Editorial Reviews

Megadeth is easily one of the most recognized and culturally significant names in hard rock music for the past three decades, are pleased to announce the release of their thirteenth album, titled TH1RT3EN. Dave Mustaine is incredibly proud of the music put forth on the recording, saying, "This record is the culmination of my work over the 13 records I recorded. There are moments on TH1RT3EN that capture my every emotion, and other moments where I am releasing feelings I never knew existed! My proudest moments of my musical career are captured on TH1RT3EN." TH1RT3EN also marks the recorded return of bassist Dave Ellefson who was part of the band's classic lineup from 1983 to 2002. In a move that delighted the band's legion of diehards, Ellefson returned to performing live with Megadeth in early 2010 and has remained a fixture on the stage ever since. This is the first time Ellefson has played on a Megadeth record since 2002's Rude Awakening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Megadeth revisited November 4, 2011
By Gus
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the best musical surprise I have witnessed in the past 5 years. The album is a cross between the old Megadeth feel with a modern polished sound, which forms a perfect mesh. For full disclosure, I don't think there are any bad Megadeth albums out there, but in the post Youthanasia era there has been a clear drop in the level of authentic Mustaine emotion. The whole album has this perfect rolling sound without any breaks or low points. It is rare that I like an album on the first attempt, but this has been the case here. If you are a weathered Deth enthusiast, you obviously need to hear the final versions of New World Order and Millenium of the Blind. If you are interested in the best of what's new, I'd recommend Black Swan and Sudden Death. I can't wait for my next road trip...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Metal records of the year!! November 1, 2011
By Jacob
Format:Audio CD
Megadeth's Th1rt3en is fantastic in all areas. It rivals 2011 releases such as Anthrax's "Worship Music" and Five Finger Death Punch's "American Capitalist." Dave Mustaine is on top of his game throughout the record and his lyrical content is better than ever. Some of his lyrics really hit home considering the current state of the American psyche. If you are a Megadeth fan, you will enjoy this. If you are a hard rock/metal fan or a newer fan of Megadeth you will definitely enjoy this latest record! Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic November 6, 2011
Format:Audio CD
All the haters can kiss my ass.I think this is a great album.I dont want another Peace sells or Rust in peace.Part of the thrill and enjoyment of being a fan is seeing what direction a band will go.Stop comparing every new album with an old one.Enjoy the new material and be thankful there are still a few bands that have been around for over 20 years that still put in the effort and have a passion for what they do.Megadeth,Iron Maiden,AC/DC,Anthrax,Metallica-i have never felt cheated on any album they've made.Personally,i can't stand most of the crap being put out by the newer groups and I hate to think of the future of music when the older bands finally call it a career.

First things first I'm really sick of people who review ablums after listening to them once or twice. Judging an album after one or two listens is just not a valued opinion from my stand point. That being said for those who rated this ablum poorly. My first couple listens where not bliss to my ears. I too thought what is this ??? but its funny. Just like ENDGAME or any other metal album that is fast paced you can't just soak it all in with a couple listens. I found myself skipping between tracks at first. But after I gave it about 20-30 listens which is my standard to review an album this album not only beats ENGAME but it just may be in their top 3 albums ever !! Behind.......... well you already know.

As for the idea of completing demos to add to perhaps get the track total up to Thirteen to correspond with the title I read into the reviews. I thought well thats not cool at all they need to finish demos to add to the album. However I do own the YOUTHANASIA but I never dug into those demos becuase I was not a big fan of that particular album (sorry fellow Deth heads). But after listening to the new finished songs they stand out as some of the best on the album I also went back and listened to the demos to compare and contrast. The demos of course sounded a bit more raw on the guitar which was a grimmier sound but the finished tracks compositions far exceed the demos.

1. SUDDEN DEATH _______ Well I have never played the guitar hero game with this song on it. It sounds as though they tried to make it a tough song with all of the solos. This is a slightly above average song not their best opening song but still good nontheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME YET AGAIN December 1, 2011
By jimthar
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
the first time i heard this album, i have to say, i was kinda disappointed. but those were only cursory listens. after buying the album and sitting down and really listening to it, i have to say it's a great album. though i do still like ENDGAME better, i'll say that this is a great addition to the megadeth that started it's run of great albums with 'the system has failed'. this album has a lot of elements from albums like 'countdown' and 'youthanasia' in it, and at the same time has some great ass kickers too. there are only a few songs that really dont do it for me. the biggest example of this being 'guns, drugs, and money'. i just cant dig that song. the rest however is great in it's own way. a lot of people are complaining about the inclusion of older songs like 'millennium of the blind' and 'new world order' but i think they sound great here. finally fleshed out into full songs. for a band that had only 2 months to write and record a full album, i think they did a helluva job. if you're a fan of the 'countdown' or 'youth' albums, i think you'll like this one just fine. really looking forward to album #14, when they reteam with andy sneap now. should be another killer.

3.0 out of 5 stars LISTEN TO ME, RATTLEHEADS!! November 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've been a hardcore Megadeth fan for two decades now and being a singer/lyricist/guitarist have been greatly influenced by them and tend to dissect each album differently than everyone else I know. That being said, I knew not to expect "Endgame 2", but this truly surprised me. Dave scaled the leads on this album WAAAAY back, choosing instead to focus on the rhythm primarily, then riffs, which in and of itself wouldn't be so bad if most of it didn't sound like he was blatantly ripping himself off. Doesn't help that Shawn & David (welcome back) only give slightly better than mediocre performances. Don't get me wrong, the axework is superb, but great playing doesn't necessarily make a great song.

The lyrics are exactly what you've come to expect, but decidedly more "World Needs A Hero" - "United Abominations" than "Endgame" quality. Some are well crafted gold, some are unapologetic expressions from the heart and some just seem settled upon as, "good enough, let's move on". A little disappointing, at least from a lyricist's standpoint. I do like the way the basic structure of each track varies, something that I try to do with my own stuff and showing that the musician wants that song to be unique unto itself, if not the best that it can be. Verse, chorus, repeat, solo, etc. get's stale and more artists should care about changing it up. The fact that it's done so well here is an example of the caliber of musicianship that has come to define Mustaine. Respect.

As other reviewers have said, some of the tracks are re-hashes of '90's era ideas & demos, some of which I think were added just to get the song count up to 13. "New World Order" & "Millenium Of The Blind" were both on the 2004 re-release of "Youthanasia", the former of which I've been listening to for over a decade.
