^ My thoughts exactly.
5. 502 - A cool little guitar riff starts up this song. Kinda feels like one of those old films where a guy cranks up the Model T and breaks all the laws and the police are chasing after him... and remember, they're using fucking Model T's. It's hilarious in every sense of the word, and that's also kind of what I think of this song. The verses are decent but not outstanding, the chorus is just bland, and the whole thing is that stupid metal "I'm gonna do the dumbest shit and watch me be cool doing it!" thing that I hate. Dunno if that was Dave's intention with this one or not, but that's how it strikes me, certainly. I do like that part where the car sounds come in before the riff pummels you again, but beyond that, this song goes nowhere for me. The outro is way too long as well. Easily worse than everything that's preceded this song. 5/10
7. Liar - Oh god... this song is terrible. The opening riff isn't exactly my favorite, but the rest of the song only gets worse. Two points of redemption: Mustaine's pronunciation of "sewer rat" and him pulling off that fast-paced section in the middle. Other than that, this song is shit. Terrible diss track in which the band sound worse than whoever they're trying to rip on. The lyrics are completely juvenile and as a whole, the song is a blot in their discography so far. Bonus: Using gay as an insult. What are you, twelve? Bleh. 2/10
I await any sort of explanation on why "Liar" isn't dogshit.
Really doesn't do much for me.The guitar intro rips.
The groove is decent enough but marred by Dave.
That is one of the only impressive things about the song.Just try doing that vocal bridge (“Start trouble, spread pain...”) in one breath like Dave does.
FTFY.The endless stream of shit-talking is cringe-inducing.
He's got far better moments on the album.Dave sounds great on “ah, you, you, you fucking liar!!”
