Marooned was Sodom's second official live album, and, though originally issued internationally in 1994, it only saw a limited release in America six years later. And maybe just as well, since the disc doesn't exactly find the German thrashers at the top of their game. The recording quality is decent enough, but the track listing doesn't always represent Sodom's better moments ("Agent Orange," "Remember the Fallen," and "Tired and Red" among them), making way instead for a slew of faceless moshers from their declining years, such as "Jesus Screamer," "One Step Over the Line," and "Silence Is Consent." And a warning to those buying this release simply to hear never-before heard originals like "Stalinhagel," "Fratricide," and "Gone to Glory" -- they're not all that great. For rabid fans only...
