They should have changed their name to MEGAMESS for this one. And the album should have been titled SO LAME, SO BAD… SO FUCKED! Nothing works on this for me. Where do I even begin? Well, the production? Horrible! Songwriting? Crap. Song order. Why start with an instrumental? It seems like someone just threw these together in a totally random fashion. I generally like their covers but “Anarchy In The UK” is just so cliché and I can't stand it here. Musicanship. Sorry but Jeff Young is not ready for prime time on this release. He just can't handle the duties as a lead guitarist of a late 80s thrash band. Despite this taking over 5 months to record with a major label budget it just fails to deliver in virtually every department for me. Being surrounded by two of the best albums that metal music has to offer only makes this seem even limper. They can change the title of the album too. “Look At How Much We Suck” would suit me fine. On a positive note I actually like the track “In My Darkest Hour” which probably refers to Mustaine's consistent drug use which led to this MEGAMESS. I’m a fairly tolerant listener and this one rubs me wrong in just about every way.

Yeah it´s definitely not their finest hour, but I still enjoy it on occasion. Maybe because I liked it when I was very young (and didn´t know better).
