Would use the word "nostalgic", but I didn't start listening to any sort of metal till the early 2000's.

Eh, same situation with me. With the exceptions of some Sabbath, Zeppelin, Metallica, and Megadeth type stuff (not radio friendly, but radio acceptable), I didn't really start listening to metal until around 1998. I definitely wasn't getting deep into the thrash stuff until the summer of 1998, starting finding all sorts of tapes and gobbled 'em up like a hungry, hungry, hippo. Nonetheless, I generally think that my occasional preference for a dirty production is just a nostalgic thing. The reason I figure this is that it generally only applies to albums I grew up listening to a lot; old Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Nasty Savage, Nuclear Assault, and so on, but NOT any thrash that I've gotten into the past 5 years or so.
Trust in god, he'll give you shoes!
