    Everything is correct but no way Endgame is inferior to Cryptic Writings.

    Also, some bad opinions here. Seriously, The World Needs A Hero over The System Has Failed? Do you really put Moto Psycho over Kick the Chair?

    This is also my gripe with the album. There is some quality guitar work by the new guy scattered around but that's all the album has for me.

    I listened to the first two tracks yesterday. But that's about it. I liked the second track. I'll give it a more thorough listen tonight.

    Yeah, moto psycho is definitely one of their worst tracks. Kick the Chair kicks ass.

    I love Cryptic Writings, i think it's better than everything they've done since. On ly track on there that i would consider weak is Mastermind.

    Possibly controversial(?): Walpurgisnacht is the best bm-album from Greece.

    I've been thinking about this album recently, and you might be correct at least until Endgame or Dystopia. I will have to listen again in the context of all their other albums. I can say that CTE doesn't hit me like it used to so that may slip in my list..

    I was huge on Greek BM a few years ago, meaning RC, Necromantia and Varathron. I relistened to all the "classic" albums by the bands, and I agree Varathron is the best. Rotting Christ only got better and Necromantia is shit.

    Tbh, the Greek bm album I cant stop listening to is Spectral Lore's III

    The best track on Dystopia is the instrumental

    Oh shit, i thought you were talking about TWNAH there ... to which i would have completely agreed.

    I love this new ignore system, keeps me from seeing anything from blocked users.

    You actually block people? You think TWNaH is over produced and has a weird vocal effect on Dave's voice? Okay...

    wtf. Yes, only one person though. So?

    I'd rather block people than "report" them(which is what most you pansies here do) like a little bitch.

    Unless i'm missing something, your quote that i said agreed with was this ...

    "There is some quality guitar work by the new guy scattered around but that's all the album has for me."

    no? That statement can easily be applied to TWNAH.

    edit: But yes, i think it is indeed overproduced. That doesn't really bother me much though.

    Poisonous Shadows track sucks indeed. And it clocks up 6 minutes.

    I think it's the best sophomore album by any of the three major Greek bands but I like all their debuts more.

    Ah ok. So you couldn't see what Omni wrote even when I quoted it. Huh. Omni said it was overproduced and his voice had a weird effect on it, which I agreed with. I pointed out one high point on the album however.

    I don't know what that "you pansies" comment was in reference to, but I've never clicked the Report button.

    Because unlike Sabbat and your other favorite meme-thrash bands, Megadeth at their best actually had great riffs.

    meme-thrash?

    I feel like you're on the wrong board to be bashing Sabbat (this is more than once I've noticed) but the right board to do it might actually ban you for it. Take your shots where they're allowed I guess.

    I've never been much of a fan of Megadeth but I suppose I "get it" and I even own a couple of their early albums. Killing is my Business would be my favorite if I could find a first press that didn't have the butchered and censored version of "These Boots" or it omitted completely, which bothers me because I know it's supposed to be there...

    This is all off topic any way...

    Find all of my posts about Sabbat. Oh, there are none. You love making shit up when people don't have the same opinions as you.

    I actually do like some Megadeth albums. That doesn't change the fact that their recent output is more vigorously defended in most circles than most other old thrash acts without any real justification.

    lol, apparently I confused Dodens' post in the top 3 thrash thread with yours. Regardless, you consider Breaking the Silence a top 3 thrash album, so that still invalidates any opinion you hold on early Megadeth being incomprehensibly overrated.
