The song structures are not exciting at all, the entire thing feels slowed down. The vocals are complete shit. Honestly, I don't know what happened to Tom Araya. He could just as well be singing in an alternative rock band. Melodic, clean Slayer vox suck and he just gave up on the awesome evil vocals that dominated Hell Awaits and Reign in Blood. The production of the album feels like they were trying to sell it to a more mainstream crowd but falls short of totally going in that direction, leaving it with a weird lack of the intense 'metal' sound they used to have.
Mandatory Suicide is an awful, annoying song. Especially the "Suicide...Suicide" part. I can't express how much I hate that.
yeah I definitely get what you're saying. I think the slower, more mid-tempo songs work in their favor, though (not saying I don't prefer fast Slayer ) Just saying that I don't think they should only stick with speed.
"Mandatory Suicide" shouldn't be a staple. The riff is godly but the song itself is not.
I don't really care about the lack of yelling, I think the singing fits well here.

Interesting thread. Personally I think Reign in Blood is the best album ever made but after hearing this concert I would have to put Hell Awaits way up there also. Definitely Top 5.

I highly recommend checking this out before judging early Slayer. The Show No Mercy tracks live are even faster.

If you find it please link me. I couldn't find anything...

I can't believe I'd never heard of this. Wow. What a set. But what is up with no "Metal Storm/Face The Slayer?" Easily could've been traded for Final Command (and, dare I say, Antichrist)..

I'm not that big of a Slayer fan but I give the man his props for at least going out there and doing the best he can given the circumstances.
Thanks Sanitarium

Oh right on, Megadeth is playing Rust in Peace through, Slayer is playing Seasons in the Abyss through, and isn't Testament playing one of their albums also?

Testament originally said they were playing "The Legacy" straight through, and they did do that in the spring when they toured with Megadeth and Exodus. But they decided to change it up for the Slayer/Megadeth tour.
