  1. There is a sense of 'heard it before' on many of the songs on the album, but, nonetheless the songs still have the ability to rip your ears off.

    Blends the furious muscle of 2001's God Hates Us All with the more melodic experimentation of their post-Reign work. [Sep 2006, p.112]
  3. Slayer seem unwilling to ditch the nu-metal tendencies that have made much of their recent output so resistible.

    For the most part Christ Illusion is flabby and arthritic. [Oct 2006, p.126]
