Album Description: Risk follows Megadeth's most commercially successful album to date, 1997's Cryptic Writings, which, with four radio hits, wasn't as obscure as the title suggests. Risk doesn't live up to its name, either. The band again teams with producer Dan Huff for a dozen safe, melodic, vaguely metallic tunes. Risk may please Megadeth fans not familiar with the aggressive, progressive, heavier metal of the band's Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? Like Metallica (Megadeth singer-guitarist Dave Mustaine was a founding member), Megadeth has risen into the mainstream. Yet the majority of Risk's songs are not instantly memorable or accessible. "Insomnia," as befitting its title, utilizes unsettling, anxiety-provoking strings to create a powerfully frenetic mood, aided by Dave Ellefson's bass, which blazes throughout (he's especially histrionic on "Time: The End"). Despite the silly title, "Prince of Darkness" is catchy and forceful. "Breadline" is sinister and melodic, while "Crush 'Em," a deliberately executed fist-pumping sports anthem, is simply innocuous. Lacking the crucial rock & roll ingredients of danger and rebellion, Risk ultimately poses no threat. --Katherine Turman More:reviews, rate it or tell your friend about this CD!

MEGADETH - Cryptic Sounds (No Voices in Your Head)
Album Description: In 1996, after Dave Mustaine released his experimental side project, MD.45's The Craving, there were scattered reports about how the metal veteran was turning over a new leaf with a new band. But any circulating rumors of Megadeth's demise have been greatly exaggerated. The group's seventh album Cryptic Writings is its strongest release since 1990's Rust in Peace. Not only are the songs crunchy and confrontational, they're suffused with crafty hooks that make them memorable without detracting from their primal power. Add some acrobatic guitar solos from Mustaine and Marty Friedman, and you've got a record that will unfurrow the brow of anyone who thinks Metallica sold out with Load. Granted, there's not much innovation on Cryptic Writings, but in an age of self-centered angst and watered down Nirvana riffs, Megadeth's unapologetic metal fury is as refreshing as a dip in the pool on a hot summer day. --Jon Wiederhorn More:reviews, rate it or tell your friend about this CD!

Album Description: Megadeth is one of the few metal bands to have successfully handled the transition to the '90s,
and Countdown to Extinction is proof positive; although considerably more streamlined and commercially oriented than their
previous efforts, it's still a fine album, and arguably one of their best. Lead singer and guitarist Dave Mustaine's
lyric-writing has improved, and the results can be heard on "Countdown to Extinction," "Symphony of Destruction,"
"Architecture of Aggression" (it's a rare songwriter who can make a line like that fit in a chorus), and "Foreclosure of
a Dream". This is arena metal at its best; Countdown to Extinction (a reference not to genocide, as one might assume, but
to endangered species) manages the difficult trick of being commercially appealing and musically sound at the same time.

Album Description: With Rust in Peace, Megadeth reached musical maturity. While not as slick and stripped-down as their later releases, it does bring the style developed on their earlier albums-basically, high-speed progressive metal-to a high point. Guitarist and singer Dave Mustaine and guitarist Marty Friedman are in fine form here, making technically complex passages sound easy. The lyrics aren't as smooth, but it's almost not worth quibbling over when the music is so good. It's all gut-wrenchingly aggressive, from "Holy Wars" to "Lucretia" to "Five Magics" to "Dawn Patrol," but "Hangar 18" and the title track are two high points, standing above the rest on what is already a fine album. --Genevieve Williams More:reviews, rate it or tell your friend about this CD!
