OVERKILL / Horrorscope (1991)

Green cover with orangey bits? It must be an Overkill album. That same sense of familiarity extends to the music. too. There are a few surprises, such as the addition of a second guitarist and the unexpected intro, but mostly it's what you'd expect. There are some hits, some misses and some maybes.
I've scored it higher than The Years of Decay (1989) simply because I feel it works slightly better as a listening experience from beginning to end. I skip fewer tracks on Horrorscope but also freely admit that there's nothing on it that tops the power of my Songs of Note choices from the previous album.
