I didn't see a thread specifically dedicated to Megadeth here.
I wasn't a huge Megadeth fan back in the day. I only really listened to Countdown to Extinction which I have always thought is a fantastic album. I've actually become more of a fan since I became a Christian. Part of that is probably the interest generated by Dave's conversion. I decided to look through the Megadeth catalogue since Dave became a Christian and started with The System Has Failed. The more I listen to it, the more impressed I am ("The Scorpion" ). It's really a solid album (especially coming from one of the big four in the early 2000s). I went and picked up United Abominations, Endgame, and now Dystopia. The latter is absolutely killer! "Lying in State" is my favorite song from it so far. I really enjoy Dave's lyrics on these albums and that song in particular is so locked in to what is going on in our society today.
I've started to go back and explore the back catalogue some more. I picked up Rust in Peace which most people seem to think is their best album and look forward to jamming it more (I already know "Holy Wars..." and "Hangar 18" are killer). I don't think I can own Peace Sells... or So Far... because of black magic lyrics, but I might just get the songs that don't have those issues. I don't notice any of that on Killing is My Business... so I might pick that one up.
Anyway, here's a place to talk about these things or anything else about Megadeth.
