Product Description


For Pantera, rage flows like water from a tap. Far Beyond Driven vents the band's animosity in a maelstrom of hateful harangues fuelled by thunderous drumbeats, piercing guitar noise, and raw-throated vocals. --Jon Wiederhorn

5.0 out of 5 stars Record Pressing Flaw April 26 2010
By Kevin
Format:LP Record
There seems to be a pressing flaw on side B. The song starts on the initial vinyl groove and skips into the song on the main groove. I just got a replacement from Amazon and side B has the same error on the replacement. I have tried the album on two different players. Is anybody else having this issue?

3.0 out of 5 stars heavy but not as entertaining May 31 2004
By Frank
Format:Audio CD
yes, they did out-heavy, or whatever you wanna call it, Vulgar display of power. but heavy doesnt necesarily mean good. the first 4 tracks are AWESOME even though "im broken" is the only one with a solo. tracks 1-3 have some weird ass sound effects that i dont even bother saying they are solos, as for the rest of the cd the songs are just fillers. i can't believe they went from cowboys to vulgar to this crap. cowboys was good, vulgar was even better but this is when things start going downhill for pantera. the next 2 releases are aweful though. Great southern trendkill is just a bunch of noise and reiventing the steel is the worst they ever made. this cd gets to the point where you wanna turn it off and it gets old fast . at first i loved it but afer a while it gets boring. there are only like 5 solos but they are REALLY Good solos. the black sabbath cover is nicely done but doesnt seem to find its place on this album. i would recommend this album only if you want to own every cd,but for casual listeners get cowboys from hell or vulgar, heck why not get "power metal" .. their glam days were better than there later 90s stuff

5.0 out of 5 stars Pantera are STRONGER THAN ALL!!! May 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is not only Pantera heaviest and best outing, but it was the first ever heavy metal album to ever debut at No.1 on the billboard charts back in 1994. It's hard to believe but Pantera were the first real heavy band to ever do that .
The hyperspeed opener Strength Beyond Strength is an awesome song packed with lightning fast drums, insane guitar riffs, and Phil Anselmo screaming in absolute rage. Dimebag Darrell also rips out one of his best solos ever in that song. Becoming contains some good double bass work from Vinnie Paul, and some good riffs too. 5 Minutes Alone and I'm Broken continue the non stop heaviness. Good Freinds And A Bottle Of Pills has bassist Rex Brown just ripping up his bass. Hard Lines And Sunken Cheeks is another good song with neat tempo changes and another good solo from Darrell. Slaughtered has the death metal feel, in which Phil growls in. 25 Years, Shedding Skin keep the album in a tight pace, while Use My Third Arm is an all out assault of raging blastbeasts, freinzied riffs and more of Phil's raging vocals. Throes Of Rejection has a good bass intro from Rex, and a good solo from Darrell. After 11 tracks of pure hate, rage, and adrenaline, the boys tuck everybody in with a cover of Black Sabbath's Planet Caravan. As far as this entire album goes, you want heavy, THIS IS HEAVY!

5.0 out of 5 stars "vulgar is better"?!yeah,right! May 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
anyone who says pantera's second album,"vulgar display of power"is better than "far beyond driven" must be a kid rock fan.period.this album was their absolute apex(before phil got into heroine really bad,and dime and vinne decided to try to go mainsteam),and shows why they were far better than both slayer AND metallica as far as meaningful,true lyrics and BOTH fast and slow music tempo.the heavy,grinding parts are unmatched in the songs "I'm broken","5 min alone",and"shedding skin".the faster songs are never over-repitituos and have awesome solos-"strength beyond strength",and"throes of rejection".and "slaughtered" is the song I play whenever I throw a kegger!"planet caravan",the last song that bleeds in after "throes" and is an old sabbath cover off of their "paranoid"album.it's a total 180 from the rest of the cd and is a perfect closing song for the album-chilled as hell.also,it's funny cause in the album credits phil states"we thought it was a tripped-out song.if you don't like it,don't f---in' listen to it.".anyway,just be glad Pantera put out probably the best EXTREME heavy metal album of all time before losing gas and getting bloated.

5.0 out of 5 stars That which crushes... April 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Far Beyond Driven is nearly Pantera's sickest, most disgustingly brutal album. The band's only CD which outdoes it is The Great Southern Trendkill. Far Beyond Driven comes in at a very close second. Thus, this disc is a great place to experience Pantera's crushing wrath.
The guitarwork on tis CD is, obviously, destructively powerful. Dimebag's trademark riffing is present as usual, although his style has developed and matured since Vulgar Display Of Power. The entire band is also much more aggressive sounding, and yet they still keep a hold of their straight-ahead heavy metal feel. Dimebag's solos are viciously powerful, but his true strong point is rhythm guitar work and his creative riff writing. Rex (on bass) also gets a chance to shine on this album more than he did previously. Along with fast thrashing sections, there are also quite a few crunching breakdowns, making the album well rounded and more diverse than Vulgar Display Of Power. As a whole, the disc shows much development - in a more aggressive and a darker direction. Though there are a few weak spots on songs like "Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks" and "25 Years", these are fairly minor, and the brilliance of the other songs outshines these flaws massively. The disc has a strong sense of personality and emotion instilled in it as well, and you get the feeling that Phil and the band poured all of their effort into creating this work.
As a sort of bonus, the last track on the CD is a cover of Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan". It is a very well done cover, and does a nice job of finishing off the album with a different, softer, more introspective mood.
The production on Far Beyond Driven could be better, but it's nothing to complain about.

Great Riffs and Animal Drumming. This is worth the money for the riffs alone.
