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.

This is a great album in my opinion, Its up there for my favourite album this year. My favourite tracks would be "Flesh Storm" & "Skeleton Christ"

Christ Illusion is IMO the best Slayer done since Reign in Blood! I do think this album is even better than South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss. I think I'd consider CI to be Slayer's third best work and Hell Awaits their second best.
The songs on CI are excellent live and Jihad and Cult are some of the best songs ever from this band! I LOVE CHRIST ILLUSION!

Well I really love this album, infact i'm listening to it as I type lol. It isn't better then RIB, SOH or Seasons though. It's definetly better then all their albums since Seasons, and I really don't understand why it's so frowned upon, maybe people just get their hopes up for an album like RIB and disappoint themselves when the album is no where near that good lol.

One of my least favorite Slayer albums, big disappointment. Flesh Storm and Jihad are cool though.

best work since one and a half decade, but doesnt mean its any good.
I think its okay, its an avarage album compared to all other albums released in the last few years
I liked Flesh Storm, Jihad and Cult in the beginning. now I just think Cult is the only good song.
compared to elder songs, its quite a good song. better than any song of South Of Heaven and half of Seasons In The Abyss in my opinion.

its not a disappointment to me, I thought they would release some shitty album like God Hates Us All again

I agree with Woutjinho. And I think that Seasons In The Abyss is better than Christ illusion, but, what the hell. My favorite song from Christ Illusion would be Jihad, but i still don't think it could beat any of the songs from Seasons In The Abyss.

It's their best since Seasons, but I think that's it. Not terrible, but not great.

No, not even close, in fact I prefer most of the Bostaph era Slayer to it. Which is not to say I don't like it. I do. I like every Slayer album, but I have to admit that I am a Slayer apologist, they have been my favorite band basically since I first discovered them many years ago. I think Christ Illusion has been overhyped and is probably their second worst album, only ahead of Diabolus in Musica. A lot of that could be because I really like both Divine Intervention and God Hates Us All, which many people seem to not. I guess I can understand why some people don't like GHUA, it is slower and some of the songs are somewhat generic, but I don't get the thumbs down opinion on Divine Intervention. The only thing I can see wrong with the album is that it follows the same template as those that came before it, but tons of bands do that. I don't see anyone saying And Justice is bad because it follows the same template as Ride the Lightning or Master of Puppets.

Christ Illusion - sucks to say the least
It is but a weak attempt at doing another 'Reign in Blood'. Need they be reminded that this is not 1986? Nothing can bringback albums like 'Hell Awaits' and 'Reign in Blood'.

I like Christ Illusion, I think they wrote good songs for this one. I'm still enjoying the lyrics. I dont find it boring at all.
Considering what they have achieved so far and their longevity I think they deserve

I like Christ Illusion, the best song is Cult on this album.
But I wish to have for christmas Reign in Blood.
And I think their album (Reign in Blood) is the best album that Slayer have done.

Christ Illussion is one of the best albums the last decade! Every time slayer have a new album all extreme bands listen it and copy the feauture sound of extreme metal madness.

I meant the song Cult was better than any song of South of Heaven and half of Seasons In The Abyss.
but looking at it to the whole album... Seasons In The Abyss is way better than Christ Illussion.

I haven't fucking listened to Christ Illusion in a year and according to my latest post I think it's better than South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss? Well, I fucking doubt myself but we'll see as soon as I buy it.

I like half of the songs, but the other half is kind of boring and run of the mill for them. It's not too bad after GHUA and DIM.

Christ Illusion is for sure, a big step up from their other releases in the 90's. They're for sure going back to their old sound, although not quite achieving the greatness of Reign in Blood and such. Still it's a good start, it's nice to see Slayer playing that good old evil thrash

King is a great guitarist, but Slayer is so overrated. God Hates Us All had a number of good tracks, although there are about three or four tracks that share extremely similar riffs.

Maybe it's because I only listened to Christ Illusion two or three times, but I didn't think it sounded like their old material and quite frankly it's their worst work ever. Slayer needs to throw in the towel before they run their career into the dirt.

Yeah, of course CI is comparable to that era
IMO i think that Slayer with God hates us all and Christ illusion moved back to the quality of their better albums like Reign in blood and Seasons in the abyss.
