Megadeth - Looking Down the Cross

I like this one better than anything on Kill 'Em All, even if I find the album a bit inconsistent overall. Metallica's first outing is more consistent, but I don't find the high points all that high. The Four Horsemen is 10x better than Mustaine's take, at least. Really missing that slow section with the solo in Mechanix.

Slayer = eh, they're ok.

Anthrax = eh, whatever.

Megadeth > Metallica > Slayer > Anthrax

Now, if Joey had sang on Fistful of Metal it would be a different story. Megadeth would still be best though.

Phew, none of those are very good. I'm happy thrash improved so rapidly over the next few years.

If Joey had sung on Fistful it wouldn't have been the same early speed metal romp. He just wasn't suited to that album. I find it hard to even call it an Anthrax album cause it has nothing to do with everything they did after.

I don't know, the re-recorded version of Metal Thrashing Mad from Armed and Dangerous kicks ass:


Though I do like Fistful of Metal as it is, it's just the weakest of the big four debuts imo.
