Megadeth's United Abominations...

Today was release day... what are your thoughts? How does it compare to System?

I've had it for about a month, System was better.

I am quite pissed that my pre-order is not only all the way back home, but buried amongst belongings as a result of my mother moving out of here house.

I was fully planning on buying it, but after hearing the whole thing, I'm not. "Washington Is Next" is the best song, by far, but nothing else comes close. "Gears of War" and "Sleepwalker" are okay too, but the rest are so boring. Me and my buddy listened to the whole thing on the way to Heaven and Hell last week and we were like, "Wow these songs are just... boring." The riffs, the melodies... blah, just blah. I thought System was a damn decent album, and I had decently high hopes for Abominations, but I really don't think it delivered.

I listened to it yesterday. It was ok, I had to give it a second listen because I did not pay too much attention but also I did not listen to something that I found objectionable (for example when I listen to Power Metal )

I like it. I don't know if it's better or worse than System. It's not amazing, obviously, but... I dunno. A lot of it is pretty rockin.

I bought it today on sale for $10.99 and listened to it on the way home.

It's a definite grower. Songs would start... and I would think.. BBOOOORRRRiinnnngggggg... but then it would seem cool. I can totally imagine hearing a set loaded with this at Gigantour, especially track 5. Also, the music is much better than the poorly photoshopped cover.
