5.0 out of 5 stars A winner all the way, 22 Feb. 2002

This review is from: So Far, So Good...So What! (Audio CD)
Most truly classic metal albums are usually around the half hour mark and So Far So Good is no exception to the rule. I have had trouble in the past trying to decide which of Megadeth's three truly great albums (Peace Sells, So Far.. and Rust in Peace) was the undeniable best. I no longer have the same trouble. It is So Far, So Good...
From the outset you get the speed, power amd rythms that add up to what you can expect of the whole album. Into the Lungs of Hell is an instrumental dentists drill on horseback, galloping through muddy fjords while making your head jerk and vibrate. You cannot fail to be entrapped by the albums charms therein. Set the World Afire is a crunching behemoth of post-nuclear war portentousness. Anarchy in the Uk(USA) is obviously not a patch on the original but is probably one of the best covers you're likely to hear. Mary Jane is a classic. 502 is sleazy and grungey and almost cyberpunk-esque while still retaining an old skool sound - quite remarkable. The phenomenal, and possibly the best Megadeth tune penned, In My Darkest Hour comes next. It is moody without being pretentious, cynical without being self absorbed and simply one of the best ballads you'll ever hear. It's kind of like Every Breath You Take by The Police only harder and darker. Liar is a novelty Megadeth tune and shows of thing to come. Hook in Mouth has almost become a template for Megadeth album enders - just listen to Polaris and Ashes in Your Mouth from their two subsequent releases.
Overall, a tight little gem, packed with tunes and power and a verve that most rock music of recent years lack. Metal with passion - amd a wry sneer.
Best Megadeth album, ever.
