5.0 out of 5 stars Megadeth's Best And Most Atmospheric Album. February 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ever notice how a lot of metal fans tend to judge music solely by how accessable it is rather than how good it is? This is what happened when Megadeth released Youthanasia back in 1994. While the album met with strong reviews and very strong sales overall, some fans were unnecessarely disappointed when they found out how soft and moody it was compared to earlier releases.
But if you listen to Youthanasia side-by-side with Countdown To Extinction, you'll notice Youth really isn't much softer nor more "pop-like." In fact, Youthanasia (in a lot of ways) has a decidely less commercial sound than Countdown. Probably because the guitars on Youth are decidedly heavier (remember how unusually plain they sometimes sounded on Countdown), and the mood quite a bit darker (don't expect all the sarcastic jokes and humor of Countdown here, ladies and gentlemen).
And it isn't as if Megadeth was trying to cash in on what was popular back in late 1994. This album doesn't sound grungey nor alternative. Rather, it seems stuck somewhere between a heavy rock album and a heavy metal album. True, it does have the occasionally pop-like beats of a rock album, but a lot of solos are just as grinding as you would expect from a metal album, riffs just as heavy, and song themes just as disturbing. Disturbing enough that MTV actually refused to play the video for A Tout Le Monde because of what the song was dealing with (suicide). How's that for a sell out?
As for the actual songs, I can't really think of any that I didn't like. Train of Consequences is definitely the album's highlight with its excellent drumming, catchy riff, and great solo. Addicted to Chaos has one of the most beautiful solos Megadeth has ever done, and one of the most powerful choruses they'd ever done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Stunner From The Megadeth Crew! March 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some people viewed the departure of Megadeth's roots in Speed/Thrash Metal as a sign of selling out much in the same way they viewed Metallica's rise to success. Megadeth invented Thrash along with Anthrax, Metallica & Slayer and they abandoned it! We should get the rope, right? No. Just like Metallica, Megadeth started to finally grow up. Do you want to sit around and listen to a bunch of fifty year-old millionaires bitching about the establishment and the failures of society and blah-de-blah? Do you? You can if you want, but youthful anger is hard to maintain, especially when you are moderately to staggeringly rich. Sorry to tell you this, but all bands, and I say ALL bands, are in the music business to sell albums. That's where the money is. Chicks? Maybe. Creative fusion. Certainly. Megadeth is no different. Mustaine is no longer shooting heroin and going on drinking binges, he's married with children. People change. So do their musical tastes. Is Youthanasia un-metal. F*ck no! It still rocks as hard as anything out here.

"Reckoning Day" Metal, brutal, kick-you-in-the-teeth. A great hate-my-old-girlfriend/ex-wife song. A classic. "Train Of Consequences" another certified rocker. Great lyrics and great riffs. "Addicted To Chaos" a slower, more moody outing. Still very kewel. Lyrically deep. Megadeth has grown up indeed. "A Tout Le Monde" one of Mustaine's greatest songs. There's feeling in there, as opposed to just shredding your face off with a non-sensical diatribe to anger and misery. Greatness! "Elysian Fields" on of my all-time favorites. This is a great f*cking song! What a hook. Great lyrics. Solid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Megadeths most Under-Rated Album........... January 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is Megadeths most melodic album vocally and musically, some people seem to have a problem with this but they are the one's missing out!. Slowing down didnt hurt the band at all but many of the speed thrash heads were too cool to even give this a chance, but luckily those are the same people who never got over the 80s. It also features there best and most powerfully beautiful song "A Tout Le Monde".... "Addicted To Chaos" has a fat heavy chug without compromising the melody. If you are new to megadeth ( like i was when i first heard this ) its not exactly a generalised DETH sound but it is really really good classic/style melodic metal, and if thats what you are looking for then you wont be dissapointed. Check It Out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Youthanasia - An uderrated masterpiece March 17, 2004
By Lewton
Format:Audio CD
I really don't understand why metal fans keep insisting in the useless paranoia speech of "selling out" every time a metal band releases an album who isn't bloddy 5000 beats per minute loud and noisy as their former ones! Let's face it, Youthanasia is one of the best Megadeth albums ever. Musically and lyrically speaking. The mood is heavier, though the pace is slower than Countdown or Rust. The guitars have been tune down half a step, so it contributes to that.
Musically, it is a killer! Mustaine's both vocals and riffing are amazing, very well produced and Marty does well with some amazing soloing.
Sure, it isn't as "Megadethish" as Peace Sells or Rust, but it sure as hell is a definite highlight in this outstanding band's carrer.
"Addicted to Chaos" is my favorite, but you can name every one of the songs in the album as quite good. Intricate, melodic, defying, dark and metalic. That sums up this masterpiece!
