Album Review: Megadeth: Th1rt3en
The worse I can say about this album is that it's not Endgame. That said it is still really really good.
The best way I can describe this album is by saying its a Megadeth album. It doesn't reinvent the wheel. If you're a fan of the band, you'll probably dig the album. That said it's that same reason that it's not a classic album. Endgame at least for me in a lot of ways sounded ... new and old. This album sounds like some lost 90's cuts, some great lost 90's cuts but still some lost 90's cuts. Again that's not bad if you're a fan of the band. The 90's were arguably when it was in its prime. That said these tracks are all killer and no filler. There wasn't a point in the album where it dragged. Eh I don't know. All in all my detractions come from my feeling that it's not as good as Endgame. It's not bad, but it's not as good as Endgame! There isn't a "44 minutes" in this album, and "44 minutes" was pure awesomeness concentrated into 5.
