As a lifelong Megadeth fan, this album is okay.
Nothing is horrible, but I only really enjoy about half these songs.
The guitar sound/album production is a little weird for me. It seems to be pushed into the red levels and harsh on some tracks, reminds me of industrial metal like old Ministry.
At least they are trying something different this time.
Many others will hate the melodic tracks - "Dystopia" and "Poisonous Shadows", but they are my favourites, along with the punk cover song of FEAR's "Foreign Policy";
it is ridiculous that the label did not include the best song, "Melt the Ice Away" (Budgie cover)
(only available on Spotify as a bonus track).
By far one of Megadeth's best! Megadeth has a true gem with this release. These guys continue to release new material and continue to tour to fans pleasure unlike another overrated metal band. I did actually go out and buy this CD to show my support.
Surprisingly good! I've seen them live numerous times and Mustaine's intensity is still very present even after all these years (longwinded rants notwithstanding...but certainly worth price of admission to hear).
Megadeth Won Best Metal Performance for this album in this year's Grammys. Not an avid metal listener but liked the tracks with more instrumental than vocal. Favorites: Poisonous Shadows that includes guitars, violins, bass, drums and even a few piano notes; Conquer of Die! (see "Videos",) is pure instrumental and prove the guitarists are for real.
Very well written songs, blistering, intricate solos, great production, no filler; the addition of Kiko and Adler crush expectations; virtuosity abound. Dave Mustaine, the elder statesman of thrash, is back bruising eardrums for the betterment of humanity.
