Just posing the question and a discusion...
Do you think that the new slayer album 'Christ Illusion' is comparable to the era '86 - '90?

Here is my opinion...
This is the best album slayer has released in 16 years... Its a band that sounds so much more at home with dave lombardo on drums... Although its still not quite in the same league as Seasons in the Abyss... But its got the right sound. Its great to see slayer back on top of their game in terms of studio releases.

Slayer's best album from many many years... Now they're back on track and making Slayer sound as I like it! And of course,this isn't a R.I.B. not even close,that one is Untouchable...

erm, this topic is most likely to be blocked, since this can be discused in an album review, anyway, i think the album is pretty good and is really a back to the roots albums with some modern touches.

yesssssssssssss!!!

first of all this album is one of the greatest heavy metal albums of all times
when i got the album and played the first track flesh storm..
i knew only lombardo is back not slayer cos simply i never thought slayer are away from what they are all about
every slayer album is a masterpiece to me!

fans can talk about the band reunited classic line up
fans can talk about the best slayer album since seasons in the abyss
or what ever....
slayer just being themselves and absolutely nothing more
just everything you love about slayer is here
from track one to track ten youre hearing nothing but the best heavy metal out there
araya spits the lyrics with huge hate
insane solos
remarkable drums
just Incredible energy and hate as every slayer cold blooded album!
this album aint calling for peace at all

I have been a die hard Slayer fan since 1985. I regret to say I think this album sounds generic and rushed. I don't hear all the catchy king/hanneman riffs I am used to. I thought maybe it was me but most of my die hard slayer friends said the same thing. Toms vocals are starting to sound like the same song over and over. I hope the new album brings me some "New Faith"

To be fair, Araya's voice has always been a little monotone...

This album is pretty poor by Slayer standards, in fact the worst album they've ever made.

Its a very cool album. I really like it. I love the song 'Flesh Storm'.

And yup, Reign In Blood is one of their bests too.

Well this band has been their kicking ass for the past 25 yrs and still manages a realy decent album...i think it was realy good (Better then God hates us all,Diabulus in Musica and Divine Intervention)

May fav albums will always remain R.I.B and Show no Mercy,but Christ Illusion was pretty good

IMO God Hates Us All (which is not a really great album) is better than Christ Illusion. GHUA has a "personallity", the songs have a variety and even the lyrics sound to me much better.

CI is not that great, I don't even remeber my fav song from that album. The ONLY good thing on that album is the production and that it is the heaviest Slayer album since many years. But that does NOT make it a great album. To me it is just decent.
