This review is from: Peace Sells But Who's Buying (Audio CD)
this is my favorite megadeth album of all time by far. im not a huge megadeth fan but this album does it for me for some reason. Most people say either this or rust in peace is their best, but although rust has better production and an obvious musical growth it does not capture me as much as this one. The maturing and rawness with the sick lyrics and interesting concepts of this album pull me in. The song peace sells is my fav megadeth song of all time . classic bassline and by far the must entertaining lyrics of daves career. The video for this song is hilarious too. Megadeth is not one of my favorite bands but peace sells is an incrediably entertaining listen for any thrash metal fan. The muscianship is not on the level of slayer and its not as commericially accessible of as anything metallica has done except maybe kill em all but this is a special cd and proves megadeth was important in establishing the 80s thrash sound and deserves to be mentioned in the same breathe as slayer,metallica, and anthrax. Its too bad that they went totally downhill with the album after this. if this is their best say far so good so what is easily their worst. A very fun thrash metal album with some though provoking and amusing lyrics courtesy of dave mustaine. buy it.
