As the last installment of Testament's "big three" albums, a series of well-done thrash metal classics, Practice What You Preach comes in the last years of thrash's Golden Age. With great production, clever riffs and astounding solos, as well as decent vocal work, this album is probably one of the best metal albums of 1989 and a certain classic of the band. It also has a distinctive place at the frayed ends of Testament's prowess; before they turned into a less interesting and less creative style followed from Souls of Black through Demonic.

Rating: 9 This was my first Testament album, and I love it. It's not as strong as New Order or The Legacy but its still pretty damn good.

Rating: 10 Alex Skolnick Owned 1989. We all wanted to play like him. I spent a lot of that year & 1990 learning that Album on guitar. I was in a band named Nihilist in the early 90's & have a VHS of us covering "The Ballad" Bad Quality & we were a little out of tune, But I'm glad I still have it!! Cheers Metal Heads!!

Rating: 9 Probably their most underrated album of the 90's. Full of great rumbling bass and some really cracking riffs, and i believe chuck billy uses some of his deeper growls here as well, making the whole thing less straightforward thrash than it already was.

Dammit:/ Ah well, i guess my overflowing enthusiasm for this album forced me to write the album off in the wrong decade. LOL indeed.
