Wow…. this is what remastering is good for. The sound, the energy and intensity is incredible. This sounds like it was just recorded yesterday! Now, if you haven’t heard at least one song off this album, chances are you are a complete recluse. This is one of the ultimate hard rock/heavy metal masterpieces of all time. Every song rocks hard and every song is a winner. No fillers here. So quit wasting your money on all this nu-metal and modern pop garbage and get some of the REAL stuff.
