    Great creation of songs overall, I enjoyed the remastered. This is a very strong album, showing their intensity and 100% proof that the system failed however that’s where Megadeth succeeded. Notable Songs: Back In the Day Kick The Chair Tears In a Vial The Scorpion Die Dead Enough

    There should be a mental aptitude test people have to complete in order to post anything online.

    Megadeth has been a politically charged band since Peace Sells...But Who’s Buying? Anyone who doesn’t understand that either has their head buried between their knees or is a casual fan. The System Has Failed is everything that The World Needs A Hero should of been! Heavy, thrash oriented songs along the lines of Rust in Peace mixed in with more accessible songs that would of felt right at home on Countdown/Youth/Cryptic Writings. Chris Poland is back holding down soloing duties after being away from the band since recording Killing Is My Business and Peace Sells. Chris does an excellent job soloing over Mustaine’s intricate riffs. The blistering drumming is handled by Vinnie Colaiuta who has worked with Frank Zappa, Jeff Beck and Sting just to name a few. Overall a solid effort by Megadeth that has stood the test of time!
  • Still too political

    I didn't enjoy it in 2004. I mean, having Bush being judged on the front of the album is funny, but it's hard to take it seriously, insofar as lyric content. We get it, Dave. You hated Bush. We all hated Bush. Bush wanted oil, and Haliburtan was not a good thing. We get that. It sounds like this album was written to explain everything from 9/11 to Shock & Awe to today's elementary school kids. It was just ... plain. "Here's what happened. I didn't like it. You shouldn't either. Here's a guitar solo..." I feel like Dave wrote these songs while watching CNN, angry about the war on TV, but then his label was like, "You need to water this down." So he did. And that was that. Or, maybe, Dave just got into writing simple lyrics with simple rhymes. All the songs are pretty much political. It's almost like a concept album for a Social Studies report. But, for me, this was compounded by a lack of catchy metal hooks. There are no guitar parts that are memorable for me, here. There are no drum parts that grab me. It's like Dave was listening to some political punk, and said, "Gee, I can do a metal version of this stuff!" So he did. And ... eh. I didn't like it. It just felt uninspired to me.
