It seems Dave Mustaine has outdone himself again by remixing and remastering every Megadeth album (except for Killing Is My Business, which is already remastered, and their 2001 CD The World Needs A Hero, which I don't really care for anyway)! I bought the remastered RUST IN PEACE yesterday, and my jaw was on the floor when Holy Wars kicked in! Megadeth never really had a very good overall sound, but now that Dave has taken complete control, it sounds amazing! Hangar 18 sounds nothing short of lethal, and pretty much every song sounds so alive and energetic now. Unfortunately, Dave's flawless vocal part to Take No Prisoners dissapeared, forcing him to re-record a vocal track, which sounds nowhere near as good as the original. But I can live with that, since TNP sounds amazing otherwise. As well, every CD comes with a few bonus tracks - RIP includes a short unreleased track, "My Creation", and the demo versions of Rust In Peace, Holy Wars and Take No Prisoners (none of which are particularly good, but it's interesting to see the progress). Anyway, if you have the originals, I would still reccomend buying the remasters. The quantum leap in sound quality is worth it. And plus, now you can hear the bass! Oh yeah, one more thing. The new Megadeth album, The System Has Failed, will be out on September 14! Too bad about David Ellefson leaving though, he was a great fit for 'Deth.
