Well, part of the problem is when I finally got around to hearing it I had already soaked in Angel Of Death and Raining Blood. I figured shit, if it was top 3 heavy metal material/ the rest of the album should knock those two flat on their backs, right? (it worked for Van Halen's first album and I heard about half of it) Wrong. I was quite underwhelmed by the rest of it. I mean it has its moments, but I'd much rather listen to The Antichrist instead of say, Piece By Piece.

Show No Mercy is at least 3x better than any other Slayer album.

Bullshit. Everyone knows the "Universal Praise" of Reign in Blood is typical fanboy drivel.

Agreed. No album containing "Quest For Fire", "Sun And Steel" and "To Tame a Land" can ever possibly be considered a great record. It's an average record with some great songs. That doesn't make it a great record.
