  • I’m a huge Anthrax fan. Always have been. But I was kind of conflicted with this one. I knew that this CD was a big faceless corporate record label trying to cash in on a great band. But what did I do? I cracked and bought it.Here’s my approach: I accept the record for what it is. It’s a compilation with a bunch of great songs on it. It may be missing “Ball of Confusion,” as so many here have noted, but I’m thinking of what it does include.It’s got “I Am the Law,” “Indians,” and “Caught in a Mosh,” from arguably one of the best metal recordings ever, “Among the Living.” It also has the uncensored version of “I’m the Man,” which I so enjoy. And probably my two favorite songs the band has done, “Antisocial” and “Belly of the Beast.” And it’s got that great cut with Public Enemy, “Bring the Noise.”I give it four stars because it’s not officially licensed and it’s not 100% comprehensive, so in theory it should be a three star recording, but the quality of the songs chosen warrant an extra star.
