Sound — 10
When I first heard this band in 03 my mind was blown. Their sound all around is amazing, one of the best With Mustaine singing and on guitar it made me feel like I didn't know metal at all. So when I heard that they were coming out with a new album in 06, I was freaking out. And when I heard it I was sure I flashed back to that day when I heard them for the first time, with amazing lyrics, amazing guitars, amazing bass, amazing drums, amazing solos, amazing everything. I'm comvinced that this band pisses excellence.

What more is there to say besides Dave Mustaine? He's a lyrical god. With songs in the past like 99 Ways To Die, Holy Wars... The Punishment Due, Peace Sells, and others; I was blown away when hearing the lyrics. His vocals are just amazing and agressive. His lyrics seem to revolve around political reasons though.
Overall Impression — 10
Well lets just say all their albums were better than Risk, and in my opinion were far better than almost all of Metallica's albums. The most impressive songs from this album are Blessed Are The Dead, Washington Is Next, Sleepwalker, and Gears Of War. I love the hole album it's amazing far better than The World Needs A Hero and the System Has Failed. If I lost it or someone stole it I would deffinatly buy another copy, hell, I'd buy a few spairs.
