After the penultimate high point in their career that was the classic Rust in Peace (1990), it was hard to know what direction Megadeth would take. Fears were allayed somewhat with the release of Countdown to Extinction (1992) which could never live up to its illustrious predecessor but none the less showed the quality of the music that Megadeth were capable of producing.That album hinted at a greater focus on chorus and melody but this worked due to the quality of the riffing and the still distinctive Megadeth thrash sound.

Then in 1994 Megadeth released Youthanasia which is very much a mixed bag in terms of quality Megadeth songs and unfortunately heralded the start of the decline which was in evidence on their next three albums.In my opinion, it was a striving for commercial success that led to their decline but it ultimately ended up alienating their fans,thus the classic thrash sound that we associated with Megadeth was sacrificed. Upon buying each new Megadeth album, one thinks maybe, just maybe,it might be a return to form, but ultimately you just end up dissapointed and re-playing their older albums.

That is why Youthanasia,while not perfect is still worthy of a place in anyone's metal collection.The first three tracks 'Reckonong Day, Train of Consequences and Addicted to Chaos' thrash along brilliantly and show a new found maturity in the Megadeth sound which is further developed on the meloncholic but equally good 'A Tout le Monde'. But then there are tracks such as 'Elysian fields' and 'Blood of heroes' which simply lack any heaviness whilst 'Family Tree' and the title track are pretty much throw away fare also.Then 'I Thought I Knew it All' contains some standout riffing and lead playing whilst 'Black Curtains' is fairly non-descript.

this was released in 1994,and follows the class countdown to extinction and as a result the album follows in the same slower,more melodic song structure.As a whole i think this album was recieved pretty well,but the reality is this is possibly the last great megadeth album,some say that the system has failed was a return to form for megadeth but in truth that album ran out of steam after 6 or so songs.

Youthanasia works with themes of incest,war,gambling and suicide so its fair to say its a very well written and thought provoking album.The album has some true classics such as reckoning day,train of consequences,a tout le monde,elysian fields and victory to name but a few.What worked on this album was the overall quality of the songs,sing a long moments graced this album and each song revealed new depths to the band,something that disappeared after this,of course no megadeth album would be complete with dave mustaine throwing a tantrum and certainly in this album he again had to have it his way as opposed to including the ideas of the other members,but in truth it worked as this is a very strong album.

Youthanasia is an awesome metal release from metal masters Megadeth. this is the second of Megadeth's non thrash albums and in my point of view out does it's predecessor-Countdown to Extinction- despite at the time of it's release it remained dwarfed by Countdown's Success. The album starts with the heavy, almost epic riff of reckoning day then seemlessly drifts into the chugging train of consequences through to the emotional balladry of A Tout le monde (which, contrary to popular belief is not a suicide song!!!) and through the rest of the album. Youthanasia was probably the first Metal album i bought and remains my favorite Deth album. The album drifts away from Countdown in terms of production which is comparison to the previous Megadeth albums is very smooth and almost radio friendly, I didn't find this a problem but those who love the jagged sound of thrash may be dissapointed.

Forget the Thrash and Speed Metal of the previous releases - this is solid Heavy Metal and has nothing to do with them. It may have disappointed a few people when it was released, but to me, it was good at the time, and if anything, has possibly even got a little better with age.

The album as a whole lacks any sense of threat or aggression - but don't confuse this with it being a collection of bad songs. Try to imagine intelligent singer-songwriter songs being played by a HM band, and you will get somewhere near what is going on here. Memorable choruses, melodies, interesting arrangements and great musicianship are the hallmark of the album. Try to get A Tout Le Monde or Blood of Heroes out of your head after listening to them - it is practically impossible. Youthanasia is not fantastic all the way through, though - which is why I have docked it a point. Addicted to Chaos is utterly duff, and there are 3 more tracks which are hardly going to set fire to your trousers - but that still leaves 8 top-quality HM anthems for you to enjoy. That is a great return for any album - so perhaps they should just have been a little more ruthless with their track selection. Great album.

This was brilliant, id listened to Countdown to extinction before this, and im a relatively new Magedeth fan, but this was truly wondeful heavy metal. I was farely pleased with Countdown to extinction and decided to buy another album, but this one got me hooked on them, if i was asked which song i liked best on this album i just couldnt choose, theyve really out-done themselves. I can't wait to hear United Abominations. Id say this is the best album i've ever bought, and megadeth have secured a life long fan.
