Earth A.D. - (1983)

With their second album, the incredibly short Earth A.D., Misfits speed up the tempo even more, which combined with their amateur musicianship to produce a wall of thrashy sonic murk. Additionally, Earth A.D. doesn't have the same catchy melodies that made previous Misfits records so exciting; however, the cassette and CD reissues append the three-song Die, Die My Darling single, which injects a burst of melodicism that makes the set more listenable. Dedicated fans will certainly want this album; others might be more inclined to hear it broken up over the two-CD compilations, which contain all of its tracks.
