It was released on April 26, on Profile Records and was subsequently re-released on Another Planet — along with their debut album, The Age Of Quarrelon the same disc. The album's cover reflected the band's interest in the Hare Krishna religion which started with previous singer John Joseph and then carried on through Harley Flanagan who also became a devotee. Their next album, Alpha Omegasaw the return of John Joseph to the Cro-Mags fold, and an even further gravitation towards a metal sound.
After the short, sharp bursts of song encountered on their previous album, 's The Age Of Quarrelthis album saw a complete change of style as Cro-Mags entered the crossover thrash and thrash metal arena, complete with guitar solos. There were two line-up changes from the previous album Death Camps - Cro-Mags - Best Wishes most notably, John Joseph's departure paved the way for Harley Flanagan to take up both bass and vocal duties. Flanagan's was a very different vocal style and it further juxtaposed the band's image from straightout hardcore punk to a more metal sound.
Another change was Pete Hines coming in on drums. The New Yorkers may see the violent, chaotic world around them as a living hell, but their overall message is one of hope and optimism.
The Cro-Mags do see better days ahead -- even if one has to go through various reincarnations in order to find them. Of course, a headbanger doesn't have to embrace Hinduism in order to appreciate Best Wishes -- whatever one's spiritual beliefs, this is a band that rocks without hesitation.
