  1. I think you’re more committing heresy by saying “Youthansia” is better than this. I remember rushing to the music store in 1994 when it came out and being disappointed for the rest of the year. It’s an album I still can’t take very seriously and marked Megadeth’s bigger slide (moreso than “Countdown to Extinction”) into radio friendly territory.

  2. Fun read,,, respect the authors opinion. That being said I was at Calgarys Megadeth 20th aniversary of rust in peace tour and it kicked ass. Everyone was soaked in Vodka and beer, bodies were riding on the crowd, mosh pits and mini mosh pits were all over the place. Ive seen Megadeth 3 other times and this was such a good show. The way Dave, Dave and crew dug into the classic tunes of Rust in pease were Fkin amazing, fast, heavy and out of this world. Damn that was a killer show.

  3. Fantastic album, their best easily. After this the next few albums went downhill. Saw them open for Judas Priest on this tour and they were amazing.

  4. I agree it’s more of a transitional album that blew up larger than it deserved. For me, the bigger deal was definitely Countdown to Extinction. Also, this came out the same year as Seasons in the Abyss – now that’s a 5-star record!
