    It's the solos, they're the worst on any Megadeth album. Bleep, bleep, bleep, sweep picking frenzy like a fucking video game.

    Dark Angel - Darkness Descends

    Title track is great, but then it just tapers off into boring tedious songs. Not so much flawed I guess as it is just a disappointing album that has so much promise based on the first track.

    If you can handle Immortal vocals you can handle this.

    This is great music/ bad vocals:



    o.k.

    Ive been looking forward to this all year as well. It just doesnt seem to have any structure. I think this would have been much better if they had just made a regular split instead of a collaboration. It sounds like material has been made for a split and then just mashed into one crazy song. The vocals also dont sound as cool as they did on Zwischen Leere und Nichts. Sounds a bit like an eight year old trying to do black metal vocals.

    Part of me likes this, but part of me doesn't. I'm not sure what I think yet.

    That album would be great if it had more than one song.

    Nothing about that fucking abomination is excusable. Parts of "Blinded by Fear" are decent, but I loathe every second of it on principle alone. Only Alf Svensson AtG is real.

    I like the album (and consider Megadeth as my favorite band) but I do find the solos unmemorable. The worst part however has to be the boring and uninspired drums. Man, Mustaine needs to get rid of that Drover guy and get someone with soul and feeling that can create a groove.

    I find it hard to believe people find Endgame worse than United Abominations. Christ, the Drover brothers don't belong in that band.

    I actually don't mind Endgame... actually own the CD. But aside from Rust In Peace and KIMB (which are great), Megadeth is pretty meh anyways tbh.

    Endgame is wayy better than United Abominations.

    i like everything from Megadeth besides The World Needs a Hero and the horrid Risk, and to think about it, those are the only two albums worse than UA... i even like Youthanasia, which is one of my favorite albums of the 90's and Cryptic Writings, which most people thought were weak.

    and RiP, SFSGSW, KiMB > any of Slayers albums.

    TWNAH and Risk are better than UA, though I'm probably one of the few who thinks that.

    serious? ... sometimes i refuse to acknowledge Risk as a Megadeth album.

    and on another note, i think Megadeth has been doing better with their recent albums than Slayer.
