Since this review concerns a fast and energetic album, we'll get to the point as fast as possible. An ingenious acoustic guitar overture leads to an even better track with complex and spellbinding opening part, with clever lyrics and fine vocals. It's "Crystal Ann", the introduction to the song "Alison Hell", by far the most well-known work of the Canadian thrash group Annihilator. Yes, and this text here is about "Alice In Hell", their first album and also the one that many consider the best of their career.

Rating: 9 Fabulous album, the bass is very audible, jeff waters is one hell of a guitarist, and the dsrums keep up well with everything else. Vocals aren't THAT good, which is why its a 9 from me and not any higher. But he still gives as good as he gets\m/

Yes, quite high, but regarding this as my favourite annihilator album, i feel that 'alice in hell' is deserving of at least a 9.

Rating: 8 I listened to it after Never, Neverland, so I was very disappointed by the vocals. I first gave it a 7 because of the voice. After multiple listens, vocals are not that annoying, but still not that good ... Except for the vocals, the guitar, bass and drum work is absolutely awesome ! So I give it a 8, clearly a classic thrash metal album.

  Amazing album! Look at the cover, there is Dave Mustaine in Pyjama

Then = Good, Now = Nothing's Special


it's still better than what any of the new thrash bands release. So now = still great,

Rating: 9 This is brilliant thrash whether you compare it with others or not.

Rating: 9 I agree with Marcel that none of the "new wave" of thrash bands have recorded anything as great as this album. I'm still waiting for one of the new breed of thrashers to blow me away with something like "Peace Sells", "Ride The Lightning", "Bonded By Blood", or indeed, this album. I have a feeling I'll be waiting a long time though!

  Amazing album. Brilliant technical thrash metal is played here. Each song is great but my favourites are probably "Ligeia", "Wicked Mystic" and of course "Alison Hell" (that riff).
