So MegadavE is back with album 14 now (Jebus, really, that many? I stopped paying attention after The Black Alb…Countdown To Disappointment about 20 years ago!), entitled Supercollider.

It seems across the interw3b there have been a lot of super-deriders, but the band is of significant enough stature that we really should review them and since no one else at Metal Storm Towers was chomping at the bit, I figured I'd take this on as a change of pace from Slavic doom.

Just watched the music video for Supercollider. I didn't know you could get that cheesy.

Very mediocre if not worse. This is the type of album that makes me think of their name as "Meh"-gadeth.

I heard the Super Collider single. It's really bad to be honest. It doesn't sound right if you hear an ex-thrash metal band, trying to make casual rock songs to hit the radio stations. Although the bass line was enjoyable.

This isn't terrible by any means, but it's certainly not what anyone was expecting from Megadeth-and not in a good way either. Some songs really explodes-like 'Kingmaker', 'Burn!' and 'A house divided'-yet the one thing I can't really get into is Mustaine's vocals, which by now (sorry to say this fans of the band) are proving weak and consequently making him sound as old as he is. It's not a bad thing, but you can really tell that he, along with the band, seems to be running out of gas and that's probably the reason why songs like the title track and 'Beginning of sorrow' are disappointingly bland. Not quite the band's worst album, but a long way off from their best.

nah, still it's not that good when you compare it with other albums having the same style, don't forget the bad vocals of Megadeth anyway.

who says 'Rust In Peace' is their best? To me and many others 'Peace Sells' is their best. I even know people who regard 'Countdown To Extinction' as their best

Obviously I do and you and others have different opinions on their best. That's fair enough.

Not really what I would expect. it seems Dave has lost that little spark in music as well, (not to mention the vocals.)

IMO "Peace Sells" is their best album, a classic in every sense.

Because it's not even a decent album if you turn a blind eye over Megadeth and that it was made by the same band that recorded some other good albums. Musically, it's more cheesy than ever and while I am a fan of Megadeth, I find this album to be extremely average on its own and a more disappointing entry in Megadeth's catalog. I'm not saying they shouldn't have shifted towards a more accessible sound, but even for an "accessible" album, it's an anemic effort.

Finally forced myself to listen to the whole album. Some songs barely attain an 'average' mark, but most of all this album's flaw is that it's totally dull, lifeless, without energy or anything... to keep along with Risk in the worst part of Megadave's efforts.

Oh and that cover of Thin Lizzy's Cold Sweat is awesome.




That was the low point of the album. Totally horrendous cover. Even worse than what Anthrax did with their Anthems cover e.p. and that one was already very bad.

Didn't give the whole thing a chance, but jebus am I enjoying the s/t song
Randomly starting humming the chorus the other day for absolutely no reason, even if I hadn't listen to it since it came out but it's some nice radio rock material.

Definitely not as laughable as many make it out to be. Tracks 1 and 4-9 are, on average, pretty decent.

The remainder, however...I can't defend that.

I was expecting a heavier album than this (like Endgame). Unfortunately, they are back to their radio rock sound (excluding Built For War, also Cold Sweat wasn't that bad). Their songs are again some kind of Cryptic Writings style. I wonder if Dave's daughter wrote the country-ish title track
