Many music fans consider this to be one of thrash/speed metal's best records. "Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?" is doubtlessly Dave Mustaine's first masterpiece. It is a classic, standard-setting album which is one of the best and most powerful and contagious releases of the 1980's (right up there with Metallica's "Master of Puppets" and Slayer's "Reign In Blood"). The famous album opener, "Wake Up Dead," has a pair of guitar solos, as well as a couple tempo changes, and "The Conjuring" is a catchy song, with fast, propulsive riffs. Next, the title track has more catchy, chugging guitars, several small solos, and an infectious sing-along near the end. "Devil's Island" and "Good Mourning/Black Friday" both have tasty solos (and "Good Mourning" also has a very catchy chorus and almost buzzsaw riffs). From front to back, this C.D. is very memorable and nearly perfect. It's a must own for every thrash and metal collection. The bottom line is, if you like heavy metal, why wouldn't you buy "Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?"? Plus, I strongly recommend getting the remastered version of this C.D. The four remixes at the end aren't anything especially interesting, but, overall, the album's sound quality is MUCH improved.

The remixed and remastered Megadeth albums released in 2004 aren't your typical cash-ins. They're improvements over the originals: group leader Dave Mustaine did the remixing and remastering himself, making especially significant revisions to the earlier albums, and he includes insightful liner notes for each reissue, including track-by-track commentary for the bonus tracks, as well as lyrics and period photos. Along with So Far, So Good...So What! and Rust in Peace, Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? was most due for such a reissue as this. Originally recorded in early 1986 on a modest budget, this landmark album didn't boast pristine production, yet it was rightfully crowned a landmark release and remains one (one of the most influential metal albums of its decade and certainly one of the few truly definitive thrash albums, right up there with Metallica's Master of Puppets and Slayer's Reign in Blood, both of which were also released in 1986). Mustaine's liner notes help shed some light on the wondrous events surrounding this storied album, the band's second and the final one featuring guitarist Chris Poland and drummer Gar Samuelson. The four bonus tracks are alternate mixes by Randy Burns and aren't too remarkably novel in contrast. Peace Sells was so key to the development of metal and so influential to the then burgeoning thrash movement, it's a real godsend to have it remixed and remastered like this. Such treatment makes an already essential album for metal fans all the more essential. Beyond doubt, if you're going to own one and only one Megadeth album, make it this one. And if you've always wondered why Megadeth were so followed, here's a chief reason. The few albums that followed Peace Sells are damn good also, but this is the one that started it all. It's the foundation of the band's legacy and one of the best beginning to end metal albums ever.

This is the first cd I listened to out of my set of remasters I purchased. This is the cd that put Megadeth on the map so to speak. Dave Mustaine did a fabulous job on this cd. It just sounds incredible! I remember when this cd first came out when I was 16 and in high school. Someone I knew at school lent me his copy and I thought it was an awesome CD.

The three best tracks are "Wake Up Dead, The Conjuring and Peace Sells." However, actually all the tracks are good. There isn't a bad song on this cd. The 4 bonus tracks are interesting to listen to as well.

The cd booklet includes a new commentary by Dave Mustaine about "Peace Sells But Who's Buying/" It also features some cool photographs of the band in 1986.

Long time and new Megadeth fans will be pleased. I'm glad Dave Mustaine is back to playing in top form. I can't wait until the new Megadeth record "The System Has Failed" comes out on Sept. 14, 2004. I'm also looking forward to seeing them live in the upcoming tour.

In 1986, when Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? came out, most of the world was either listening to the new wave techno MTV bands or they were partying with hair-metal bands like Motley Crue and Ratt and Poison and the likes. Underground metal was starting to make some noise and die-hards were spotted at school wearing t-shirts from bands like Slayer and Exodus and Anthrax and Megadeth and Metallica and such.

Born of the vengeance of Dave Mustaine and his willingness to to anything necessary to show up his former bandmates in Metallica, Megadeth was born. The fastest, thrashiest, most obnoxious speed metal band that ever lived was what Mustaine was going for. But he wanted to have talent around him, too. Not only was Megadeth thrashing it up, they were techinically good musicians. Chris Poland on guitar and Gar Samuelson on drums round out Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson and Megadeth head into their second album.

"Wake Up Dead" a Megadeth staple tune and a certified rocker. The lyrics are a little juvenille now that we can look back, but otherwise a very cool tune. "The Conjuring" musically stunning, lyrically trying to be evil in the Mercyful Fate Satan-is-good kind of sense, except he's asking us to cojure Dave Mustaine instead of Lucifer. Kinda freaky cool. "Peace Sells" one of the greatest metal tunes ever written and of course Megadeth's most recognized tune. The bass line was the music for MTV news forever. Great song! Very anti-establishment! Sit up and notice me! This was Megadeth extreme! "Devils Island" a hard rocking tune based on the classic novel Papillon, showed us Mustaine was literate as well as pissed off. Great.
