This great thrash band sells out and goes somewhat grunge. Still a great album but when I listen to it, it reminds me of Pearl Jam, a band that I tried to like but now hate. Grunge just flat out sucks and almost destroyed good rock/metal.

A perfect example of a band chnaging with the times. While they never "made it" as a thrash band, they did some air play with this record. After this one they seemed to have disappeared off the face of the planet. Their next effort didn't cut it & they eventually disbanded. They are know for having once Metallica Jason Newsted in the band at one time. Let me tell you, even with him in the band they were average at best. SIXXSWINE 11.25.04

I agree with SixxSwine, in that F&J owe most of their name recognition to Jason Newsted coming from their ranks. On their own, they're B-list thrash at best, with Death Angel-like melodic vocals and, honestly, not a ton of overwhelming hooks. I guess Cuatro was kind of their "sellout" album, as it has some midpaced mainstream-metal jams to go along with the faceless thrash. I actually like "Swatting At Flies" and "Secret Square" a hell of a lot, and "Wading Through The Darkness" is good as well, once it gets going. "The Message" and"Never To Remain" are all right too, but honestly, aside from those songs, this is pretty generic. And it's not helped by an production that tries to sound like the Black Album, but with an extremely thin, trebly guitar sound that can be hard to listen to, honestly.

Quite a good album but with a different approach in music direction...i mean is not a 100% thrash...tracks 2,6,7,8,9,10,11 & 12 are fine ones to me...83/100
