Granted it was during the shitty Bush era, but still.
Because I was only 17 and listened to strictly traditional metal at that point: Black Sabbath, Dio, Iron Maiden, Queensryche, Judas Priest, etc. Later that year I bought my first Megadeth album, and not long after even Anthrax, who I enjoy just fine now.
When I was younger, I gave a lot of things bad reviews simply because I hadn't been exposed to stuff yet. But to be honest, if you don't like thrash metal, 60 minutes of loud in your face thrash is kind of a drag. That's where I was at 17. By 18, I wouldn't have complained about Anthrax

But also, I did finally add the audio back. There's been a broken link on that post here for like 8 years
