1990 is a year to be remembered in the history of heavy metal. And it has to be said that the US Megadeth have made a lot for it with the launch of their cataclysmic opus, Rust In Peace. After three albums of good quality the four guys decided to release a (nuclear) bomb that has become a landmark in the metal world.
Dave Mustaine publicly reveals his genius, accompanied by his old mate Dave Ellefson. For this album, Mustaine has hired a new guitarist, Marty Friedman, and a drummer, Nick Menza. The first impression when you hear this album, is its pure, almost uncontrolled strength, that changes every riff into an earthquake.The guitars are omnipresent, they rhythm, without any moment of weakness, the lyrics, resolutely anti military and full of nuclear apocalypse. In this point of view, the excellent ?Holy wars? is a titanic opening. This track can be considered as a symbol of all the rage and determination that the album contains, as it combines heavy repeating riffs and guitar flights. This only track can justify the purchase of this album. Because it's a boost that allows the other tracks to be linked together with a great fluidity.

The year is 1990, and the 80's thrash scene will soon fade into the backdrop. There seems to be no hope for this genre beyond but a few bands, but only one of these bands was needed; Megadeth. Since the last album, Dave have ousted Chuck Behler and Jeff Young, and replaced them with Nick Menza and Guitar Giant Marty Friedman. With Political and Societal themes ready to launch, Megadeth was ready to make their fans Rust in Peace.

You are not going to hear betting riffing without going into muddled, overly technical and gratuitous showing off. A brilliant album. It's just a shame that Megadeth was never able to match it or even come close to it. This is as good as Megadeth, or thrash metal for that matter, can ever be.

Now that was a pointless little comment.


Indeed. I think Dave is an idiot, but that does not prevent this album (or indeed, any of Megadeth's other classic albums) from being great. Same as how Glen Benton being a grade A fool doesn't stop their first few albums from being death metal classics.

Dave Mustaine at a very recent interview he said that when he was playing the RIP songs live in the anniversary tour he was thinking "who was I was trying to impress back then?"... he actually said that. eeermmmm... maybe your fans Dave? who were you trying to impress when writing Super Collider then?
But then, if he had that attitude (who am I trying to impress) nowadays, maybe he would release again masterpieces like this one, or close to this
Not that I complain, he released albums like Endgame and The System has Failed, but no matter how great these albums are, they do not touch RIP or Peace Sells

Totally agreed.Dave can be a douchebag sometimes,he is tyrant and dictator in his band,one word
and whole line up could change within one hour,I don't know,maybe Chris Broderick or Dave Elleffson thought diifferent approach
to the last album but they know Dave has the first and last word,you know waht I mean...
As for this album,a masterpiece beyond belief.

You know, I love thrash, I think Megadeth is pretty good, and I do think this is a great album, however there is one thing I disagree on. This album is #1 on MS? Really? When I hear "Greatest metal album of all time", I don't think of this, nor Megadeth at all. I don't get how anyone could think this is the best album in metal at all. Acts like Edge of Sanity, Agalloch, Opeth, Death, etc. make music that isn't about just your average "angry metal" sound, but go deeper into their music and make some profound connections which I feel makes truly great music that transcends above all others. So yeah, this album is now also #1 on the list of most overrated albums of all time.

So you voted it a 1?

It's called vote abuse, and it's all too common on MS unfortunately

At least Paw is direct with his lack of respect.

I, too, share the same confusion as to why this is the "best album of all time". How it is, however, makes perfect sense: popular band, popular album, lots of votes, voila.

Not really. A very good album but it is overrated a bit. It is not even my favourite Megadeth album.

The funny thing is that he must believe his two 1s / 10s are going to make any impact in the 2000+ votes on said albums. Perhaps he's planning a few more accounts.
