much more diverse musically than all previous efforts from these guys. Songs stand the test of time well. Definately worth going out and buying.

"Sound of White Noise" will forever be a classic of heavy metal.

From: Zze Date: October 16, 2003 at 21:42
I have learned to like this album, since I disliked it at first, because it sounds different and the voice of Bush is different as well. however , even changing mssively ( as stated above, I agree ) this record cannot be ignored and its a great one, specially on songs like Package Rebellion and Potters Field, however, donīt expect the same Anthrax of " Persistence of Time" for example. Its really different. more Hardcore and Weird sounds thrown on the mix than any of the previous releases. Hey C

From: ED Date: June 13, 2004 at 18:42
Well, I love ANTHRAX and I love the song ONLY from this album. But I will consider JOEY BELLADONNA was the best singer that ANTHRAX had. Not to say that John Bush is bad. But I would like better BELLADONNA with ANTHRAX and Bush with ARMORED SAINT. And yes, maybe their best 90's album.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 16:45
Complete change of sound to more of a 90's alternative metal band. However, Anthrax pull this off better than anyone could have expected and create their third classic album. Tracks like "Only", "Room For One More", and "Potters Field" are great metal tracks while "Black Lodge" is a strong ballad. 10/10

From: SIXXSWINE Date: July 5, 2004 at 20:48
This was the debut of John Bush as a member of Anthrax. Though, it was kind of ackward at first, he was the highlight on this record. This was also the last record with that second guitarist, that little short mother from Fantasy Island... While this was the beginning of the band straying away from their Thrash Metal sound, it could also be called their Magnum Opus, as they would never capture this energy again. If you own only one record by them make it this one. You won't be sorry. 6\m/

I agree with most of the comments so far. Massive change in sound, but Anthrax did truly a great job and came out with a record that is nothing short of a classic. Many people talk shit of this album because it's different from the previous ones. But if you can get beyond those unreasonable positions, you'll recognize that this is actually a very very good record. 9 out of 10!

From: eddie Date: April 4, 2005 at 15:25
Joey Belladonna, Scott Ian, Dan Spitz, Charlie Benante, and Frank Bello are together again this year! Check for details!

From: underworld king Date: May 27, 2010 at 21:26
As to what Eddie said five years earlier with the exception to Dan Spitz.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 13, 2021 at 15:09
It came as a big shock to most people when Anthrax fired Joey Belladonna and replaced him with John Bush of Aromred Saint. Both bands were coming off their best albums (Persistence of Time and Symbol of Salvation). Perhn surprisingly, Bush's maiden voyage with Anthrax sounds like a mix of those two albums, with some flavor from Metallica's Black Album thrown in. The music is far less thrashy than before, however I think some of the comments above calling it "alternative" are overstating their case. Sound of White Noise is a fantastic, diverse record, and the songs are built around Bush's deeper, grittier voice, a big change from Belladonna's high wail. The disc gets off to a slammin' start with several top highlights in a row. "Room For One More" should have been a massive hit on MTV and metal radio, but according to Scott Ian's book, its release as a single was bungled by the label. The Twin Peaks-inspired "Black Lodge" is a somber ballad about watching someone succumb to addiction, s

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 13, 2021 at 15:14
... similar lyrical terrain, but a world away in tone from "Efilnikufesin." Other notable songs include "Hy Pro Glo" and "1000 Points of Hate" ("I wash my fuckin' hands of this," Bush rages). The band would be able to rise to this level again on various songs throughout the rest of Bush's tenure, but never for a full album.
