Arguably Suicidal Tendencies' finest, and certainly most adventurous, album, 1990's LIGHTS CAMERA REVOLUTION features little in the way of the Los Angeles-based band's brash hardcore roots. Instead, it opts for an inventive thrash-metal-influenced sound, as best revealed on the opening mini-epic, "You Can't Bring Me Down," which presents frontman Mike Muir at his furious best, and showcases guitarist Rocky George's fierce lead work. LIGHTS also finds the group moving in a funk-metal direction on the stomping tunes "Lovely" and "Send Me Your Money," tracks that shine the spotlight on bassist Robert Trujillo, who would form the Infectious Grooves side-project with Muir. Skate-punk purists will be further dismayed by the surprisingly melodic "Alone," which finds Muir singing rather than shouting, rounding out a dynamic album that places ST in the eclectic alt-metal category inhabited by acts such as Fishbone--who, incidentally, would welcome George as a member years later.
