Thank the lord for Megadeth! This albums is just as good as their old stuff, maybe better! It's fast, heavy, powerful, and straight up metal. The Drover brothers provide more speed and intensity then previous Megadeth line-ups. The album is speed metal at its finest. If you want something fast and heavy all in one, buy this.

Dave sounds as good as ever. His new vocals on A Toute Le Monde are much better than the original. But his voice does sound a bit gravely throughout the album, but it works with the music. The lyrics are all about governments and authority and politics. Dave speaks to the world, and ticks it off. The aggression is great and will keep you listening.
Overall Impression — 9
This is a great Megadeth album that shows they have not lost a step. It's fast and intense, just what a great metal album should be. The best songs are Washington Is Next, Play For Blood, Gears Of War, and the new A Toute Le Monde with Cristina Scabbia. The other songs are great as well. This album will make you realize everything that is wrong with the world. Dave gets his message across loud and clear. But even better than the lyrics is the fact that some songs have up to ten guitar solos. And they all rock. If this album were stolen, this guy would be mad at the world after listening, and I would be mad at him. If you're a Megadeth fan, buy this album.
