3. South of Heaven was their peak.
4. They are not better than the rest of the Big 4. They're better than Anthrax because as far as I know Anthrax aren't doing anything, but Death Magnetic and Endgame are both pretty awesome albums, and World Painted Blood...isn't. At all.
2. I'd say South of Heaven is right behind Rust in Peace for best by the Big 4, haven't really thought about thrash overall.
4. World Painted Blood is better than Death Magnetic, but not Endgame.
