I haven't listened to the whole thing yet but here's what I think so far;

Human Strain - I really liked this track alot. I personally liked the riffage in the song, and the midsection was badass as well, though it was reminiscent of the Jihad intro, to me at least.

Beauty Through Order - Strarts off kinda weak a little boring. It picks up from around the middle and on though.

Public Display of Dimemberment - Can you say blast beats? Really sick, fast, brutal track.

Americon - Good song. I dig the eastern influences in some of the guitar playing, which is not something I would expect from Slayer.

So far I'm really digging this album. It's impressing me more than Endgame did on my first listen, though I must say I have come to enjoy the album very much.

And on the subject of Death Magnetic, I think it's a great album. I would put it close to Endgame and WPB, mainly because I felt the album had really strong songs. The only thing that really sets it back is probably the same thing everyone else would say; the shitty tones/production. Seriously, if that album had the same production values of Endgame, it would truly deserve all of the critical praise it has gotten.

The more I listen to it, the more I like it. The more speed, the merrier! Their best cd in years!

Everyone's loving this, but after 2 or 3 listens I was dissapointed, sounds like I'll have to spin it again.

The production on this album is awful. The guitars are paper-thin and the vocals are way too loud. That said, I listened to about half of it and got bored.
