Album review

Here we have a 2 cd collection of Anthrax tunes...basically all the tunes you know and love with Belladonna singing from 1985 to 1991, along with a few versions you haven't heard before, (like the French version of "Antisocial", and a cover of "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath"). Overall, it's a pretty good mix of tunes spanning this particular time in Anthrax's career. On the first disk you get thrash classics like "Among The Living", "I Am The Law", "Armed and Dangerous", "Caught In A Mosh" etc. and of course, "I'm The Man". Disk 2 kicks off with "Be All, End All", and stomps along with other Anthrax favorites like "Antisocial", "Finale", "Keep It In The Family", "Got The Time"...and of course "Bring Tha Noize". For some reason "Fistful Of Metal" (1984) isn't represented here...Any serious metalhead that was around in the 80's already has all of the classic thrash albums that these tunes are on. But I guess if you're like 15 right now and missed all that, or you've been living in a cave and still don't know how killer old Anthrax stuff is, or how they were one of the best thrash bands ever...then you should go pick this up immediately. Or just buy "Armed And Dangerous", "Spreading The Disease", "Among The Living", "State Of Euphoria", and "Persistence Of Time".
