Pretty awesome album

Too be honest, I wish they'd play more tracks from this album live.

Rating: 9 I like this album a lot, although it's definitely a step down from the thrash masterclasses which were it's two predecessors. Songs like the title track and "Corruption" though, are Exodus at their very best!

Rating: 7 This was one of my favorite in the 90's, I find that it is not that great anymore due to the tempo is a bit slow compare with a lot of new bands' works.
Ironically Impact is imminent sounds better nowadays compare with the time I listened in the 90's.

Good album but a terrible terrible lowrider cover...

I'd forgotten how terrible that cover was.

Always thought this was a bit of a joke album but it's fun enough and some of the riffage is really nice. And the songs are at least memorable unlike some of their modern ones.

And for some unknown reason intro riff to Like Father, Like Son has a real Obituary vibe.

Rating: 8 For me a little better and more diverse than the band's last album, even if the "Low Rider" cover seems so out of place. The only problem I see here is how the album's two longest songs are right next to each other, and the second is definitely more effective than the first. Nonetheless, there's plenty of classic cuts to take from here (namely "Toxic Waltz" and "The last Act of Defiance"), but it's generally a very solid, very precise thrash album.
