Editorial Reviews

For a heavy metal band that's been around for nearly three decades, selling more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including 11 Grammy® nominations, scoring five consecutive platinum albums including 1992's two-million-selling Countdown to Extinction--Megadeth's founder, leader and primal guitar-slinger and lyricist Dave Mustaine feels the best is yet to come.

Format:MP3 Music
If you've heard the first single off this album, "Super Collider," chances are you're probably feeling it's lacking. It sounds like it came straight off the Risk or The World Needs a Hero, two albums notorious for having very mixed reviews and receptions. Personally, I didn't mind those albums, and the first single is OK. It's not thrash, though.

Let's face it - the thrash bands of decades past are not what they once were. But despite the revolving door of Megadeth musicians, Dave Mustaine and company have managed to release new music pretty often, and that's a blessing in the grand scheme of things. I'm happy to have Super Collider even though it pales in comparison to albums of old. David Ellefson is back for another album (welcome back, Junior!), and that's something to be psyched about. He has writing credit for the opening song, "Kingmaker," a nice thrash appetizer to set up the rest of the album... which is hit and miss.

If you pay attention to other musicians' interviews and Tweets, some of them have harsh criticisms about this new stuff (Oderus Urungus of GWAR is pretty obnoxious). There are some really bright spots, however. "Burn" is a killer song and Dave Mustaine sounds great. Probably my favorite on the album. "Don't Turn Your Back" begins with some classic rock jamming and then the riffage really gets rolling. And the bass, oh, the bass. I don't understand why the song is so far down in the track listing, though. Move this one to the top please!

David Draiman has small parts in "Dance In The Rain" and "Forget To Remember." Ever read the Dr.

4.0 out of 5 stars Proper follow up to The System Has Failed June 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I'm 37 which puts me in the age range most of you reading this probably are. I really like Megadeth a lot with some serious love towards certain albums but, let's face it, they flip flop from trying to appeal to two different groups of fans (the thrash purists that insist upon a spiritual successor to Rust In Peace and those that actually dig the tunes with vocal melodies).

Count me in the latter group. Of course I loved the Marty/Menza years but have felt that their post-Menza/Friedman era albums have tried too hard to impress the thrash purists (with exception to the phenomenal The System Has Failed which was a Mustaine solo album re-branded Megadeth at the last minute when he reactivated the band after a short hiatus).

Is the title of Supercollider hokey? Yes. Are the lyrics to the title track hokey? Yep. Is it catchy? Yes it is. It's fun in the same vein as "Crush 'Em" was off of Risk which I actually liked (I can't fault Dave for trying something different to see what happens) (Devin Townsend pulls it off every album and he's generally praised for it).

Are there actual heavy tracks on the album or is it radio friendly? There's a bit of everything on here. I bought the Best Buy version with 14 tracks (2 bonus and Countdown live). I'm really happy with this album. I still like The System Has Failed best but this one is growing on me fast.

I'm giving it 4 stars because it fits in the same writing style we saw on Youthanasia, Cryptic Writings and The System Has Failed. If you dug those you'll find this one a fitting complement. There are a couple of tracks that just piddle around doing diddly squat (Burn, Off The Edge) but even those albums have some tracks that feel like filler.

Highly recommended unless you can't appreciate melody.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Album that shows the band still has talent June 16, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Thirty years after the forming of Megadeth, the band still putting out quality albums, and Super Collider is a testament to this. The band has taken a different approach to the song writing, but pays tribute to their older catalog with some catchy riffs, some amazing thrash solos, and some poignant political lyrics. The album is definitely more radio friendly than most of their earlier records, but that does not take away from the album as a whole. David Ellefson and Shawn Drover's rhythm throughout the album complement Chris Broderick and Dave Mustaine's guitar licks. I, personally, find Shawn Drover the most under rated drummer in heavy metal. The inclusion of David Draiman on "Dance in the Rain" is also an amazing plus. I wish he was included in more of the songs. It's also good to see the band going back to their roots, providing a cover song, with Thin Lizzy's "Cold Sweat", one of my favorites from Lizzy's collection. While the lyrics in most of the tracks have a lot of meaning, Dave Mustaine's voice doesn't hold like it used to. In my opinion, he would be smart to find a front man for Megadeth and stick to playing the guitar.

Overall, I was happy with the release, and if the band continues to make albums, I will continue to buy them. Every time Megadeth releases an album, it gets compared to "Peace Sells, But Who's Buying" and "Rust in Peace", which I don't find fair. The band is not the same. Much of the anger which drove the writing of those early albums has subsided in Dave Mustaine, and I find it a breath of fresh air to see he has grown as a person and as a musician. Is this my favorite Megadeth Album? No. Is it my least favorite? No. I think it's a solidly produced, written, and performed record and I listen to it quite a bit.

How does Megadeth sound this time around?
I agree- The 2 new songs I heard were refreshing. Not everything has to be super fast and heavy-and believe me-I LOVE super fast and heavy -But there needs to be some art and expression to the music too. Cheers To Dave and the gang. P.S. RIP Jeff Hanneman.

Can we lay the idea of Megadeth "evolving" to rest?
Completely agree. It's like when a band gets softer, not necessarily talking just Megadeth but any metal or hard rock band, the defenders suddenly say "growth," or "evolution". Did they ever consider maybe a band is making a sellout record? Risk for example for a multitude... Read more
