For me Slayer was one of those bands that just blew my mind wide open and changed my worldview forever. I think they have a career of great albums and while some of those albums stand out amongst the rest, they all deserve my respect. There isn't a Slayer album that incites disgust in me the way St. Anger or Load Reload does. So while I agree that some of the more recent albums are far cry from Show No Mercy or Hell Awaits I am still sad I didn't get to see them before they disbanded. I will forever kick myself.
