Now this is what Metal is all about!!Word to Metallica.. Listen to this,this is how its done!!No crap songs,just good fuckin metal!!Great solos,great riffs....Man this is one the money!!!9.5/10!!

Best album by Megadeth since Rust in Peace. Every song is a winner. That arm problem that Mustaine had may have been the best thing that ever happened to Megadeth. Rock On!

From: Scott Date: February 16, 2005 at 9:05
I like this one. It's a nice mixture of "Rust in Peace" and "Youthanasia". A nice comeback disc from Mustaine & Co. Favorite track is "Kick the Chair".

Damn,is this the 80's? No,it's the year 2004! But this album don't look so. No it still ain't as good as peace sells but it's very close. Not much filler on thsi album and it's more thrash/speed metal(which dave and co. should be doing) than your average classic metal. Glad to have chris poland(whom i consider very underrated and almost as good as marty) back. Kick the chair,back in the day and my kingdom(which sounds very power metal) are the top tracks here.

From: GLAM FAN Date: April 20, 2005 at 2:54
This album shows how metallica and the rest of the other metal band of 2004 how it should be done. easily the best metal album of 2004. A MASTERpiece by 2004 standard.

From: ed Date: May 12, 2005 at 16:51
This is a super cd! Some bands try to change and create something new that dissapoint some fans. But not this one!!! As I heard, not Rust In Peace, but close enough!!!!!

From: Dean Date: May 16, 2005 at 17:25
Awesome cd-blows the fuck out of St. Anger.

From: starvinmarvin Date: May 25, 2005 at 10:57
i never thought i would hear myself say this, but after st. anger, metallica, this is how its done! rock on megadeth!

From: dave mustaine Date: May 29, 2005 at 22:02

From: Metal T Date: May 30, 2005 at 18:33
Not a bad disc .... but Exodus' Tempo Of The Damned blows it away big time !!

From: artur Date: August 19, 2006 at 9:14
Back to classic sound of Megadeth !

From: Slayer666 Date: May 21, 2007 at 18:52
This is a sweet album. Way better than the gay United Abominations album.

From: pie75 Date: September 7, 2010 at 8:56
this was megadeth showing some of that glorious past nice to see chris poland on this after all these years blackmail of the universe,kick the chair and mice and men are just fine stuff

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 29, 2014 at 15:44
I've never been a fan of them but as a general culture thing i have material of them(quite a lot to be honest)...this album showed a kinda of a modern feel in the songs that are nothing compared with the band's early stuff..."Back In The Day" is the one i liked...tracks 2,3,8 & 10 are also acceptable...80/100
