Can you elaborate on that a little bit? What exactly makes it mediocre? Mediocre in comparison to other bands...or just other Slayer albums. or both?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

Anthrax begins to slow and steadily catch up to the mighty Slayer. C'mon people, 5 more votes for Anthrax, or 3 for Slayer and we move on.

AT some point we'll have to take all the winners of this game and put them against each other, even if the styles clash.

Sure. It's certainly not a bad album, but It's way too short. Maybe this is just me, but the songs all sound pretty much the same. I'm probably a minority on this one too, but the guitar solos blow. Another Slayer album like Seasons in the Abyss has 10X better guitar solos and songwriting.

Actually, I agree with you one several points. The album is WAY short. It's basically a glorified EP. I've always been of the opinion that this album is way overrated. I like it, and I know it's historical significance, but it's never been one of my favorites. I much prefer Hell Awaits or Show No Mercy.

I also think reign is mediocre. I like the groovier Slayer like on South of Heaven or Seasons. When Slayer plays at that super fast thrash speed everything starts sounding the same...

My review:
http://www.nolifetilmetal.com/slayer.html

According to interviews at the time R.I.B. came out, the songs were actually much slower when initially written...but when they started laying down the basic tracks Lombardo played all the songs WAY faster, Rick Rubin dug it and the rest is history.

I also agree that there are better Slayer albums...but Reign In Blood really was an amazing "experience" when it first came out, it helped to legitimize "extreme thrash" as a genre that could perform on a major label...and it pretty much blew everyone's mind at the time. Plus, some of those riffs are Slayer's best, especially the intro to Jesus Saves, Angel Of Death, Postmortem (brilliant) and the title track.

However, this is my own "personal" opinion of how the early Slayer albums rank...

1. Hell Awaits
2. South Of Heaven
3. Reign In Blood
4. Seasons In The Abyss
5. Show No Mercy
