Ok so we already did everyones favourite thrash band, it produced very likely outcomes. But what about (IMO) one of the greatest thrash bands of all time? Megadeth weren't as guilty as Metallica with regard to 'selling-out' but did produce their own 'load/re-load' in the name of RISK. A very disappointing album but lets not talk about that
. They also released their 'Master Of Puppets' in the name of 'Rust In Peace', definately one of the most technically perfect albums of all time.
Anyway, what is your favourite Megadeth album? Whilst I'd like to say Rust In Peace, or even Peace Sells (Wake up Dead is my favourite 'deth song), I'm going to go with Countdown to Extinction. I think it was their best album, and I think that was their best sound. Despite how much I love Hangar 18 and Tornado Of Souls, I just think the groove of Countdown sounded better overall. I thought songs like Lucretia and Polaris on Rust didn't quite cut it, plus the vocals are better on Countdown.
So my say is Countdown,a much more rounded album, maybe less thrash but still my favourite Megadeth album, whats yours?
