The dotage of a dotard
Wow. Thirteen came off to me like half-spoiled table scraps from their vault. It had its moments (like almost all Megadeth albums do), but it felt completely phoned in. I don’t even remember most of the songs on that album.
11. Killing is my business…and business…
12. So Far So Good So What
14. The system has failed
5. United Abominations
7. The World Needs a Hero
12. So Far...So Good...So What
14. Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?
15. Killing Is My Business...And The Business Is Good!
I would argue you could, and they did, go very, very wrong.And at number 6:
Plus how can you go wrong when a song features Ice-T describing how f'd up you are?
I truly don't understand how folks can enjoy Mission to Mars. The voice-acting, the "I wanna, wanna", the endless dialogue at the end...I would immediately rate it as one of the top 5 worst songs in the entire discography. I legitimately think it's trash. If the music was as amazing as many folks say it is, Dave wouldn't have covered it up with inane voice FX. Or he maybe he would, because as we've seen, he makes some terrible decisions sometimes.Well, regarding the first of these two tracks let me address one thing from the get go: WTF are these garbage lyrics????? Really... "Mission To Mars" may as well be Mustaine's worst lyrical content ever. As for the music itself that's a whole different story: this damned thing is absolutely stunning. Mustaine somehow managed to pull the impossible and combine the radio friendly of Trust with the riffage of Hangar 18. Add to this a power pop like super addictive chorus and a brutal final section (that somehow sounds like if the second part "My Last Words" was written for Rust In Peace) and you'll get a song that's nothing short of superb (those lyrics though...).
Poorly produced I agree. But then again so is KIMBABIG and that doesn't make me love it any less.I'm also glad to see you rank TSHF so highly, as I very much agree. Once again, however, we have polar opposite thoughts on SFSGSW, which I think is one of the sloppiest, most immature, and poorly produced records in Dave's catalog.
Of course it's a tongue in cheek remark. But given the ambiance... it even mingles quite a bit.I would argue you could, and they did, go very, very wrong.
It's indeed a mystery...I truly don't understand how folks can enjoy Mission to Mars.
As I said before I think all those elements are atrocious.The voice-acting, the "I wanna, wanna"
Now this along with the growing tension the music conveys is a whole different story.the endless dialogue at the end
It's not the first time, nor the second, nor the third... And to be fair I think it surpasses at least the dozen of times Dave uses this on his songs.If the music was as amazing as many folks say it is, Dave wouldn't have covered it up with inane voice FX.
Good. I don't.would immediately rate it as one of the top 5 worst songs in the entire discography. I legitimately think it's trash.
