As the classic metal logos representing song titles on the back cover should reveal, Flotsam & Jetsam have made no bows to the grunge revolution. High marks a return to the old days of thrash, bereft of any mainstream or prog-rock influences. Each song presented here is built on a simple riff structure; as a testament to the band's songwriting, no tune is without its own distinction, which makes the consistent uptempo feel of the album work to maximum effect.
