By Frank
Format:Audio CD
OK, firstly i don't know why this album gets such a bad wrap, particularly by outsiders & supposed music critics who have no idea what they are talking about. To illustrate my point, if you go to the allmusic site, you'll see that the reviewer says that it was a rushed album that was carelessly thrown together with painfully silly lyrics that sound like they were only an after thought. Well it sounds pretty damn awesome to me for rush job. Geez i wish every band could still pull off a rush job like this one nowadays, if it is in fact a rush job. And how could you not like lyrics like "we never knew we left the ground, like a warhead targetbound". If you're looking for depth then go read some philosophy books, this is a straight ahead thrash album, lyrical depth is not a requirement. What's more is they go on to say that it's just endless riff upon endless riff. Ahhh yeah, and..... isn't that the general idea. The riffs in this album are catchy stomp riffs & really keep you interested. I hate albums full of songs with boring riffs that don't grab or hold your interest or songs that only have a good riff halfway into the song that lasts about 10 seconds & then the song reverts back after the riff ends. The vocals sound just right & just like they have since Pleasures Of The Flesh. The guitar sound is perfect & how i like it to sound, not too low & bassy like that crap modern day metal guitar sound, but still heavy with plenty of crunch. The production is not perfect, but reasonably good. In fact i couldn't really say a bad thing about this album. I personally found this to be the easiest Exodus album to get into, along with Pleasures Of The Flesh & i immediatly found myself liking this album from the word go. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best thrash bands EVER!! October 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
While Exodus has a ton of great material, this one is my favorites. It has a great sound and the riffage on this is just outstanding. The H Team truly were the best players in the game during the 80's and 90's and this disc really shows. John Tempesta is on drums for this disc and he really bumps them up a level regarding tightness and rhythm as he is a master of the double kick. If you're going to buy any Exodus CS I would seriously recommend this one because it stands the test of time in it's originality, harshness and shredding, but is easily accessible to those who may not have truly felt the MOSH yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal July 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album has got to go down in history as real metal way ahead of its time.The riffs are catchy & ultimately heavy. Gary Holt is a musical genius and deserves greater recognition for all his accomplishments. This is a brilliant follow up to Fabulous and is definatley "huge" must if you like Exodus.

5.0 out of 5 stars THRASH UNDER PRESSURE!!!!!! March 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
total thrash,exodus is one of my fav bands and i am also a humungus fan of thrash,i first heard of these guys in a magizine and it had the history of thrash,by that time i heard of exodus.every track in here are brutal insane thrash (eg.impact is imminent,only death decides,heads they win (tails you lose). i dont get why people say that zetros vocals are annoying and chessy,i think they are awesome it fits really cool with the music.the H-team definitly got riffs of blindin speed almost as good as fabulous disaster (their 3rd album)i usually would recommend exoduses first album bonded by blood,but this is best album of 1990 i recommend it to anyone that really loves thrash metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars the walls of chaos March 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is just thrash metal at its finest! it has everything you could dream of if you are looking to bang your head! the guitar sound is perfect for those that love that shredding sound! very underated thrash metal album! it may not be viewed in the same light as kill em all or reign in blood, it is probably just below those as greatest thrash albums!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best thrash CDs around October 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I am not the why the previous reviewers are giving 4 stars. The album is unique, can not be compared to anything came out back in early-late 90's and even now. The quitar sound is very similar to Massacre's "from beyond", and I have not heard this sound anywhere else. The songs and riffs are more refined and sound is more organized compared to their earlier releases.
Get this one first and proceed with the other albums..

4.0 out of 5 stars Same old - same old July 6, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Simple enough: It's more of the same, hard hitting thrash and whirl wind quick guitars & drums. If you're a fan of Exodus, chances are you already have this cd and you know what you're getting into if you don't already have it.

If you're getting started w/ Exodus, any cd you pick up is just as good as the others (my opinion).

Their sound doesn't change too drastically from album to album (except for the lead singer shuffle.) All in all, a great album to have in your thrash metal collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exodus' most underrated album.
Impact is as good or better than Fabulous Disaster. A thrash masterpiece. Gary Holt is arguably the greatest rhythm guitar player on the planet and Zetro plain rules.
