4.0 out of 5 stars mind-blowing speed/thrash metal 26 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
Now this is what a metal album should be like. Lyrics drenched in substance and that are terribly relevant "killing for religion, something I don't understand!" So simple, so devastatingly true and straightforward. Mustaine re-establishes himself as a talented lyricist. Each and every track offers exemplary musicianship, as is and has been the trademark of every Megadeth album. Even more so for this album, as it has guitar virtuoso Marty Friedman working on lead guitar. Mustaine's tight and insanely precise rhythm work added with great bass lines from Dave Ellefson and fast- as-hell drumming from Nick Menza you have one outstanding album.

I won't get into a debate as to whether the remastered version is better then the original or vice versa, however, there are few things you should know before rushing to the store to buy this album. If you have the original, don't bother with buying this version as the original captured the intensity and the mood of the band at the time. This version serves to give a fine sheen and make the sound quality better, in which it excels. I can't shake the feeling that Mustaine might have re-recorded some parts, which just ruins the whole thing.

Oh yes, if you are after the bonus tracks, then by all means get it as you get to here a faster version of the holy wars... track with Chris Poland on lead guitars and some demos of some other tracks. I bought this version because I didn't have the original one and I had heard holy wars (the original version) from the capitol punishment album. Enjoy, this is an essential purchase for megadeth fans, thrash/speed metal fans and metal fans in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars metal masterpiece!! 29 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
in my view this is by far the best megadeth album and one of the most complete metal albums ever.frantic riffing,technical solos,amazing lyrics and jaw dropping song structures combine to make it seem all so effortless.i guess thats why the only way was down after this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it really is a classic 1 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
I won't go on and on about this album. So much has been said about it already. I will just give a quick, honest opinion. And my opinion is that Rust In Peace, Megadeth's fourth release, is an amazing album, not just a thrash but a metal classic and their best album. This is a thrashy, snarling masterpiece. It's very heavy, hard edged and the rhythm guitars have a really nasty, shredded sound, while the leads just sound fantastic. I personally think this album has a very unique sound to it. The lyrics are top, too. I think Dave Mustaine really delivers the vocals very well, and i love the way he sings this album. But another obvious thing you notice is the musical mastery. This album not only has great songs that sound fantastic, but it is technically excellent. Here you really have a group of musicians who are absolutely amazing at what they do; who have totally mastered their chosen instruments. All do a fantastic job: the bass sounds great and there are some brilliant basslines; some of the drumming is out of this world; but the guitar solos are just incredible. There is a lot of lead guitar play on this album, but it doesn't sound cheesy or 'permy'. The songs themselves are outstanding quality, and the songwriting skills, mainly of Mustaine, are very evident on this record. In my humble opinion, there isn't one bad song on this album. ALL are great, but a few standout tracks for me - 'Holy Wars....The Punishment Due'; 'Hangar 18'; 'Take No Prisoners'; 'Tornado Of Souls'; 'Rust In Peace...Polaris'. This remastered version of the album has better sound quality of course. It's not your average cheap rip-off of a remastering release; everything has been given an overhaul, but it doesn't take away from the greatness of the album, and i actually think the album sounds really refreshed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thrash guitar album of all time. 9 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
Put this on, turn it up, strap yourself into a chair, and prepare to thrash for your life through what is the best thrash guitar album of all time.
'So Far, so good, so what?' had established Megadeth as a credible rival to Metallica and allowed front man (and 2nd guitarist) Dave Mustaine to make his point, but where next? Keep things fairly & squarely thrash, but lose the NWOBHM & punk leanings in favour of a more polished & progressive approach, and hire one of the best lead guitarists around, is where!
This is the album where Megadeth brings it all together, and peak. This one has blistering guitar and drum work, fast-paced songs that will leave you breathless, shouting, sneering, politics, magic and oh, oh those blazing solos!
Pretty much every song is a highlight. "Holy Wars...The Punishment Due" kicks things off which riffs throughout, and builds to a stunning climax of lead guitar frenzy. "Hangar 18" is a complete shred-fest, with Mustaine & Friedman dueling throughout.
"Take No Prisoners" and "Five Magics" feature some fantastic interplay between the riffing guitars and drums (some of the most polished thrash chops ever heard) and "Tornado of Souls" is just outstanding. How many killer riffs can one song actually hold before it explodes?

5.0 out of 5 stars classic thrash 19 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ok so Mustaine messed up with re-recording this amazing album and you should probably try to find one of the originals, but the songs are great nonetheless.
'holy wars...' is one of my favourite songs of all time and is just perfect thrash. it truly is mind-blowing when you have it blasting out at full volume. but the other songs on the album aren't overshadowed, there are still classics like 'hangar18' and 'five magics'. all following the same formula of fast and heavy thrash metal has created a great album that isn't boring or repetetive at any point. 'dawn patrol' can hardly be described as a song and is a bit of a waste of space but it doesn't matter when following it is another stand out track 'rust in peace...'
definately one of my favourite albums of all time and is on a level-pegging with master of puppets by metallica - that's how good it is!
