Welcome back Dave!,
This review is from: The System Has Failed (Audio CD)
After thinking that Dave Mustaine's career was ended by RSI, it's good to finally get to hear a new Megadeth album. I must admit that I've not been impressed by their recent output. 'Cryptic Writings' was the last CD that I really got into. With 'The System Has Failed', Mustaine seems to have re-found his knack for writing heavy and technical yet melodic music. Perhaps the return of Chris Poland to the fold has also helped give this album a more rounded and fleshed out feel. For my money, this is the best megadeth CD since 'Rust in Peace'. Stand out tracks so far: 'Die Dead Enough', 'The Scorpion' and 'Of Mice and Men'.
