I wrote an earlier review where I gave this CD two stars. I owe an appology to the band and the shoppers for that. What this CD really suffers from is production. I didn’t start to appreciate it until I got a new and better stereo. It’s too damn quiet for me, as are all of Testament’s earlier albums. They don’t do the band justice. But the guitar playing kicks ass. Alex Skolnick was the best lead in thrash metal, and this is the last album I know where he’d show it. The bass and drums are origional Testament’s usual quality, and Chuck Billy does a great job on vox as always. Buy this album, especially at $12, its worth it almost just for Skolnick’s jaw dropping solo on “Face in the Sky”. Just try and find a good stereo to play it on.
