Slayer - Decade of Aggression

9/10

Now THIS is the quintessential live Slayer album. Araya gets buried in the mix at times, and it's a little too long, but the tracklist is great, covering every album up to that point and there's plenty of energy (it sounds like it's all from one show even though the tracks were taken from three different performances). I don't know why they decided to go with that title, though; it makes it sound like a compilation that would be superfluous for everyone who had all the studio albums already. It's a great introduction to the band and one of the better metal double lives I've heard.
