Megadeth - Countdown To Extinction

Boom goes the metal dynamite! Mustaine and company have been one of my metal favorites for over a decade now. I love his voice and the lyrics and guitar work on all of their records is always beyond solid. Even if you're not a huge metal fan, I think you can listen to a few tracks and be really surprised by how you're captivated by the music. Some tracks get a little 'talky', meaning there are too many words instead of just block rockin beats and major guitar riffs. No question he has a ton of talent on the axe, but the lyrics can be preachy sometimes. I guess it might depend on the mood you're in too. All in all, you have to respect these guys as foreman of metal nowadays. They've stayed true to form and Mustaine has showed he can generate really good music after leaving Metallica. These fellas keep putting out new stuff from time to time, but I honestly haven't heard anything remotely recently from them. I keep playing the old stuff just because hey, it's really good.
