Take away the hyper-aggressive nature of Rust , but keep the song writing at an all time high, and you've got this Megadeth masterpiece. Mustaine and co. And why would I mention that softer yet killer tune? Because that fits Dave's rehabilitation idea at the time, and it comes through on this piece of treasure quite a lot "Sweating Bullets" being the most obvious form.

Looking at this strictly from a musical point of view, this is some of the best work the band has ever put out. The rhythms are some of the tightest they've ever written, and while the crazy chord progression and signature changes aren't there anymore, the melodic end of it is one of its greatest features. Seeing that Friedman had more of a say in the musical writing than before, this was probably another contributing factor alongside Mustaine's desire for change.

So really, just because this is a step softer than works that proceed it, saying that it's generic or poorly written shows an obvious lack of musical understanding, theory, and what goes into song writing. Plus, the addressing of real issues at the time are all over the place, mostly political, but the self struggles are there too. Probably not the initial intent, but that's what comes to my mind. For thrash goers, it's still a full on thrash record.

All but only a few tracks are still heavy and have that driving kick to them. They're cleanly produced, brought back a notch, thrash hits. Hell, most of them even still cue in on that minor, darker tone that the band were so good and portraying. Anyone ever bash Metal Church for "not being thrash enough"? So why this gets hit for that, I don't know. If nothing in this review can be seen still, then look at the demos that this version includes as bonus tracks.

They show the primitive form, and had every song contained the production of these, nobody would bat an eye. Overall, Countdown To Extinction is some of the best work they've put out, and clearly is surrounded by misconceptions. If we're not on the same page, I suggest giving this a focused listen.

Do so with no distractions. One day, not too long ago, I was listening to some Megadeth and "Sweating Bullets" came on. I'm just going to say it: I hate this song I'll explain shortly. My girlfriend was sitting across the room. I was like "Hey listen to this chorus it sucks ass," and they said "did he just say 'sweating balls'?

Why do I hate "one of the greatest Megadeth songs of all time" you may ask? The lyrical structure, lyrical execution, vocal effects, and the lyrics themselves. The song starts out very promising thrash metal riffage, only to be ruined by Mustaine going "Hello, me, meet the real me. Does Megadeth do spoken word now?

Then there's the chorus "sweatinnnng bulleeeeets! The effects near the end with Dave overlapping his own voice come off as lame. I get that the song is about going mad, but they could've done better. I saw this album referred to as "Megadeth's Black Album. Metallica's release's main downfall, for me, was its overall length. Countdown to Extinction is just a bunch of watered-down thrash anthems with one track that has a country twang "High Speed Dirt".

I will admit, despite the country aspect of "High Speed Dirt," the twangy guitar solo is pretty good. The last track on the album has to be the worst for me. The verse riff is just a power chord that bites at my eardrums in the worst way possible every time it is plucked which is quite often. At over six minutes long, this song is the worst way to end an already mediocre album: slowly and painfully, and adding the echo effect at the end did not help this song in any way.

At least the solo is okay. Everything about this album is a disappointment for me. It's mediocre thrash that lacks original melody and overall technicality. Even the album cover is disappointing. Every other album cover had Vic Rattlehead doing something cool. This time, it's some shriveled-up old dude with a loin cloth around his waist, screaming.

It sort of looks like Dio, but if he were dead for several years which, in , he was not. Maybe this was a prediction to what Dio's corpse would look like after Last in Line shit on his reputation. I don't want to come off as someone who just hates songs because they're popular. These are my legitimate opinions. This album is the clear transition, if not the abrupt halt in their discography that identifies their change in sound.

It's virtually impossible to review this album without comparing it to Metallica's self-titled "Black Album. Getting kicked out of the band on another coast and being sent home did a real doozy on him. One can't help but wonder if Megadeth would have flat out ceased to exist if all of Metallica died in that bus crash. Mustaine's goal was to become a badder, more dangerous band than Metallica would ever be.

One could argue that happened the second Killing Is My Business came out, but when Rust In Peace came out there simply was no comparison. Mustaine, Ellefson and his new members Marty Friedman and Nick Menza had put out a very, very strong contender for the greatest metal album of all time.

The only people who didn't like the album were sloppy crust punks and who gives a fuck what they think? And Justice For All on the other hand, despite being Metallica's strongest commercial outing to date, received plenty of criticism from the metal community: The songs are too long; where's the bass; the production is awful; its Ride The Lightning again but even longer; etc.

From a subjective point of view, Mustaine had won the war. Except Mustaine wanted an objective victory. Megadeth certainly was no slouch in the first three categories for a thrash metal band, but the entire Rust In Peace had just lost a Grammy to Metallica for one single track and it was a fucking Queen cover! Thus began the commercialization of Megadeth. On a lyrical level, this album is lock stock and barrel a much smarter, more socially relevant record than Metallica , even on a commercial level.

Countdown to Extinction 's first single was about how cult of personalities can manipulate their way into positions of power and have disastrous results for mankind, whereas Metallica 's first single was about babies having scary nightmares. Countdown 's second single was how corporate greed was driving farmers out of business, and Metallica 's second single was about how someone can't grow and mature because they're afraid of being judged by their peers projecting your bullshit much, Lars?

Countdown's third single dealt with social anxiety, schizophrenia and mental illness, and Metallica 's third single was a glam metal power ballad. You get the drift. Unfortunately for Mustaine, there was a commercial ethos that he either never had the dishonesty to pursue, or never really figured out.

The masses despise the smart, the educational, and being educated, preferring primal faux masculinity and James's ridiculous southern oohs and yeah-eahs. They like to think they're being deep and edgy without wanting to go the extra mile of alienating the alpha males at the bar. Lars, being the sniveling weasel that he is, recognized the stupidity of the masses and chose to exploit them.

He was market savvy and schemed accordingly. Mustaine just wanted to turn venues upside down and deport all the glam bands to Uranus. For these reasons, Countdown could unfortunately never hope to achieve the commercial heights of the black album, despite being an all around more honest record. The highlight of the album is without question album closer Ashes In Your Mouth. This raging thrasher just might be the greatest song of Megadeth's career for the simple reason that if you were to put it on any other Megadeth album, especially the classics, it would be considered the best song on the respective record, the only question being by how many sonic miles mileage would of course vary by the record.

Other respective thrashers include Skin O My Teeth and High Speed Dirt, great songs that wouldn't quite take top honors on say, Peace Sells, but certainly wouldn't stick out as turkeys either. Nonetheless, the album is yet another victim of the CD age, e. Plus during that critical moment of the audience beginning to look at their watches, Psychotron and Captive Honour just don't deliver. Bonus track Crown of Worms would have been a much stronger and shorter song to place between High Speed Dirt and Ashes In Your Mouth, giving the album more tightness and meat.

Countdown To Extinction is a fine hybrid of thrash and traditional metal. If you're looking for the more dangerous, fiery successor to Rust In Peace, you aren't going to find that here nor likely anywhere in metal. But you will find a great collection of solid rockers whose messages are sadly more relevant today than they were in To say that Metallica completely changed the playing field when it came to metal and more specifically, commercially successful metal is an understatement. Its influence on future heavy music aside, it opened the floodgates for multiple genre mainstays and their imitators to release albums that were a drastic change in direction.

Following its release Anthrax went grunge, Sepultura went groove, and Megadeth, in all of Dave Mustaine's wide-eyed envy, took a similar approach to Metallica for this release. The two explore a lot of the same sonic territory, this came soon after Metallica and at an analogous point in Megadeth's career, and the two share a lot of the same flaws.

And since the two are so similar, I'll get this out of the way - since people are so hasty to point out Metallica sold out and give the band crap, Megadeth did too. I don't know what makes people give this album or the band more of a pass for the same sin, as Dave sold out hard here and the music suffered for it. Like Metallica , this is a drastically simplified and scaled back album from the technical excellence, songwriting prowess and undiluted aggression displayed on this album's 4 predecessors.

Virtually every song here is simpler in every respect compared to before, being built around a verse-chorus structure with little deviation in that formula, and the songs are more focused on catchy choruses and the vocals than ever.

Dave does a lot more melodic and clean singing here and his snarling, nasally voice sounds at odds with the accessible direction the band is going in, mainly as he hadn't gotten used to singing in a more conventional and melodic fashion yet. He doesn't really emote much outside of aggression and when shooting for a less aggressive feel he sounds like a fish out of water; not bad but certainly odd and awkward.

It's not a voice that is easy to get used to though once that happens he's not so bothersome. The shorter songs means the solos are shorter too, though technically they still are up to scratch as they have a great deal of flash and taste to them.

The change in style here isn't a problem inherently, and unlike Metallica the band certainly don't extend their songs to the point of tedium on this one. The problem here is another one that dogged that album though - the music reeks of wasted potential as many of the songs here simply aren't that impressive and don't serve up much to interest the listener or commit the songs to memory, perhaps caused by deliberate restraint on the band's part and not being comfortable writing in a more accessible heavy metal style.

Much of the material here doesn't pan out so well, mostly due to not having interesting instrumentation or vocals - these tracks aren't bad or even that boring, just very plain and bland. On the heavier side of things, 'This Was My Life' and 'Captive Honour' go in one ear and out the other beyond the latter's stupid extended intro dialogue.

The band is obviously going for more hook-driven numbers but they don't bring the riffs, energy or choruses to make the songs stick, and so they aren't even catchy like the ballads. On the other hand, 'Architecture of Aggression' and 'Psychotron' clearly had more work put into them, featuring much stronger riffs that are more groove and thrash influenced. This stronger backbone the songs are built upon gives the songs and the choruses the energy and drive needed to stick.

To highlight how inconsistent the album gets, it manages to feature two of Megadeth's best songs and one of their worst. It's a very catchy song with an equally memorable and groovy main riff that has multiple phases to its construction, including a set of extended solos that form its bridge. It alone makes this more than worthy of any Megadeth fan's collection and would not be out of place on Rust in Peace.

However, there's also the laughable and silly 'Sweating Bullets' which is inexplicably a popular song for the band. It's truly a stain on the band's catalogue; there's nothing enjoyable about its crappy and tedious stop-start riff, the corny spoken word narration that form the verses or the descending melody that forms its irritating hook. Ultimately like the album Dave wanted to replicate so badly, this winds up being a perfectly decent if inconsistent foray into commercial waters, and a waste of potential given what had come before it.

This is definitely essential for any Megadeth fan due to its highlights and place in history of the band and metal as a whole, but be prepared for a less than stellar effort. This is undoubtedly a Megadeth album, which means that it has all of the elements of a classic 'deth album.

Super tight riffs? Dave's snarly howls? Top tier instrumentation? Because these things are what the album is based on. Instead of combining the vicious attitude of the previous albums with the things listed above, the band took a lazier approach in songwriting and in maximizing its musical abilities. If this album was talked about in terms of food, this album would've been an outdated slice of pastrami between two freshly baked brioche buns.

Despite the huge differences in musical approach and intensity, you can see that the band has maximized the potential in every one of the buns which are Rust In Peace and Youthanasia to a point where there are barely any weak moments- a thing which is very evident in this album.

As said before, Countdown to Extinction is very lazy, and in fact, the laziest Megadeth album of the nineties. Songs like "Captive Honour" and "Countdown to Extinction" just make you want to throw your palm against your face. What the hell were they thinking? The riffs are great. The drums are tight.

The solos are top notch name a more iconic duo than Dave and Marty - but still, the songs seem too dragged, forced, and not very motivated. Take the demo versions of "Psychotron" and the title track for example. These had so much balls and power, but the studio versions of these songs which appeared in Countdown just squeezed every drop of intensity the demo had.

Don't get me wrong- there are a few notable tracks which saved the album from being a total trainwreck. The obvious examples such as "Symphony of Destruction," "Skin O' My Teeth," "Sweating Bullets," "High Speed Dirt," and "Ashes in Your Mouth" seem to provide the best Megadeth experiences throughout the album and are not lazy or forced by any means- but the real issue with Countdown is the filler tracks.

After numerous listens, recalling any part from the obvious filler tracks has become quite an impossible mission- how come so many good parts were put in songs that are devoid of any intensity. The creativity within these tracks is pretty unrecognizable as well, because of how brutally it was sterilized- a thing which is evident in some of the stronger and mediocre tracks as well.

Even when revisiting the album the stronger tracks seem to be huge letdowns. The studio versions of these songs seem to be lazier as well, which is another thing that completely destroys the album. There is a HUGE difference between seeing these songs being played by the band live and between listening to the studio versions of the songs. The production job in this album is one of the shittiest ever heard in a Megadeth release.

Instead of making it sound warm and inviting like the four albums before this one we're talking thrash here, not black metal , or crunchy and powerful like the next two, this album sounds completely mechanical and artificial. What was the band thinking while producing this? The bass is almost inaudible, the guitars seem to lack any power and only the drums are correctly produced and equalized within the mix.

And let's not talk about the remaster which destroyed that as well. This album is one of the only Megadeth albums which features some killer, and mostly filler material. The non utilized potential that is held here is huge, and it's a real shame that instead of maximizing the skills, intensity, and attitude Megadeth is known for, the band has provided the world this half of a letdown.

Pretty disappointing. First of all, let's get the whole The Black Album thing out of the way. Sure, Dave Mustaine must have seen the dramatic commercial success that greeted Metallica's radical shift in style and probably thought that it was another opportunity to try to outdo his old bandmates. However, comparing those two albums, Countdown to Extinction doesn't really deserve the label of sell-out, whereas Metallica's effort is clearly a grasping attempt to become suitable for an audience of stadium rock fans and keg-party morons.

Disclaimer: I am not aligning those two groups of people. The over-simplified riffing, stomping rhythms, and conventional songwriting structure - so far away from And Justice for All - was practically an insult to Metallica's fans and, although those who loved Rust in Peace might have hated Megadeth for a while, there seems to be less of an attempt to actually dumb down the music here, as well as the lyrical content.

What is in fact fairly interesting about Countdown to Extinction is that despite looking like a commercial album simpler cover, more consistent song lengths, generally verse-chorus song structures it has a lot of detail and skill added to it that takes it whole levels above mere commercialism. Starting with the lyrics and Mustaine's vocals, one would not expect this to be a release that charted at No. Not exactly Michael Jackson, is it? Then there's the vocals too, which are rather odd when one considers them in context: Mustaine doesn't have an especially skilled voice as a singer, can't wail like a power metal vocalist, can't sing anthems like a stadium giant, can't even do James Hetfield's rough roar, yet he acts his way through most of the songs, using a range of styles from sombre disapproval on 'Countdown to Extinction' to tough phlegmy growls on 'Symphony of Destruction' to snarling insanity on 'Sweating Bullets', plus some more melodic moments.

His voice sometimes sounds inappropriate, though he's used it to his advantage for the most part. The same kind of variety is to be seen in the instrumental ideas too. David Ellefson does more than most bassists would dare to do with the title track, propelling not only the intro but also keeping the verses afloat by himself and providing more fuel for an otherwise very melodic chorus. I have the remaster from and he's certainly mixed high on that edition, while there's a demo version of 'Countdown to Extinction' that features a nice bass solo.

Nick Menza has a good time of it on drums too, ripping the album open with his fill intro to 'Skin o' My Teeth' and never resorting to Lars Ulrich's favourite slow stadium beat. As for Marty Friedman, he isn't doing nearly as much as he was on Rust in Peace , though there are few albums where anyone does that much in terms of skillful leadwork, so maybe it's not such a surprise.

He and Mustaine still turn in some great solos, the most interesting of which might be the regular lead fills on 'Psychotron' or the inspired latter part of 'High Speed Dirt', which incorporates some fun clean solos in rock 'n' roll style without losing any of the song's thrashy momentum. That said, the catchiness of some of the riffs is welcome, the best examples being on the rollicking opener, 'High Speed Dirt', and the bridge of 'Sweating Bullets', which are mostly the quicker numbers.

The slower songs aren't bereft of content, featuring melodies that one might be caught humming in the shower, even the unusual folky swing of the title track's chorus. There are a few songs that don't seem to quite hit it off due to a lack of momentum or slightly plodding verses, such as 'Architecture of Aggression' and 'Foreclosure of a Dream', while 'This Is My Life' is the only time that I suspect I'm listening to Hetfield and co.

However, most of the songs are good, even if they aren't as viscerally exciting as the band's older material, nor as technically profficient. The reissue also has a pretty good bonus song called 'Crown of Worms' done with Diamond Head that's worth a listen. In general, Countdown to Extinction doesn't give me the same feeling as Megadeth's heavier work, nor do I believe it's as good, but don't let that stop you from checking it out since there are good songs to be found and some catchy music as well.

In a just world, this should be bigger than The Black Album , although if it were really a just world Rust in Peace would have been huge and Megadeth would never have needed to change their style. Their mission was to craft a follow-up album that would bring the band to new heights. Of course, during the s, thrash metal was experiencing a massive decrease in popularity.

With this new decade, metal as a whole seemed to be changing. Most of the thrash bands that were exploding in the s moved away from their roots. This is not including the numerous grunge acts that began popping up. Megadeth dropped much of the thrash out of their sound as well, beginning with this album, incorporating a more melodic heavy metal sound with slight traces of thrash still scattered about.

Unfortunately, this album would only sell around 2 million copies in the U. As if album sales were indicators of quality, anyway. Unlike the aggressive thrash riffs of old, this is more of a melodic rocker with an overall traditional heavy metal sound. The riffs are slower yet still fairly speed metal influenced, albeit less aggressive.

The rest of the album follows a more mid-paced heavy metal sound. Make no mistake, though, there is plenty of heaviness here. After an extremely brief symphonic intro, a heavy riff explodes out of nowhere. Unfortunately, for me, this song falls a little short. The title-track also shows Mustaine writing about themes the band had never really touched on before this album.

Lyrically, this is a new stepping stone for the boys. This song deals with humanity and how humans are killing off different species of animals to extinction, basically. This song also starts with one of the most beautiful acoustic riffs Mustaine has ever written. This song adopts lyrics alluding to someone heading towards the ground at full speed. So these lyrics range from really deep topics to thought-provoking themes, and themes of robots and falling from the sky.

There is a lot of lyrical diversity here. Unfortunately, this album did not sell nearly as well and did not quite get the recognition it deserved. Really, this could be said about anything Megadeth had put out in the s, which was all superior to 90s Metallica in every way. Oh well, Metallica is pretty much a "brand" within the metal genre, so of course it will sell better.

That doesn't necessarily mean it IS better. So with this album, Megadeth launched themselves into the world of s commercial radio metal. But was it a failure? Was it a mistake? No, not at all. This album isn't up to the quality of most of what Megadeth has written prior, but really, comparing this to "Peace Sells" or "RIP" would be ridiculous because it's not in the same league.

That being said, it is still a worthy album to bear the Megadeth logo and definitely outshines Metallica's self-titled album. Nothing about this album sounds serious, almost as if it were meant to be a joke, or a parody. The whole thing just feels like an episode of Spongebob if he and his nautical friends were to front a Megadeth satire band.

This is the point at which Megadeth began to spiral into a self-parodied caricature of their former thrash selves. It seems Mustaine and co. Most of these songs are mildly catchy in a pop-rock sense, and some even have some elements injected into them that make them somewhat interesting or standout. For one, most of the solos are great, as expected with Marty Friedman. As well, Nick Menza's R. I remember the first time I heard that track, my friend and I were in tears laughing.

At least James didn't sound like Freddy Krueger sucking down helium, receiving an enema. This album is certainly competent and much better than what has followed, and may have some good songs and catchy moments, but it is too hard to take seriously in its tamed, commercial nature.

Unfortunately, like many thrash bands in the 90's, Megadeth never really managed to escape the pit of metal inferiority, progressively getting worse and worse each album, only barely scrapping out a decent song or two per album. I'll let that set in. By releasing the ridiculously good Rust in Peace in , Megadeth had achieved the pinnacle of songwriting that the thrash subgenre allowed for.

With it, the band proved capable of interweaving stellar instrumental work within complex arrangements, resulting in a sophisticated product that was nonetheless very catchy and memorable. At that point in time, metal was on the verge of breaking into the mainstream, with Metallica releasing their famed self-titled album in And rivalry-fueled Dave Mustaine, ever-eager to outdo his competitors, decided that the only logical path for his band to take was to also expand their sound into a more accessible format.

The result was Countdown to Extinction. Countdown to Extinction had its eyes on the grand prize of radio airplay and fame. As a result, the band has sacrificed most of the complexity that had accompanied Rust in Peace in favor of a more streamlined and polished sound.

The songs are primarily straightforward four-minute rockers, sporting an emphasis on catchy guitar hooks, vocal lines and choruses. Despite this sharp turn in style and simplification of sound, however, the album's attitude still screams "Megadeth! Mustaine's snarl hasn't lost its edge, and neither have the instrumental capabilities of Ellefson, Friedman and Menza who don't waste the opportunity to show off their prowess every now and then.

The solo in Symphony of Destruction is still among the finest the band ever put out, whereas the tasteful opening bassline to the title track and the drum solo in closer Ashes in Your Mouth are successful as well. Even ridiculous-yet-cool design decisions such as the "Hello me, meet the real me! In addition, a high degree of consistency is achieved throughout the record's eleven songs, which successfully prevent this from being a singles album. The band hasn't entirely lost touch with its past self, as there are a few moments which remind us of older Megadeth.

Captive Honour, on the other hand, features a pretty complicated riff that almost sounds like a lead. If there are songs I'd criticise, one would be Foreclosure Of A Dream, which simply doesn't manage to be interesting. Also, High Speed Dirt, despite being decidedly catchy and upbeat, is about the quite dull and un-metal subject of skydiving.

Overall, Countdown's crowning achievement is that it successfully breaks into radio-play territory without sacrificing the integral ingredients that make the music Megadeth and not some other band. Do listen. In his quest to beat Metallica Dave has done the drastic, he released an extremely mareketable album. Not really a sellout album It does a fairly good job of making a more marketable sound and still having it sound like a Megadeth album and for the most part is a good album.

Lyrically I feel Dave decided to add some new topics beyond his usual war, death and conspireacy. A bold move as it helps him share more of his worldly views and might get Megadeth into circles where they weren't present before and adding a layer that people can more easily relate to. Global awareness, Countdown to Extinction suicide, High Speed Dirt and mortgage troubles Foreclosure of a Dream have all been introduced. More melodic singing emphasizes the flaws in Dave's voice to a point where his natural charisma no longer covers it completely up, his vocals are still alright off the most part but a few tracks fall short Captive Honour.

The guitar has almost completely traded its quick calculated riffs for slower more melodic riffs. This works out pretty well for the boys, the technicality is missed but the melody works just fine. There are also now guitar hooks added into the choruses.

The solos are much slower but again add in another layer of melody. Forclosure of a Dream adds in a acoustic sections to fit as a ballad, ballads aren't new to Megadeth's music but they make more sense here. The drumming is slowed down and simplified. This really is a shame as its performance simply isn't as good now. The mixture of complexity and pounding did a lot for the performance and it simply doesn't sound right now. It also pounds a lot less to help with melody within the songs.

I don't remember the bass doing much besides rounding out the sound and providing the basic backbone. No, this isn't the Black Album and I'm sure many a metalhead like it far more however in the terms of competing with Metallica for popularity was a wasted effort Black Album sold 16 million copies in the U. Megadeth will always matter to me, no matter what.

Even if I completely detach myself from the whole metal thing in general which isn't wholly unrealistic , a part of me will always be loyal to Mustaine and Co. But it's not exactly blind hero worship; I've been awfully critical of the 'deth plenty of times, then and now, and if need be I can and will wag a finger or two at them for any questionable decisions they would undertake.

And it was with that in mind that, when looking back at their breakthrough wrecking ball, I found not only their biggest album to date but, in my humble opinion, their most deplorable As history would denote, this ended up being a turning point for the band in a few different ways, not all of which are for the better. Made during in era in which Dave and crew tried their damnedest to go clean, "Countdown This resulted in a fine listen in its own right, as one can be able to discern actual notation and riffing schemes without needing a compass to cut through the chaos that came from their earlier, drug-fueled mayhem.

The guitar work had a lot of sleek sharpness in both rhythm and lead work albeit sounding somewhat dry in tone , the drumming was top notch and straightforward with no missteps, and Dave's vocals were some of the best he'd ever given us actually learning how to be a vocalist will do that And the songs themselves? Well, I don't think I have to tell you. It really did seem like a new beginning for the band, the best possible example of maintaining your original sense of relevance while being able to snag in new, different listeners in the process.

But on the other hand, and I am quite loathe to say this despite all the positivity I've given it, this was really when the band seemed to lose their original burning spirit. Focus was diverted from making true, genuine works of bitter art to being the star of the show admitted by Mr.

Mustaine, no less As a result, this is the one album of their entire discography I can claim to actually dislike. Yes, above "Cryptic Writings", "The World Needs a Hero" and even "Risk", for with those three I can accept what they are and find even a modicum of enjoyment. But in the end, with "Countdown And at the risk of somehow ducking the real reasons behind my personal angst, I can't exactly say what it is about it that really digs at me.

There's something inexplicably wrong with this, some necessary yet ultimately invisible ingredient missing from the recipe, and as a result i just plain do not like this album. Not at all. In the end this is, while a very competent affair, something I cannot bring myself to listen to again. If ever there was a face for a personal "worst Megadeth album", this would easily be it, and the one album of theirs that has since been deleted from my personal collection and history.

But hey, at least the single live tracks aren't that bad This is a pretty well-executed album. None of these songs are really bad, and the band does a good job on their instruments. The problem is that the music ends up sounding similar and seldom very exciting.

There are a few excellent songs on here, but there's also some less than ideal songs. To go along with this, when a song fails it makes the rest of the music more repetitive. The production is also partially at fault. The production on this album is technically good. I would be surprised if this wasn't completely state of the art when this came out. The problem is that it's very dry and mechanical. Some bands make this work, but most don't.

It essentially makes the whole album sound processed, like this was crafted in a boardroom meeting or something. This is possibly the most negative atmosphere I've ever heard, and most songs are dragged down by it. Credit where it's due, the instruments and vocals are mixed pretty well. This wasn't done cheaply, but neither really were the last two.

You could pretty much hear everything on the last two as well, without this cold feeling. Ditto on the remaster for Peace Sells. As to the more repetitive aspect, most of this album spends its time in the same pace. None of this is very fast, but very little of this is slow either. It's pretty much all mid-paced, but without the mayhem.

This means that when a song fails, your attention turns to what goes into the song itself. By the second or third failure, you start to realize how similar the music is to each other. On Rust, you didn't have this problem. For one, there was more variety contained, and for two, it was mostly excellent.

This really isn't particularly gripping music. The soloing is still technical, but even the riffing feels samey. There also isn't near the anger or passion present on some of the earlier material. As to the song quality, most are alright at least. I'm partial to Aggression, My Life, and Psychotron, but there's some other songs of close or similar quality.

The songs I'm much less fond of are Skin and Sweating, but they aren't particularly bad. This is an odd album in the sense that what you enjoy isn't going to be consistent. The songs are all pretty similar, with very little distinguishing between them. I wouldn't recommend hearing this all at once, as the similarity is odd the first time. I would suggest hearing this in pieces the first time around in order to notice the differences.

The playing itself is pretty good. Friedman is still very technical and catchy with his soloing. The riffing is more samey than it has ever been. This is a far cry from the variety seen on the earlier albums. Mustaine's vocals aren't helped by the improved production.

The increased clarity and slowing down of the music, has intensified the effect of his vocals, and not for the better. The bass is more prominent, but he doesn't do any more than he usually does. I really don't even think he's more audible, it's just that the guitars don't sound as different from the guitars as they have in the past. The very mechanical feel means that everything sounds somewhat bassy. The drumming is not really special. Menza doesn't hit it as hard as usual, so instead he leans on his technical acumen.

The problem is that his fills just aren't that creative. I think most of his fills were pretty stock in the 70's, let alone early 90's. For all these flaws, it's still a good album. This is probably the peak of Mustaine's lyrical acumen, which mostly alleviates his vocal problem. Aggression is legitimately interesting from a certain angle.

It's not insightful, but it's pretty good as a statement of the times. The soloing is still very good, as good as could be found at the time. This is probably the third best Megadeth ever did, so it is worth a listen. This is more a heavy than thrash album, but I'd recommend both try it. Each individual can sort out which songs they like the most, and then they can rip those songs. Alright, here we go Countdown to Extinction.

For the uninitiated, this album receives a lot of criticism, particularly from diehard Megadeth fans for its foray into more mainstream appeal. It has often been cited as "Megadeth's Black Album". That statement isn't entirely accurate nor do I see it as derogatory, having thoroughly enjoyed the Black Album personally. Youthanasia could be rightly compared to the Black Album, but this album still has traces of thrash, or at least thrash influences throughout.

For the VERY uninitiated, this was also the followup to Megadeth's triumphant masterstroke Rust In Peace, and expectations were absolutely through the roof. Therefore, I will try my best to review this as a standalone product unless I feel a comparison is absolutely necessary. That's enough history lessons, though. Without further adieu, my review of Countdown to Extinction. The absolute first thing that hit me with this album - and one of my big immediate problems with it - was the production.

When I first got a taste of Countdown, I was listening to it on a pair of mediocre quality headphones, so I assumed it was just the headphones themselves. I decided I would give it a try in mono on my boombox, and sure enough it wasn't the headphones. This album has very poor production. The drums are too sharp, the vocals sound washed over, the solos are grating, and the contrast is very poor bass guitar? What bass guitar?

If I had to make an honest recommendation, get the remaster. The production on the original is very unpleasant to listen to I remember wincing several times the first time I heard Sweating Bullets. I know production isn't easy or cheap, but Rust In Peace had a lower budget and managed to sound great.

Songwriting is actually a fair bit better than some of Megadeth's previous albums. The focus has been taken off of speed and more on writing and melody, and Countdown to Extinction benefits from it nicely. There are cheesy bits the courtroom "scene" on Captive Honour is so out of place it almost feels comedic in spots , but songs like Symphony of Destruction and Architecture of Aggression have some great memorable lyrics.

Dave Mustaine still has the old chip on his shoulder and he takes it out as much as ever on Countdown to Extinction. Once again, no one is safe. The only track of which I don't like his vocals on is Sweating Bullets. His snarling is very over-exaggerated and he really sounds like a cartoon character.

The atmosphere on Countdown to Extinction is very foreboding rather than straight-up vicious like on older albums such as So Far, So Good So What? The slower riffs, tight drum fills, and carefully structured instrumentation really add to this feel. The old Mustaine sounded like he would bite your head off if you came too close, but this Mustaine sounds more like he's just biding his time, waiting for you to step out of line.

The themes on most of the songs are just "new Megadeth, same as the old Megadeth". Dave Mustaine doesn't like politicians, he doesn't like the rules, and most of all he doesn't like you. But what's this? On the album's title track, something entirely new comes to the table, an environmental message warning us of the consequences of hunting? This track actually won Megadeth an award from an ecological society for its dark prediction about the extinction of species. Needless to say, that is decidedly un-Megadeth.

It's delivered with the usual dark lyrics and violent imagery, but overall is still very new for the band and I'll still take it any day over the far right wing drivel that permeates United Abominations or Endgame. Before I wrap this up, I'll go over some personal highlights. Despite the overdone vocals, Sweating Bullets actually has some very good lyrics, but in terms of tracks that you will walk away remembering, Architecture of Aggression is this album's highlight and centerpiece.

The riffs are absolutely amazing, the drums tight as hell, and the lyrics are very cheesy and over the top, but in a rather cool way. Overall, I'd recommend this album to a person who was getting into Megadeth but wasn't a diehard thrash fan. We are once again in an election year.

Only couldn't be more removed from in regards to politics, music, and politics in music. Take Dave Mustaine, current conservative mouthpiece of non-factual hatred towards our sitting president, the same man who twenty-years earlier released this forty-seven minute piece of left-leaning post-thrash that eventually won him a humane award for its lyrical content.

Seems almost comical in hindsight but there's no getting around how critical Countdown To Extinction is of everything Mustaine has since lovingly embraced, whether its politics, economics, the environment, or faith, old-school Mega-Dave and new-school Christian-Dave couldn't be more different. But all that is really beside the point: music is our business and the music is mostly okay.

Things start falteringly with "Skin O' My Teeth," a speedier, up-tempo number that's barely a patch on what Megadeth was doing previously. With a stale left-over flavor, "Skin O' My Teeth" would've been b-side material at best previously and here its opening an album.

Following this though is a multi-song run of brilliance starting with "Symphony Of Destruction. It was everywhere at the time: commercial rock radio, underground radio, MTV, etc. Think about that for a second. Think about the simple yet frighteningly effective and memorable riffs from this song.

Think about Dave's menacing snarl and the utter conviction he brings to these lyrics. This is heavy shit and back in the 90's, you actually had a chance to hear this music. Or better still, "Sweating Bullets," another huge track that was everywhere. And again, big-time staccato machine-gun style riffing and double-bass towards the finish with Dave's weird-voices "I'm crazy" lyrics and odd vocal delivery make this one of the heaviest songs to find minor mainstream acceptance.

Most metalheads push back against this brief and utterly minimal flirtation with mainstream rock culture but the omnivorous devourment of diverse musics in the 90's helped many people in rural areas like myself discover metal. I do understand how they would tremble before the nauseating slickness of "Foreclosure Of A Dream.

The clean tone guitar picking, vapid chugs, and Dave's nasal whine hitting obscene heights all make this track a strong indicator of Megadeth's impending and terminal decline. A skid into mediocrity accelerated by a mundane title track and stultifyingly moronic "This Was My Life," lifeless midtempo tracks aimed at amiability and radio rock aesthetics.

I find "High Speed Dirt" comical as well. What a joke of a song. Things do pick up towards the finish as "Psychotron" rips a serrated riff and a monstrous headbanging groove with sharp leads and a perfectly goofy Deathlok theme. And "Ashes In Your Mouth" has a nice syncopated groove, choppy riffs, and brilliant fretwork with an infectious chorus. It's a strong note on which to close. There's also "Architecture Of Aggression," easily the best song on the record. I mention it last because it really highlights the strength of Megadeth's songwriting while demonstrating their commitment to remain metal in the face of commercialization.

From the opening gunfire and rising synths through the shredding RIP-ish guitar riffs and solos, hard pounding drum fills, and menacing chorus, this track makes clear that Megadeth still have the thrash fire in their bellies. Had they stuck to those guns a little harder and not chased Metallica so much, their rep might not have ended up so quickly in tatters.

In retrospect, Countdown To Extinction is Megadeth in transition. Unlike their peers in Metallica and Anthrax, they didn't completely abandon their roots with this record, choosing instead to graft solid metal structures onto a more hybridized arena rock format, stipulating a post-thrash sound not entirely mired in posturing grooves, alternative navel-gazing or strutting cock-rock cliche.

And they did it on the backs of four of the best songs they've ever written in "Symphony Of Destruction," "Sweating Bullets," "Psychotron" and "Architecture Of Aggression. Follow-up Youthanasia is actually a better all-around record than this, though the highs here are so much higher.

I had originally heard of Megadeth because of this album so I really can't talk shit about it too much oh wait, yes I can. However, once I got my hands on some Peace Sells I do have to commend Megadeth on this effort though. Because believe me, they could have gone so much softer and more commercial than whats presented on this album for With Nirvana and those fuckheads Metallica coming out with Nevermind actually a good album and Black Album a steaming pile of dog shit respectively, thrash was basically killed off and became a dying race.

Move over for death metal and grunge. You had your turn on the merry-go-round. It was a nightmare for thrashers everywhere who thought our genre would last into the 90s. Even though I think this album is still a high quality Megadeth album I've always had my qualms about it. It seemed losing the thrash tag and trying to lengthen their reign into the new decade was the thing to do for thrash bands but, that's not really what metal is about Isn't metal loved in a die-hard way because their bands and fans refuse to give up their principles and answer to no higher power?

You're not supposed to make compromises in a thrash metal band! Especially with your music! Why all of the sudden just because of a new genre of music rears its ugly head in the early 90s did metal bands try to emulate it and try to become something they're not? We gotta sound like that now to be successful!

At least, to me, it showed not even Megadeth were safe from the commercial, everyone-copy-whatever-Metallica-or-Nirvana-does-or-you-won't-be-a-success fad in the 90s that plagued and claimed so many other thash bands in its wake thank god we have death metal and black metal. The songs are extremely catchy and well-written but I would say only half or maybe even less than half can be considered thrash metal songs.

The sound is produced well, but for all you thrashers out there that are looking for a Black Friday or Five Magics level of insanity in the songs and raw production, stay away. As for musicianship the guitars and vocals by Dave are the best on the album even if the guitar work has been dumbed down since Rust in Peace. Mustaine can still write riffs that's for sure.

The Rust in Peace drumming shits all over this. The bass is also uninspiring although the tone suits the music. This is one of the faster, upbeat songs on the album and has a wide intervallic solo from Friedman. Simple riff yet so very effective. One fo the stronger tracks and a perfect opener. Symphony of Destruction is very plodding and the verse riff sounds like they came up with it at the last minute. The bridge and chorus is cool though with the descending arpeggios.

I've played this one over so many times and heard it too much. Architecture of Aggression is one of my favorite tracks on the CTE. The riffs are played with calculated accuracy and Dave is no longer straining himself in the vocal department as he would occasionally on Rust in Peace.

Throughout the whole album Dave adopts a lower singing style approach without losing the edge or grit in his delivery, something I wish he would do today since his voice sounds like Spongebob nowadays. Anyways, Architecture is the song on this album I find gets stuck in my head the most.

There's time changes, thoughtful lyrics, riffs, as always, and two realy solid solos by Marty. A highlight for sure. Foreclosure of a Dream is also very catchy and alternates between clean verses and hard driving choruses. Once again, Dave delivers vocally on this song perfectly, putting plenty of feeling into the performance. The clean guitars and harmonized leads are great too.

I'm not too fond of the meaning of the song but I can let that slide. It just goes to show that political messages, liberal or conservative, should never be more important than the music being played.

Sweating Bullets. What can I say. Genius song about schizophrenia and losing your sanity. Best lyrics on the damn album. Some people say they can't stand Dave's vocals on this one but I think they're funny as hell and delightfully evil. Listen to the solo and the riffs after it. So damn heavy. This one never gets old no matter how many times I play it. Mankind has gotta know Really simple, unimpressive solo by Mustaine. Just a few notes on the E string and thats it.

Phantom Lord clean part alert! Countdown to Extinction is just ok too. It tries to be Foreclosure of a Dream but falls short. It tries to be bombastic or dynamic but in the end is too held back for its own good.

High Speed Dirt has very good riffs but is too happy. Psychotron is a mid paced chugger with numerous extended solos by Marty. Highly recommended. Captive Honour, along with AoA, are my two favorite songs on here. For some reason on this song, the tone is much harsher and just adds to the music. This is perhaps the only true thrash song on the album. The riffs are played at breakneck speed and goes from a heavy shred rhythm to a melodic Maiden-esque progression towards the end.

A final cadenza by Nick and the album's done. This I think is the last Megadeth album that I can listen to all the way and not skip a track. The majority of the songs are strong but are nowhere near what they could have been if Megadeth would have stuck to their roots instead of becoming plaid-clad-warriors.

As time would go on, my interest waned with Megadeth's future releases. Youthanasia is basically Countdown Part II but even more commercial. I have the biggest love-hate relationship with this album because the songs and delivery are there and they mean well but you cannot deny this is where Megadeth stopped saying to themselves: How can we top our last album?

How can we become something better than what we accomplished a year or two ago? If I may add one more thing: Now you can agree or disagree with me, I personally don't care but I think Marty Friedman was responsible for the "demise" of the classic Megadeth.

I've seen interviews, listened to the music, and did my homework. Go ahead look up the video on Headbangers Ball that shows Countdown being produced and Rikki Rachtman interviews the guys. Marty says he had no input, save for the solos, on RIP. On Countdown he said he had way more input. I'm not trying to sound like an elitist here but why do you think Iron Maiden kicked out Dennis Stratton after the first album?

The guy hated the more harder edged songs and preferred softer rock AOR stuff. Why do you think they kicked Glen Matlock out of the Sex Pistols? Cause he raved about the Beatles way too damn much. Because George Lynch can't write a metal lick to save his life. I love George Lynch's playing, but he's not metal at all. He was in Dokken for fuck's sake. Can you imagine Lynch trying to come up with songs that could hold a candle to Diary of a Madman?

Yeah right. And I'm Mary Queen of Scots. The music speaks for itself. As soon as he got a little leeway to give his share, he softened the band with his "rock" riffs and sub-par contributions.
