This is the only album I have of Anthrax and it's one of my favorite cd's. Favorite songs are A.I.R., Medusa, and Enemy. If you ever find this album. Buy it.

From: Zze Date: October 16, 2003 at 21:00
This is one of my all time metal favourites. The best Anthrax ever made as well. It sounds much more "Power Metal" than Thrash nowadays, but its stgill awesome, a historical record

Amazing effort!!!!!!!!!

From: Jordi Date: April 13, 2004 at 12:22
Medusa es, simplemente impresionante... PAJA A DOS MANOS SENTADO EN EL WATER! jajaja!

From: ED Date: June 13, 2004 at 18:21
By this time, Turbin was out and Belladonna comes in. This album is maybe a metal classic. Some good hits are found here.

From: Richierocker Date: June 24, 2004 at 18:12
This album is filled with bombastic glee. ED my thoughts align with yours in regards to this metal masterpiece. It brings much bliss to my auditory senses called ears, and can affix a smile to my face when hearing the intense sound Danny Spitz and Scoot Ian provide as they serve up some tasty fret work on this record.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 16:38
The first classic album by Anthrax. Some of their best songs on here like "Madhouse", "Loan Justice", and "Medusa". 10/10

From: meedoosa Date: August 26, 2004 at 23:08
greatest fuckin thrash album of all time.it kicks metallica's fairy asses."medusa"is the best song anthrax ever put to tape.

From: Scott Date: November 3, 2004 at 14:02
Simply one of the finest thrash albums ever recorded. I saw the band twice on this tour, once with the legendary Heathen's Rage opening. There is not a bad song to be found here.

From: eddie Date: April 4, 2005 at 14:47
Killer album! I think this one is their best! Does anyone know that the classic line-up (Joey Belladonna, Scott Ian, Dan Spitz, Charlie Benante, and Frank Bello) are back together this year? Check www.anthraxtheband.com for details!
