So I 'acquired' Endgame last night... It is brilliant. Best album since Countdown To Extinction probably, although United Abominations was pretty damn good too.

The opening track 'Dialectic Chaos' is 2:25 minute instrumental, and is wickedly amazing with intense riffage and lightning fast solos.

'Dialectic Chaos' fades into the second track, 'This Day We Fight!', which is a pretty damn awesome track.

The third song '44 Minutes' is probably my least favourite. It has an awesome intro and awesome solos, but the lyrics were a big let down.

The fourth song, '1,320' is simply amazing, one of the best tracks on the album. Nothing bad to say about it.

My favourite track, the fifth, 'Bite The Hand' is truly awesome, with monstrous 80s riffage and extreme solos.

'Bodies', the sixth track is one of my favourites too.

I can't be bothered writing more about the rest, but that does NOT mean they are not good... They are all amazing.

I'd rate the album probably 8.5/10...

Definitely worth a thousand listens.

I've got it and given it a few listens now. I wouldn't use the word "amazing," but it is pretty darn good -- better than his last one for sure. :twisted:

I agree, UA gave Dave merit again. He wrote some excellent riffs and hooks for the album and his lead player didn't let him down in the least. "Sleepwalkers" told me that Dave Mustaine still has the metal in his blood.

There is some great playing and it's nice and heavy but I can't seem to latch onto much for some reason. Maybe I've been listening to them for so long that it just doesn't stick out for me. It's not one of those albums that I can listen to twice in a row. I listen to it and have had enough for a few days. I have already came to the point where I was going to put it in and decided to put in another cd. Actually it has been the new Shadows Fall cd I've been popping in lately. In parts that cd gets me going. Especially the songs at the end. One is a actually a cover of Bark at the Moon.

People may hate me for saying this but I think he is just following the Metallica band wagon again. They put out a back to the roots type cd so again Mustaine has to follow their lead and put out a more back to the roots cd. It's time to let it go!

Again for me it just didn't work. Maybe he tried to hard. Great riffing and the lead playing is awsome but the songs were just average for me. Just my own opinion!

I guess my biggest problem with "United Abominations" was the lyrics and subject matter. Thinking back on it, the CD does have some very tasty riffs, but I couldn't get into the whole anti-UN subject matter..... :?

Skipped it through once. At least the mixing on Endgame beats Death Magnetic, by FAR. Will listen to it properly, even though I am not usually a Megadeth fan.

He was really excited to do that, and you can hear a clear difference in tone between Chris´s and Daves tone so for leads i think he used it! :)

The tone of Chris' leads doesn't exactly suit Megadeth if you compare it to earlier albums...
