Really cool reviews man. I agree with most of them to a T. I like how you didn't "drink the Kool-aid" on certain bands and tell it like it really is. I definitely rate thrash higher than you but other than that I think this is a great guide to expose people to music they should hear if they haven't.
Props for including Polkadot Cadaver also. I think my expectations were too high but I need to give it another listen anyway.
