many people did not like this album. i dont see why as it is like among the living tracks that didnt make the album with a few amazing tracks. of course among the living was amazing so these are still very good. the drumming wasnt recorded very well....it sounds awesome at times but sounds kind of pots and panny at a few times. bass is awesome as always. singing is clean and if you ask me BETTER than among the living. riffs are awesome....thats it. anthrax has not been known for their leadwork but this proves that they should be. fun album!

best tracks are be all end all (with an amazing 2 minute solo from dan spitz)for its darker epic feel, something anthrax does not usually do. make me laugh has some of the best lyrics ever. antisocial is fun. who cares wins is similiar to be all end all. now its dark is very fun and catchy. 13 is a joke.....sounding like mario music on steroids. finale still remains one of my favourite tracks.

state of euphoria is one of the most fun anthrax albums. it also features an amazing cartoon of notman and anthrax. i would give it a 8 out of 10!

Anthrax has always been a sentimental favorite of mine. They were the band that was instrumental in seeing me off on my first steps as metalhead. My musical tastes have broadened considerably in the sixteen years (has it been that long?) since I discovered Anthrax, but every now and then I have to return to where I began my journey. 1988's State of Euphoria brings back fond memories of my headbanging salad days. Even though SoE was not the group's best album, it is still mindblowing when put up against the excrementitious butt-rock like Poison and WASP that ruled the charts back in the day. How could it have been their best when they released the groundbreaking Among the Living the year before? Asking them to top AtL would be like asking your geography teacher to find a larger ocean than the Pacific.
A quick song review:
1. Be All, End All - A song that came out at a time when heavy metal was given was given a lot of bad press for driving teenagers to suicide and devil-worshipping. The lyrics are a condemnation of suicide, much like Ozzy Ozbourne's "Suicide Solution". But you were never going to hear something like that from Geraldo Rivera. It starts off with a somber and beautiful cello intro from Carol Freidman before switching into crushing, but upbeat metal.
2. Out of Sight, Out of Mind - An attack on phony bands and political correctness before most of us knew what political correctness was.
3. Make Me Laugh - A seriocomic blasting of televangelists like Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart. Lyrically, it's hilarious. But it's also scary because there are still a lot of gullible people in 2004 who are throwing their life savings away to these charlatans.
4. Antisocial - A catchy remake of the song from the little known, and then disbanded, French band Trust.

In Joey Belladonna, Anthrax had one of the most distinctive singers in Thrash. The biggest problem with a voice as powerful and clean as Belladonna's was how the hell do you incorporate it into something as rough and ready as thrash? Well, it took the band three albums, but they finally hit the nail on the head with 'State Of Euphoria'.
Often criticised as Anthrax's weakest album, it is easy to see why many fans don't rate it. Production wise, it lacks the bite and punch of 'Spreading The Disease' and 'Among The Living', and is nowhere near as heavy as 'Persistence Of Time'. Scott Ian's signature rhythm guitar crunch has been strangled, and the drums are right up in the mix. It sounds like a bit of a mess, but it actually works, in an odd way.
Instead of the rhythm guitar leading the songs, as is more usual in Thrash, it's the vocals that point the songs in whatever direction they may be heading. Joey Belladonna's melodies shine through, and they are a pleasure to hear. Belladonna has an excellent vocal range and a clear voice, and easily pulls off a number of difficult passages and songs. Few other Thrash singers ever matched him, except perhaps Mark Oseguda from Death Angel.
The odd mix of the album make it far easier to appreciate Charlie Benante's drumming than on other Anthrax albums. While many Thrash fans worship Dave Lombardo and Gene Hoglan, Benante often ends up forgotten, rather unfairly.
Anthrax were called a band with a social conscience after previous songs like "Indians", and that aspect of the band was further developed here. "Who Cares Wins" in particular examines the plight of the homeless, and how easy it is for those living comfortably to ignore. Elsewhere, they take a poke at money grabbing evangelists, on "Make Me Laugh".

No two Anthrax CDs sound alike... State of Euphoia eschews much of the insane thrash heard on Among the Living for commercially oriented song structures. There are still plenty headbanging moments and every chorus is catchy... the songs stick with you. Any fan of the Belladonna era should have this CD already.
Who Cares Wins and Be All End All (both singles) are the heavier tracks... the former futuring an quality verse/chorus riff and excellent vocalwork by Mr. Belladonna. The other classic on here is Antisocial, their Trust cover (Nick McBrain's old band) and breakout hit. My only problem is that songs like Make Me Laugh and Now It's Dark, however fun they may be, are a little lightweight. The riffs and lyrics are cheesy as hell.. "now it's dark! i can't see! don't you fXXXing look at me! you don't care about anything!". Scott Ian is not exactly Shakespeare but these are really lame.
State of Euphoria is a cool album no doubt, but Persistence of time and Among the Living are better. Get those and White NOise first.
