Sound — 8
After almost 30 years in the music world, I must say Megadeth still has the magical touch. The songs on this record may not exactly be the best sounding songs out there, but they have their moments. My personal favorite song on this album, overall, is defiantly the title track, which has a In My Darkest Hour sound to it, and sounds a little bit like The World Needs A Hero.

The lyrics are great on this record. They deal with everything from Al Capone to A girlfriend destroying everything. Dave's singing voice hasn't changed much since endgame, and is still ripping on this record.
Overall Impression — 8
This album has definitely been my favorite album of this year, and in every way beats (you can probably guess what I'm gonna say) "Lulu". Overall, this is a great album, with great songs, and I'm loving every bit of it.
