It's far from being one of their best or strongest albums. In fact it is somewhere near the bottom of the list. Even for a cover album this seems weak. It is loud, and fast, and powerful yes but many of the tracks sound like noise.
As a massive fan of punk, and hardcore I was excited when I heard about this one. I was dissapointed needles to say. Araya is out of control here and it doesn't seem like he is really into the songs, whats more is you can't understand a single thing he says during most of the tracks.
All is not lost though. The Minor Threat cover 'Guilty Of Being White' is fantastic as is the reworking of The Stooges 'I Wanna Be Your Dog' which they change to 'I Wanna Be Your God' is true Slayer fashion. Also the single original track on the album 'Gemini' is a rare classic in the bands cannon.
Not the best or most satisfying Slayer album out there but for true fans it will be a treat.
the spirit of smashing the grip of authority - be it political or spiritual - fit hand in bloody glove with the path that slayer was already on; and while honoring your heroes/influences with a tribute album wasn't new even then, UA remains one of the best xamples of how it's done. the results become almost originals as the choices are filtered through the rabid beast that has always been slayer
however, stopping with this album would do a huge disservice to the bands - and their compatriots - who inspired this singular effort. i know most amerikans are historically challenged, but this is easily within the memory of most of our father's spent dna so there is no xcuse for not rediscovering the tattered blueprint that helped shape modern metal's sordid affair with dissident energy

You would assume Slayer covering punk tunes would really be a logical idea even if you aren't into punk. It just simply ends up not being good. Read morePublished on February 28, 2010 by Take No Prisoners
I love Slayer but I hate punk rock. All but two songs on this album are punk cover songs and that's my reason for the two stars. Read morePublished on April 7, 2008 by Octavius
