Slayer stopped progressing with Seasons. CI is a fast thrash record. Big fucking deal. They're beating a dead horse. And a live horse. They're beating a dead horse and a live horse.
You recall to mind the time an interviewer (who was trying to tick him off) asked Angus Young what it was like to be in a band that had recorded the same album 12 times. Angus responded, "13 times." Some bands just aren't supposed to be progressing anywhere. The albums are there and you can either enjoy them or just not. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
But since I like all their albums, I'm guessing we're always gonna have different viewpoints, but I do repesct your opinion
