What an awesome album! Such awesome production on all the instruments and vocals! I've still not heard a more deadly sounding guitar + drum + bass combo than on this album. In particular, I realised pretty early on that guitarist Dimebag Darrell is a true musician; with some quite technical and impressive parts. In particular, I love the key/mood change during the solo of "This Love". I have to admit that I am not a fan of other albums by Pantera, but this album seems to have "it", for me anyway.

Pure rush the whole time. Nobody can thrash like Pantera. Listen to this with a bottle of Firewater and just try not to get in a fight. Good luck!

Absolutely their best album since CFH. The lyrics are well written, the riffs are amazing and the overall sound is breathtaking. My favorite song on this album is 'Hollow' (Dimebag's really got a feeling for sustain =), but all of the songs are really good. If you like Pantera or just the Thrash Metal genre and don't own this record, go out and buy it!

Vulgar Display of Power is by far my favorite Pantera album. You grow to love every song on it!The song "walk" has a very cool and catchy riff. With also a touching song at the end of the cd. I reccomend you take 5 mintues to listen, you wont regret it:)

This is just one of those metal albums everybody's got to have. This Love, F---ing Hostile, Walk, and A New Level are all concert standards and Pantera classics. Mouth for War is my personal favorite because I'm not so into all the screeching vocals, I like more singing. Also it's just well written. It's not just heavy for heavy's sake it has a purpose, you know? Also Hollow is a GREAT song. Great album all around. Final note: That groove at the end of Hollow is F---ING sick. One of the heaviest f---in' grooves I've ever heard.

This CD makes me want to kick someone's ass. Plain and simple. The raw emotion on this album is unbelievable. If you're about to get into a fight, listen to this first and 10:1 you'll win. My favorite track is Take this Love (?). Dimebag Darrel kicks butt on this CD. His guitar playing is seriously heavy to compliment the metal grooves. This is probably one of my favorite metal CD's.

This is my personal favorite Pantera album. Vulger Display of Power is a fitting and strong title, but it doesn't even come close to describing the emotional, and gut wrenching context of this album. Track number 11 is the most interesting and deepest feeling track on the album. The way it switches from mellow to full tilt metal is enough to pop your musical fuse. The lyrics, talking of a lost friend, brother, it could bring the biggest speed metal friek you know down to level. Then at 3:08 Dimebag Darrel works his mastery of metal to show just how much rage it took to write this song. Track four is the ultimat power trip. Walk, This song has the capabilitie to take the most calm and mild mannerd person you know, find the one angry disrespected spot inside of them, bring it to the surface and make them rage. This song accually got mefired from a job once. I could go on and on about this album, but If you haven't heard it and I havewn't convinced you to give it a listen the it doesn't matter anyway.

This album feels much like Cowboys From Hell, but overall, the songs sound more powerful. Still has all the thrashy type speed stuff, but includes songs that are just plain stronger. Just like CFH, I don't really think that this album has any low points, the cd is recorded well, and it has a ton of good songs. I like nearly everything that Pantera has done because their sound is just overwhelming. They are a very powerful band, and this cd shows it very well.
