This. Peace Sells was absolutely an evolution, and a brilliant one at that, but progressive?

I'd say the most progressive record of 86 was Somewhere In Time.

If by "the most progressive" you mean "out of Master of Puppets, Peace Sells, Reign in Blood, and Somewhere in Time, the most progressive," but even then I might argue with you on MoP. There was still prog coming out in '86. Hell, Rage for Order by Queensryche is their proggiest record and they're actually a prog metal band.

Dammit! Caught before I could change it back to Pleasure.

Proggressive isn't supposed to represent a sound consisting of non-stop atmospheric keyboards and guitars, it's supposed to be a synonym for avant- garde. For instance Into The Pandemonium is a progressive record to me. All the "prog bands" of the 70's, they were avant garde for their time.

Maybe that definition flew in 1969 but I think it's pretty widely accepted what "progressive" means, and it ain't that.

I don't think the album is progressive at all. It doesn't fit into the sound of the genre. But is was a "progression" for Megadeth. On their first album I feel they hadn't quite figured out their sound yet. But with this one they did. When you compare the first two albums this is one of the best and most positive progression's musically a band has made from one album to the next.

So in some ways it is, but it shouldn't be considered part of the prog metal genre.
