This is the third album by one of the first thrash metal bands ever. This is the second with Steve Souza, and while the style of the songs is still very similar, there's a slight change in the lyrics, with a higher content of humour.
The album overall is produced as well as any of the other Exodus albums (those being Bonded By Blood, Pleasures Of The Flesh, Impact Is Imminent, and Force Of Habit), with the typical 'sheet metal' sound of thrash guitars. The drums, while competent, aren't groundbreaking.
There's also 2 covers, Low Rider, and Overdose, which are not completely expected.
Best songs, Toxic Waltz (apparently the song that killed thrash), Last Act of Defiance, and the title track.
