Megadeth's 2nd full length studio album is something that I've always been very fond of calling a "classic slab of thrash metal." Right from the get-go, it just rips and shreds through all sorts of occult and political meanderings while displaying a complex yet elegant and refined understanding of thrash metal that was still in relative infancy when this album was made. Only 8 songs, but each and every one of them, even the Jeff Beck cover "I Ain't Superstitious" are absolutely searing! Some ppl tend not to like Mustaine's vocal style, but if you can get past that, the lyrics are incendiary and the music is like napalm. Thrash metal at its finest.
