My favorite album of Testament's major-label period. It has a slightly less heavy sound than its predecessors but it still rips!

Probably my favorite Testament album, with New World Order coming in a close second. Every song on here is great! The sound is a bit more technical than the past two albums. My personal favorites are "Practice What You Preach," "Perilous Nation," and "Sins of Omission." German thrashers Blackend and American metal band Ultimatum have covered songs from this CD.

Yes my fav Testament album too, very Good Thrash metal, Testament esta en las mismas ligas que Exodus o Anthrax ya que el trio maestro del Thrash siempre sera Sepultura-Metallica-Slayer eso creo que no hay ninguna duda, los puntos mas altos aca son IMO Practice What You Preach y Greenhouse Effect 8.5/10

Of all the "oother" thrash bands in the late '80's, Testament came closest to making it the "Big Five." I pick this third album as the best from their early career, partly on the strength of such Headbanger's Balll staples as the title track, "Greenhouse Effect" and "The Ballad," and really most of the rest as well, but also because First Strike Still Deadly puts the first two albums to shame in terms of heaviness and tightness. At thiss point, Testament were Metallica Lite, even down to Chuck's Hetfield-like vocals.
