Yea, what you'll get as a set is a competely different story.

Safe to say you'll get at least half classics in any Slayer set.

When I think of Slayer I think "Damn, they could have been one of the best ever if they made 5 more albums like Show No Mercy and languished in relative obscurity as a thrash metal/NWBOHM-worship act for the duration of their career" Seriously, the fast thrash stuff was good, but Show No Mercy is one of the defining metal albums I think, in terms of sheer kickassness. Besides, Dark Angel did 'Reign In Blood' better anyways.

Come on ADD, even the progger in you knows that the correct answer is 5 more albums like Hell Awaits. Sure Show No Mercy was fun, but evolution is even more fun.

I say wait til they got the Rubin contract for Hell Awaits, tack on Angel, Post and Raining, then you would have had the real Reign In Blood.

I also agree with the Dark Angel comment. Burning Of Sodom was basically what "Necrophobic", except extended into a full 3 minute piece.

I must be one of the only Slayer fans that isn't that big on Show No Mercy.

give me Reign in Blood, Hell Awaits and South of Heaven (throw in Temptation and War Ensemble too) over anything else Slayer has recorded.

Well I always thought the "Show No Mercy" lovers were the minority, though I do remember a friend of mine telling me just as I was getting into them that "Most of the diehards think that everything from Show No Mercy through Reign in Blood is the good stuff."

SNM was a little too raw for my tastes. It even took a while for me to get into Hell Awaits (which is one of my faves now). But I started with Reign In Blood back in 86' so the production on the other Slayer stuff was a step backwards.

I got in my one obligatory Slayer concert (and it was great fun, but I don't think I need to go to another), so I wouldn't be upset if they called it quits now.

Yeah, it's about time for them to hang it up, but I hope I get to see them before they do.

I have to say I wouldn't care too much if they called it quits. Seen 'em a couple times, so like Overkiller said it'd be no biggie if they called it a day.
