"Legendary thrash metal band Anthrax made history by being one of the first ever metal bands to include a blend of rap into their songs nearly a decade before the style became popular. To this day, I believe that Anthrax has never received the respect they deserve.The main focus of this E.P. is obviously the groundgreaking single "I'm The Man". The song is quite simply hilarious, and the mix of musical stylings makes it perfect. The verses sound similar to a Beastie Boys song, and the chorus is pretty Gwar-like. Some of today's rock-rap bands who think making 60 songs about killing someone is "hilarious" should listen to the originaters and take notes. There's also another version of this song on "Attack of the Killer B's", but it doesn't compare to the genius of this one.The cover of Black Sabbath's "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" is extremely well-done and and shows off a different side of Joey's vocals. The only flaw with this E.P. is the live version of "I'm The Man", which sounds disorganized and sloppily done (but even then, the ad-libbed stuff from the band members is still pretty funny). The two live songs originally from "Among the Living" ("Caught In A Mosh" and "I Am The Law") are a nice addition and almost as good as the originals. Overall, if you're a fan of Anthrax, or a fan of humorous rap-metal, this is a must have."

"I?M THE MAN (CENSORED RADIO VERSION) ? This is from where many of today?s bands draw their shtick (you know who you are!). A groundbreaking meld of rap, metal and warped sense of humour that still shows its strengths 15 years after it was recorded. Check out the ?blink-and-you?ll-miss-it? sampling of Metallica?s ?Master Of Puppets?!I?M THE MAN (DEF UNCENSORED VERSION) ? The same track as above pushed up to ten on the attitude meter. Also check out the song?s ?Halva Nageliah? riffs. Who said speed metallers had no sense of humour?SABBATH BLOODY SABBATH ? A frenetic cover of a Black Sabbath classic tune. Joey Belladonna had the most melodic voice in the whole of Speed Metal, and a certain magic was lost after he was fired by Scott Ian and Charlie Benante.I?M THE MAN (LIVE- EXTREMELY DEF ILL UNCENSORED VERSION) ? A highlight of the Belladonna era live set where Joey would change positions with Charlie and give the ol? tonsils a rest. This version shows the energy and fun of Anthrax performances with some killer audience participation.I AM THE LAW (LIVE) ? This classic tune always goes down well live. Not many bands could pull of a tribute to Judge Dredd. Anthrax did it all the way in style.CAUGHT IN A MOSH (LIVE) ? Another classic from the ?Among The Living? album captured live and snarling . . .the way the track should be played!"
