3.0 out of 5 stars So THIS is what we've been waiting all this time for...?! December 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying that I missed the Best Buy sale and actually dropped full price for this, so already I'm rubbed the wrong way...
This thing has been hyped for over two years now (maybe more)...we were told that it would be packaged in an artillery shell, that it would contain remakes of early classics, that it would have a DVD containg all their promo videos, as well as behind the scenes personal stuff filmed on Kerry's camcorder, blah, blah, blah. Having shelled out almost an entire C-note for this, I have to say that I am not only disappointed but honestly feel that I've been ripped off. 'Soundtrack to the Apocalypse' is nothing more than a cash grab, pure and simple.
Here are my grievances:
1. THE PACKAGING - I heard that the artillery shell was canned and replaced with an ammo box. Okay, fine. What we get is a cheap cardboard box that's supposed to look like an ammo box...and it doesn't.
2. THE TRINKETS - so what do you get for the extra price of this limited edition? A "backstage pass replica" that's nothing more than a plastic card with a Slayer logo on it dangling from a neck cord. Ooh, wow, neato. NOT. A cheap, unimaginative wall banner. And a new version of the 1990 "blood pack" containing a live show from their first tour for 'God Hates Us All', which was the weakest Slayer show I've seen (the subsequent Jagermeister tour was much better); it's the same pack with the floating skulls and looks like it was left over.
3. THE MATERIAL - the first two CD's are stuff that any self-respecting Slayer fan has already bought or downloaded, but where's "Sick Boy", or their hilarious butchering of "Born to Be Wild"?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad deal for the price December 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
First of all - this is not the be all and end all of box sets. But this regular version is far from being a rip off (I even got it for only $39). Obviously, this set is a better deal for people who do not have all of their previous releases. But there is also some other stuff that hasn't been released before on the rarities disc and DVD that I think is worth having.
Let's break it down disc by disc.
Disc 1: This is a 'best of' studio track CD going from Reign in Blood through Season in the Abyss, plus three tracks from Decade of Aggression. I never bought Decade of Aggression so at least there is something on it that is not duplicates of what I already own.
Disc 2: 'Best of' from Divine Intervention through God Hates Us All, plus studio tracks from soundtracks and Japan releases. I never bought Undisputed Attitude or Diabolus in Musica. There are 14 tracks on this one that I don't have.
Disc 3: Audio rarities. Range from raw recordings from the very early days in 1983 to recent live cuts from God Hates Us All. Two of the most interesting cuts are from Jeff Hanneman's home recordings that give you an idea how Raining Blood and South of Heaven were fleshed out from the original concept. I could do without the 'maggot story' included with Necrophiliac and the track with Atari Teenage Riot.
Disc 4 (DVD): This is great. Some of it is pretty raw but you really get to see how the band has evolved from four inexperienced guys wearing eyeliner crowded onto a small club stage to the precisely executed chaotic auditorium shows of today. Please note that this DVD is primarily for the historical value for interested fans. If you want a top-quality concert performance with excellent audio and sound quality, get the War at the Warfield DVD.
The 72-page booklet also adds some value.

1.0 out of 5 stars This sub-par box set needs to Die By The Sword December 25, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Let me preface this review by noting that all of the people I've seen who criticize the people who have rightfully pointed out the shortcomings of this set have been by and far illiterate come-latelys. I've been into Slayer since "Show No Mercy" was released--don't tell me I have no right to critique a $90 box set just because mommy and daddy bought you "Divine Intervention" and you think Slayer are above judgment. But I'm about to put this overpriced aberration on the Altar of Sacrifice.
I don't really care about the packaging too much. A metal box would have been nicer than a cardboard one, sure, but I bought the set for the music, not the packaging. But take a look at the discs themselves. All except the DVD are black. Now, as far as I know, a laser beam can't go through totally opaque plastic...Folks, we're being peddled professionally-made CD-Rs. Let's look at the discs Piece By Piece.
Discs 1 and 2 are best-of discs, with disc 2 including some more recent rarities and B-sides. They've chosen to totally neglect all studio versions from the band's Metal Blade years, so I'm already predisposed against them. You can't tell me "Die By The Sword" doesn't belong among this band's best-ofs.
Disc 3 consists of "rarities." Now, to be fair, I realize many of you haven't heard much of this stuff. Out of all the 80s era material on the disc, I had everything as a dub or bootleg except for TWO songs. It's nice to hear live versions of some of their early tunes, but they're available out there through trading! How about some real rarities, like the cover of the Gumby theme song?
