5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Megadeth album, August 20, 2004
This review is from: Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? (Audio CD)
This is the album that put megadeth "on the map", so to speak. They made some great videos (Wake up dead, Peace sells) and signed with Capitol Records. This is also the final album with the "Mustaine/Ellefson/Samuelson/Poland" lineup.

Wake up dead: 10/10

My favorite song on the album. It includes some great guitar riffs and solos, and just has a cool mood overall.

The Conjuring: 9/10

Again, great guitar work from Mustaine and Poland. Not as good as the songs it falls between though.

Peace sells: 10/10

This is one of Megadeths biggest songs. the opening bass riff is just a classic, and it was played on the MTV music news segments for years. The lyrics to this one are great, too.

Devil's Island: 10/10

An awesome song, with a catchy chorus. It also has a cool guitar solo. One of the best on the record.

Good Mourning: 5/5

This is the softer, somewhat acoustic intro to the next song, which is...

Black Friday: 4/5

After the slow Good Mourning half, the song kicks into high gear and turns into a very thrashy number.

Bad Omen: 9/10

Starts out with another slower paced intro, then it turns into an almost funk-thrash song. Very interesting.

I ain't superstious: 10/10

This one is a blues cover. Dave made some lyrical changes to this one, and gave it a more thrash feel. One of my favorites on the album.

My Last Words: 10/10

Starts off with yet another acoustic intro, then it turns into another fast-paced metal classic. A great way to end the album.

Total: 77/80, 5 stars

BONUS TRACKS:

The bonus tracks are just different mixesof Wake up dead, Conjuring, Peace sells, and Good Mourning/Black Friday. They are much more raw and include more reverb and looser sounding drums. I would have rather seen demos, but this is better than nothing!

This version is the Newly Remixed/Remastered version, personally remixed by Dave Mustaine. It sounds, obviously, much better than the original, and it includes new artwork and liner notes from dave himself. Be sure to pick this up, even if you have the original!
