So, it was, perhaps in 1994, that a sad day presented itself. I lost interest in Megadeth. Honestly, I think I had Testament and Overkill left that I could kind of rely on to produce quality thrash albums. Strangely, I actually even forgot Megadeth existed. Not the classic albums (Peace Sells...; So Far, So Good; Rust In Peace); they'dalways have a place in heart and memory. I kept seeing their CDs in the shop, but decided it wasn't the same band. However, 2001 arrived, and rumour had it that Megadeth had returned to their roots (2003 and St. Anger hadn't made me cycnical of such things yet). I became interested. I was mad. Still, 2004 arrived and, foolishly at the time, decided to listen to The System Has Failed. Well, my jaw can't literally fall to the floor but, if such a mechanism existed, it would have done. Almost perfect in every way, 'my' Megadeth was back. 2006 and news of this album, United Abominations. Could Dave really do it again; come up with a thrash album as good as the previous. No. He bettered it. Despite the internet ablaze with condemnation of the re-recording of A Tout Le Monde (which I like for the record), this has to be the best thrash (or speed metal if you prefer) album in a long time (sorry, Machine Head are not thrash). Again, no song by song nonsense, just buy and enjoy.
