4.0 out of 5 stars Marty and Nick's influence still missed, but a MASSIVE improvement on ENDGAME!, 8 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Th1rt3en (Audio CD)
As a long time 'deth fan I can hand on heart say that I've never lost interest in them, even during the RISK days!

When Endgame dropped a few years back I was the most musically heartbroken I'd been in a while. The reviews all said "best album since Rust..." and the lead track was great. Sadly the homogenising that had begun with United Abominations was now rife, with bland speed runs and a lack of the honest fire in Dave's delivery. And Sneap's production was too LA, a sickly gloss compared to the fiery grit of SYSTEM....

So now comes the new one. Possibly Dave's last (yeah right!). And on first spin I was again left cold. Dave's delivery is still stuck in 2nd gear a tad....but there's something good going on here. Hired Guitarist Number 72 has reigned in his speed needs and curtailed to the more Marty influenced ability to work WITH the songs, and the main riffs really do worm into your head after a few spins.

This is now growing into a bit of a belter. On repeated listens you're hearing more and more of what makes Mustaine such a beloved song writer....he really does have a knack that few can boast of. The thoughts of what he and Hetfield could have been together still rears its head.

But for now, this is a fantastic 'deth record. Just give it a few spins to settle in!
