Well, this sort of metal is not my usual thing. I must say - I'm surprised that I really enjoyed this album. While Dawn Patrol is complete filler, and Poison Was the Cure is "meh", the rest makes for a nearly top notch album. The title track, Lucretia, and Hangar 18 are outstanding, and Holy Wars is better than outstanding. Here's the thing about this album - it's not just pointless thrashing, because it has great guitar riffs/melodies intertwined with fantastic rhythms (look at Hangar 18..). Yes, the vocals aren't amazing, but it's a lot better than that ridiculous Pantera crap.

Overall, you do have to be in the mood for the album to really get into it, because it very rarely lets up, but, if you're going in expecting a good time, it promptly delivers.

Best track - Holy Wars... The Punishment Due

I think Metallica's Master of Puppets is the only album that could match this thrash metal masterpiece. "Holy Wars" and "Hangar 18" in particular are some incredible thrash songs.

An absolute clinic in thrash metal songwriting. Dave Mustaine's riff writing gives me chills, and he and Marty Friedman might be the best guitar duo of all time.

Pieza clave en la carrera de unos liderados por Dave Mustaine que siempre se supieron rodear de músicos de primera división, pero que para esta ocasión hicieron dos fichajes que elevaron el nivel hasta cotas inalcanzables para el resto de mortales. Así pues; completaban la formación Marty Friedman como guitarra solista, Nick Menza a la batería y el eterno compañero de viaje Dave Ellefson como bajista. Siempre mirando de reojo a Metallica, aquí Megadeth consiguió superar el tecnicismo mostrado por sus rivales en 'And Justice for All' dando un golpe en la mesa que aún se recuerda. Posiblemente estemos hablando de la última gran obra maestra de un Thrash Metal que en los 90 comenzaría su absoluta decadencia. 'Rust in Peace' es un formidable trabajo de un Thrash Metal técnico con unos toques de progresivo que le dan una clase tremenda.

A technically astounding album that suffers from weak vocals. While many of the transitions are impressive, they often come at the expense of the song.

Funny how this record seems to get put down sometimes regarding the vocal, like metal is endowed with a plethora of cool singers haha. I'll take dave over most metal singers, cheers. Definitely on this album for sure.
