Peace Selllos...But Who´s Buying is the second album from Megadeth.

From: SIXXSWINE Date: March 19, 2003 at 4:38
The second & last disc with the Classic Megadeth line-up. This is must have for any getting into speed metal/thrash metal. This is at least a 9.5, great songs & great musicianship. The stand out tracks are the title track, wake up dead & devil's island. Check it out if you dare! 9.5 on the swine scale....

From: Fat Freddy Date: March 22, 2003 at 20:51
One of the all time classic thrash records, right up there with Metallica's KILL'EM ALL and Overkill's FEEL THE FIRE in my opinion. They would never top this album!

From: jason (FA-Q) Date: June 30, 2003 at 19:55
Good album, to bad the production sucks.

From: jon Date: August 30, 2003 at 22:42
Great album!! Good beat for Peace Sells as well. One more thing, Metallica sucks!

From: RR-Finland Date: September 18, 2003 at 5:40
For my opinion, Metallica´s Kill ´em All beats this one really badly (what Fat Freddy was talking about)! Piece Sells is a good tune and there´s a couple of more, but this is not that solid what they did with R.I.P. line-up.

From: Zze Date: October 21, 2003 at 4:55
this is speed, power and early thrash metal, prolly the best Megadeth album ever, I love it. some lyrics sound like a b-horror tale sometimes

From: francisco Date: January 1, 2004 at 14:56
best album- along w/rust in peace-Mustaine highly inspired, some jazz influences. bad sound, really dark atmosphere, dark/black metal lyrics. very agressive and talented.

From: ae-ae/metalhead Date: May 5, 2004 at 16:12
megadeth , slayer and testament.....METAL GODS!!! FUCK SLIPKNOT!!!

From: Twitch Date: May 22, 2004 at 1:28
Best. Master of Puppets, Reign In Blood and this made the Holy Trinity back in the day...

From: Luis Vibrion Date: May 29, 2004 at 4:48
An unique sound, unique song writing and structure makes this one of the best metal albums ever. Not for the newcomers, must be assimilated first.

From: motley crue fan Date: June 3, 2004 at 5:33
Not their best album but got some hard hitting riffs there. remind me of the early motley crue and ratt.

Megadeth should be compared with other bands of the genre, such as Anthrax, Metallica, Slayer, etc....comparing them to the Crue or Ratt is just damn silly...

From: jack Date: June 4, 2004 at 1:58
slayer?i thought they are much more heavier and brutal than megadeth.But,anyway its better than comparing them to crue or ratt.my mistake.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 7, 2004 at 18:27
Good album, but not the classic as many say it is. The title track is one of the top metal songs ever, and "Wake Up Dead" is awesome. The rest of the tracks contain great riffs but thats about it. 7/10

From: Psychotron502 Date: August 4, 2004 at 20:02
this is gonna be the first remaster i get. when the production is updated, this album will kick loads of ass(not that it already doesnt)

From: adanevans Date: August 6, 2004 at 8:00
con todos mis respetos, a mi Metallica siempre me han tocado un poco los cojones...(vale, Kill'em all se deja escuchar). Los cuatro primeros temas del disco son sublimes, Chris Poland es una puta maquina de la guitarra... IMPRESIONANTE!!!!!!!!.8,5/10

From: Steve Date: September 2, 2004 at 7:46
Being as commercially acclaimed (in the metal scene) as it is I was expectimg something killer. This is by no means there best album, and its preety boring too. Preety Dissapointing.

From: RATTLEHEAD Date: September 8, 2004 at 19:19
This is got to be my favorite Megadeth album. I like all the other ones to but this one is a classic. PEACE SELLS... BUT WHO'S BUYING?

From: RATTLEHEAD Date: September 19, 2004 at 15:31
Megadeth's new album fucking rocks!!!!!! If you havent got The System Has Failed yet you need to get off your lazy ass and go buy it. Trust me, youll be glad that you did.

From: GLAM FAN Date: April 19, 2005 at 0:36
No doubt megadeth best album although countdown to extinction and rust in peace is not far behind! The title track and wake up the dead is the best song in this list while the cover song of i ain't superstitious ad even more quality to the album. The guitar work in this album is just perfect. This album is in the class of metallica's master of puppet and slayer's reign in blood. A true thrash masterpicece!

From: ed Date: May 12, 2005 at 16:31
The masterpiece by MEGADETH! All the thrash fans should own this!

From: rockhardrock Date: August 26, 2010 at 5:54
not as much progressive element on this one compered to rust in peace album, but still my favourite album by them. my favs: peace sells, wake up dead, good morning black friday, devils island and i ain't superstitious

From: pie75 Date: September 7, 2010 at 7:53
a true metal master peice and dead set classic wake up dead is my favourite megadeth song even lars ulrich said secretly it was one of his favourite albums but how about the conjuring,peace sells,devils island,good mourning/black friday and my last words anyone who says this aint a classic clearly has their hand on it

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 1, 2014 at 22:08
After the barely-listenable mess that was Killing Is My Business in its original form, you could be forgiven for considering Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? to be Megadeth's real debut. Production is obviously much better, although still kinda raw, with a weird, trebly guitar sound that would make learning these songs by ear extremely difficult. Regardless, some of the band's best songs hail from this disc, includingi each of the first five songs. "Peace Sells," the song, iis a truly timeless metal classic with its indelible bassline (MTV News used to use this in its outro" "You! Here it"--dum-da-dum-dum-dum-diddit--"FIRST!"). "The only weak spot is "I Ain't Superstitious," which just sounds tossed-off and sloppy. Thrash band covers old blues song--a bad fit.
