Post Re: MEGADETH 'Dystopia'.............(official thread)
So I've given "Dystopia" some time to sink in & I've gotta say that I was pleasantly surprised. I honestly find it as appealing as anything the band have done since "Rust In Peace" way back in 1990. The tracklisting is very consistent until the last two tracks which kinda spoil things & bring my score down a bit. I think the two new faces did a pretty good job & I like the overall sound. There are plenty of those trademark Megadeth hooks on display without there being any real anthems. The instrumental "Conquer or Die!" is my favourite track with Kiko Loureiro getting a chance to play a more expansive role. Overall I'm going with a 3.5/5 on this occasion but it would only take the omission of very ordinary "The Emperor" for me to bump it up to a 4/5.

...it's decent but I prefer System and Endgame if we are talking of post Countdown output...

It's very appropriate actually that there is a song about 'The Emperor' on this album seeing as how everyone's convinced themselves it's a lot better than it actually is.

I relistened to Endgame last week and really quite enjoyed it. I would not put Dystopia ahead of it right now, they are about even.

I definitely prefer The System Has Failed to Dystopia.

I don't have any time for "The System Has Failed" to be honest. More than half of the songs do nothing for me.

I think general consensus is it is surprisingly good, but isn't going to displace Rust In Piss as everyone's (mistakenly) best album.

Indeed, I've heard a lot of people likening it to Youthanasia and Countdown as far as quality is concerned. Say what you will about those two albums Vim, but I'm sure you'd sooner listen to them than bloody Super Collider. After I saw that film clip, I was content to put Megadeth to bed... :?



What a load of utter garbage.

The bloke who used to host the Metal Bar TV show called that video "Megadeth does Sixteen Candles". Dystopia is better than Youthanasia, and all are better than Supercollider.

Which are all better than Rust In Peace!

"All are better than Super Collider" is the only sane thing in that post! :P

The small print is particularly hilarious! Super Collider, better than Rust in Peace. I think you take the prize of most schizophrenic opinion ever. :mrgreen:

Dave Mustaine fucked my mum. :mrgreen:

Nah, it's one of those things which has just never clicked with me. I know your opinions on lyrics, but I think a lot of Rust In Peace is quite juvenile when you put it up against songs like "Peace Sells" or "In My Darkest Hour". It was like a regression rather than progress. 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.

I have seriously given it a chance. I bought it on cassette when it came out. I thought it might sound better on CD, so I bought it on CD. It didn't. I thought it might have sounded better remastered, so I bought the remastered CD. It didn't. So fuck it, Mustaine and co. got money for the same piece of shit three times, which means I don't feel bad about downloading "Dystopia". 8-)
