    I like that album a lot but it's nowhere near the best 'Deth album.
    I disagree on Bad Omen. The cover is what it is - which is nowhere near as good as the original "These Boots Are Made For Walking" cover.

    I skip several songs on RIP, though. I don't even skip the cover tune on PS, because the pain is over in two minutes, and Poland does play some cool licks around the meh.

    That's still two minutes I ain't spending listening to that bullshit song.

    You don't skip the cover song, but you skip poison was the cure, eh? LIES.

    It brings up an interesting side discussion though - how often to you put in an album and listen to the whole thing? I always listened to the whole album on Peace Sells because I had the cassette, and it was even before you could fast forward and have it detect the pauses between songs. The advent of CDs made skipping songs easier, and now that it's really just MP3s and streams, the concept of listening to the whole thing in order is a little different. It's easier to skip songs you only kind of like, rather than the old days when you'd just get through them.

    I still do on Albums of my youth and on some lost gems here and there, but even those have "fillers" and that's why I say why keep making Albums with more than 4-5 songs on this day an age? Make 4 to 5 GOOD ones and call it a day, 80-90% of Album songs arent even played Live so who cares?

    Rust In Piece > all other Megadeth albums by a mile.... in part or taken as a whole. At the time Holy Wars came out it almost seemed to predict the beginning of the end, and the solos are timeless. IMHO

    I agree with this. When Whitesnake did the 30th anniversary re-issue of 1987 album, the track order just throws me all off. I've listened to that album in a specific order for 30 years and mixing it up (I know, I know- that was the order outside of the US) just messes up the album for me.

    what a fucking banger

    Countdown is 100% all killer, no filler. Dave Mustaine is a genius and Metallica SUCKS.

    When it comes to the discussion of which is the best thrash album, how can MOP be it when it's not even the best Metallica album? AJFA > MOP.
    Its funny, I checked over at Rate Your Music how Countdown... was classified, and it was actually classed by whoever does all that over there as 'Thrash Metal' and 'Heavy Metal' while RIP got 'Thrash Metal', 'Technical Thrash Metal', 'Heavy Metal'. I think people really get caught up on the technical-ness of RIP which plays a big part as to why its so hallowed. But I have to admit, I kinda think the sound on albums like Countdown... and even Cryptic... worked more for the band. I was actually a bit surprised that Countdown... got thrash associated with it over at RYM. I think probably the purest thrash album Megadeth did though was probably KIMBABIG.

    I actually fall into the camp as well that considers AJFA Metallica's finest hour even though the album has the whole questionable production thing with it and a few other stigmas here and there assigned to it. Actually, I think alot more people have come to really respect the album more as the years have gone by in spite of its controversies.
