I will say up front that I did not like the 2004 remixed & remastered editions of the Megadeth catalog. I strongly feel that classics should not be tinkered with when it comes to remixing, etc. This edition however, is a real treat for the die-hard Megadeth fan. Nothing more can be said about the importance of this album and its contributions to Thrash at the time in 1986. It is a masterpiece right next to Master of Puppets. So here is my take on the 2011 deluxe anniversary edition. The remastering job in my opinion is fantastic. I have studio quality speakers and this remaster truly sounds great. Now, I know some hate the whole "loudness" wars caused from remastering but in my opinion this remaster does not suffer from that. The album is louder but the music is also extremely crisp and clear. You can hear every note played and I think this is the definitive edition of this album. Disc 2: This is a live cd from 1987. The quality is similar to that of a soundboard bootleg from 1987. The sound is fair on the live cd but remember that most "live" cds are faked in the studio - this is not! It is simply awesome to hear versions of "Looking Down the Cross" & "Last Rites/Loved To Death" on here. This disc is really for the diehards though. I absolutely love it. The band sounds pissed off and full of anger which translates to a great performance. I definitely recommend this release to you Megadeth fans wondering if you should buy this 3rd cd version. Pick it up!

1986, What a year for metal. Arguably at it's peak at the time in the music industry, many of thrash's best bands were releasing their best/now classic albums. Master of Puppets, Reign in Blood, Pleasure to Kill, Darkness Descends, and of course Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? Well, as time would tell you, alot of people did buy it, and rightfully forseeing Megadeth as one of the top metal bands in the world. This is the album that did it for me, for the longest time not really being able to get into Megadeth's music, no matter how hard friends or myself tried, nothing would stick. But one day, getting this album and listening to the first 30 seconds of Wake Up Dead, as Lars points out in the liner notes, it woke me up to the amazing, sheer brutal-vinegar'n'piss of Megadeth. From there, I was hooked, and still am to this very day. Something that makes an album great is the vibe it creates each time you listen to it, only the best of the best of albums can do this and Peace Sells is one of them. Everytime I listen to it, no matter what I can feel it, and that's just how powerful this record is. When Dave Remixed the Megadeth back catalog back in 2004, this album in particular lost that 'vibe' due to the remixing. Yes, technically speaking perhaps it is sonically better sounding for the instruments, but that's not what Megadeth is about. It's about making a statement, attitude, aggression, pissed, and everything that is pure in metal. This package brings back the fantastic original mixed album, remastered gloriously despite what anyone says, the tape hiss has been removed, leaving crystal clarity between songs. The acoustic stringed parts never sounded better, as with Junior's bass. Everything sounds like it should and it kills!Read more ›

I'd lost my original copy of this album and before purchasing this 25th Anniversay edition I don't think I'd listened to 'Peace Sells' since the early 90's - for some reason the only Megadeth album that survived back from those days was `Rust in Peace' which I'd revisit on occasion. In 2004 I purchased `The System has Failed' out of the blue and quite enjoyed it, more recently I followed that up with `End Game' which left me a bit cold and sent me running off to purchase a new copy of `Countdown to Extinction' to try and get my fix - much to my surprise it has stood up to the test of time reasonably well. Slowly but surely Megadeth had come back into the reckoning as one of my favourite bands from my formative years so when I saw this reissue I felt strongly compelled to check it out. I'm glad I did.

This release has five, possibly six, absolute `deth classics. `Wake Up Dead' is a great opener, the genius first line of Mustaine vocals come bursting out of the traps after about 1.3 seconds! Just try and work out how many different riffs are squeezed into the economical 3:40 running time. `The Conjuring' allows Dave to camp it up nicely although Megadeth always came across quite tongue in cheek with the Satanist and black magic stuff, real world politics have always been Mustaine's true forte. Musically it's a beast - a rival to Metallica's epic track `Master of Puppets' released the same year. `Peace Sells' skips in on another standout intro, this time a lone bass line, soon joined by another no nonsense opening lyric that can't help but win you over instantly. Irreverent and funny, this is one of the band's best ever near-pop moments.

Incredible intros seems to be a theme with this album and the best of the lot opens `Devil's Island' - perhaps the definitive metal intro.

Remastered and remastered right. The original mix is back on this issue and that is a good thing!
The 2004 remaster and REMIX was OK but something seemed a little off about it, but is still interesting to hear a different take on it.
The live bootleg on this issue is great, it makes you kinda feel like your in some sweaty little club hearing them back in the day. Highly recommended far any metal fan.

This looks like a great release after all, at first I thought "Another remaster? C'mon Dave!", but the more I looked into it I realized how worthwhile this is. This is the first remastered version of the ORIGINAL master tape of Peace Sells, not the 2004 jun..I mean remix. Also includes... Read More
