The original post

What are the albums that seemingly everyone hates but you think are great? Or so-called masterpieces that you find mediocre at best? Do you love Risk or Lulu? Do you thimk Blackwater Park or Painkiller are steaming piles of horse crap?
For me, Master Of Puppets was just boring. Take Welcome Home, Battery and The Thing That Should Not Be off it and I'd give it a 5.
I do, however, love Gallhammer's Ill Innocence (as well as The End), Judas Priest's Turbo and Black Sabbath's Seventh Star.
How about you? Where does your opinion differ to the masses. Go on, be honest. Its the internet, no one will ever know.

Carcass - Swansong: Kind of a thrashy, melodic direction for the band, but I like it!! My friend gave it to me because he thought it was garbage, so I figured, "What the heck? Free CD!"

To add to the discussion about "revivalist": the difference in the case of Thrash is that the genre was pretty much dead in the 90's. Black Metal and Death Metal, on the other hand, have been continually present on the scene since they started. Unlike Thrash, they didn't went through some "Golden Age" and almost disappeared a few years later.
Just try to find any good Thrash in the 90's. You will either find stuff that strays away from Thrash quite a bit or albums that just flat out suck.

On the flip-side to that I would say Heartwork is completely mediocre, never really got the love for that record.

Testament was pretty solid in the 90's, especially Low. Slayer had Seasons which is pretty close to a thrash classic.

I also liked Megadeth's Youthanasia quite a bit. Yes, it's a bit more of a rocking album, you might even say it leans in an arena rock vs thrash direction, but it has solid songwriting. "Family Tree" is one of my favorites.

And how can we forget Pantera? They pretty much dominated the mid-late 1990's. Pure, classic thrash? No, but who can argue with Great Southern Trendkill?! Smack in the middle of the "metal is dead" era, drunk-ass Phil managed to sober up long enough to put that to shame!

Couldn't agree more! Tracks 6 and 8 do have some nice guitar duels, though. I'm always up for a lead duel.

Never liked Testament one bit and "Low" I find boring as hell.
"Seasons In The Abyss" is a very good album but it's from 1990. I meant after 1990 when I referred to the 90's (I know it's a bit weird).
Megadeth and Pantera I never liked either. Apart from Slayer, I don't like American Thrash.
