Sound — 8
This one of the best produced albums to be put out by Megadeth. I love the sound of the guitars on this one! This Megadeth's first record after their 1999 debatable output "Risk". It's indeed more heavy sounding than a lot of their 90's stuff. It does have some more commercial and radio friendly sounding songs on it. Think of "Moto Psycho" and "1000 Times Goodbye".

The lyrics are in some points very sharp and even funny and some of em are little bit weaker.
Overall Impression — 7
Overall, this album doesn't really compare to their other records. It is stronger than risk and I prefer it over the system has failed. I do think "TSHF" is a better record but I love the sound of this record. I love the title track and promises. I hate losing my senses and I worship disconnect. I think this is a pretty decent record. But the other review gave it a score that way to high.
