Don't Risk buying this..It is Modern Alt Metal..It is Better than Metallica's St Craper.. Too mnay drugs I guess! 4/10.

From: MetalSmasher86 Date: November 28, 2004 at 2:24
Track 1 is actually pretty good, but it goes completely downhill after that. Sucks overall.

From: sux this Date: November 29, 2004 at 23:16
they went for a more acessible sound with this it worked they got played on mtv the video breadline in regular rotation is that good brealine is a good song dave is middle aged now he cant write the same stuff he did when he was 20 that would be selling out posing muscians have to grow or burn out

Megadeth's weakest and most melodic album to date,risk is another of megadeth's attempt for mass market acceptance which they have achived well(very well,i might add). But by doing so,they have lost much of their 'original' follower. So avoid this album at all cost unless you are a fan hard rock or straight ahead metal(iron maiden,danzig) fan. Ratings:4/10

They did sell out on this album but it still is very good.

From: edwithmj Date: January 24, 2010 at 22:19
Wanderlust and Breadline are excellent songs with the rest being hit and miss. Enter The Arena and I'll Be There sound almost nothing like Megadeth.

oh my good i payed full price for this when it first came out without listening to it and when i put it on i was horrified it pains me to say this but i could listen to load and reload before this and i realy dislike them of the album crush em was vaidly ok and bread line listenable but that's it thank god they were better what a poor way for marty to depart

I will have to say this is Megadeth's only sub-par disc, Metallica had three. Megadeth, only this one. Not as good as their previous or later efforts, but not as bad as Metallica's Load of Shit, Blow Loads or St. Craper.

So we'd just spent half a decade telling ourselves everything was still okay with Megadeth. We could do thiss because the decline was gradual enough, through three albums, that we could pretend not to notice the band stumbling. And then Rissk came out, and it was impossible to ignore any longer. I actually think Risk is worse than either of Metallica's Load albums. First single "Crush 'Em" took forever to get going, but was okay overall, aside from being a cheesy wrestling song. So we listened to that alll summer and tried to make ourselves like it, and then the album actually came out. Ugh! Not good. Just ... not good. First couple songs are okay, but then you hit the dreadful "Breadline" (which was actually a single) and the disc took a hard turn into the woods and never came out. I was ableto listen all the way through only a few times. The songs mostly aren't heavy, have almost no hooks, and Dave can't sing in the traditional sense of the word. Despite his occasional defense, I thi

... think this is one even Dave would rather forget.

Probably one of the worst Megadeth's releases(there are other ones but let's focus only on this)...IMO the album is not that terrible but for hardcore fans of the band this could sound softer than any One Direction record ...my "faves" are tracks 1,2,5 & 7...a commercial album in here a 100%...70/100
