I wore the grooves off Fistful of Metal. Then I wasn't too sure about the Armed and Dangerous EP. Spreading the Disease was a classic and I didn't think they could top it. Then came Among the Living. From the opening notes of the title track it was a crushing ride to the end. I immediately loved this album. I graduated from high school in May 1987. Our senior week at the shore was the same week Anthrax was playing with Testament at Pulsations nightclub in Glen Mills, PA. I drove home from the shore 2 hours so I wouldn't miss the show, and to this day I am so glad I did. They creamed it, and I saw I'm the Man performed for the first time. What a cool experience when you didn't know it was coming. In my eyes, they never topped Among the Living.

This album is awesome from among the living to Imitation of life it never let's up. Spreading the disease was good but this album takes it to another level. I am the Law, Caught in the mosh, skeleton's and Indians are my favorites.

I love all the Joey albums but this is undoubtedly the best. It's funny to look back and see they only really had 4 records in their prime (sorry I don't consider the Turbin or Bush eras their prime). So much good thrash came out of the mid to late 80's. And Benante was and still is a beast.

I was listening to Spreading the Disease today and that was bringing back some great memories also. Although there were some good tracks on State of Euphoria, I just never fully warmed up to it as a whole. I thought Persistence of Time was excellent, but still never came close to Among the Living.
Among is one of my all time favorite thrash albums. I've loved it since I was about 12 circa 1988.

Classic album, their 2nd best.
Persistence is slightly better.

Just a heads up that Scott Ian and Charlie Benante will be on That Metal Show tonight.
And, yeah, Among is a great album.
