4.0 out of 5 stars UNDERATED July 7 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Album for Anthrax July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Following up the thrash masterpiece "Among the Living" would have proven to be difficult by most bands. Anthrax in this case showed that they could produce an album equal to their greatest effort. In some cases I prefer "State of Euphoria" over "Among the Living". The flow of the album appeals to me more I guess. This album contains some of my favorite Anthrax songs ever. "Now it's Dark", "Be All, End All", and "Who Cares Wins" stand out as pure thrashing mayhem. Sadly this would prove to be the last of Anthrax's pure thrash metal albums. The following "Persistence of Time" was brooding and much darker, and also gave hints to the change in musical direction for the band. If you want to expereince fun thrashing metal you can not go wrong with this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY UNDERATED!!!! May 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
what a great anthrax album this turned out to be after their classic follow up to among the living.now this album is pretty damn weak....well just the production....but everything else kicks ass.as i said before joeys vocals are awsome as usual,guitars shred hear and their all over the place!!!.and lots of other things like more tributes such as stephen king.this album is kinda dumb to me cause it sounded like anthrax was getting into comic books,books,cartoons(maybe),etc..but everything else kicks and the best songs are:be all,end all,out of sight,out of mind,make me laugh,anti socail,now its dark....the only bad song was 13...ugh thank GOD it was short.anyways if your a big fan of anthrax and thrash metal...this is a must have in your collection!!.

4.0 out of 5 stars Euphoric July 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
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".

Anthrax makes a good album, not as good as "Among the Living" but still very good! You can find "Be All End All", a classic. It is a very fast track! Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars not anthrax's best
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. Read more
