Get a fucking clue yourself. Please explain how you know when Mustaine/Megadeth has poured his/their heart and soul into one of their records? They might have half assed it for United Abominations(an ok record imo) and went balls out for Risk(which I agree sucks). True that Death Magnetic's riffs are somewhat bland or lack inspiration. And its still a better CD than anything that Megadeth has put out this decade. If you took all the good songs from Megadeth's CD's this decade you'd have 1 very good CD. I'm not a huge Metallica fan by any means. Both of these bands have been passed by years ago.
