RiP is great but a bit inconsistent. The better tracks are top notch thrash metal tho.
Name a bad song on that album
Rust in Peace isn't really a thrash metal album, and it shits the bed with Dawn Patrol and the title track, but I agree that the first seven have some of the finest metal songwriting in existence.
Dawn Patrol, Take No Prisoners.
Friedman is the saving grace for that album. Shitty than shit bass tone, crappy guitar tone, Mustaine's awful voice etc etc
I knew you were going to say Dawn Patrol. Dat groove tho.
Take No Prisoners is easily a Top 3 track off the album
No way. Especially when you've got such songs as Holy Wars, Hangar 18 and Tornado. These are top 3 off this record.
Well yeah of course those are up there. You got me. A top 4 then..
Holy Wars, Five Magicks, and Lucretia (DAT groove) are the best.
Also, the guitar tone is awesome and a large part of what made me like it so easily as a kid. So processed and synthetic sounding it could almost fit a vidya soundtrack. Love it, perfect for the hyper-energy hyper-wank mood of the album.
Holy Wars is brilliant. I agree that the rest of the album is a bit inconsistent, though. I'd say Peace Sells is a stronger album overall.
He doesn't have a consistent album to his name. The closest he ever got was with Youthanasia and Cryptic Writings.
Rainbow - Rising
Dio - Holy Diver
Motörhead - Overkill
Ozzy - Blizzard of Ozz
Death - Scream Bloody Gore
Absolute classics imo
all reasonable picks. never got into HOLY DIVER but it's probably due a revisit. i should give more attention to early ozzy too.
Holy Diver is the best heavy metal album ever
I wish TB was around to reply to some of this nonsense about Rust in Peace. I don't have the energy to do a TB impression justice today.
Rising has one classic song and other very good ones, not really strong enough as a full album though. Holy Diver is definitely close to the pinnacle of streamlined metal songwriting. Motorhead is a classic band with no full classic albums imo. Blizzard of Ozz is great, not quite classic. Scream Bloody Gore has too many just-good songs.
wow. Ok then, do:
Diary of a Madman
Ace of Spades
The Last in Line
Coma of Souls
Symbolic is the best of progish-era Death, but also lacks great highs, and is just a refinement on the previous too albums anyways. Coma of Souls is so horrible.
Only Holy Diver from that list is a true classic. Never been able to get into Rising, but probably owe it another shot. Blizzard of Ozz, SBG, and Overkill are very good, but not great.
