      Death's fourth album (1991).

      The seminal 'Human' inaugurates the second half of Death's career, the junction at which the old-school thrash fans disembark and the prog fans take a keen interest. That's not to say that this is an entirely different band, and indeed anyone who enjoyed the heaviness of earlier albums such as 'Leprosy' should be satisfied with the even more devastating production job here, it's just that the guitar spots that tended to carve out their own, indulgent sections in each song on the previous 'Spiritual Healing' are now more extensive and more experimental, leading to the full-blown instrumental 'Cosmic Sea.'

      On the other hand, this is a much more concisely edited affair than the somewhat messy 'Spiritual Healing,' as even though songs and instruments insist on playing at varied speeds and time signatures, they all call it quits before things have a chance to become tiresome. For the first time, every song remains distinctive throughout, unlike earlier albums which tended to boast variety in the intros before the sound descended into the same bashing death metal, and the dominant lead guitar stylings of 'Suicide Machine' set in place what will come to be seen as Chuck Schuldiner's trademark.
