A splendid, ripsnorting, and hugely silly record. The quality of the music is a matter of opinion, and that's mine. But to assert "the lyrics ... are just racist - okay?" you have to ignore everything else Scott Ian has said or done, ever. You may not think that the ironic intent has been successfully communicated, and that would be a valid criticism. To ignore that intent, and so to libel some guys (Scott Ian and Charlie Benante)who did more to introduce positive, antidiscriminatory messages into the generally wretchedly right-wing world of metal than just about anyone else, is hardly sustainable.

Right this is a difficult one. Thrash metal's most controversial record rears it head with the metal revival. Firstly, this was much coveted in its original form. Firstly, because of its limited availability, but also because of its nototious lyrics. If it wasnt for the presence of cult hero Dan Lilker and Scott 'Not' Ian (Both Anthrax), this record would have probably been lost in the mists of time.
It is by no means awful, but get past the aura this record has, and you realise it isnt that good either. Most of the songs are short and pointless and for those that last longer than a minute, there is much repetition and is mostly unengaging. You could probably find a picture of this album in the dictionary under the word 'Amateur'.
Musically, for completists only, really. But buy it if you want a little bit of thrash history in your home.
As for the lyrics? They arent ironic, they are just racist - okay?
