The guy knew his thrash, of that there is no dispute. He also held grudges against Metallica and Testament, and was very vocal about it. There's also no disputing that. Bottom line is, his review of Master of Puppets is one of the most famous internet reviews around. You've read it.

99. Terrorizer- World Downfall

1. "After World Obliteration"
2. "Storm of Stress"
3. "Fear of Napalm"
4. "Human Prey"
5. "Corporation Pull-In"
6. "Strategic Warheads"
7. "Condemned System"
8. "Resurrection"
9. "Enslaved by Propaganda"
10. "Need to Live"
11. "Ripped to Shreds"
12. "Injustice"
13. "Whirlwind Struggle"
14. "Infestation"
15. "Dead Shall Rise"
16. "World Downfall"


In my quest to love all things acclaimed in the intangible metal hall of fame, I have had great successes and dissapointments. But Iíd say my greatest dissapointement is the concession that I will just never love grindcore. Itís not for me. Grindcore is basically the same as disco. It has itís purpose but a very very short shelf life. Thereís only so far you can grow with a song limit of 1 second to 2 minutes, and youíll probably run out of truly great riffs very quickly. That being said, Iíd like to think that any erupting scene will yield at least one classic, and this is said classic. Featuring the rhythm section of none other than Morbid Angel(!), who that very year had just released Altars of Madness (!!), Jesse Pintado and Oscar release an angry and violent piece of art that should be studied by anyone calling themselves a musicologist.

Recommended track: Corporation Pull In

Two things I disagree with- the middle section of Master of Puppets being dumb as well as The Thing That Should Not Be being the song that spawned groove metal- The song has practically no groove whatsoever!

The point of me bringing it up anyway was to answer the question of why it's all the way down at 100.
But I'd rather read your opinions, than the same shit I've already read from him.

Puppets is amazing, easily one of the best albums ever.

When Kirk says Load would've come sooner if Cliff were still around, I completely believe it.

I also believe it would've been a lot better because he knew what he was doing more than anyone else in the bandwhen it came to the less thrashy material.

This. Load would've been a much more focused record if Cliff was writing the material.

99 albums better than Master of Puppets. If there is anything more retarded than than that in the history of the internet I'd love to see it.

I'm expecting to be turned on to some cool music so I'll tune in. Seriously though. 99 albums better than Master of Puppets? hahahahaha

Elitist Hipster Alert.... BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

If anything I picture two elitist hipsters saying that Master of Puppets is the greatest metal album ever because of it's slower and softer tendencies.

Hey maybe some people don't like Metallica as much as others. Hell, I had Skeletonwitch above them on my top thrash metal albums list!

Anyway that Terrorizer album is fucking awesome! This list should be cool, looking forward to what's to come.

98. Morbid Angel- Covenant

1. "Rapture"
2. "Pain Divine"
3. "World of Shit (The Promised Land)"
4. "Vengeance Is Mine"
5. "The Lions Den"
6. "Blood on My Hands"
7. "Angel of Disease"
8. "Sworn to the Black"
9. "Nar Mattaru"
10. "God of Emptiness

Morbid Angel’s third (and best selling album) plays like your standard pop record. Great beginning and end, boring middle. Albums like this rely more on the strength of the songs themselves rather than being a new burgeoning piece of art like Altars of Madness. It also feels that this album was a return to the Altars of Madness style, considering the lack of variety (and also considering this album and AOM gets 7 songs a pop during their live set where as Blessed can barely get 1). There’s quite a few great songs here, but special mention goes to World Of Shit, which is inexplicably the only Morbid Angel song to have excessive cursing. It’s almost like their manager said “Ok guys this is our major label debut, we need something to get the suburban white boys on board! Someone write some lyrics with a bunch of four letter words!” Maybe that’s why it’s still their grand finale, because it reminds all the old timers of their youth when saying Fucked Human Shit made you sound like you were ahead of the curve for some reason.

Reccommended Track:
World of Shit
