iTunes Review

Thirty years after Dave Mustaine put together Megadeth following his infamous stint as Metallica's lead guitarist, he's returned with Megadeth's 14th studio album, a mix of the thrash he pioneered and other hard rock styles. After the expected high-speed chase through synthetic-opiate addiction in "Kingmaker," Mustaine does the nearly unthinkable and slows the band down for the arena-rock challenge of the title track. "Built for War," however, returns with a gnarled and twisted riff that's sure to confound the legions of guitar warriors who see Mustaine's leads as challenges to be mastered. "Dance in the Rain" contains a few monologues and a guest vocal from Disturbed's David Draiman among the nearly danceable rhythms: a far cry from the abrasive militia attack of his best-known work. "The Blackest Crow" adds a banjo (!) to a tune nearly suited for an Appalachian murder ballad. A cover of Thin Lizzy's "Cold Sweat" is an inspired choice and much closer to Megadeth's current sound than anything from its debut album 30 years ago.

Customer Reviews

Megadeth never disappoints...

Through Megadeth's long career, they have had a wide variety of albums ranging from Rust in Pieces to the experimental Risk. I personally enjoy all of Megadeth's works regardless of what style they take. This album is very catchy and has thrashing vibes to it. Some of the lyrics are a little dumbed down, but it's another solid Megadeth album overall.

Love this album

I had forgotten about Megadeth after their slower 90's albums, but this album is so good! I'm glad Dave is back! Great guitar solos, lyrics and heave drum beats. Everything I've missed after rust..forget Metallica, they are weak now, and Dave is metal!

Just a mixed bag.. 3.5 actually

I rounded up because it's still megadeth. But songs such as "Super Collider" "Off The Edge" "Forget To Remember" and "Don't Turn Your Back" are weak.. There's some gems but some low points too.

After he left Metallica in 1983, guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine formed the thrash metal quartet Megadeth. Though Megadeth followed the basic blueprint of Metallica's relentless attack, Mustaine's group distinguished themselves from his earlier band by lessening the progressive rock influences, adding an emphasis on instrumental skills, speeding up the tempo slightly, and making the instrumental attack harsher. By streamlining the classic thrash metal approach and making the music more threatening,...
