Okay, getting a second CD copy of The System Has Failed; cost £2.69 this time.CD arrived, looks good... couldn't play or rip!
This^Youthansia is OK. The guitar playing feels more subdued than on the previous two albums, so it's a step back for me musically as the guitar playing is one of the main events when I listen to Megadeth. Friedman's style is less shred and more classic rock. It fits the material, but I thought Countdown to Extinction had a better balance of accessible rock tunes and crushing Metal. The songs on here are accessible, there's some good riffing and grooves, but overall I'm not sure if I'd ever come back to it.
Nah. Disconnect is an awesome song, and many others are pretty good. The World Needs A Hero is also a solid song, far far from their worst.Worst choruses of any Megadeth album. Worst vocal harmonies of any Megadeth album. Worst overall lyrics of any Megadeth album. Arguably the worst song of any Megadeth album (the title track). Lots of boring-to-lame guitar playing. A sequel song that’s even worse than “The Unforgiven II”. Utterly pathetic.
I would gladly listen to Risk or Super Collider instead of this one. Worst album of their whole catalog.
