    It's not as good as 1988's South of Heaven, but there's enough speaker-shredding guitar noise to make up for any vocal deficiencies. [Aug/Sep 2001, p.128]

After the nu metal tendencies of Diabolus in Musica, fans were left wondering if Slayer had begun to ababdon their roots, and this album quickly eradicated those fears. Songs such as "Disciple" and "Bloodline" are right up there with classics such as "Angel of Death" and "War Ensemble". "Payback" is one of the angriest, least commercial sounding songs to be released by a band with this much recognition. The lyrics are full of profanity on some tracks, unlike earlier albums, but this tends to work to the band's advantage, as Tom Araya sounds like he's far beyond his breaking point on these songs, like he's legitimately going to emerge from your speakers and tear out your eyes and rip off your flesh. God Hates Us All is terrifyingly brutal. Full Review »

    Well, this album doesn't deserve that score. Songs does not have that unique Slayer atmosphere in my opinion, it sounds so generic. Riffs areWell, this album doesn't deserve that score. Songs does not have that unique Slayer atmosphere in my opinion, it sounds so generic. Riffs are not enough fast, wicked and complex. They all sound same and all of them are repetitive. Tom is just yelling, it's not his style. I can't hear "real Tom" in this album. I just can't hear the brutality. Solos suck as usual. The only song that I love is Disciple. That's it. It would be good album for a generic band maybe but not for Slayer. Full Review »
