Frownland, I can certainly believe that. My main two complaints with the studio version of this album is that they don't develop the song structures completely and the Tom's vocals can't keep up with the music. Every YouTube live clip that I've seen from any of the tracks on "RIB" have longer run times; therefore, the songs are better developed, and the tracks are played slightly slower so Tom can keep up on vocals, but that doesn't fix the problems on the studio version.

they are certainly better written, and the flow is better

on most of the songs on RIB, i can hardly tell which one's which, besides the aforementioned Jesus Saves and Angel of Death and the final slow one (Raining Blood?)

Dude, Surf Nicaragua only has four songs on it and the longest one of them is a cover. That means that means about a third of the album's running time was written by Black Sabbath.

First off, there is no such thing as the "Best" or "greatest." There are only personal opinions and favorites that when combined together-- create these best of "all time" lists... which depending on the publication normally don't mean much.

Second, I never say anywhere that "RIB" is a bad album, I just say that it doesn't resonate with me personally.

Lastly, if you're referring to me as the "supposed thrash fan," I never stated anywhere that I was a fan of thrash. I would consider myself a moderate Thrash fan, in that i like Metallica, Megadeth, & some Slayer, but I have no experience with Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, or any of the other big names of Thrash, so I would hardly say I have the background to call myself a true fan of Thrash.

My review of the album is from an objective music fan perspective, not a thrash fan perspective, as all my reviews are

What's your point? Mine was that it's pretty hard to talk about album flow when you're referring a four song EP and pretty hard to talk about songwriting when a big percentage of the music consists of non-original material.

"Surf Nicaragua" is a good song but is not even in the same league as the tracks on Reign in Blood. That said, I think looking at Reign in Blood as simply a collection of songs is a mistake. It's a quintessential album album—a single, unified listening experience—and is best appreciated when consumed whole.

If remember correctly, I really liked Reign In Blood. It has been a while since I listened to it (and only once) but I think a 5/10 is pretty harsh.
