I can understand the infectious part, because I'm not gonna sit here and try and act true and say I got into Five Magics or Poison Was The Cure before Holy Wars, Hangar 18, etc. It's just after truly appreciating the "infectious" songs, I really started to dig those other ones, and they became infectious themselves. It's all taste really, still can't comprehend it though

Oh and Dawn Patrol kicks ass

I think Five Magics, Poison and Lucretia all have their particular charm that makes them at worst "very good." I can concede that being on the high of the first three tracks is part of the enjoyment, but I think on their own they stand up just fine.

Rust in peae is epic. My favorite Megadeth album is Pace Sells, and id give at least seven of their albums an 8 at the very least. Megadeth have a hugely strong catalogue with very few weakpoints.

It might seem funny to some but to me the true test of a band and their catalog is what songs go on a mix cd. If you were to make a cd of Megadeth's best songs most would come from the early cd's for me.

Personally my mix would have at least 2-3 songs of Killing is my Business and I doubt any cd after Extinction would have that many for me. I have a live version of Devil's Island that is godly and would have a hard time not putting songs like Black Friday & My Last Words on there.

80% of my cd would come from 4 albums and at least 2 from So Far, So Good, So What and probably 2 from Youthanasia leaving little space for anything else. I'm thinking Trust and HeadCrusher and maybe Almost Honest.

With some bands 1 cd isn't enough and I'm thinking Megadeth might have reached that level with Endgame. I'll throw it back in after the Gojira show and see.

So this album totally blew away my expectations. Definitely better than both UA and TSHF in my opinion. Shit is rockin'. I love 44 Minutes.
