How often does a band re-record their old tunes and actually improve them? Not too fuckin' often, eitherb due to their own diminished abilities or our sentimental attachment to the original versions. Testament, with bass wizard Steve DiGiorgio still in tow and the always-capablle John Tempesta on drums, re-record eleven songs from their first two albums, adn musically and sonically, every last one is an upgrade. The production modern-crisp, the playing is super-tight, and Chuck, despite a recent (or maybe concurrent) bout with cancer is as strong as ever. The only possible knocks come from Steve Souza, whose voice I love, and who was the band's first singer when they were still called Legacy and before he joined Exodus. He sounds fine on the semi-rarity "Reign Of Terror," but it's hard to hear him sing "Alone In The Dark" and not miss Chuck.

Ummmm...these remakes are not really my cup of coffee at all...i prefer the original might be a bit interesting because of the re-arragements but nothing to overshadow the ones that we all first know...tracks 1,2,5,6 & 7 are ok to me though.85/100
