!YMMV Tropes for the Sepultura album
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks / ItsPopularNowItSucks: The reactions this album retrospectively gets from a sizable portion of the metal community. Particularly with its influence on the ever-so-dreaded NuMetal genre. This is despite the fact that, other than perhaps [[Music/FearFactory Demanufacture]], it was probably the only straight-up metal album from the second half of the 90's to gain any sort of mainstream recognition.

* ValuesDissonance: The horrors of slavery go without saying. But that aside, Chicken George gets his name and makes his way as a gamecock trainer- as in cockfighting. He winds up being so highly valued by his master, Tom Moore, that he is cheated out of his occasional chances at freedom because of it. Cockfighting is viewed as a sleazy, cruel pastime in this era and only takes place at underground illegal dives. The same thing that ruined Michael Vick's reputation is what Chicken George used to build his.

* FairForItsDay: Sam Harvey is generally a decent man. He clearly views his slaves as property and would prefer to keep them that way. However, he treats them as people and is not mean to them. He basically treats them as employees, rather than pack animals as some of the other masters do. When the slaves are freed after the war, he wants the former slaves to stay on and work for him, except he can't afford to pay them. He offers a sharecropping system to them, which they accept. (He is a rather poor businessman, as he neglects to have anything drawn up legally. This is horrible for the sharecroppers, as he loses his farm and the former slaves are stuck owing a ton that they can't afford to pay. This is taken advantage of by some racists with a grudge against Tom, and by extension, the rest of the black sharecroppers.) As he is leaving the farm, he is referred to as "better than most of them".
