Not counting Megadeth's actual newest effort, Thirteen, what order of effort would you rate the Big Four band's newest efforts.
Slayer's World Painted Blood, Metallica's Death Magnetic, Megadeth's Endgame, and Anthrax's Worship Music.
Do not compare the band's to each other cause then everyone would obviously pick Slayer at the top, but rather compare each band to their own previous works. (Act like the other bands don't exist when making your judgement on effort)
I'll eventually post my own judgements later in the post.
Let me know what you all think and why.
Feedback much appreciated!

Why are you not counting Thirteen? I actually would put Slayer at the bottom of that list, no offense to Slayer fans I just don't really like them. Although you can't really beat Raining Blood's opening riffs, awesome.

My order; Thirteen, Worship Music, Endgame, Death Magnetic, World Painted Blood.

thirteen is like a farewell album with songs previously released as bonus tracks on remastered albums. It's an extremely half-@ss effort on Megadeth's part and should not be part of the Big Four newest efforts discussion. You are putting Thirteen as a better effort than Endgame?

Thirteen is by no means a half ass effort...New World Order and Millennium of the Blind are old demos but fit perfectly well with the album...not to mention the rest of the cd is killer. But no, i would not put it above Endgame. Endgame: 9.5, Thirteen: 8

Oh boo freakin' hoo. So they took some old demos and completed them. Who cares? Personally as a fan who likes to have every good song, and doesn't want to buy an album twice just for a bonus demo, I'm happy with what they did. The songs all work well together. Now if you don't like the album because you don't like it, then fine, but complaining because they put some songs not availible on a regular album on here, and completed them is just a weak argument.

And, yes. I'm putting this one ahead of Endgame, because the songs to me are better. I'm not taking anything away from Endgame. that is a good album, but if I were ranking the latest output by the big 4, that's how I'd rate them. Simply my opinion. Everybody has one, and that's perfectly fine.

I don't think it's a terrible album, but you honestly think it's better than Endgame? Your opinion anyway, but I'm sure people will be saying something if Anthrax, Metallica, or Slayer done something similar like that.

i like 13 a whole lot but to me endgame was a little more complete...id say 13 and united abominations are about the same level to me (which is a very high level), and Endgame is one notch above

I agree with A-bomb. While I like Thirteen (I like all of Megadeth's records) but the entire record sounds like unreleased leftover tracks from all their previous albums. Is this a farewell album? Certainly sounds like it to me. Does that mean it's a bad record? No. It totally rocks and I recommend it to any fan of Megadeth.
