This is my favorite Anthrax album, EVER!! The song writing is catchy, with great inner-song changeups and progressions! I am baffled by the negative reviews of this album. I will never forget buying this tape on a choir trip in 6th grade (1988) and listening to it with my walkman on the buss. I bought it because I liked the album cover (lol) and had heard from older friends that Anthrax was heavy, thrash metal style (I was like 10 or 11 years old). The experience changed my life! I remember riding through the Tennessee mountains listening to State of Euphoria, absolutely mesmerized. Get it!!!
