So we’re finally at the end of Megadeth week! It’s been a great journey filled with exciting news and updates, culminating in Friday’s release and review of their 15th studio album, Dystopia. My review rated the album highly as I was incredibly impressed with the new offering. To put this review into context, I thought I’d run through my top 5 Megadeth albums, in order to see if dystopia made the cut.
5. United Abominations
As mentioned in a previous post; this was the first Megadeth album released after I got in to Megadeth, and probably the first I thoroughly listened to on repeat for days! It undoubtedly had a strong influence on my entire musical tastes, and definitely when it comes to Megadeth. Tracks like Sleepwalker, Washington Is Next, and Play For Blood are standout tracks; with very few that disappoint on the album. There’s also a wealth of guitar solos throughout for the guitarist in me to fall in love with. Maybe not everyone’s favourite, but definitely up there for me.
