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.Read more ›

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!

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?

Firstly This album showcases some great musicianship and it deserves 3/5 on that basis alone.

However, the remastering process was just not required on this album. The original mix sounds perfectly fine, almost 20 years after it was recorded. This remastered version features re-recordings of Mustaine's vocal performances. Dave's voice has gone through a few changes over the years. In 1990 he was more focused on sounding angry than singing on 'hit records'. Consequently, his current singing voice sounds alien on this album. Sadly the instrumental performances have also been edited and if you are familiar with the album you will find the alterations distracting.

In summary this is a great record but they have overcooked the remastering process. Find the original mix from 1990 - It's a tiny bit quieter, but you can get round this problem by simply turning the volume up. Seriously.

EDIT: I have noticed that my review has been included on both CD versions of this album. Just to clarify, I am reviewing the remastered release B0002EXH5O.

Dave Mustaine's composition skills are at their best on this album, no doubt about it. The first song, Holy Wars, pummels along at a brilliant rate, guitars blazing a burning path through with the occasional soloing slash, and then it ends with Dave growling an interlude which takes us into The Punishment Due, a brutal assault which builds up towards a climax and ending while Mustaine yells "Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away". Hangar 18 is, musically, a stunning accomplisment - as speedily produced and stunningly executed as it is guitar-solo filled, it has an almost FuturEgyptian feeling to the guitars. Take No Prisoners is Brutal, Poison Was The Cure is stunning and quite emotional, Tornad of Souls is melodic yet brilliant, Five Magics is a dark track leading to a "Final battle" climax, Rust In Peace... Polaris is a grinding, heavy ending to the album, with the wonderful album finale: "Eradication of Earth's Population Love Polaris" (The "Polaris" is growled by a second voice, for that flawless "Death To You All" effect). Lucretia is a great "memory lane" trip, with brilliant lyrics, Dawn Patrol is a great little dark break from the thrashing to give Apocalyptic effect.. The whole album is Thrash at it's best. Amen.
