Great Song Writing
Love this album. Underrated work from them
Needs the original recordings
iTunes you need to remaster with the original recordings
Dave's vocals are top notch throughout the album, especially on A Tout Le Monde and Victory. This is probably Megadeth's 3rd or 4th best album, but still a classic. All these songs are really good, but I recommend : Reckoning Day, Train of Consequences, A Tout Le Monde, The Killing Road, & Victory.
Great old school deth with tons of melody
This is such a great album - the melodic sound from Countdown to Extinction has been evolved further - less speed, more melody. Great riffs, great guitar licks & hooks and great vocal melodies. Really good album. All songs on here are strong as hell.
Youthanasia is not appreciated as much as the previous realeses because it is slower, but it is still great. The standout tracks are reckoning day, train of conseqences and the title track. Reckoning day and train of consequences
are great thrash metal songs that use a mid tempo
chugging riffs. So is black curtains, which sounds like metalicas sad but true.
The rest of the album is slower and more mainstream. The title track is like a speed metal song that has been slowed down. The solo is awesome.
This album is the last album before Megadeth went commercial with cryptic writings and risk.
Megadeth's "Black" album!
This is the best song writing that Dave and the band ever did. Don't get me wrong, there are great songs on other records like Hangar 18, Symphony, but this album is just fantastic from the beginning to the end. I worked in a music store until they all mostly went down the drain and when my staff heard this record we all thought this was going to be HUGE. This album should have been the start of a major new chapter in the book of Megadeth and had them all over the place. Sadly, grunge had already taken over and this album was very under appreciated. BUY the entire album it does not disappoint!
Not their best, but pretty good. Train of Consequences, A Tout le Monde, and Victory are the best.
Such a great Megadeth album
While the thrash aspect of the band is pretty much missing from this album, the song writing is outstanding. Very catchy, memorable choruses, crazy/awesome riffs and a great production. As someone already noted, this was the last great Megadeth album. Check out “Evolver - The Making of Youthinasia” on youtube for a behind the scenes look at the album being created.
