  At least as compared to last 3 Megadeth albums, it's very good.
thewall30 - 24.01.2010 at 02:10  
Rating: 10 Great album! I would say it has a spot in Megadeth's top 5 albums of all time, of course behind the classics...

Anyways, I was very satisfied with this release and I would highly recommend this...
His Eminence - 25.01.2010 at 14:19  
  This is a very good album. It's a great return to form, in my opinion.
Martin_metal - 25.01.2010 at 23:25  
Rating: 7 There are 3 maybe 4 songs who have a old megadeth vibe on it. But the rest is only good, noting moore. But that´s what I think..

Rating: 10 Best album of the year!
elekctric - 10.02.2010 at 18:03  
Rating: 10 Ok I would also vote one of the tops of the year...
Metalforos666 - 22.02.2010 at 18:15  
  Not good enough, i prefer the "The System Has Failed".
Zio - 22.02.2010 at 20:40  
Rating: 8 Not the best of the year, but it's a very good one in my opinion ... There are many strong riffs
Panterica - 25.02.2010 at 18:35  
  A strong record, though I feel they focused mainly on shredding, which is good but not everything. I recommand to all Megadeth/Pantera/Slayer/Death Angel fans to check out Sacrifice's album The Ones I Condemn. Pure Thrash to bang your head with.
Angelic Storm - 25.02.2010 at 19:10  
Rating: 8 Definitely overrated IMO. "The System Has Failed" totally raised the bar for Megs, and was definitely my fave since RIP. And "Endgame" fails to topple it. Some songs are really good, but some solos feel like they've been added for their own sake, and as talented as Chris Broderick is, he doesn't really fit with Megadeth's sound IMO. Some songs also sound rushed, or unfinished. It's a good album to be sure, but too flawed to be classed among their best, or even equal to "The System Has Failed". "Headcrusher" is awesome though! As is "Bodies Left Behind", though that is one of the songs which feels unfinished to me....
Orphan Saint - 04.03.2010 at 16:19  
  Great, great music here! Megadave and crew certainly have this part nailed. Dave's vocals were Dave's Vocals, and we all know what to expect there. But am I the only one who thought most of the lyrics on this album were incredibly lame? At times, dare I say, St Anger lame.
Giza - 09.03.2010 at 13:05  
Rating: 8 This one is clearly Dave Mustaines comeback album. And I gotta say this is one hell of a comeback! I recomend this to any shreading freak, like myself!
Jezebel~ - 13.04.2010 at 01:49  
Rating: 7 I really do like this album, I have to admit. And yes, it is a great comeback for Megadeth. And of course, I LOVE the lyrics... Especially in Endgame.
soadbyob - 13.04.2010 at 16:06  
  Actually a very good album, wasnt expecting this. Great work, Mustaine
assassinazer - 06.06.2010 at 23:07

According to that reasoning United Abominations would be the defintion of crap. Imo Endgame is the definition f average for it uses totally out of place solos for showing off sake.

You liked an album that is the epitome of boredom and up there at boredom levels with ditties such as Practice What Your Preach, Souls In Black etc etc? Wow, suprising.

One word: Amerikhastan. I think I got addicted to it, for some reason.

BTW, it's Souls OF Black. And... I think it's more boring than UA.

The only half decent to half good songs on UA are Sleepwalker & Washington Is Next!
Amerikhastan is up their in contrivence and crappiness with the rerecording atrocity of Tout Le Monde, which already was horrendous in its original version.

A Tout le Monde (Set Me Free) was the worst track on the album. The opening of Amerikhastan was laughable too, but I don't know... :|

I've never said "United Abominations" was better than "The System Has Failed". UA is IMO the worst Megadeth album after "Risk".

Sleepwalker, Washington is Next! and Gears of War are great songs. The rest is awful.

IMO the worst Megadeth album after "Risk" is "The World Needs A Hero". For me, "The System Has Failed" is the best Megs album outside of the first 4.

UA suffers from some of the same problems as ''Endgame'' but not as much. Even though I enjoy more of what's on ''Endgame'' than UA. Despite what most people say about Megs re-discoveing their classic aggression, I think ''Head Crusher'' is the only song on the album which manages to sound aggressive and at the same time, not forced. Its definitely up there with modern Megs thrash classics like "Blackmail The Universe", and "Kick The Chair". xD

The main "melodic grinding" riff isn't that appealing to me.

But it's a decent song, I guess.

I also prefer "World Painted Blood". hehe "Endgame" is certainly a decent album, and has it's moments, but it is lacking something imo. Maybe it's that classic macabre edge, that makes the best of Megadeth's stuff so great. They managed to recapture some of that on "The System Has Failed", which is why I love that album so much. Also, I feel some of the solos come off as a bit forced, and don't flow as well as on the classic Megadeth material.

Yes, i know, but in spanish we would say "es un señor album" , so i tried to translate or transform it to english. "Señor" = "lord", "sir", "Mr", "Gentleman" = "Caballero" = "knight" well... , haha =) .

Better "Señor album", because "album" is a masculine noun in spanish, it is as if the noun of "Lord"/"Sir"/"Señor" become an adjective. Maybe "Mr" would be a better translation to English, "it is a Mr album" =), but for me i like more the word "Sir".
