A great album! A megadeth mission statement o ntis one the havent rocked like this in years man. Just an all out assault on the songs and guitar work . Jimmy Degrasso holds in own in the drum dept. while Al Pitrelli shreds up some catchy fretwork. And of course Dave is Dave. Great album reminicent of the old Megadeth we have come to love.

A more determined Megadeth on this outing. A welcome return to form. Al Pitrelli is just beside himself in his playing. Dave is in rare form. Great album.

I was disgusted with the direction Dave took with this one. While it isn't "Risk" it isn't classic Megadeth & was there really a need for "Return to the Hanger?!" I must admit there are two standout track on this one though, Recipe for Hate... & Dread & the Fugitive Mind. The latter can also be found on the best of record, so in essence you're paying for one good track! SIXXSWINE 11.25.04

This CD takes a beating from reviewers, but it's a lot better than people give it credit for. Al Pitrelli does a fine job handling the leads here. However, it's Dave's snake-like snarl and his mean guitar riffs that win over on this disc. Perhaps not Mustaine's finest CD, but far from the bomb most people say it is.

From: GLAM FAN Date: April 20, 2005 at 2:43
A much heavier album that risk,the world needs a hero is megadeth's best album since countdown to extintion. While it's not exactly the sound of rust in peace or peace sells,but at least it got some element of both. Return to hagar is one of the hightlight(sounds like hangar 18). The vocal of mustaine sounds fresher than ever and his ongwrting and lyrics showed. But the downwards:No marty friedman. While al,i think,is a capable guitarist but no one can ever fill the shoes of marty.

But still,a fine album. Ratings:8/10

From: Slayer666 Date: May 21, 2007 at 18:53
Awesome fucking album. 10/10

From: pie75 Date: September 7, 2010 at 8:52
from the first song you knew megadeth were back on the right path their best work since countdown al pitrelli while he's no marty he's an inspired choice love disconect,the title track,moto phsyco,100 times goodbye,promise and dread and the fugitive mind return to hangar was unnecesary and when was highly stupid but the rest is fine stuff indeed

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 1, 2014 at 23:03
Dave Mustaine knew he'd fucked up big-time with Risk. He had finally done it: he became Metallica, although not in the way he had always wanted to be. And so began the "going back to our roots" dispatches from the studio, which got people amped up, hoping for Rust In Peace II. Of course, that never materialized, despite a rehashing of "Hangar 18." The result was an album that tried to make all the right noises, but for the most part didn't succeed. It was a step in the right direction though, and was the beginning of Megadeth clawing their way out of the hole they'd been digging for the better part of a decade.
