Never, Neverland is really good, Alice in Hell is pretty good, and most of the rest is garbage.

I voted for Never Neverland; I think this is their best work, they've always tried somehow to create another NN, and for istance failed miserably with Criteria for a Black Widow, although that was still a pretty good, decent album. The early Annihilator up to 1996 (the Refresh the demon album if I remember right) was great; after that it's just a hit and miss.

BTW, I don't think Annihilator are overrated, despite the fact they are the best known metal band from Canada.

I also don't think Annihilator are overrated although I only REALLY the first two.
But are they the best known Canadian metal band? I doubt it since Rush (arguably not metal), Voivod, Devin Townsend Band, Strapping Young Lad, 3 Inches Of Blood, Anvil, Exciter, Quo Vadis, Martyr, Gorguts are IMO better known around the world than Annihilator.

Yes I did hear of Strapping young Lad, but I"m afraid this band is way too aggressive for me - I heard some songs on their my space.

Unfortunately I didn't know Exciter, although I'm closer to your age; I stick with just a few thrash bands these days - is there a special Exciter album I should try?

Their debut Heavy Metal Maniacs is still by far their best and then Violnce & Force. So just stick to their first two.

Alice In Hell, great album ^^ I also like Never, Neverland...the prog elements in it fit nicely. Annihilator have released a few more good albums, but not something remarkable as the first ones. The latest SUCK.

Waking the Fury.I like their older stuff but this album is powerfull!!!!The riffs are pure thrash.And the vocals and lyrics are great too.
My favorite song from this album is My Precious Lunatic Asylum,it has great solo and melody.

"Alice In Hell" is a great album but my vote goes to "Never, Neverland" i thought it was a great album very powerful lots of energy... this was also the first album I've heard from Annihilator... i also thought Coburn Pharr was great at Vocals, Randy Rampage was awesome too, but i like Coburn voice more... too bad Coburn didn't make another album with them but i was happy that Randy came back to do "Criteria for a Black Widow" another great album but after that i started to get bored with there stuff

This band wrote superb songs, rarely good albums... Nevertheless the first two albums, "King of the hill" and "Refresh the demon" are good...

Onlookers they bang at command
Cutting your palm and drinking your blood

That's easy.
The answer would be Alice in Hell. I can't really enjoy any of the other Annihilator albums, and Randy Rampage couldn't save Criteria for a Black Widow on his own.

Hmm, I thought I'd already replied in this thread! :\

Anyway, it is "Never, Neverland" for me. It's a perfect blend of melody and thrash, both done expertly well.

I would say Alice In hell blends the two better, plsu the songs are stronger on that one overall as well. Overall Alice In Hell is less filler and more killer to use a fun phrase

I disagree, although "Alice In Hell" is also a great album.

"Never, Neverland" has more variation in it's material, as well as being strong all the way through. Alice is also strong all the way through, but it's not as unique an album, which is why I prefer "Never, Neverland". "Alice In Hell" does however feature my all time fave Annihilator song, "Word Salad"!
