Just finished Rex Brown's biography, which I highly recommend.

I voted Metal Magic because it has one of the best album covers of all time and "Diamond" Darrell's smokin' leads.

As far as I'm concerned, Trendkill is my favorite one, and one of those records that pass the test of time easily. The mix of sheer aggression and melancholy makes it unique in Pantera discography. Songs are solid, guitars are sharp as hell, lyrics are fine and Phil never sung so good. Thanks to the band being on the verge of destruction with Phil isolated in New Orleans, depressed, angry, probably drugged to the bone, hanging out with other sickoes like Seth Putnam and Mike Williams, they managed to create a monster.

Far Beyond Driven is also very fine, but its a bit "one way" even if there are some of their greatest songs like Slaughtered, Use My Third Arm or Good Friends & A Bottle Of Pills.

Reinventing The Steel is total rubbish.

Other albums are cool.

Far beyond driven

Rex book is mostly good because of the constant complaining about Vinnie Laughing

Cowboys from Hell and Power Metal for listening. Far Beyond Driven/Trendkill for the gym and all around fighting.

I've never understood the bashing that Reinventing gets all the time.

Voted Trendkill, but CFH and FBD are right up there as well. Haven't listened to them in forever though, so a binge may change my vote.

Edit: And I love that my 420th post was in a Pantera thread

I also went with The Great Southern Trendkill. To me, it is up there with Machine Head's Burn My Eyes in terms of weight and atmosphere, and Far Beyond Driven is not far behind.

Don't know what to vote, everything is decent.
I love the main riff on "Revolution is my name".

Pretty much everything from Cowboys From Hell on, but my personal favorite is Far Beyond Driven. Best songs, best riffs, best Dimebag tone hands down. FIVE MINUTES ALOOOOOOOOONE.
