  • Again, this album divided the fans. For my part, I thought this album was great. Sure there was a newer 'chart friendly' approach to some of the songs. But they were as good as anything else Slayer had done. They just showed a different style which freshened up Slayers sound. Like anyone else I prefer the fast stuff but appreciate the change of pace from time to time. Great tunes are still great tunes and this album is full of 'em.....

  • This album is awesome. It suffers from having to follow RIB. That was its only problem. Many fans were disappointed at the time because they thought Slayer had 'slowed' down but they were just progressing with song writing and ideas. It would be boring if they just kept remaking RIB every few years and would detract from the originality they have always had. South of Heaven was my first Slayer album and I love it now as I did back then....
