Still heavy but lacking much of the speed and aggression of the past, "Youthanasia" was another commercial success for Megadeth. I actually really like this album. It's melodic metal with a slightly pop sheen. "Train of Consequences" is an excellent Megadeth composition. "Victory" is a cool song as the lyrics are made up of no less than 20 other Megadeth song titles. "Addicted to Choas" is a crushing, heavy song as is "Black Curtains." I think this album went platinum plus.

This could be Megadeth at their best. A great album top to bottom.

From: RR-Finland Date: September 18, 2003 at 7:05
This is very great record. Polished and well produced. I didnīt like this immediately when it was out, but after a few good listen, I fell in love. Tracks 3-8,10 are my favourites. Victory is funny cross-section of Megadethīs history.

From: RR-Finland Date: September 18, 2003 at 7:11
Somebody please add Marty Friedman/Jason Beckerīs CACOPHONY "Speed Metal Symphony" and "Go Off" releases here in Brutal Metal. Also Metallicaīs albums from "Kill īem All" to "Black album" wanted.

From: Zze Date: October 21, 2003 at 5:11
I have always considered Megadeth to have a sound somewhat between Classic Heavy Metal and Real Thrash Metal ( my definition of Speed Metal ) but on this recorded they pratically abandoned anything resembling " Thrash" ( i.e songs like Take no prisioners ) and get fully on their Classic Heavy Metal side .fact is, this is still a great album, altoguth lacking some aggressivity of previous records, but this is what we could call a "mature" Megadeth

From: francisco Date: January 1, 2004 at 15:05
I liked this album then, and I still do. Sounds kind of european, very original lyrics(even a french chorus)I agree itīs more clasic heavy metal than trash.

From: Shannon Date: June 20, 2004 at 0:59
I like this album, but it in no way resembles "speed-metal" and sounds kinda commercialized.

From: Big Papa K Date: July 7, 2004 at 18:32
This cotinues the sound of the last album, but slows it up a little. The problem here is that while nothing is bad here, nothing besides "Train Of Consequences" and "A Tout Le Monde" stick out. 6/10

From: sarah_tutto_ben Date: July 14, 2004 at 19:11
this is megadeth at their finest, quality indeed, their best since 'killing is my business' check out friedman on 'keep it in the family' or mustaine's voice on 'a tout le monte' excellent cd.

From: Psychotron502 Date: August 4, 2004 at 20:07
may not be as fast as old megadeth, but holy shit, Dave will always be the man. the songwriting is great, marty friedman was still kicking ass. Victory......holy shit, the guitar in that is to die for. and the softer tracks are definately awesome IE addicted to chaos and a tout le monde. definately a good album to learn on guitar. such memorable hits are on this album. and the songs(like any megadeth song) are very meaningful. and they have good messeges. i give it a 10.

From: vic Date: September 8, 2004 at 17:51
A very good and creative album but not MEGADETH at their best.

From: RATTLEHEAD Date: September 19, 2004 at 15:35
The System Has Failed!!!!!

From: GLAM FAN Date: April 20, 2005 at 2:23
Hmm..is this the same band that produce peace sells and rust in peace? Obviously,this album was 7 words-sellout! The music here is lots more accessible and songs like family tree and victory are made for radio friendly production. The album here loses lots of progressive and thrash elements that once made megaeth the finest(along iwth metallica)thrash metal band. All that are left are more classic straightahead heavy metal. Train of consequences are the only real worthy song. Disappointing. 6/10

From: starvin marvin Date: July 1, 2005 at 14:07
im sick to death of some of you fucking fools with your "sellouts" and "commercialized". thats a load of bullshit, there are some great tracks in here, a tout le monde and train of consequences are great songs. if you havent heard any megadeth stuff, dont listen to some of these people, they are a great band! tracks like symphony of distruction, hanger 18 and of mice and men have assured this! rock on megadeth!

From: Slayer666 Date: May 21, 2007 at 18:56
HORRIBLE FUCKING ALBUM. I hate this cd so much. It just isn't cool and the cover is stupid as shit.

From: pie75 Date: September 7, 2010 at 8:28
well slayer 666 if i'm not mistaken slayers divine intervention was out round about this time too and let me tell you that's a horrible fucking album this in comparison shits on that best songs here are reckoning day,train of concequences,addicted to chaos,blood of heros,black curtains,victory and the stand out track the awsome toute le monde still have the evolver video about the making of this album and you love it even more after watching it

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 29, 2014 at 23:18
One of the most commercial Megadeth releases ever!!!...i'm not a big fan of them but as a general music culture lover i have some of the band's releases and this one for me is what we can call a "happy metal" one...best tracks for me are 1,2,5,7,10,11 & 12...quite enjoyable to be honest with you all .88/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 1, 2014 at 22:35
Man, you thought the drum sound on Countdown To Extinction sucked? It's even worse on the follow-up, Menza sounding like he's using a rack tom as a snare. The album as a whole tries to dupicate the style--and success--of Countdown, but with less satisfying results, although the first half is mostly good. There's justu some slow, hookless tunes later on that drag the album down, and an overall lack of the kind of fire and aggression that even Countdown still possessed. Thrashmetal as Mustaine and Co. knew (invented) it was long dead by '94, and the guys seemed to be feeling their way along in a post-Cobain world. Not a flop by any means, but still somewhat disappointing. Best songs are "Reckoning Day," "Train Of Consequences," "A Tout Le Monde," "The Killing Road' and the fun, self-congratulatory "Victory."
