#4 - World Painted Blood (Sony)
BraveWords.com's "Metal" Tim Henderson wrote in his "dissection" of the album: "World Painted Blood easily sits beside Slayer’s greatest works of dark art. More remarkably, this is not Reign In Blood or Seasons part II. It’s a giant leap for these aging thrash legends over 25 years into their career. Where Christ Illusion may have appeared rushed, thrown together last minute and a virtual Kerry King metalcore fest, World Painted Blood emerges unblemished and revolutionary. Every metal band on the planet needs to step back and take a deferential bow. Slayer make METALLICA and MEGADETH cower. Death Magnetic and Endgame are worthy of applause, but neither can touch this output."
