The 2016 full album World Gone Mad by U.S. crossover band Suicidal Tendencies is available in its entirety at YouTube. Over at Metal Archives a reviewer has observed, in part: "Without a doubt, the biggest surprise on "World Gone Mad" - besides the fact that in my opinion this output is among the three best ever recorded by the band - is the drummer. Yes, Mike Muir (50+) has managed to lure Dave Lombardo (50+) into the abandoned seat (Lombardo, who the hell is he? If you ask that question, go back to square one and make your homework, please). And the old gentlemen unleash havoc on us. Other than the European troika which does not achieve anything, main songwriter Mike starts the opus with a non expected threesome that leaves you with your mouth open. Especially the opener "Clap Like Ozzy" combines all known trademarks of the band. A pumping, sometimes funky bass, a merciless pounding whirlwind of drumming and quite a number of guitar solos which are supporting the charismatic vocalist on his mission to condemn the appalling situations around us."
