“First of all, I am an old Testament fan. I mean that quite literally. I bought The New Order in 1988 or 89 on cassette. I bought Practice What You Preach shortly after, also on cassette. I loved these albums back then, but have put them on the back burner since the age of CD’s and digital music. I didn’t think I’d enjoy them as much as an “adult”, but boy was I wrong! I may or may not be starting a midlife crisis and have reverted back to some of my more youthful pleasures. I really wanted to get The New Order and PWYP only, but found that this set was cheaper for 5 albums than just those 2. I still listen mostly to the aforementioned albums, but enjoy The Ritual, Souls of Black and The Legacy to a lesser degree. I have found a new respect for the band after actually listening to the lyrics. They linger around environmental issues and what happens when we don’t treat Mother Earth so well, with post apocalyptic nightmares. .

“ Cost effective thrash starter kit for those looking to get into Testament. Legacy and The New Order are worth the price of admission alone. We're talking old school metal here. Guess what else is old school? The mastering. Don't expect sonic brilliance, or well defined bass either, especially on Legacy. Nothing has been remastered - which is actually good when you think of some of the brick-walled remaster disasters of late. Sounds just like it did when it was released and that's just fine by me.
