Depends on what elitist you ask. General rule of thumb is the third album was too mainstream/wasn't noisy enough (read: production actually sounded good)/too technical/not technical enough. I couldn't disagree more, generally, but hey, I was born after the golden era of thrash/death metal, what could I possibly know.
