    When I was 16, I was stoned, listening to this album in bed I hallucinated and saw hell with the beast himself on my ceiling. One of the best albums of all time.

    Don't like this one. It has somewhat thrashy feel here and here, that works pretty bad in this particular case and ruins traditional heavy metal aesthetics for me. It's instantly clear upon hearing that Painkiller was released in 1990 or so, under the influence of latter-day metal fashions, even if these influences are rather minor after all. This album is not bad by any means, but I prefer '76-'84 stuff over this every day.
