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.

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.

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!

Looking back at Megadeth's history book, clear is their musicianship, talent and above all their constant maturity and improvements.The band hit the top when they recorded Countdown to Extinction and then.....they stormed over the top with Youthanasia. The album features a more mature sound/riffing/solos from the band. The songs are shorter than those in Rust in peace (which is Megadeth favourite album by fans) but each song in Youthanasia is as heavy as those in Rust....The solos are more melodic here and the techniques used in riffing and solos is more complex and melodic(again!). The album opens with the wicked 'Reckoning day' which has a cool 'acoustic-like' solo. then comes the 'Train of consequences & Addicted to chaos'. what comes next is one of Megadeth's finest and most sincere moments....A tout le monde is a classic, with all the meanings that classic holds. the lyrics in this song are beautiful. The intro is one of my favourites and the bridge/chorus are among the best you can ever hear. Also on this album, there's the haunting 'Family tree' with its neat bass riff. The song 'Youthanasia' is also an excellent song advancing from the slow doomy-like riff to the typical Megadeth thrash riff. Then to add a magnificent final touch to the album, 'I thought I knew it all' comes to play. Everything in this song is perfect. The lyrics will haunt you for a long time. The riff will echo in your ears and the solo will complete this classic (too!)...The production on this album (like Countdown to extinction) is crisp and the sound is crystal-clear. All in all this album truley a masterpiece. I am not just writing down an opinion here just so you know that I'm a big fan of Megadeth, but good music should be appreciated anywhere and this album is surely one of music's finest hours, one of metal's greatest offerings and one of Megadeth's best albums...ever. It's an album to enjoy,keep and treasure...and that's a fact. Thank you.
