There is absolutely no way that the production job on "So Far, So Good... So What!" sounds better than "Rust In Peace" Vim. You're absolutely tripping balls here mate. :)

Big mistake spending money on the remaster...

I can understand the "it's not so heavy" argument although it sounds suits perfectly. And So Far... has a rather poor production... But the songwriting man, there is nothing remotely close to showing off, the riffs are HOLY FUCK WOW. Take No Prisoners... The sheer catchiness of Hangar 18 and Tornado of Souls and their solos. Not to mention the masterpiece that opens the album. I can't rationally explain why you don't like it but damn! YOU SHOULD!

The lyrics are FANTASTIC, some of Dave's best: Take his life but won't take his hair! Brilliant!

Yeah, the riffs are speedy and clever, but are bloody tiresome. It's more about "look what I can play" rather than writing decent songs. And the production. It's nowhere near as heavy as "So Far, So Good...So What" or "Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?", and it just sounds too clean.


Have to back Vim up on these points. The original production job is just way too thin and weedy, the remix/remaster improves this somewhat. And as I've said before, about half of the album is concentrating on sounding technically impressive while forgetting to actually make the songs memorable.

It's frustrating, as the other half of the album is some of the best stuff Megadeth ever wrote.

Really? Have you even read this?

4. Five Magics

Bestow upon me knowledge
Wizard—all knowing, all wise
I want to rule this kingdom
Make sweet the breeze now defiled
Dethrone the evil prince's iron fists
In velvet gloves of sin
Parade the grey-robed monks
The vestal virgins, wheel the wyvern's in

Let the ceremony consecrate the marriage
Let me be the protege of five magics

Give me alchemy, give me wizardy,
Give me sorcery, thermatology
Electricity, magic if you please,
Master all of these, bring him to his knees

I master five magics, I master five magics
I master five magics, I master five magics

Possessed with hellish torment, possessed with hellish torment
I master magics five, I master magics five
Hunting the abyss lord, hunting the abyss lord
Only one will stay alive, only one will stay alive
He who lives by the sword, he who lives by the sword
Will surely also die, will surely also die
He who lives in sin, he who lives in sin
Will surely live the lie


And I'm sure you love the oh-so-subtle phallic imagery here...

9. Rust In Peace...Polaris

Tremble you weakings, cower in fear
I am your ruler, land, sea and air
Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall
I am nuclear murderer I am Polaris
Ready to pounce at the touch of a button
My systems locked in on military gluttons
I rule on land, air and sea
Pass judgement on humanity
Winds blow from the bowels of hell
Will we give warnings, only time will tell
Satan rears his ugly head, to spit into the wind
I spread disease like a dog
Discharge my payload a mile high
Rotten egg air of death wrestles your nostrils
Launch the Polaris, the end doesn't scare us
When will this cease
The warheads will all rust in peace
Bomb shelters filled to the brim
Survival such a silly whim
World leaders sell missiles cheap
Your stomach turns, your flesh creeps

High priests of holocaust, fire from the sea
Nuclear winter spreading disease
The day of final conflict
All pay the price
The third world war
Rapes peace, takes life
Back to the start, talk of the part
When the Earth was cold as ice
Total dismay as the sun passed away
And the days where black as night

Eradication of Earth's
Population loves Polaris

The remaster is junk.

I thought RIP didn't sound too great production wise when I first revisited it again in the late 90s, but now I like it. It isn't too clean or dirty. Marty's lead tone is superb, it just cuts throuh everything

It's my honest opinion that anyone getting stuck at the lyrics is completely missing the point of thrash metal really. Nothing much wrong with those by metal standards anyway.

Gotta feel a little sorry for Megadeth. Their moment of glory, after 12 nominations and then...

There was an awkward moment when, as Megadeth approached the stage to accept their long-awaited Grammy Award, the house band played Metallica's Master of Puppets, reported Loudwire.


Ah, the Grammys... As clueless ever! A much better choice than Ghost from last year. Megadeth deserved to finally win a Grammy, but to play a Metallica song? Fuck. Off. And that fat slag Adele can just fuck right off too!

Dave seems to have developed a sense of humour... but where the fuck was everyone - empty seats!

What were they thinking?! The sound people should actually be informed of the winner ahead of time so that they play the music of the winners, or better yet, the bloody song they won the award for! It seems ludicrous to play another band's song at such a moment. Metallica was obviously not the wisest choice either. :?

Recently listened to Youthanasia again and I have to say it's one of my favourite Megadeth albums. 4 fists pushing 5.

I wouldn't go that far, but there was a special chemistry to the band at that time. Songs like Addicted To Chaos are simply timeless in my view, I never get sick of them.

It's the Grammys. They generally have no idea about metal, so probably didn't even know the Metallica/Megadeth history.

I'd say it was a 4, personally.
