Side 1 is some of the all time greatest thrash metal of all time. Forget that, some of the greatest music of all time in any genre. The guitars are tight and chug like nobody's business... at a time when Metallica was already stuck on scooped out mids that would ruin every 14 year old guitarist's tone for decades to come, Megadeth puts on a clinic on how to cut through a mix. You can actually hear the bass guitar (gasp), Chris Poland's soloing is incredible, and Gar proves he was one of the best drummers of all time.

Side 2 is almost completely forgettable unfortunately... not really sure what they were thinking. Black Friday is so sloppy I can't believe they used that take, and the lyrics are idiotic. Bad Omen is decent but sounds like an outtake from Killing Is My Business. I Ain't Superstitious is a bad cover of a song that is unlistenable in the first place. My Last Words has a great bass line but isn't that interesting otherwise.

Also I might be alone in this, but I don't mind the 2004 remaster... so sue me
