If you are a Megadeth Fan on ANY level you will like this. Like Thrash? You got 2-3 Solid Tracks of it, Like The 90's Era? Oh there is plenty. And even the slow tempo song is made memorable by the fact the message is touching and the music to support it, a real winner if you go into the track wanting to just enjoy music.

Tracks that stand out for me: 44 Minutes, Bite The Hand, Endgame, Headcrusher, The Hardest Part of Letting Go... Sealed With A Kiss, How the Story Ends, The Right to Go Insane.

Endgame, the song, sounds like it will open their shows.

Basically the whole album is great and an easy to listen through.

As my top 5 Megadeth Albums Rank Currently:
Rust In Peace
Countdown To Extinction
Cryptic Writings

(NOTE* My favorite style of Megadeth is the 90's Style. This may hold bias over my whole little review, but seeing how all Megadeth is Good Megadeth to me, minus So Far... and The World Needs, this is a great album, BUY IT!)
It's nice to see someone enjoys this album a lot. People that I've spoken to seem to thing it's worse than Risk, or that it's one of their worst albums, which is absurd to me in every which way. This album is awesome, and I agree with most of what you said (except you missed "This Day We Fight!" in your staples and you implied So Far is a bad album). I think this album is really awesome, it's already been growing on me for the past day or two that I've had it.
