Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Th1rt3en (Audio CD)
Th1rt3en is a nice, well-produced album. Is that what you want to hear from Megadeth? Nice?
Well, I don't anyway...This album is more in the vain of Cryptic or Youthanasia rather than the great Peace sells or Rust in Peace or Endgame but without the novelty those had at the time of their release.
Rather short tracks, predictable structures, silly lyrics (Black swan).
A bit of a let down, even if as a whole the album remains pleasant and somehow a good piece of heavy metal due to the abilities of the band members, it is also very patchy.
I'd rather they came out with something a bit more complex and more up-tempo. Some seem to say that this is a more mature album, and if it the case for some tracks such as the title track, most of the songs are a bit too "friendly" for me.
It might be more suitable for iTunes format, but as an album it fails, and since I don't care for downloads, and still consider an album as an entity, I can't help but being disappointed by 13.
