Specialists/collaborators reviews

martindavey87
After 15 years of making music, Megadeth finally hit that dreaded stage of their careers that metal fans frown upon with utter contempt and hatred... the commercial album. Heaven's forbid, sometimes a band just want to try something new, or maybe they'd like to try and actually make some money (a blasphemous sin, no doubt), or maybe, seeing as how heavy metal music was pretty much dead in 1999, they thought they'd try to get something out to the mainstream and show that the genre still has plenty of life and vitality in it (it did, of course, but that would come at the hands of bands like Linkin Park... who'da thunk it?).

So here we are, it's 1999, and Megadeth alienated all of their fans by releasing their radio-friendly pop album 'Risk', but made a new one in me. I was 12 years-old and other than 'Destroyer' by Kiss, this was my first true exposure to heavy metal. I fell in love with the song 'Crush 'Em' after hearing Megadeth perform on a World Championship Wrestling show. It was a performance that nobody asked for, nobody watched, and the few that actually did, certainly didn't care. Except for me, because it pretty much changed my life.

So what's wrong with Risk? Absolutely nothing!

It's not thrash metal. It doesn't have that raw, grittiness that Megadeth classics such as 'Rust in Peace' and 'Peace Sells' have. And what's this? Strings? Acoustic guitars? An "anthem"?

Well boo-hoo-hoo to all the whiny metal fans who hated Megadeth for going all Bon Jovi on us and "selling out". The truth is, this album is still heavy metal. 'Insomnia', 'Prince of Darkness' and 'The Doctor is Calling' are still as dark, gloomy and heavy as any Megadeth track, and Dave Mustaine's brief foray into actually singing on tracks like 'Breadline', 'I'll Be There' and 'Ecstasy' all show that even the most metal of icons have their softer sides.

Much like 'Load' did for Metallica a few years prior, the fan backlash at 'Risk' pretty much exemplifies why metal fans sometimes deserve the flak they get. Good music speaks for itself, and when it all comes down to it, the music on this record is pretty damn good, whether it's 1988 thrash metal Megadeth or 1999 Bon Jovi Megadeth. Take a 'risk', get over it.

Ridiculously underrated,

I can understand why traditional Megadeth fans love to pan this album so much. Or at least, I try to. Sometimes I cannot help but wonder if they have whole CD shelves packed with just full-throttle thrash metal and refuse to even think about anything else. That's the only way I can see not enjoying this album: having a mind that's closed to anything outside unaltered thrash.

By now, pretty much everyone is aware of this album's foray into dark, moody rock territory - a stark departure from the heavy metal we're used to from older (and newer) releases. Dave and Co. took a risk; and they don't get a lot of respect for it. That's unfortunate because this album succeeds on all levels. The melodies are different but well-developed and catchy - some on the first listen; others will wait until the tenth listen to jump out at you. Lyrics are top-notch; in fact they do explore basically the same dark-side-of-life issues that their previous albums do - with a less nihilistic tone. Clean guitar abounds; and the drums are a real gem - simple yet completely effective.

This album is currently available right here at Amazon used for one dollar. If you don't have this album, you don't have much to lose! Give it the chance it deserves - forget what you've heard.
